    Brian, one can see the rotating housing for balancing out equal side bumps down in the chassis. I´m with you on that. But in cornering this works like a "controlled roll" bar ( even if the levers are not pivoting on the torsion bar). if the outer turn wheel goes in it will push his bell crank...

    DCT in a GT40

    Mechanicwise it should be not different from adapting any other transaxle. Requires custom made adapterplate, driveshafts and transmounts.

    Servo assisted steering and brakes - why?

    STeering on my RCR does not need any servo support in slow and fast speeds. One can park this car onehanded. It is not the quickest steering, but perfect in high speed runs and corners ( did a 290km/h run last sunday with one hand on the steering wheel and one hand on the shifter, it is as easy...
