Detail Chassis photos Lotus 79

Postby DiemenRacer » Mon Jul 04, 2016 4:38 pm

Back in May I was racing with the SCCA at VIR (Virginia International Raceway) in Alton Virginia. We needed a header welded and had the local on site prep shop Sasco Sports do the work. They have a lot of neat cars including Duncan Dayton's Lotus 79. I believe it is chassis 4, my photo of the chassis plate did not come out well. So here are some detailed shots I hope will assist your builds. If you have a chance you should stop by SASCO, they are a nice group of guys. They are working on James Hunt's F3 car also. I will be posting more photos shortly.

Talk about perfect timing! 8)
I've been thinking about what to do different with one of my Tamiya Lotus 79 kits and had decided to build it sans bodywork. I've got most of the parts either in hand, on the way or waiting on the Acustion springs. Many thanks.
