Wow they are expensive! You can get a pair of alloy Cortina uprights for 195 + VAT, you then just need a new set of top wishbones (extended by 19mm I believe) and a new pair of steering rack extensions. Granted you may need to source a pair of Cortina hubs but I can't image they will be too expensive.

I had the first pair they sold , I am building a mk indy rr for the road and aiming for under 500kg , slight problem with the outside diameter of the hub meaning they had to scrap existing hubs and remake a new batch, got them fitted and look great , the weight difference is crazy. A good saving in unsprung weight.

How much do these weigh?
My car weighs in at 520kg - mk indy, full cage, cbr900, full of oil/coolant/fuel, a couple of daft tools in the back and fully road legal
I dont think I could justify 450+vat! absolutely bonkers!

Though they do look brilliant!
