    Rolleyes Rollover Spit

    I am trying to build my own spit to put my escort Mk2 on for restoration. Can someone please tell me what height the pivot point should be for the spit to ratate 360 degrees. Thanks

    If you make sure that your pivot point is in the center of you car, then if you Measure the width of you car, divide this by 2 and then add, say, 300mm to give a good ground clearance you should be ok
