Find out what the wheel base and track is on their body shell. If they are the same as the original my chassis can fit with a small amount of fabrication. I have chassis built and ready to ship.

Back in September, Paul, you said 'I have chassis built and ready to ship.' I'd be very interested in learning more about your chassis.

I'd like to build an RS60 with the 718 type screen as you have done. I've studied your RS60 Project thread and visited your photobucket link but that's all I have been able to find. I understand the original body is in alloy but that you were going to produce further bodies with some panels in alloy and others in composite. It all sounds very interesting, I was wondering how far you had advanced and what I could get from you to help me get started.

Body shells have come to a grinding halt due to the extortionate cost of getting the scan made into a fibre glass mould.
I do how ever have complete rolling chassis with transmission I can sell you. I will get some pictures uploaded.

I am sorry to hear about the difficulties associated with getting the body into production but I am still interested in the chassis and transmission. I have sent you a pm.
