Default English Trials Cars

Just been looking at your Club's website including the close ups of trials cars. It occurred to me that you might like to see the latest, and most expensive, design here. The most advanced feature is that the engined, gearbox and rear axle are located as one unit. Can't remember what engine, but the trend for sometime here is to mount a transverse engine lengthways, lock the diff, which then becomes a reduction gear to the rear, in this case, a Hewland diff/gearbox. Independent rear like your's. But one big difference with this one is that all other components are then attached to the one central unit, even the cockpit. There is no chassis. It has push rod front suspension located above the engine. Inboard rear discs. Left pedals operates both the clutch and from disc brakes. Normal here for the compulsory spare wheel to functions as roll bar.

All the best to all.
