Trailer wall, front hub and front caliper

A picture of the trailer wall. It's a structure made from polycarbonate. Two color options available, white and transparent. Heat insulation is of same class as double glass.

We'll be using new parts for the front end.
The hub is machined by Tommis billet in Finland, and they make the front end narrower. Making a narrower hub meant that we don't have as much space for the front caliper as we did earlier, so we needed new ones.
The brake calipers are from Hispec. It took three months to deliver them, even when they promised that they would ship them in two days when I called them. Then it took a couple months to sort out why the calipers costed more than listed in their website. When we got it all sorted out, our first racing season was already over, so we had to buy other brake parts. Good looking parts, but I would probably not buy them again because of the difficulties we had.

We got the dampers of the car sold, and new ones will be according to the newer regulations.
