I am really anxious to hear how this project is coming. I am building a track/sunny weather miata and I am trying to decide on doing your kit or something else. When will the new one be available with the one piece front end? Do you have a weight on a completed one?

Hi, we did try a roll bar. I then increased the steel height under the rear grp to improve protection without a bar. We could also fit a MSA spec bar, this would be a good car to race. Sorry about the current photos, not from the best angles. Side profile is best. Colour scheme is not to everyone's taste either, nor are the wheels, but that is the advantage with kit cars.
Does anyone have any idea of the torsional rigidity for the Superlight chassis. I live in Brisbane, Australia and our authorities have some rather strict rules around ICV's. One of the requirements is that the chassis of an ICV must pass certain figures for beaming and torsion tests, There is a formula based on the weight of the vehicle but many of the engineers will just ask for 4000nm per degree. I s the chassis for the superlight likely to pass this figure?
