What Are Your Opinions On This Chassis...bit Different!

Recommended Posts

If the chassis isnt well supported it may bend where there are just the lengthwise

chassis rails. Maybe the floor panels will do the job.

 

Just found a pic. of the original chassis....that doesnt have what I expected either....

Its many many years since I built mine & the memory isnt too good..

Perhaps a full chassis shown on YouTube blogs.

I know there are all of the build dvd's and more.

The cheaper way to do it is fabricate your own, assuming you have the ability. With the engine you are fitting the car will be a pig if you leave the pillers on....

Here is a picture of a chassis I saw on ebay, after studying this the only part on mine that is different is the bar that goes across the engine bay, I just have a corner part for the steering rack. Not completely across http://postimg.org/image/b4byr77ih/also looking into the wishbones I'm much more tempted after reading your comments! Does anyone know anybody selling an old set? Also looking on gbp there are two different types but the pictures and discription are the same? Many thanks for all you help....joe

One type is with straight side bars that nearly hit the springs and make caster adjustment somewhat limited.

The second set for the 2b from GBS is what they call the new handling kit. There is a bend in one arm and they give a 6/7' rake for caster.

Mine was wishbone when I bought it but the improvements when I fitted the handling kit made the expense well worth while.

Ignore my last. They are for different wheel offsets.

One set et15

The other 37.

I think it would be a different measurement on the mudguard supports.

Not sure mate. As add says ask the seller.

If not off a rh, be weary.

If they are, do they fit your particular chassis model.

The large bottom one looks about right but will take measurements from mine tomorrow if you woul like.

Looking at them again I don't think they will fit they are made for a locust. I think il bit the bullet and buy from gbs! Unless anyone is selling a set on the forum.....wish full thinking 😂

If you have Time, they do appear now and again but not the better new type.

As you said, bite the bullet.

It is Christmas after all, so another prezzy won't be out of order. (Especially if swimbo don't know of it).
