got as far as building the front end, but am now thinking that there are further wheelbase adjustments ?
Looks like it may be adjustable from 225mm through to 260mm using the 3 main chassis lengths and then the swing arm spacers.

I am getting my citrix combo today and lets see how it goes.
Confirmed!!! The 17.5T sheet metal can of the Citrix stock spec combo fits perfectly.

It appears to be the gearbox from the new TRF201, although I don't yet have mine to compare.

It is the same gear set, but the housing is not the same, nor is the upper lay shaft.

Will a Peugeot 306 maxi fit if you cut/remove the front bumper?

Not yet finished build but do have both the 306 and 406 shells unpainted.
Had a quick measure up with the Vectra, and it looks to fit if you trim the bumper.

My LHS up here sold out the day he got them in as well. Where are they all going? I'm sure Jeff is shipping tons of them all over. Hopefully enough stay here in SoCal for us to get some good fields together.

If all goes well, I'll debut mine this Sunday at Camarillo.

Silver can.

Default Porsche body fitment

When I use the Porsche body the rear wheelwell does not line up properly in the long setup- body seems short. If I switch to medium wheelbase setup the body seems too long and the wheelwell does not line up also. Anyone else have this issue?

Why would you want to use a Porsche shell?
and if you must, then try using different spacers on the suspension shaft pins.
My working out shows that you can have any wheelbase size between 225mm and 260mm by using the 3 main chassis lengths and the suspension pin spacers and the rear hub spacers.

I use the Porsche body because that is what the TCS rules call for and I am getting it set up for that exhibition class.
