I'm planning a Dio Tipo using an Alfa engine and trans.
I would LIKE to use as much of the Alfa suspension as possible.
The builder of your car did not post a detailed build log.
Any chance you can post or PM some suspension pics when it's convenient?
You also have a PM.

Thanks for the pics, they will be helpful.
Surprised at the lower arm.
Not sexy but should work fine.
Do you know the track width and what the R&P is from?

From what I have read on this forum the car works very well.

I know, I've perused what he posted but it seems he never put up a detailed build log.
What cams in the engine, A arms lengths and mounting points (width and height), what R&P, etc.
