You must have an in with someone for them to allow you to take pictures of their suspension setup. That's usually as top secret as cam specs for most guys.

Dave - You're right that maybe only a few of the entire forum have access to the actual cars, especially this close. At the risk of sounding greedy, how about some front suspension shots? Thanks for keeping us informed so that we can bring that realism to the scale world.

This car is probably the best scaled pro mod ever.
Good work methods, I will make a chassis jig inspired by your's for my 1:16 inter kb5 chassis.
Thanks a lot to share your knowledge.

Just mind blowing Dave , what an incredible piece of art !

I love to see those reference photos in the background. Did you have a set of plans for the chassis or did you work off of photos and on-site observations?
Posted 09 December 2013 - 02:14 PM

ted, i have plans. i have measurements. i have photos. very shortly i'll be getting to the front end. i'll post front shots then.
