Default Chassis Images

Starting chassis design for my scratch built. Wondered if anyone had some good detail shots of their chassis. I have several chassis books but trying to get info on various mid-engine chassis as well.

Thanks,

Default Clarification

I am mostly interested in seeing the wishbone setup on the rear. I can't decide if I should go the wishbone route or strut and trailing arms. In looking at the Contour (Mondeo) it looks possible that I can move the entire suspension to the rear and replace the steering with trailing arms.

Read an article recently about someone transplanting the front of a FWD to the rear as you describe. He set the steering arms up with ball joints and some sort of turnbuckle so he could alter the rear toe in/out depending on weather he was using the car for the road or racing.

Have you checked your p.m's recently ?

In Madrid until 12 May. Hope to get started when I return. As I need a detail I will request specifics.

If you know where I could find the article with the front suspension on rear I would appreciate it.

Bill
