I don't have one.

Are you wanting one to fit an existing chassis?

Not sure if there's anyone that stocks them "on the shelf", but still commonly used in some racing cars/series.

I'd suspect getting hold of a pre-made one will require a real stroke of luck now that GTS Tuning is no more, and DTR Cars (who took it over) have done the same.

I'd look up the McSorely build plans (GTS W7DE uses the +442 version), as I think they had the details on them for the manufacture of the DeDion setup - and have a chat with your local friendly fabricator!

Dion rear axle source

Alfa romeos had them in the gtv6 and alfetta.

Hope that helps.

If that's the case will you not need it to have specific dimensions for track, mounting points etc?

I plan to fabricate all the mounts etc myself so anything the correct width should be possible.
I have been looking at the option of caterham parts too
