You should re-do your steering shaft joints. Yokes are in wrong position.

Learned this during my engineering studies, but really understood that when I was building steering column for PV 544.

The problem was that short shaft wanted to jam and force steering wheel column. Steering kinda jumped over that point.

Boredom got the best of me and I made new adjustable shock tower plates. I couldn't adjust eh front too much before and the camber was excessive

Hey!

Nice work so far!!

I have reconsidered using Lexus LS400 rear end on my 242 and now will go for a nissan 350z back as it's a bit stronger and more available.

Keep up the good work!

Adam
