Is that a Sabre chassis in the last two pics?

Hows testing been going. Ive not logged on to SKCC for a while so might have missed some updates

Hahahhahaah, Sabre chassis....lol. No, this is chassis No2, I have chassis No3. The Sabre is significantly less sophisticated than the Zeus.

Sabre


To be fair that's an old pic of the Sabre chassis. The front bit now sports a bit of a cross arrangement of the tubes (gen2?)

With the greatest respect to AB, the Sabre is a sophisticated Kitcar chassis, the Zeus is a full on race car. Just have a look at the wishbones, the push rod suspension front and back, the way the front and rear ROPS hoops go all the way to the bottom of the chassis. Very different beasts.

But they do on the pics of the Sabre, or am I missing something ?

Wishbones and push rods are all subject to how much you want to spend (time and money) on the fabrication.

I think the polite way of putting it would be that the Zeus is a well developed endurance race car, where as the Sabre is in its infancy and races at club level.

It would be interesting to see Zeus vs. Sabre over the different tracks. Do you think you would be much slower in a Saber round brands?

The important bit is the you.

If you were talking about the last Arion chassis i saw I'd agree with you

Zeus has done 39 secs round Brands. I would be able to do low 40s in the right conditions. There would be a big Aero difference, tyre difference & and extra 400 odd BHP so you have to think that you'd go much faster in the Zeus.
