Coming from You I consider it a big compliment.
Thank You!

Safety/reliability first.

Haha Remi, if you hear complimentary from Finn you have probably done something right!

But being serious a proper rollgage is a must. Seamless tubing (FIA standard) and good MIG- or TIG welds. Professional welder too and top notch machinery. Very good and wide enough baseplates for roll gage legs. All welds with 100% cover (requires dropping roll gage thru the floor in order to weld properly top corners) Too much roll gage tubing than too little. Also complete reinforcement welds for chassis.
These are the key factors for a good and safe roll gage.

Excuses for bad picture - but You get the idea.

Out of these two + a bunch of parts - one competetive Ritmo will emerge.

An empty Ritmo shell weighs close to nothing, I will try to keep the weight down during build.

Hopefully I will be ready next summer:-)
