Default chassis

Hi Ross

Unfortunately I was beaten to it-but looking at it now it appears to be an updated deon chassis. The front wishbones look exact copies of the deon ones on mine. Mine uses fiat 124 on the front (later lada which believe it are still available new!!) and lancia beta at the rear.
Classic replicas in a last gasp before they disappeared updated the deon chassis to be more in keeping with the real thing along with lookalike wishbones and uprights with the correct 5 x 108 wheel spacing's and a newly moulded bodyshell. I've seen one part built and they look good. Fitted with the later alfa v6 engine and box. Not sure what doner parts are on it though.
Still in the planning stage at the moment with my chassis although I have mocked it up in wood. Trying to source front and rear uprights or even have some cnc machined to my own design based on the fiat 124 then using a modern 5x108 hub part that bolts on (similar to the LB stratos)
