These are made from 7475 aluminum. Stronger than mild steel and guaranteed notch resistant from manufacturer for aircraft work. Other aluminum alloys are NOT.
There is no rubber left in the suspension. It is all spherical bearing.
Brakes are standard Brembo (NASCAR) mount, so any number of calipers will bolt-on.
Rotor hats are made from 7050. I would not use anything other than a 7xxx series aluminum alloy for hats, all the others get too soft with heat. I had one mode from 6xxx come apart on me before.
A stock Corvette 17x8.5 wheel fits perfectly in the front, but does not clear the caliper (it would not on a Corvette, either).
We made a racing 3-pass radiator that fits stock mounts. You can see the shroud is trimmed, but that is because it is an S1 front clip on S2 chassis and rad shroud.
