any pics of how the clutch slave cylinder is mounted? looks like its hung off the gearbox istelf? ive seen it done in a couple of different ways - and im considering which way would best suit my aplication.

great chassis btw - any sneak previews of the body?

Marco,
Can you talk about the suspension itself? They look like nice coilovers. Great work, and do you have additional views of those frame horns bars?

thanks for speaking up!

Here's a zoomed in pic of the slave, I didn't get any other pics of the underside... You definitely need it all mounted to the trans or you will get clutch judder when the trans twists relative to the body...

I remember the original JMR plan was to use a brand new Mexican body, not sure if the whole project was sold or just the chassis?

i have some pics of the car 5 years ago, when i was mating the pan with the wheels to the body and wings, and making sure everything would fit and not rub, the body is a mexican bug it was all of JM old car that has been compleatly updated!! just waiting for the 500hp :D motor to come from John now!!!

thanks

If the rest of this car is as good as the chassis it will be out of this world! I saw this at Volksworld too and was really impressed:shocked:. Look forward to seeing the finished article.

Matt Keanes car was awsome too (cant believe it didnt win best of show) and I believe you had a hand in that too Marco!:cool:

thanks for the zoomed in pic ricola - marco would you be able to comfirm how you attached the slave cylinder at the clutch arm end?

ricola good point about about mounting it to the trans rather than the framehorns

Wow, this looks cool :)

volkdent January 14th 2011 13:19

That's so weird, it's like deja vu when I look at the cuts he's made to the body, I even have the rear air intake area opened up almost identically. Of course you can eat of his and you might get a little dirty trying on mine! What is planned for the engine? That's a lot of space for 'something'.....
