Front wheels were 8.5'. Unfortunately, on this picture I was missing rear plastic covers (with them, it was much better).

I've been playing around with suspensions and first tests are really promising! Duk & Kevin, I wish to thank you again for more than useful tips!

Custom made upper arm with sliders for camber setup and longer upper ball joint for roll center correction.

Bilstein B46 re-valved to stiffer and converted to coil over:

Front springs 80 kg/cm work together with std torsion bars (for now). Car handles really good and stays neutral while cornering.

This one I don't understand... the only advantage I can see is maybe more dynamic camber when suspension moves up in a corner, that's all.

In a low car (lower arms beyond horizontal) it will raise the roll centre and decrease the change in roll centre height as the suspension compresses.

Nice! Since you have full coilovers and adjustable length upper arm, you can now start on a lighter and extended lower a-arm.

Thank you! Lower arm is on my wish list too, but before that season of driving and learning new setup is top priority. :)

Hi , it's a shame all your images have gone as was just going back through topic and looking for your suspension pics . Can you post some more of roll cage . I'm interested to see how far back you have the main roll hoop , ie how far is it from the chassis crossmember over the tunnel . I guess it also depends if you're running pedal box ( your case not ) and what type of seat . Currently planning a build of a 75 race car and must suit second driver who is 6.3 ft hence the interst :)

Hi! Bad host does wonders... :(

I'll snap some pictures of your interest. I've moved main hoop backwards to have more space for legs and maybe in future pedal box - also seat "ears" where close. Note that you will have to cut out seat stands since they are to high. I'm 186 cm tall and I had issues while using helmet.

More details soon...
