    It will be close. Still the first prototype of it, so can easily change if needed.

    A nice surprise from Currie showed up. Fabricated rear end, nodular iron case, floater axles, Tru Trac and more. A very nice unit!

    Have to agree, some impressive work and skill shown there. Keep it up.

    A few pics and pieces or tidbits from the R&D, FEM or Simulation department would be nice to see, too.
    Having the car, or major parts of it as scanned CAD parts would make the development and fabricating a lot easier I think.

    And than again, having the CAD data a simulated run on the track with the new suspension parts would take some guesswork out of the designs probably.
    Always love to see the engineering part of these products, though more often than not stuff like that is under NDA :(

    We will be sure to share some of our R&D stuff. We also have bumpsteer and camber graphs we just completed, also measuring roll center and Ackerman. I usually always snap some photos of R&D so I will keep adding them. Thanks for watching!

    Seats are in. We decided on the Sparco Evo II's, they are very comfortable, fit the body tight while still allowing a few different size people to use them. This is was important to us as we have a few people that drive.

    We are also finishing up the cage.

    Do I spy rubber/poly mounts on that subframe? Not going with solids?
