Following on from comments made on Facebook, where Robbie from Steeda UK reckoned that over arches were passé :lol: I bodged up a quick visual of an alternative to consider. Bear in mind that the top image with bolt on arches is what we were thinking at the start of the project, when we had the renders done. Latest thinking is to fab out of steel and blend in nicely. But before we do, it's worth exploring options innit?

Well, race season is apparently over on Monkey Island, so the drag-ape has stopped dragging his knuckles from strip to strip and has got his hacksaw out at last. Keeping his plans top secret as always but here's a teaser from his Polaroid camera: Upper & lower mount brackets for the front-front wishbone mounts. Holes are 12mm. Square cut out wraps around the chassis. Top mount furthest out, bottom mount low & in.

Scribblings from the Ape's maths book. Plans for the front suspension showing camber-up on bump. From droop to bump in this plan is around 110mm (the standard 4" for this kind of thing) And if you look at the hub, you'll see it goes from parallel (will actually be a couple of degrees in) to 5 degrees at full bump. Ergo, the difference between the wheel at droop vs bump will always be 5 degrees+
