the roof is from wayne, but he didnt make it. ive looked all over for a roof and i think the best ones are made by carbon weevel but their nearly £1200 quid. the roof was only placed on today to see how it looks , the tin roof has not been removed as yet,, but the car it taking shape waynes busy at mo so not gettin it done as fast as i wood like , but i must say hes work is second to none !

Good stuff, yep saw that it was just laid over the top at the mo, do you know where he got it, will it show the weave on the inside - if you could ask him would be much appreciated.

Carbon Weezel roof looks like the best you're right, a lot of money, Ben quoted me less than 1200 for one though?

So, what's next, have you sorted the engine, what type of turbo does it need?

Cheers,

Al

yes i do no were he got it from , but its nearly as much as a carbon weezel one, so i wood get theirs. yes it does show the weave on the inside, i spoke to ben also and he told me 990 plus vat that was only two weeks ago , tdk roofs are only 250 but the have a black line across them were they join the carbon, yes ive got a r1 engine, brand new turbo, intercooler, rear beem, bride seats, fiberglass front end, curly doors, wheels so got most the expensive stuff. i need turbo pistons for it , cant decide on a colour as yet !

That mini is off the scale,
by far the nicest track car ive ever seen, must be an animal!
looks so light and rigid and the power

quick question why not do the hayabusa turbo? very expensive but the power gains are ridiculous
500+ easy but imagine the torque steer haha
hows the r1 turbo for that?

busa engine is a little larger, so we went for the r1 with a turbo fitted it shud be 250-275 ish which i think is plenty, the main problem with any more power , is of course getting the power down, ive driven waynes car and its got a trick diff in it it drives really well, but my car is going to be fitted with a front antiroll bar , the car will be road leagl !
