Purchase of Rotary Hillclimb Racing Chassis

The new chassis.

The new Project is to build a new Rotary Hillclimb Racing Car (RPV02 Van Dieman RF92).

I purchased a second hand chassis on the 9th Feb 2008 after selling the previous car (RPV01).  The photo attached is of the chassis as I placed it down in my garage / home workshop, I purchased the chassis only, with no suspension or steering it is made of chrome-molly steel and the outer body work is fiberglass.  The front arms in the photo were on loan so I could get some idea of what they looked like.
