It is also a shorter wheelbase and wider track.
Can you explain how & why this would be done?
Curious as to the mechanical changes & what the benefits would be
Because the Rotary engine sits higher in the engine bay than the original Holden V8, they needed to use a two piece tail shaft (Holden originally was a single piece) to meet the correct angle, but that required the rear axle to be moved back slightly to make it all work. I originally thought forwards but have checked the specs online and the Roadpacer is longer not shorter. Holden is 2819mm wheelbase and the Roadpacer 2830mm.
The specs online do not appear as accurate as I remember as they state the same track for both at 1530mm. I have a brochure at home that I will check the track variation with but maybe I am wrong on the track? I will check and confirm.
