Jeezz.. looking at the competition coming in 2023..... New tubular front end for a tubular twin turbo V8 M3. I guess its meant for beating Cayman clubsports.
Though, I do not see the advantage of having the A-arms with such a wide base.

Lol... my future adventures are in the hands of Shaun from AED. But it looks like will be needing lots of reliable HP for 2022. Latest count is 7 vanilla Porsche gt4 cars and 3 clubsports... Looks like the correct term for a goup of Caymans is a "Bask" (Ok, its actually Caimans, but like buggng them as being a lesser sort of crocodile).

As for Santa, just asking for 500rwhp.

Well had some interesting news. the regular flavor GT4 cayman cars that we have here are not the stock. They go off to the local porsche shop and get a race only tune, new manifolds, revised sway bars and suspension goodies and then they loose them on us at the track. Makes me feel better that we can still beat them with the good olde chariot axle car. Now just have to wait till the new engine is built. Looks like almost all the parts have arrived but I think it will be a 2022 build in the end. Fingers crossed!!!

New tubular front end for a tubular twin turbo V8 M3
I think that's actually a rear end assembly - you can make out one of the toe links on the right side. Could be using the same upright/knuckle at all 4 corners to reduce spare parts inventory, with tie rods at front and toe link at the rear. If it is a front end, I agree that the wishbones are awfully wide. Which I think is what the dark wooly one was referring to - as soon as the driver puts in some steering lock, the inside wheel rim would machine through the wisbone. Being a rear end, they may run a wheel with less backspacing than in the front (e.g., Trans Am TA1 or IMSA DPi) so the wide arms are even less of a concern.

Bob, your pizza is in the mail!! Dang, Tyme is correctomundo , the Nuevo El Presidente of Chile is half my chronological age. I have often been accused of acting half my age, so I kind of feel a kinship to the youngster. It will be interesting the direction Chile moves in the coming years, but I imagine we will get up to date info from our South Amerian Racer and Bon Vivant, El Loco Sombrero!

Here we are just waiting to see how many communist cabinet members the new government will have... Now these are real badge carrying full fledged communists, not just a label to use loosely..... Think... far to the left of your Ocasio Cortez.

Just strapping the helmet on and hunkering down..... Why do people to stupid things all the time??
