Love the Stratos - one of the coolest cars ever made.

Amazing outstanding craftsmanship as always, Vass.
I wish I had one tenth of your patience to do things like that.
But as I haven't I'll just keep watching your projects

Chassis will be like Aston's. All aluminum but not in the same design.
The mane characteristics are the very long arms and the adjustable, from a screew out of it, diff, from 0% - 100% lock. New hubs, callipers, disc rotors and my new ,promising exhaust.

Reading my post again I realise that it came across a bit wrong...

I didn't mean that people don't do it as a hobby, clearly they (you included) do - I was more referring to your skills.
I thought that maybe you were/used to be in the engineering business, that's all.

My 'skills' were useful before cnc's time.
Now it easy to make parts from your computer and with an e mail to cnc cut lab.

I'll continuie built mine, with old school way, a bit hard, a bit dangerous but low cost ( only time ) and gives a chronic smile to face.

That's the big difference between 'design and built by my hands' than a 'cnc made part.' The smile and the .... beers, during the built.

To be honest, I would like to make my brand name on rc's word, but Im not good in buiness , too old (50 years) and in bad time ( criris).


Keep the smile and the beers, only.

I just love this. Mechanical porn But i was wondering if you are able to adjust the toe in/out on these rear arms? Or are you going to make something adjustable in the hubs?

I select 1 deg toe in from the design and thats all.

I could adjust the toe from hubs, with new..... hubs or new arms.
