Our brake setup will look like this on the front. Race rules require a stop distance of less than 40ft @ 25mph. I had to machine a shaft collar to mount the bracket that can slide on a set screw groove machined in the spindle.
Rear wheel is mounted in a CB360 swing arm. Took a couple of spacers and collars to get the dimensions right, but a fair setup.
The swing arm is mounted with two linkages that allow us to raise and lower the rear end. Race rules require the vehicle to be 1.5in off the ground to prevent a slide in the event of a flat tire.
We tested our ride height. The front axle is mounted on a pad which will let us shim for ride height and castor adjust.
We’re now at a point where I need to convince the team that we should compete with one driver and build the rest of the car around her. At opposite ends of the spectrum, we have a female who’s 5’4” and 130lbs. She’s a champion mountain biker who isn’t unfamiliar with competing. On the other end, we have a legit D1 prospect football player who’s 6’4” 210lbs and has shoulders that don’t fit in the frame of the car as it is. He’s our best skill driver. I’m going to do my best to get this team onboard with our female driver during competition.
