Hey right on. Looks kinda familiar
I like your "locost" steering wheel. The fab work looks good great. What is your projected wheelbase, I know you were shooting for the 95 range, but with the seat taking up a tad more space it may have grown. You will notice that the pedals are offset to the centre of the car when they are installed. I sat in a Porsche GT3 RSR recently and noted they were more to the centre than my car. I will put some grip tape/wingwalk compount on the verticle frame rail to the immediate left of the clutch pedal to act as a rest when not using the clutch. Do you have plans to extend your build table to rig up/build the rear end when the time comes? Just curious.
Keep up the good work.
haha you have no idea how inspiring your work is. Every time i check your thread (like everyday) it makes me want to build.
Yea the steering wheel is quite the work of art. Id say its one of my best.
I was aiming for 95 but it will end up a bit more. It will see over 90% street so while it would be nice, im not overly concerned. The little extra room behind the seat is for the gas tank and just storage. Im waiting for my Diff to come in for some final measurements and ill draw it in Solid Works. Once i get it ill mock the rear up with wood and ill have a final number. My current plan is for the diff to bolt up via a large aluminum 2 sided housing. I like the idea of being able to pull the shafts out and pull the motor with the differential and inboard brake setup as one unit. If it works out to be too expensive ill go for route 2, but im going to give it my best.
Ive been waiting on the diff then im submitting my CAD to Motive to see if he can mill the aluminum side plates for a reasonable cost between labor and materials.
As for the pedals, i planned mine to be just a bit more centered then yours. I tend to wear skate shoes, boots, and other wide shoes a bit so i need a bit more space. Its not everyday i drive with my skinny pumas.
As for the table, yes i plan to extend it for sure. Because its been like 20* for the last 2 months i like the extra bit of moving room. Once i get to the rear (thinkin a few weeks) ill build the section. My bro wants to build a sub box so im going to split the board with him lol... gotta stick to the budget
