this weeks photos. it may seem like a lot of Lyka upper chassis stuff again but it does show how long it can take to get these large kits done.

the main chassis rails are very complicated, and feature most of the small brackets and fittings we have made over the last few weeks.

the cross members have their fair share of brackets...

Lyka parts look great! Really shaping up now. I can see what you were referring to with all the small brackets and parts. I’m sure it is like the old saying “measure twice ....”
Thank You Craig and crew for your hard work.

Hi Ian/Craig
There is a interesting thread on traction talk just now on a half size dyno you might like to look at in the model engines section
Someone is fitting 3 smaller motors in there casting so you can fit a through shaft
