The TSC GT40 is based on a strong, light, fully triangulated spaceframe chassis.

Every chassis frame is supplied complete with all brackets and mountings welded in the correct position to ease assembly. No welding is required by the builder.

Chassis frames are available in both right and left hand drive versions.

Due to the unique design of the chassis frame the engine is mounted as low as possible to acheive a low centre of gravity for improved handling and cornering.

 

 

To ensure accuracy every chassis frame along with all wishbone and suspension links are MIG welded in precision made jigs and fixtures.

For taller drivers a lowered seat option can be incorporated into the chassis frame.

 

 

The front and rear suspension systems are as per original GT40 and feature double wishbones at the front with lower reversed ' A ' frames, single top links and double radius arms at the rear.

 

 

The standard suspension is rubber bushed and fully rose jointed suspension is available as an option. It is important to note that due to an increased wear rate and the transmission of vibration, rose joints should only be used for race applications.

Front and rear springing is provided by coil over adjustable shock absorber units which are custom built for the application.

Braking is provided by discs front and rear with 2, 4 or 6 pot alloy calipers

All chassis and suspension components are supplied in a bare metal state as standard with a powder coated option available in a wide chioce of colours.

 

 

The chassis is also available with an intergrated roll cage as an optional extra. The cage is manufactured in a choice of either 1 1/2" or 1 3/4" dia. 12 gauge CDS2 tube. The cage consists of a front hoop, rear hoop, roof section cross bar and rear diagonal braces.

 

 

All wishbone and suspension links are also available in a high quality chrome plated finish.

Standard engine options are Ford small block 289/302/351 or Rover V8 with alternatives available to special order.

The Gearbox is either 5 or 6 speed.

All mechanical components required to turn a basic chassis suspension package into a driveable unit are available direct from Tornado Sports Cars ensuring complete compatability of all parts and ease of assembly.

 

 

The TORNADO TSC GT40 chassis has been purpose designed for everyday road car use and is capable of true supercar performance.
