Some of the suspension pieces come from mid 70's to mid '80 Toyota (Celica, being the major parts that people are searching the bone yards for). Talk to Jim at https://www.vmsmotorsports.com/; He has what you need. He ships overseas as well. In the UK, I don't know how availability is on these parts. You can always check with your nearest dealer and save a ton on shipping.

Congratulations on finishing your first full year!
First year is always a little rough... So much to learn! Sorting out a new chassis is always a challenge; As I am sure the FZ09 was as well.
Not sure what your engine issues were that caused their demise; I am hopeful that you have a good engine package to start with next year.
Now starts the rebuild season. lol! Time to check over the chassis and every bearing, nut, bolt, wire, etc... to give you a great start to next season.
Thank You for sharing your experiences.
Best of luck in 2020!

First full year, been rough to say the least.
Added second car for my 14 year old Nephew and Daughter, that that has been a bright and exciting spot.
Loaned out my first car for one night to a great driver, he experienced some troubles with his in the heat race, I struggled all year with car, he got in it started last and drove to the front, guess I know what the problem is. 
Added a new chassis and a FZ09 to the mix of things, struggled with some complications right off the bat.
In a nut shell, lost 3 engines, and totaled one car, so back to one car.
Again brite side was getting to race with nephew and daughter.  We have a lot to learn but in it for the long haul. Met so many new great people and made many new friends, all worth it!

Check the rule book on page 101; There are a lot of measurements for the frame on that page.

Setup and Handling / Front End & Frame Alignment/Specs
« Last post by barboni on September 08, 2019, 10:42:46 pm »
We had a pretty good wreck last weekend and tore off the right front spindle/wheel. Looking to put the car back to correct alignment but wasn?t sure if the frame was tweaked or what exactly that should look like. I believe we have all the correct tooling as we have tram bars and caster/camber tools but does anyone know what spec looks like. Hoping for some sort of document illustrating measurement points for frame and an alignment procedure. Thank you in advance!

Setup and Handling / Re: Corner weights

Hi Matt,
Each wheel is weighed to get the percentages. Google race car set up sheet and you will come up with many different options. Pick the one that works best for you.

You also asked the question as to if anyone "strings" their car?". It is still done the old school way by many a budget racer.  A lot of people are using lasers now days. Here is a fair article on how it is done:

Dose any one pay attention to the actual weight that each wheel is on the scales or only precentages
