Re: Bob's GT Forte scratch build.

Hi Bob,
No problems using my pics. I posted them so that other people would have reference material for a decent build and the stuff not covered in the build manual!

The main reason I moved the A/R bar mount was to give more room for the exhaust between the body and chassis rail. The original mounts would have been OK, as they are only reacting the moment arm of the torsion load in the bar

Keep up the good work Bob, you’re doing a cracking job

Failure is not an option, but cock-ups will happen

Re: Bob's GT Forte scratch build.

Thanks Andy.
I couldn’t see how the exhaust would work with the suggested layout.
I think your setup is more practical.
I don’t really like the plastic mounts but I will probably leave them for the time being.
What I didn’t like at all was the way the thing was supported from just the one side.

Re: Bob's GT Forte scratch build.

Looking good Bob. You have got a lot done. You must have been weather dodging! I see what you mean about the anti roll bar mountings. Much better to do them properly out of the way of the exhaust. See you Wed at the meeting.
