That is pretty awesome, shame its all hidden under the bodywork.

interesting conception, this mixture of non factory 'spaceframe' and roll-cage and factory frame.

The 'push rod' suspencion is also notable ..maybe we can get some more background info from our scandinavian members ?!


to name the things if I see them, that's what I call integrity..

can someone out of our *scandinavian group* enlighten us more on this all ?

I'm for example very interested in drawings and detail plans of the cage/suspension 'stiff up'... .

On the thread, go to page 2 and 3.... there are tons more pictures there, I especially like the one showing the underside (beautifully clean) showing the 3 pneumatic pistons which lifts the car off the ground to quick change the tyres. Also, neat to see the frame and sheeting that replaced the wood bulkhead.

the push-rod & wishbone looks slightly 'crude' on the first pictures ? ..but if it works as expected.. :thumbup:

would be interesting to get detailed informations on how to cover all the load-points & suspension pick-ups
