If your going for pure weight advantage, specialised engineering do a lighter set for the same money.

Great news, looking awesome, look forward to more pics of it done.  http://www.classiclineinsurance.co.uk/ gave me a pretty good quote, have insured quite a few of the Pro-Motive options I think.

Do you have any picks of the finished build. It was looking good when it came out of paint.

Hi, Riot.  Great build and I'm even more excited for you being a fellow R1 mini owner.  I've been off the forum for a fair while whilst building mine and am almost there now.  I have one of the first Promo kits and also want to turbo the R1.  According to the Promo website it isn't possible to turbo the engine on their kit but I don't believe anything is impossible apart from eating your own head and so am going to consider carrying out this mod next year.  Please could you tell me exactly what brand/spec components you have as it would really help me get this show on the road.  The turbo type and spec would be a great start.  PM me if you prefer.

 

Thanks heaps, bud.

 

Dan
