That looks great . Will transform your cornering experience.
the transition from hex to circular is a little abrupt at the points of the hex's.
Look forward to hearing your report on the handling improvement.
I wouldnt recommend milling your own shafts as they will be hardened spring steel! for milling you need to detemper and retemper once finished milling.
Actually the Peugeot bars machine very easily Graeme.
I talked the radiusing design through with the machinist, I have complete faith in his opinion. He’s been working with racing teams for decades and actually produce their own roll bars for mustangs amongst other cars, he’s 69 and still working daily.
I will have changed so much on the car by the time of testing but I’m sure it will have the desired effect!
Thats a little worrying if they are easy to machine, hardened steel is not what you want to see on your Lathe or Mill.
why do you need a chamfer on the end?
if you mean the chamfer between round and hex end, it´s required to reduce stress at this point (or, simpler, not to have stress at a "point"). You will need it for thicker hex ARBs or for round-to-hex ARBs.
