That is intense! Quality work, from the looks of it.

Its just a shell, and already looks intimidating...

I don't know anything about cage design, but it certainly does look great. With how tight that fits, any reason why it wasn't gusseted right to the A-pillars?

That strut brace certainly looks both superfluous and wimpy now.

Actually we were uncertain about welding it to the A pillars, we decide not to do it because we want the car to flex a little bit. (I'm not sure if the appendix 253 from FIA allows it too)

The strut brace is thin and light but enough. Still deciding if I do a X (in aluminium) connecting the front...

Hard to sure, but those calipers look like early aluminum "S" calipers.

Really nice looking roll cage. I don't see the typical harness bar for the shoulder belts? Are you going to run them from the horizontal bar above and behind the rear seats?

Really interesting way to do the removable section to the front shock towers. I've not seen it done like that before - great idea! I'm sure you checked, but I hope that one bar doesn't interfere with the steering linkage... : )

Looking great so far!

Best,
Tom

Well, I'm going to use a 6 point harness, it was added 4 points in the chassis, as you can see bellow (those circle things) and for the other 2 points I'll use the rear seat threads or the bar.


From the experience we've the bar won't interfere at all with the steering column.

Yeah like the removable X to the strut towers. I am also curious how the steering and Brake master/booster fit.

Yeah if you could tie the A pillar to the cage and the a pillar to the front strut tie in "X" that would be the bomb.

I am also no cage expert but as I think about it not sure the front strut "X" was worth the trouble. Looks fantastic quality and very safe.

Also, why would "too stiff"be bad? Usually the stiffer the better I thought.

Guys, I'm having trouble which way should I go with a suspension set up...

Should I:

- Buy a new RSR struts from bilstein 2300€ plus around 600€ for springs and tops
- Modify original struts with threads. Around 600€ with springs
- Leaving everything as it is

HELP!!!

BE

Much more knowledgeable people here than me, but I think this may be a decision that requires more information like overall weight of car, engine, brakes, TB, Wheels, intended use, etc. I think once those questions are answered, you may be better informed as to the direction you should take. No lack of experience in this forum and I suspect someone will recommend contacting Elephant Racing.

Thanks, well, the car is still being built, but from my experience the car will weight around 900kg, 175hp, 15" wheels, aluminium calipers "S". It will be used for racing, tarmac rally and hillclimb

I would talk with Elephant Racing. With a lightweight car that you intend to use for varied activities, they may recommend something that easily adjustable to accomplish your goal. As for specific recommendations, I am not equipped to answer but can offer who I would talk with.
