The suspension pieces were hand finished and micro-coated to protect against corrosion. The Ohlins TTX36 coil overs are now holding the car up, as it rolls on its new wheels and tires for the first time.
Don't panic! This is not the ride height! Obviously the car will drop a couple of inches between the weight of the drivetrain, oil and fuel systems as well as interior and fluids. Then it will be adjusted to RSR spec.

With the Green Machine back from the paint shop, we have removed all the suspension pieces for powder coating, mono-balling, wheel bearings and the new Ohlins TTX36 shocks! The brakes are being finalized (remember, they have to fit inside of the 15" wheels). Oil cooling and tank are being installed and the fuel system is cleaned and upgraded.

Bumpers and latches will get done next week. Then we can modify (raise) the jack points and start doing the new suspension and brakes.

The 4.1 liter case is now assembled. The piston deck height is currently a little high but will be adjusted to perfection using custom made Rothsport Racing cylinder base shims. Since cylinders will be slipping into the spigot bores in the case with O-rings, the shims don't affect sealing and allowed us to improve connecting rod angle with longer Pauter rods. Like everything else on this car, it will be perfect!
