ive had 7 years of evo and over xmas i added up what i had spent on my x2 main cars, its disgraceful!

The evo 9



and the evo 6 sprint car



done over 40 track days at over 600bhp and 2 years of sprints, its been a hoot and had such a great time doing it and both of them well over 600bhp and both very different animals. those who i have made freinds with at track days and sprints will know that ive always had the itch to go back to rear wheel drive, well here what im up to

The Kit car

i collect this hyabusa powered tiger avon kit car in 2 weeks, its a well know sprint and hill climb car from ireland, always wanted one and looks ****in mental, obviously i will be developing things and putting my stamp on the car, its going to be a big learning curve for me again, something ive missed over the last few years





here is a video of it in action:eek: guys got some balls
and this one

there are many other videos if you look at the guys you tube profile

The RX8

for a long term project i have boght a maxda RX8, the dirt cheap as the engines are pants, got the for £180 but sold the interior and a fe other bits n bos s it stands me at £40:D

i was going to pput all of my evo engine, turbo and 4wd system in it but decided against

im currently trying to decided on which engine to put in

M5 V10
M3 e90 V8
M3 E46 straight 6

anybody help me with this?

the car now



anyway its stripped already for a cage and engine, along with a bif wide arch kit, i would like it to end up something like this







The Rx8 wil take time, at least a year

anyway, thats where im at:coolsm:

yes im looking for a suitable NA, not familar with those engines but just know that it has to be as close to 500bhp as possible, hence the v10 m5 or the e90, cost is a big factor as well and believe it or not the evo breaking will pay for both and have a decent bit left over

would be great, blody expensive though

TVR engine perhaps?

That kit car looks as mad as a box of frogs :naughty:
to expensive for me corky, best sounding engines ever though

Will you fit in that Tiger Martin ? :)

Will be fun but you will miss the torque until you get used to revving the berries off it, i drove my old boss's redtop powered caterham and was great fun and always wanted one since, but without a good place to keep it ive not scratched that itch yet.

As for the RX8 just get a LS1 v8 slung in there :D

Was just about to say an LS V8 create motor, think you can get them with the loom and ECU so just plug and play :smthumbup
Correct:smthumbup
