Thanks mates.


A little about AM project.

- Engine : R 460 http://www.chungyang.com.tw/en/product01-r460.html
in the spirit of muscle cars.Low cost engine, without special pipes, cylinders and with bass sound as befitting to AM.

- Chassis : aluminum + stee tube. Light weight and strong.

- brakes : 4 disc rotors, hydraulic callipers

-tyres : BRP ,http://www.bishopracingproducts.com/ , maybe with home made alouminum rims

- transmission : 2 belts or chains and self lock diff

-suspension : double arms for each wheel, adjustable absorbs


My aim is a balanced, super car.
