New hubs

Update by Tim Suddard to the Triumph Spitfire (Ro-Spit) project car
Aug 9, 2001

Steve Eckerich is busy working on a a new rear hub design. The GT-6 hub and axle assembly was marginal when we were using 7” wide wheels, 10”s might be too much. Steve is looking at 4-lug RX-7 or Miata-type hubs for the conversion. He has also re-worked the upper control arms to lower the roll-center.

Here are some shots of our new 3-piece Panasport wheels. 10” of rim width should help harness the rotary’s power.
