Could be joining the turbo hayabusa brigade
Posted 25 November 2004 - 03:51 AM
I am think of something along the lines of
. Mainly for road use (I have a shifter kart and BMW M3 race car for the track)
. Mid engined
. Turbo hayabsa with low boost giving around 250 to 280hp
. Custom independent rear end
. Coilover front suspension
. Disks all around
. Zeemax bodykit
. Carbon bonnet and boot lid
. Custom interior with some sound proofing
. Weight under 600 kgs
I already have a lot of the parts needed including a modied hayabusa and Velocity racing turbo kit.

As you have seen there are a couple of guys building bike engined minis on this forum, Im sure they will give you loads of help.
Have you got the mini yet?

F1 Mini: Are you doing the chassis yourself ?
I am custom building the chassis myself. I will be taking a lot of the lessons I learned from the sports racer project. I am going with an independent rear end as I have the most experience with this setup.
F1 Mini: is there any kits in Canada ?
Not that I am aware of.
tom: Have you thought about using a fibreglass shell?
I looked at that option but I am not very keen on standard fibreglass for stressed structures. I can see you having problems with fatique cracking and delaminating over time. I also bet it isn't much lighter than steel. There is also the question of how to mount the rear suspension/rollcage securely.
I have a couple of questions if anyone could help:
1) What is the front rollcentre height on a standard mini?
2) Does anyone know the distance from the center of the rear wheel to just behind the front seat at its most rearward position?
