Duds yeah its standard apart from the custom exhaust/manifold and pipercross filter. My 116mph terminal was in 6th and it runs mid 12's. Would pull more but being a hillclimb special its pointless.
I usually run a 14-50 when hillclimbing, change the front spricket just to play on the 1/4mile haha

My race r1 mini at 500kg with me in it can pull 116mph no problem at the limiter over the 1/4mile.
Mines isnt a promotive kit. I run a 15t - 50t setup on 13 wheels.

Be interesting to hear how you get on with some taller gearing. There are some good free GPS apps you can download to verify speed. I bought a speedo healer and then calibrated my R1 clocks so now they read GPS speed :-)

 

 

Yeah I have a speedo healer gps speedo app  need to have a play about with things although the weather is getting worse and I think I will be parking it up for the winter soon.

Im bussy with my wiringloom of my pro motive kit, do you know where you did put your reverse switch? (backup light)

Did you put a cable switch?

 

i can't figure it out :whistling:

I have actually fitted a 12v linear actuator which works from a switch on the centre console.

 

I suppose you could mount a micro switch which would be activated by the lever coming out of the reverse box???

Can you make a picture of your lineair actiator?
And what type it its? So i can order one. And what stroke you got.
I like your idea

so today i decided to do a bit of bracketeering and to fit a high level brake light.

 

take one van step tread that was laying around the garage and bend it and attach the little bracket things that come with the cheap ebay rope light.

paint it with a wee bit of vw black magic

fit the cheapo rope light and screw bracket to roof.

happy days, total cost £6.50  :proud:

I am still trying to get a reliable system together as things seem to break and bend when the internal gears in the box don't mesh (this is a regular occurrence)

 

I used a GLA200 actuator from Gimson Robotics, this moves quicker than the standard type, I went for 50mm stroke but I had to dismantle it and move the internal limit switches to stop it over travelling (although it still does a bit).  I had real trouble connecting the actuator to the lever, tried bolt and clevis fork but it kept snapping bolts when gears didn't mesh. I then tried a spring but that ended up bending when gears didn't mesh, so now I am trying a rubber mount and will see how long that lasts.

 

Good luck, if you can get a more reliable system please let me know.
