    McLaren replica build base on a Manta

    I should have figured as much Terry but my curiosity forced me to ask! Sounds very strong indeed! I’ve always found aero to be an interesting balancing act ever since I had added a substantial spoiler to the rear deck of my Corvette racecar back in the mid 70’s. After repairing some cracked...

    Terry - Your work, as usual, looks great! I am curious what sort of support(s) you have under the rear spoiler to transfer the generated downforce to the chassis..
