I'm starting to work on the chassis for my swap project. I initially thought I was going to use the entire Model 3 rear subframe, but I didn't end up going that route for various reasons.
In the hot rod world, there are a few manufacturers that build chassis using some Corvette suspension geometry, so I decided to attempt the same.
I managed to get access to a C7 Z06 corvette on a lift, so I 3D scanned the whole suspension setup, front and back (pictured rear).
My goals here would be to use the spindle, upper and lower control arms and toe adjustment link from the Corvette in a package that mounts the Tesla Model 3 Rear Drive Unit. I'm also hoping to make the drive unit removable from the bottom somehow.
I might use a different brake setup, but there are lots of options for Corvettes.
I'm just starting on this, so I am very much open to ideas and critique. I'll post some progress when I make any.
