you'll need a 'Quaife reversing box' ! http://www.quaife.co...e-reversing-box - thats the link for the website - im not the authority on these by any means but a friend of mine put one in a motorbike engined kit car an it worked for him!
good luck

is that the box that just reverses everything ?

so you get 5 (or what ever a bike has) reverse gears, meaning you can go backwards as fast as you can forwards

Was that really wise? Sounds to me like he's trying to make himself a front engined RWD mini? Nothing like a Z-car really >_<

Would it be possible to fit the Quaife box to the new FWD R1 kits available?
