ok but the chassis has quite astonishing similarities so I wonder if ultima has supplied the chassis at the time ?

the prosport is much more race orientated - the chassis was later developed into the stealth B6.

ok noticed that the back is quite different and is using pushrod and part of the suspension is attached to the gear box.

Scuffers - a PHer on here - used to race them, until his team got banned for being too fast http://www.pistonheads.com/GASSING/topic.asp?p=4&a...

I nearly bought this instead of an Ultima, but the panels didn't really fit properly, not sure about sva and it would not be worth more than £25k secondhand. According to scuffers, with some modification, it's a better design than the Ultima. Scuffers did lots of mods on my previous race car through Maidstone sport cars, which is why I gave it lots of consideration ... But IMHO the Ultima is a better all round prospect thumbup
