Mike,


How much did you bump the spring rate at the rear to deal with the anticipated wing down-force?


Have you considered suspension "tattle-tales" to monitor the effect of the wing?

This section of bonnet was my biggest worry regarding symmetry. Obviously the scoops and how they blend into both the cat walks and power lump, any difference would be obvious. Countless hours spent hammer and dollie did the trick.

I can't imagine the feeling of cruising the streets in a car you hand built yourself...especially one that looks like THAT!

Amazing.

I'd be scared witless to drive that fine machine in many places, tbh. Probably safer on a racetrack.
