Rear Brakes 1st Assembly (1)The rear brakes were far more of a challenge, as for the IVA we need a handbrake, so I had to package the biggest caliper with a handbrake spot caliper whilst maintaining 10mm clearance to the mag rim for the handbrake linkage. All within the 15" rims. Read more..

front-brakes-1st-assembly (2)We have front brakes! After what must be 1 year of design work and with the support of HiSpec in Dartford to get the best package within the 15" mag rims, we received the last of the brake components this week. Read more..

Seat & Seat Buck (1)John was up at ARRK a couple of weeks ago which gave us both the opportunity to try the revised seat buck. We are both around 5' 11" and after folding ourselves into the seat, we both agreed we had the optimum back angle and profile that gave us just enough clearance for our heads with lid, best vision, best package for the thighs to wheel, and knees to chassis. Have to say it is a tight fit! Read more..

bodyshell-assembly-and-door-bucks (1)We did the first body assembly with the wheels and tyres last week, and the fit looks very good to the tyres. The fronts are nicely centralised in the arches, and the rear Michelin 335 / 35's are looking slightly low to where my CAD models predicted.....a tad to close the wheel arches! But the rear arch is approx 10mm to low, so that will improve the clearance. Read more..

Chassis-Rolling-Chassis (3)We have a rolling chassis! After 4 years and 2500 plus hours on CAD, it was very satisfying to eventually sit in the rolling chassis! We also weighed the chassis at this stage and 398Kgs.Next steps are to get the bodywork positioned correctly to the wheels, and then we will set-up datum fixing points for the shell, so we can remove and refit repeatable.
