    Hi Horsefly, You are correct. The Norwood chassis has evolved significantly over the years. Their have in-fact been well over 100 engineered design improvements incorporated into the latest iteration of the chassis. The latest version is a completely TIG welded 4130 Chromoly work of art that retains many original design elements including coolant running through stainless steel chassis tubes. Numerous suspension geometry changes for handling & drivability have been incorporated along with changes to integrate pedal hangers and mounts for all brake and clutch cylinders, more consistent with the original P cars. I suspect that critics of the Norwood P4 have never actually seen one in person. I have learned from David Piper that many parts from the original P Cars were pulled off the Scuderia parts shelf. I'll ask him about the steering rack. Mine incorporates a later model Ferrari Rack that bolts directly into the Norwood Chassis. Every time I share how I've incorporated a later model Ferrari component on my car, DP comments "I wish I'd had that part back in the day".... Some of the best conversations we've had have been about using the F133 550 V12 engine in my car. Cheers. Nino

    My Car has an Ferrari F133 550 V12 and a specially modified Porsche G50 Gearbox that shifts mechanically from the side. Nino
