All same as p50 to start with , plenty of room under there to change it around if it doesn't drive well

I am watching this one. So I have ideas for when I eventually start mine.

Are these the suspension you brought from Grasshopper?

Na I made these , the one grass hopper use is the same one that goes on a p50 , ( don't no why I brought it looking back now) I wanted bigger wishbones for some reason, in the picture obviously it's up on axle stands so to high but you get the idea

These are off grass hopper but they are just high speed trailer wheels and tires, I'm sure they are 6" , few bits through today

Perfect family car! Got the rubber mounts for the suspension fitted , sits on its 3 wheels now for the first time , just got to try and think of a way to do the steering

Got a few bits done today , all mock up to see if it works before making stronger parts but steering( which went wrong as bearing wasn't up to the job ) handle bars , tie bar and got it running, I will get that bearing sorted tomorrow and have a little drive
