I visited with Greg at VMC yesterday. He received disappointing news from the company that was building my front suspension. They just couldn't do it. So this brought us back to square 1. Use a VW front axle ! Greg said that it will get a rack and pinion steering box. They figured out how to do that with not too much trouble. Needless to say, I was disappointed but then I was happy to get things moving again.
The rear suspension will be set up for a Subaru engine and Subaru transaxle though. The shifting will be accomplished with a shift rod, not cables.
After doing research and locating an old friend who worked as an engineer for Kelsey-Hayes , we determined that the disc brakes supplied by EMPI (and others) are more than adequate to stop this 1375 lb car. If I was to do serious competitive racing, front brake assemblies would have to be changed out to a larger/better one. Something like a Wilwood or other.
So upward and onward ! Things should start happening faster now and I'm glad for that !..........................Bruce
