Fisher Fury - Road or race chassis

Can anybody confirm from this picture if this is the road or race chassis.

The picture is the front suspension turret. I thought all race chassis's had 3 holes for adjustability, but this one doesn't, although I am being advised it is a race chassis. The car was raced (back in 2011).

Thanks

no that is a standard chassis. the lowered race chassis had all suspension mounts higher than the standard version.

that is a standard version and also an early version by looking at the outer joint, have a look at my photos to see the difference

Hi all

This is my car that I'm selling and this is all news to me so I'm trying to get to the bottom of it. I certainly don't want to mislead anyone.

I've been digging through all the stuff I have about the car including old ads, images and build manuals etc. It seems to match the Fury build manual(March 2004) that describes it as a 'lightweight' chassis. The car was built by Kitcar workshop in 2004/2005.

It also has full roll cage and side impact protection which I don't think was available on the road chassis whcih had a bolt on roll hoop.

So could this be a variation in spec over the years or maybe there were three chassis types available - Race, lightweight and standard road?

All the ads I have ever seen for this car describe it as 'lightweight, lowered racing chassis'. I also found this add for a different car with the same description and front rocker setup https://www.carandclassic.co.uk/car/C989173

Thanks

Chris

It's a standard chassis but as mentioned modified but not a race chassis I've seen loads of race chassis never one like this.

Looks a good car though good luck with the sale.





Thanks

If you are on Face book join 'Fury Sportscar Owners' is you are not already and ask on there. Mark Fisher often pops up so will most probably be the best bet for an answer

Although I have never raced mine when I ordered it, it was a light race chassis that I ordered iirc and the suspension is identical to yours.

I do recall there being normal and lightweight chassis and bodies available from The Kit Car Workshop

I think race lowered was another option added later...
