Have seen alot people opting for the Pro motive kit with great success,
so have decide to get one for my Hillclimb car. Only thing is that i don't need some of
the parts that come with the kit because of the different lay out of my car. So is it possible to
leave these parts out of the kit and get priced accordingly
or do Pro motive only sell the kit as is?

For example.

I don't need the exhaust as i am not connecting to a mini exhaust.

I don't need the radiator and fan setup as have this in car already.

I also don't need the gear shifter as i have a different setup with it being rear engined.

Hmmm very interesting! to be honest i don't no just ring phill & he Will say yes or no! but he is very accommodating!

I also think you might have clearance issues depending on ur front end and ride height etc!

any more pictures of the beast? what is it by the way?

whatever you dont need you wont be charged for - Phil and darren are exremely accomodating, and will work with you to help achieve what you want.
and to be honest I'm pretty sure they would love to see a kit installed into this kind of application.

just my opinion - waits to be corrected - but I'm positive you'll find you get the package you want.

keep us posted - looks like a great idea.

Thats what i was hoping to hear. You obviously found them easy to work with through your project.
I've been following your project and it looks spot on. :mrcool:

many will testify - once you buy into the pro-motive thang - support, advice and a mutual keen interst is always there - youre dealing with techinal genius / enthusiasts - not profit eager business guys.
even a year in, nothing seems too much trouble, and calls however bizarre are answered. I cant promise this for everyone, but phil even came out to me roadside once to help with a problem that wasnt even kit related.
There are niggles, and there are problems - but nothing has become a major upset yet - my issues have been pretty much down to my lack of understanding and technical prowess - with your kind of understanding you will go very far indeed and make us all look very amateurish.

I'd love to see this come together :cry:
