    Sorry for the late replys, but im out at work at the moment, adn its not so easy to just jump on the internet all the time

    this is where we are at:

    I have called the machinist, one prototype has been machined. I have sent a new set of bearings to the shop to be test fitted, and they were not happy with how the bearing shell was in the hub, so they have made some adjustments to the CAD drawing and are going to make another hub to ensure the bearings sit properly.

    Its important to get this right, if the bearings are crushed or 'egg shaped' in the hub it will not allow correct operation.

    You have to remember that these are being made from a 25 year old hub.....some of the clearances will have changed in that original hub they took teh specs from.

    I still have everyone's money in a new seperate account, if anyone wishes for a refund i will transfer. The hubs are still going ahead and will still be produced as stated.......these things take time.

    Is it possible to press some studs into the first prototype and test fit a wheel? I'm wondering why the measurement on the drawing for the PCD circle is R57 and not R57.15. Your tapered seat wheel nuts should mate perfectly and not pull outwards on the wheel studs if that makes sense.

    the update is im pretty much considering refunding all deposits and shutting this down.

    my job is just too demanding at the moment, im far to regional.......most times with no phone, internet and using generators for 240v. I have no way of keeping in contact with people and getting things organised.

    ill be paying for the time on the prototype and drawings out of my own pocket.

    i have so much on my plate that i cant even get to the shop to inspect or discuss this. my job has just escalated so much since this project started.

    i apologize to all concerned, as i have stated, a full refund of your deposit is available. i will PM all people individually to obtain bank details

    sometimes life just gets in the way and you have to know when to call it what it is.

    So after i went away into the outback for work for 6 weeks (no internet, no mobile phone), i get home to an email invoice to say these have been made



    So now i have these in my possession. I have paid the full out lay myself........a fair bit of coin. Lucky my salary allows for that now

    what a fucked up situation.

    so i am going to fit one up to my car and if all goes well they will be on sale again

    pics of fitment in the next few days
