Glad your recovering mate car looks good. Would be good to have the engine a bit further forward.





Thanks

moving engine forward

thanks for the comments.
would love to move the engine forward , but restricted
by position of output shafts from the gearbox
I could move it maybe 20 to 30 mm forward as at the moment it dead central with the gearbox output and wheel ctr.
move more than 20 to 30mm and I think it would put to much strain on the shaft joints
I can tilt it 1 maybe 2 degrees but think that's it.
I was going to shove a lot of stuff forward to get more weight towards the middle ie battery ect.
minimal design and complication was what I was going for
was originally going for 450 kg. but having calculated it that's out should end up around 500 to 550 kg probably 520 dry tank
still just a design exercise at the moment

With all mid engine projects, I would recommend doing a weight distribution exercise.
Get lots of weight to the front, adjust wheelbase, get fuel tank @ Cof G.
Those that work best have more than 40% on the front axle with driver obviously.
From Weight distribution you can select tyre size and then suspension.

Have you considered an Audi engine and gearbox?

Longitudinal and probably a bit longer overall, but relatively cheap and may give a better balance to the car.

looked at Audi and Subaru
all to long and the boxes stick well out the back.
nice thought though

Angle the uprights parts of the chassis back about 15 degrees, especially the rollbar, will make it look a lot more 'sleek'. Looks a little utilitarian at the moment.

Will also want either a bulge outwards in the top horizontal (or a drop) to allow elbow room.

Found the reference for this, longer ago than I thought but may be worth a chat to them, if they have done the work then why re-invent the wheel -

i need clarification on "angle back"
I am under the impression that to comply with blue book the roll bar has to be vertical
if I'm wrong let me know please as I original designed the chassis with a 10 deg reverse angle and it did look much better.
I will admit I tend to design for function rather than style !
