Default 246 engine and box

Hi

Are you updating the engine and gearbox on an existing deon/jhclassic's dino? Or are you looking at building a new dino? Only asking as if you are updating an existing deon obviously you'll be struck with the original deon shell and it's dimensions.. If you were building new replica and want to use a later shell (say a cascu 246 shell) then you may have more room for you chosen engine and gearbox-as the cascu has slightly more room behind the driver. I've attached a couple of photo's that show the wheel arch on the deon is closer to the rear edge of the door and some 2 inches further back on the cascu 246. The tail of the dino 246 is also longer by almost the same dimension.

size on deon photo is 14 inches-2 inches less than a 246 -photo is a bit blurred
