Tatuus Turbo

Given the popularity of this project section thought I would share my latest project which has been in the CAD stage for a while. The first CNC bits arrived last week so it's time to start work.

I'm using the Tatuus FR2000 tub that I ran a couple of years back, I'm having a whole heap of help from a gifted young engineer with the CAD and suspension geometry. The idea is to actually design the whole thing before I start to build which is essentially what has happened.

Today I fitted the bottom tub bracket, the engine shear plate and the two lower control arm mountings on the tub. The LCA mountings are using an existing stud and a bolt for which I have had to create a hard point.
