New Rear Swing Arm Sorted
Alex has made this a lot stronger for me whilst still being very light.
Its that strong that the frame will now flex under power so additional bracing is required there now too

Yeah its looking good now. Everything is strong as well as being nice and light.
Were well behind schedule for this year but nearly there now. Hopefully, fingers crossed another 6 - 8 weeks and it'll be finished :)
Stay tuned..............

You cant beat a good weld can you! I'd gladly take the praise but cannot. Its my mate Alex at The Car Kitchen that is welding everything. I just gave him the instructions, Hes carrying out the work. Hes nearly finished now so I should have some more pics to show and then its final touches, dyno session then sprinting here we come :)
Stay tuned..............
