Thank you
The brass looking things are the springs for the dzus fasteners to mount the belly pan.




The frame is a 90's Volvo color with some extra gray tinting... It looks very white in photos, and in reality it is more white than the NASCAR gray I was going for but its grown on me and the more I look at it the more I like it.

Nice project. I see a lot of areas where we think alike - long control arms to slow down geometry changes, control arms on slugs for roll center adjustability, etc. (Sutton Kool-Aid - LOL) My track project has the same features. I'll try to update my thread so I don't hijack yours. Here is a link to my Focus build thread on the Focus Forum that shows some of the same suspension geometry mods on that car. [Only registered and activated users can see links. Click Here To Register...] Again, you have a great build going and it should work really well on track.

Thanks, Pappy! The front clip is all Ron's stuff along with the big piston ST60's. The rear is my own design utilizing a C4 diff and knuckle (hoping for any comments or criticism from you since youve been there already) This is my first time with more racecar oriented stuff so Ill be watching your thread closely.

PS... I skimmed through the Focus thread... very innovative using the MKI/III stuff together. I bet its a blast to drive (and competitive!!)

DMP Fab just sent me some pictures of the competed brake/hub assembly... SKF hubs with Strange Engineering 5/8 studs, and my custom ST40/ C5 rotor brake caliper bracket. Cant wait to get these in my hands and on the car!
