Hey check out the cool little work bay specially for fabbing up these wishbones.  Cant wait to get them on the car!

The wishbone fabrication process has begun!

Hey there racefans!

A quick sneek peek at the bespoke Nitron Motorsport GT3 wishbones!
These babies are made entirely from T45 steel tubing, CNC inner and outer busings and high strength high precision Aurora Bearing ‘RAM-8T’ rose joints. Nothing but the best on this one guys and gals!

These babies are going to be sweet!
Stay tuned for more pics; Ill keep you posted live on this one! It really is a cool process!

That’s one sexy carbon dash…

Good things come to those who wait… It was back in May when we sent out our dash model to be moulded, and last night; it walked in the door! With a little bit of drilling and finishing, it fits like a glove!

Naturally I had to start fitting it yesterday late into the night, we needed to see what it was going to look like!
Finishing touches today and she’s all fixed in place! Big thanks to my little brother ‘Canadian work experience apprentice Sebastian Britnell’ for coming over during his ‘march break’ from college. All of his hard work spent cutting and sanding and moulding has finally paid off!

Enjoy the pictures, and stay tuned for more updates… A beauty custom wiring loom is soon to come!

Front diffuser

Well we’re back on the Project N2 build, finally with a goal not to stop until she’s finished! Sorry to our followers, but its been a busy summer and we haven’t had much time to make progress on the build.

As an opener to the new ‘build season’, what better than to show the most recent progress made on the front of the car!

The design of the mounting points of the front diffuser has been re-visited and re-designed. Instead of bolting straight through the diffuser, we opted to bond on some aluminum panels in an effort to distribute the load of the support straps over a wider surface area. It also allows for a larger mounting surface for other future accessories, and a more sturdy surface for the thread rivets to bite into.
The straps have been custom made to be adjustable in an effort to enable us to trim the splitter for the best possible aerodynamic ground effect.

We hope you enjoy the pictures, and stay tuned… MORE TO FOLLOW!

Front caliper mounts

So our caliper mounts have returned from Jamestan engineering. Beautiful CNC work! These babies should take all the load our brakes are going to throw at them… Especially with the titanium shear pins being used!!

I must say… Clearance is tight but existent. But lets face it… How sweet is a 330mm disc and some AP 6 pot calipers under a 16″ RIM!!!???

Wishbones

Well, more wishbone fun. We’re using an assortment of wishbones that we have around the shop to get the geometry of the suspension right where we want it. Spacing and shimming and spacing and shimming…

Once the static geometry is at its ideal position, and the travel of the wheels under bump and rebound makes a sexy motion; we can finalise the drawings for our wishbones and fab them up!

I can’t wait…

SLAMMED!

Mocking up 330mm front disc brakes

Well, since its time to get going on the wishbone design; we need to determine the clearances around the uprights and brake components.
So before we order a 330mm disc, I’m cutting out a mock disc to check for clearance.

Can’t beat Makita!! Trusted build tools for project N2!!

Brakes!

Check these babies out! Brand spanking new Progressive AP 6-pot calipers for the fronts and progressive 4-pot calipers for the rears.

These should stop the car nicely!

Stay tuned for the custom floating discs and bells!
