This was created at the request of my good customers.
 
It's the C/R GVP nose, but with connected pans, so builders can make a torsion style chassis, common at BPR, in SoCal, and in Japan with the Retro Tokyo gang.
 
Precision CNC milled from .032" top quality brass.
 
$28.00 each.
 
Will be available through distributors.

Pretty darned good. I've built a couple of torsion cars in the last month using another plate and this would have been much less work. Have to admit that I was a little surprised how well they run.

If I might ask......what is the length from guide center to trailing edge of the pans?

 

Thanks!

Below is an awesome chassis built by Andrew Ford, who persuaded me to come out with it.

He obviously elected to use one of my 2 degree, steel guide tongues.

Note how a simple addition, on the design of the tongue, those two small laser cuts, references, and aids in the construction.
