I see you've mentioned some nuts and spacers you've used. Does that not come with either of the kits

You get the hardware for the conversion and I'll feedback in on the extra bits i used to they are included, as for the servo shims you'll need to source these yourself if using full size servo or go for a low profile one, really just depends on what electrics you run

Yes I built this off a B6 and will update the thread with the parts I used shortly

Much appriciated. I have a couple more questions.
Whats the benefit over a standard b6/b6.1?
will work in slippery conditions bearing in mind the motor position?

I’ll let you know when I run it on Sunday!

As for the wet conditions I image due to the weight dist a b6.1/d would be better option

Car looked very good in your footage Mark. Great info and the weight surprised me, that's a decent saving and shows with how balanced it looks.

Keep up the info, I'm very tempted when this goes on general sale.

Thanks, yes it was a good first outing for the car, need to find a little more steering but we have some ideas to try (orange front spring/akerman change)

Will also go up on diff oil from 5k to 20k

It does in the description: 260GBP. There is also a page where you can pre-order and pay the entire kit price in one go.

Looks nice.

Only one simple thing I'd change thought, esp in the display pics:
those really long screws that hold the D-block on

It's a nice piece of engineering even if personally I wouldn't be willing to pay £260 over the price of any kit for an alternative chassis.

All these are manufactured to order just so you guys are aware

I'll be keeping the Preorder open until the end of this month (30th November) so please get your deposit down before the month is out should you like one!

Oh, if you want your name/nickname engraved into your chassis, there is no additional charge for this! Just place the preorder and drop a message on any of the Willspeed/T6 Racing contact links.
