Nice to see those front suspension components. Any thoughts on using long travel components yet? I think this might be a great place to save some width. One problem I discovered with my wooden mock up is that if the wheels are pulled in too far they won’t clear the body wheel flairs. Raising the chassis is an option, but will reduce that cool impression of a low, mean look. My thought at this point is to make the ride height adjustable so you can have that low mean look when parked an loft the body a bit for driving. The original car solves this problem by placing the front wheels out far away from the body.

"Don't have any of my measurements with me, but I wonder if you can work the arch in the frame at the front wheels into the wheel flairs of the DOJ body. The body between the flairs is relitivily flat but of course the flairs extend upward at a pretty good angle and are slightly curved. The arch of the frame might work right into that depending on the width of the rails compared to the width of the body between the wheel flairs."

Here are some photo-images of the area in question.

That certainly looks like where the base of the wheel flairs might be. But you will probably want the suspension to attach more interior to that, so I don’t know.

Btw, looking at that last pic, I think the driver will sit almost in the back seat of the truck.

Have looked at using long travel components, modifying a 4WD 3500 front axel by welding in extra axel tubing, and at using a custom steel wheel for compensation.

That's about what I figure but am still exploring that aspect.

Looking at possibility of building a plywood internal cabin module like the one use in the Mobius 1/25 model and working the body around to fit it.

The hemi engine and transmission are massive and am studying possibilities for their relocation.

Did you ever decide where you were going to locate your engine/trans.

Heard first rumor on stand alone Batman movie that there is a possibility that the Batmobile will return with no visible weapons and only appear on Batman's command from hidden locations from within the body.
To me that translates into CGI.

Attached a photo-image that can be used with photo resize programs like paint etc for skewing studies. vertigo

Ooooo..... that sounds like a really interesting idea!

“Did you ever decide where you were going to locate your engine/trans.”

Yes, I will do the engine in the rear, facing backwards, with a v-drive like the original.
