Woke up this morning, decided to take the 3 hour trip from birmingham up to chris's garage with the misses just to see what im in for and to clear up a few things

for starters the workshop is unreal with some emence cars in there. Gotta say Chris is a nice bloke willing to help as were the lads there.

Chris took me for a quick spin in the demo car and.............................................................................
................................................................................
................................................................................
.......................... oh my freaking god!!!!!!!! if you are undecided weather to flash your cash, get in the car and go for a quick blast!
Although it was wet chris didnt hold back, i can honestly say ive never poo myself so much in a car. CANT WAIT TO BUILD MINE!

Had a good look at the front end that chris has built looks trick and he says it will sort out the front end so it can be altered much more. loooks mint too.

had a quick look at the rear engine honda mini too, pics were being taken whilst i was there, should be on the website soon

Had the same affect on me. Only went to keep Ade company but after a test drive I got my cheque book out and bought a kit.

im not sure when they are gonna post it on the website but it looks really tidy,

why do people go down the car engine route when the bike engine is clearly faster?

That RWD Honda mini was scrutinised by some other the members over at 16V mini club when it appeared at some show a few months back, needless to say they weren't too complimentary about certain aspects of the design.
