well after a weekend off working on my compact (up at otterburn) i have managed to get a fair bit done today, i have got my front mounting bar sorted for the sumpgaurd courtosy of Mr hockly. Quite pleased with the result i was unable to finnish the rear mount as i need to more material i should be able to sort that in the week :D

Nice one, thanks for posting the pics. 8)

I'm interested in the brace across the top of the sumpguard front mount, it's otherwise very similar to mine. (Mine's mounted to a threaded plate welded to the chassis rails.)

We considered the brace design and decided against, on the grounds that (hopefully) the chassis rails shouldn't move too much at the front. (Everything that counts is fastened to the x-member, or further back.)

Also, my mounting sits below the radiator and bracing it would have been inconvenient.

Sunbmw made a substantial brace (cow fender :mrgreen:) for the front of the chassis rails on my current car and I discarded it...

What's the forum feeling about bracing the front of the chassis rails? :?: (In excess of a non-'triangulated' sump guard mounting.)

believe it or not being a road rally car the gaurd will probly take more hammer than a stage car, i thought about making the hole front mounting bar removeable but i just thought i was adding more week points in the design. i have the added bonus of haveing free access to a jig and jig brackets for that car so if it did move the jegs up which is probbly going to happen, il take it for a ride on the jig :D. also i am not mounting it solid at the back of the gaurd, leaving the back of gaurd floating will allow the alloy to return to its propper shape after a impact. An issue that i have seen with a few road rally cars, they mount then that solid that instead of the alloy bending and flexing back it gets stretched as there is not enough movement to compensate for this, making it harder to remove and just dosnt last as long

i hope all of that made sence as it is early on a sunday morning haha

well i havent updated for a wile as i've not really had a lot to time to do a lot on the car. Although i have done my first event in it well kind of, i was cheif marshal on the AB motorsport road rally so i was first car on the road. had a blast few little things have been high lighted, but best of all i have proved a point that its quicker that them bloody protons and for less money haha. i have come to the conclusion that it needs more power and a hydrolic bar putting it, thinking of the 2.1 conversion maybe on the cards aswell as putting the lines in the car. then i spose i should think about putting a cage in it hhhmmmmmmm :roll:

it was great to get out in it for a good skid round :twisted:

yes mate the front of the garud is mounted solidly to the chassi legs and the back of the garud is on like a hanger, to allow the garud 2 flex rather then just bend ;p worked well just needs a few tweeks to the rear hanger and jobs a fish ;D
