If you have hub to hub and you know the tyre size you can calculate the rest.

It might help if you told us what you were doing?

Is this going to use the sub-frames and Honda engine from your last ill-fated TF project? I thought you sold them off?

Sorry, just seen this and I'm too soft to go and measure my in the rainy dark. If nobody has done it sooner I'll do it tomorrow.
I thought you'd abandoned MGS for drift cars? ? Welcome bsck- your last project was brilliantly nuts.

I remember that on Dieter web site he posted a skecth with main chassis dimensions for frame control and alignement.
I hope it will be a useful starting point

Thanks bud this one will be much more insane!

I loved the TF VTEC. I learnt basically every area of car building and made lots of mistakes, but I don't regret them. It was an amazing experiance and tought me enough to get where i am now!

This will be much much MUCH more insane. not only will it have an engine swap. But every factory suspension componant and the subframes will be replaced by lighter stuff that will be adjustable. (Track bias build)

Lastly it'll run hub swaps so I can fit some brakes that will make AP 4 pots look tiny.
