Only problem is most of the good parts aren't eligible for most racing here in Australia as they are VO or ES.

But yes, there are some cool bits in it. Have know about it for a few months and studied it closely.

Some of the stuff could be replicated, but not sure if it would be worth doing.

Yes, I guess group A homologation doesn't count for much these days.

It's interesting looking at the additional items homologated and mostly it's solving the same problems as today but in the day everything was pretty much custom rather than borrowed from something else. Reinforced drive shafts, control arms, uprights etc. Something like 6 different tubular front control arms, you wonder whether they were all aimed at something different or whether it was a case of "that didn't work, let's try again". Interesting to see the custom rear uprights and struts, no clamp in sight. Would have been good to see the car Monster was running to see how much of this stuff was actually used.

Certainly some interesting parts contained. Thanks for posting its a better pdf of the one I've seen before.
Unfortunately most of it is aimed at tree dodging. Thus overkill for most circuit cars.
