Single seater dimensions - trailer size question

I'm wondering if the likes of an OMS 28, OMS 2000 or Force PC would fit on to a Brian James Minno Shuttle trailer. I'd assume definitely not with the standard wheels fitted but what about with slim line transport wheels? Possibly removing front wing too?

From what I gather a Minno Shuttle has load area dimensions of:

Load bed length 11ft (3.0m)
Load bed width 5ft 5ins (1.65m)
Internal height 4ft 7ins (1.40m)

If someone could supply overall widths and lengths of the above cars that would be of great benefit.

Thanks,
Oli

roughly speaking from my experience of looking at sizes of similar sized single seaters the overall width outside to outside of the rear tires are around 1.9m, overall length is around 4.5m (and you may save around 1m removing the nose/front wing, you will find the front to rear wheel centres will be close to 3m

My OMS CF09 is 1.8m wide (outside edge of tyres).

I slung a tape accross the rear of a 28 and it was around 150mm narrower from memory. 2000Ms and Force PCs are narrower again, but I've not had a sneaky measure of them. My car is clearly the widest in the 1100 class when you see it.

I think you'll probably get most of the common cars on there with the nose off. And easily with 'trailer wheels'

I've recently swapped from a Brian James + Jedi (6 & 8" rims) to a rather clever Woodford wide body trailer and Hornet (8 and 10" rims)

FYI: The Hornet is 5' 6" wide. I wasn't keen on the transport wheels option because I don't have room for 8x rims in the car. I've not tried putting fronts on the back but that may well resolve your challenge?

Picture is of my (old) Jedi in a Brian James Minno that I also converted to an enclosed trailer - it fitted justtrailer 12 compressed.jpg

my 2000M is 67 inches across the rear with wheel centres just under 8ft. total length of the car is 13ft but I do have an extended wing support.

I had a single seater and a Minno. It didn't fit great. Side walls of the tyres rubbed on the sides and the overhang meant I had to remove the nose and transport it in the car.

I sold it and got a bigger Brian James Trailer in the end.

Thanks for all the info. Seemingly a Minno Shuttle is not going to work easily, pity as they just about fit in a single garage.

@Jeditime, which model of Woodford have you got?

Thanks

I had a minno max and my 2000m would only just fit on it with the 10s on the back

I don't see mine listed. Its 5'10" x 12' with 12" wheels and a 950kg load. I have seen a few change hands on UHR for circa £1000. A 13' bed would be better. My nose overhangs the back.
