Hi Steve N....

Try Siltech, they will make you up a set of upper and lower wishbone arms to your spec for around the price indicated in the web link to their site below. 

http://www.siltechracing.com/#!products-and-prices/productsstackergallery4g1=0

They can also supply light weight billet ali uprights and hubs if you want to make the car really special and are currently working with Tiger Racing on a number of upgrades for the Avon and R6 / R10.

Hi again Steve,

Mac had been making the wide track wish bones for the Avon but needed a certain amount of confirmed orders for the material he ordered / used and I dont think it was happening as people were only coming forward 1 or 2 at a time.

As Ed pointed out there was talk about him selling the jigs he had made, I dont know if this happened or who he sold them too.

Like I said have a look at the Siltech Racing website as they are currently doing development work with Tiger Racing at this time.

It might be a case of having to take your car over to them at Shipdham in Norfolk for them to measure and confirm what you need.

My car is over there at the moment for them to look at reducing the weight of the front hub assembly.

Ah "Oultane" Park spellerinitisism must be countagearse.

I have never had a cheap weekend at Oulton.
1st attempt, fried battery, very expensive replacement from the Oulton shop
2nd attempt, Fireblade gearbox selector fork bent selecting random gears mid race.  Very exciting......and expensive.

As Oulton is nearly in Scotland it could well be snowing 2nd of April

Hi Jack,

Work is in progress on the Snetterton special wish bones and on the look out for somewhere to fit the studs onto tyres just like they use in ice racing.

That should give me some form of traction in the snow [smile]

Hi,

Mac is having some difficulty in producing the wishbones now.  There are a few of us that have been waiting over a year.  So, I would suggest you look at alternative fabricators.
