Dean waves his magic wand and sticks the chassis together. Our revolving jig-welding bench allows us to fully weld the chassis before releasing the jig clamps, thereby ensuring a perfectly straight chassis.
Bending the tube.
Hand formed 4130 chrome-moly tubing for the prototype X1 main chassis rails. With a bit of patience we can produce incredibly accurate curved tubes in low volume. The mild steel mock-up chassis will be trashed and the chrome-moly chassis will replace it on the prototyping bench.
Making race wheels.
Spun aluminium wheels with mild steel temporary centres for further suspension design. This allows us to get a wheel hub bolted in which will set CV shaft position. We can also move along with upright design. The final centres will be milled from 20mm thick 6061 T6 Aluminium Below are the CAD drawings for the CNC aluminium wheel centres.
