Back at it

Made the upper control arms after finally deciding on a design. The arms still need to be reinforced along the joints that meet the chassis, this is them about 50% finished. Still its good to get back on Lotus after not touching it for a couple months, being too wrapped up in the Z.

Looks like there will be about 3" of travel in both directions before binding.

Im thinking pushrod suspension will be the only way since there isn’t enough room for coilovers to pass through the control arms with a decent angle to meet the chassis.
