Default vortex spec's

Hi
New to this thread but on another.
Can anyone here give me the details of this car? Wheelbase /track etc. Details of the running gear used. I'm currently building a dino replica but i'm looking to upgrade the deon chassis and was wondering if the vortex chassis would be any better as a starting point. I have my engine and gearbox sorted.
Are the chassis's still manufactured? Any details would be appreciated.

Hi Ian,

I'm currently nearing (I hope) then end of a GTT build. The only figure I have is front & rear track is 1592mm. Unfortunately my car is away at the trimmers so can't measure anything for you at the moment - maybe someone else can.

Yes the chassis is still being produced, Chris @Vortex could update you.

Alternatively a little while back there was an unfinished build at the rolling chassis stage that someone was selling - I can find out if it's still available if you think it might be of interest.

As far as other build details, have a browse of their website if you haven't already :
http://www.vortex-auto.com/vortex-gt...orts-cars.html

My engine/gearbox is from a Ford Focus 2.0 Ecoboost. Brakes are Rover/Granada, getting harder to source but I believe aftermarket may now be an option. There's also electric too.

Good luck with your build - a Dino was another I was tempted by.

Andy

Hi

Thanks for the reply. I've looked on his site and there's not really a lot of detail. Would really like a few photo's of the chassis. I'm looking at building my own to take my engine choice but based loosely around the dino one.
I have a deon dino but I keep altering it, cutting it, but I have the chance of a 246 shell that I know was moulded from a real car. Trouble is the 246 is longer than a 206 and also the deon version was shorter still,plus uses aging donor parts from the lancia beta and fiat 124!

Hi Ian,
For some reason my profile does not allow me to add attachments("You may not post attachments"). If you'd like to PM me your email address I can send you a few photos of my chassis if that helps.
