    Reminds me of a cradle I saw at formula one in talent oregon, the parent of held. It may have evolved with the times or there may be no connection whatsoever. That was a long time ago.

    That's Dave Held's stuff. He's still doing it after selling off the rest of the Fiero suspension business.

    I think it was 2K+, but don't quote me on that. Send Dave an email.

    Pantantor I live about 10 minutes from his address. I think I am going to take a look at what he has. I never knew about Dave.

    Just noticed that the thread title says transverse. It is a longitudinal engine frame.

    looks like I found ari's page or kitcentral... not sure which one - but my login / password still works!

    anyway, I'm dave held - formerly Held Motorsports. Randy called recently to tell me about this site.

    I still make the engine cradles for longitudinal V8 / transaxles as well as other things. Not sure of the vendor restrictions here, so let me know if you want to hear about the other items. I am awaiting final payment to ship one this week.

    I'm currently working at Kennedy Space Center full time and running the biz when I can... and still enjoying it.
    I hope to meet Randy this weekend and go from there.
