I've been on the lookout for more Rotus info and recently stumbled across these articles

do you own a Rotus? or just wondering about them. I now own Ser #93, and am starting to (will try) assemble a master index of all surviving Rotus cars. Considerations of a full website may be in order. I live just 25 minutes from where these cars were born. I almost bought a 'new' Rotus back in 1988, bu the x-wife wanted a camping vehicle vs another sports car.! :-)

Yes, #61. I got it almost 2 years ago, still not roadworthy though. Used to be a racecar, so I've been working on the used racecar issues. Currently re-wiring the beast.

If you guys have suspension-specific questions regarding the Rotus, I'm good friends with the designer that Custer hired to create the Rotus chassis.

I do have one Q for you guys.... front brakes. It appears mine (#93) used 1973 Toyota Corona (not Coralla, Corona) calipers. Like hens teeth these days.
So my Q is, what other front uprights were used here in combo with what ball joints top and bottom? My upper ball joint appears to be a Ford F-250 steering knuckle ball joint.

I've also found my upper arms are longer past the triangulated point than many were, so must have been an update to minimize the tie rod bending issue of its threaded section.
