You had me at "82 cm wheelbase"

Agree with Bentley - pictures pictures pictures.
Even if it's just a picture of the motor and the wheels, we love it.

Lots of pics and regular updates would be great.

Your build looks amazing so far,

i like how you have made jigs for every part to be held together,

and that tube frame looks extremly strong and very well built, looking forward to seeing your build progress[sm=teeth_smile.gif]

very nice, I'm set to start my tube chassis build pretty soon, your jig idea is inspiring...i was wondering the best way to make a small jig for the frame...i know how now.
i plan on a semi scale icelandic formula off road jeep for some mental hill climing...loads of old gravel pits round my way.

keep those photos coming
