 The FLT chassis now features a custom designed multi-link steering system that allows the builder to use a wide range of rack and pinion mechanisms that don't necessarily have to follow a fixed width between the tie rod ball joints. The biggest advantage of this multi-link system is the ability to alter the bump steer and Ackermann angle  (both contribute to the desired amount of oversteer or understeer) by simply replacing the custom made linkage members with new ones, thus keeping the A-arms, uprights and rack and pinion intact. So far, we have achieved a maximum bump steer of the front wheels of 0,26 degrees, which only happens if both front coil-overs are fully extended. In normal driving conditions, at about 50% coil-over compression/extension, the bump steer will be approximately from 0 to 0,14 degrees.

 The front and rear uprights were slightly redesigned and now feature 1-degree wheel inclination in neutral position by default. The upper wall of the tyres remain in same width as before, but after the inclination the lower wall is shifted by 8 mm outwards, resulting in a widened front and rear track by 16 mm each. The simulated suspension geometry from the attached images uses 0-degree wheel inclination by purpose, because that helps to better understand where changes are required to improve the overall performance.

 The chassis of Finnluxury Tritium, known as FLT chassis, is finalized and consists the following sections:

Section A (floor): 59 tubes, 32 tube types;
Section B (front bumper): 32 tubes, 18 tube types;
Section C (engine cradle): 31 tubes, 20 tube types;
Section D (rear bumper): 33 tubes, 18 tube types;
Section E (engine bay): 46 tubes, 24 tube types;
Section F (front end): 80 tubes, 42 tube types;
Section R (roof roll-cage): 10 tubes, 6 tube types;
Section S (sides): 30 tubes, 15 tube types;
Section T (central tunnel): 36 tubes, 19 tube types;
Section W (firewall): 18 tubes, 9 tube types.

Total number of tubes: 375
Total tube weight (without metal sheets and plates): 271,52 kg
CNC-laser cut tubes: 370
CNC-bent round tubes: 5
CNC-laser cut metal plates: over 560* (+ 47 kg)
CNC-laser cut metal sheets: over 50*
CNC-turned parts: over 40*
Machined parts: 4
Rivnut mounting points: over 100*
*Current WIP approximate numbers, the exact count will be available later.
 
 Not mentioned in the list above - due to being individual pieces that are eventually bolted to the chassis - are a number of additional laser-cut brackets, door hinges and 3d printed mounting points required for installation of certain body panels and interior panels of the FLT kit.

 Statistics for the suspension to be announced in a future update. Exactly the same suspension is used in my Govedo chassis, too.

 Recent upgrades of the FLT chassis include the following changes:
- Reinforced feet area for even better rigidity in the case of a small overlap frontal crash;
- Reinforced base for the A1 and A2 roof pillars, which strengthens the windshield frame in case of a roll-over;
- Gazillion new metal plates with installed rivnuts provide convenient bolt-on mounting points for the main body panels, interior panels, lights etc;
- Revised floor design now accepts seats with wider seat-rail mount.

 The FLT chassis, which is an integral part of the "FLT kit, Stage 1", now features bolt-on removable front bumper frame that makes it possible to easily replace or fix a damaged unit, as well as giving a convenient access to the mechanical components in the front end if needed. Thanks to this newly added feature, the FLT chassis now consists 4 separate frames and fully utilizes the original concept for the chassis whose purpose was to make a structure that's user-friendly and versatile yet robust and safe. The following list describes the individual frames that combine together to form the FLT chassis:
 1. Main frame consisting the cockpit and partial front end and rear end;
 2. Bolt-on removable engine cradle complete with the rear suspension (useful for a quick swap of alternative drivetrains and servicing);
 3. Bolt-on removable front bumper frame;
 4. Bolt-on removable rear bumper frame.

 ::thumbup Thanks!

 After recent improvements the chassis can be manufactured in basically the exact same copies to ensure proper installation of the body panels for every kit. The assembly of all the CNC-laser cut chassis tubes is 99,9% accurate to the 3d CAD model thanks to using a variety of dedicated slots and pins that match together and will not allow any unwanted loose movement.
 I uploaded a few videos on YouTube showing the way those pins and slots are getting designed:

After the design improvements in recent months, including 25 mm wider side skirts, 12 mm longer front bumper and 9 mm longer rear diffuser, Finnluxury Tritium now has the following final dimensions:
 Length = 4776 mm / 188 in
 Width = 2035 mm / 80,1 in
 Width incl. mirrors = 2272 mm / 89,5 in
 Height = 1148 mm / 45,2 in
 Wheelbase = 2700 mm / 106,3 in
 Ground clearance = 104 mm / 4,1 in
