Tony Thompson Frames Buyer Beware

PostPost by: elancoupe » Fri Apr 14, 2006 10:50 am

I have used a TTR frame for 11 years now---no complaints.

Yes, I use adjustable suspension, and I would imagine that those
wanting to put a racing frame in an Elan would do so in most cases.

While it is disappointing to see a TTR chassis off spec, in fairness,
I have seen a few unbent factory chassis with significant rear toe

When choosing my replacement chassis, adjustable arms were a given for
me in either case given my experiences.

Perhaps Spyder has no such concerns?

A little off track but what are the differences between Kelveldon and TT adjustable a arms?
The Kelveldon ones I have seen have an adjusting bolt welded into the rear leg, which when adjusted lengthens or shortens the arms to correct toe What are TT's like? And which would you consider superior.?
