And here is a preliminary mockup. We'll only do a small initial batch run to start with as they'll be the most expensive upright we'll produce so if anyone is genuinely interested please get in touch with me peter@brypar.com

That's awesome! Can you put up a side-by-side with the factory upright? If you can post the measurements as well that would be awesome!

I dunno about other folks applications, but I really am trying to get 19x12.5-13s under all 4 corners so I can run the ACR rear tyre all round http://www.tirerack....20ACR&tab=Specs

Steam roller GT-R.

Hi guys, wont be on here all the time so please contact me directly. Will have more details in a few weeks. We're still just at a conceptual stage. The plan is to have all factory parts bolt-up other than the factory spring/damper assembly. This is the area of most concern to us as the biggest complaint we've heard has been around tyre clearance around the upright. Again please email me directly if you have any further questions as I wont be on here very often to answer anything posted.

Maybe I missed it... Are there provisions for brake cooling from the center of the rotor as previously inquired? I don't see it on your render.

Holes at the top and bottom will allow for cooling. Lower hole might accommodate a duct.

The next stage is analysis and it we can incorporate some cooling through the centre we will. At this stage the tyre clearance is the number 1 priority. Once we have that we'll be looking at the strength and where we can lose material (which we'll use for cooling).

Nice. Thanks for the explanation. Any examples or pics that you've done in the past to accommodate brake cooling? Looking forward to your final design.

I am so fucking excited about this mod! I've got a couple of friends with Ariel Atoms, gotta catch up!

Here's a quick overlay so you can see where we're getting the extra wheel clearance. We will be raising the bearing height in the next iteration, but just need to know a few more overall tyre diameters before we commit. Our next iteration should also include some brake cooling mounting points and possibly some other areas.

Hi guys, sorry about the slow rate of updates. Unfortunately paying projects take priority over the development ones (where else do we get the $ to do the development!). These will take some time but we're hoping to have something ready to turn into a printed plastic prototype in a few weeks. If anyone wants development fast tracked get in touch. These are probably our most expensive OEM-style bolt-on replacement uprights we've designed to date, purely because of the huge amount of machine work.

Totally makes sense Peter. Can't wait to see the prototypes.

Thanks,
