Ordered the nosecone and brake rotors so that front suspension design can progress. The nosecone is for determining where the inboard front suspension pivots go. The brake discs are for measuring the thickness at the mounting face, as it shifts the wheel center outward. I feel better measuring them – and every other component – myself. The seats will probably be next.

I got a great deal on a Tilton hanging pedal set, but after seeing how compact, low, and light my brother’s floor-mount pedals are, I wonder if I should go that way. Than again, when I tried them I experienced what other people have said about floor-mounted pedals. The arc of the pedal and foot don’t match, lifting my foot off the floor. Not terrible, but something that would take some getting used to. I have to think about it.
