I've been drawing with Wilwood brake calipers.
At AP I didn't find anything that fits.
Now I used Wilwood DP6A Calipers -six piston- max. what fits in.
Disc Diameter 11.00 / 279 mm

The issue of brakes can be quite a jungle ....:rolleyes:

It is not completely original, but made of 6mm aluminium sheet.
Alu honeycomb sandwich is too complicated for me.
Maybe less work than a tube frame, especially if the...

All lines are connected at nodes.

Almost everything is made of triangles
As a test and for illustration I also created the profiles.
Looks pretty heavy. There are about 500...
Thank you for your answer!

I'm not quite sure what you mean, can you draw a line on the picture to indicate which area you mean?
Thanks a lot!
I've taken some of your suggestions on board now.
I also had a good conversation with a car designer.
It was hard to make the foot space as big as necessary despite the long R8 wishbones.
we have also tried to consider the crash zone issue.
Everything not so simple....
Now I'll see what the...
