Haynes Roadsters do not have 19 in wheels or 4 wheel drive as standard. 25 anti dive geometry has been incorporated for better handling.
Trial fitment of the Rover V8 engine goes well at first but the solenoid is occupying the same space as the 4x4 prop-shaft.
Making suspension brackets for this Haynes Roadster has been very slow work, hopefully it will pay off soon.
Is round tube really stronger than square tubing? Surely square tube has a higher cross sectional area. How can I build a lighter and stronger chassis.
Kit Car Tube Chassis can be very tricky. Just because everything fits doesn't mean that the engine gearbox or differentials will fit. The look of the car often comes last.
Push rod rear suspension is definitely the way to go on a Haynes Roadster.
The MT75 4x4 gearbox has been trial fitted to my Haynes Roadster. Unfortunately, I may have a very small modification to one chassis rail.
The standard Haynes Roadster chassis needed some additional strength added to it's gearbox tunnel. I given this car a backbone chassis similar to a Lotus.
Having a chassis table can serious increase the speed that which you build your Haynes Roadster, Locost or McSorley 442 chassis.
I'm not the first to mount a 4x4 front diff into a Haynes Roadster and at the speed I work at it's not surprised. It's not just a case of welding on some brackets there was a ton of calculations.
