Rough Machining the Front Wheel

Just roughing out where I cut the hub and the bearing carriers out. I have to find a lathe big enough to spin this wheel so that I can get the bore absolutely true. or at least better than circular interpolation on a VMC. At ludicrous speed these thing really matter.

Yes, It's held down to a piece of MDF (my favorite man made substance) by 3" long sheetroc screws. How else would you do precision work like this?
