Hi guys, just picked up a unfinished project :nuke: Its a fibreglass shell minus with a r1 in the front, prop driven with a e46 diff at the rear, uprated hubs all round roll caged with gaz shocks. I've just acquired carbon miglia arches, carbon boot lid and carbon bonnet........ next thing is fibre glass dash, flatshifter gear system and trying to figure out how to convert the clutch to hydraulic.

will be uploading pics soon :proud:

thanks nick

Not ATM, been sourcing parts mainly. pick the keys up for the new unit so will be posting a thread soon. just ordered a garrett turbo so looks like we're hoping to drag around 400-450bhp in the long term(when I can afford the internals for the engine) going to be running 250bhp on first test drive. Still more parts to source lol

Not on there yet, but will have a look :proud: hoping that if I can get the set up right should be the fastest mini around. Being prop driven mean the weak link in most r1 mini's is removed (the chain) making it more reliable. ;D
