From the last race of the season:

Have you any idea why it did a bigend ?
They near never fail on bikes (even when raced) but I have seen a lot of engine failures this year with turbos so beware.

The std Hayabusa engine has been really reliable but we think the engine got some debris inside which blocked the oil pump briefly last year after the big accident. Whilst oil pressure was OK afterwards when really hot it wasn't great so the low pressure and scored bearing eventually gave up.

Shame but we'll fix it and it and be back even faster next season.

Allan is the Swift turbo on a Hayabusa engine? Why the change? Do you really think 4x4 will be a big improvement? You've been doing well with the std set up haven't you?

Excellent footage and commentary :D

looking at the footage, the added spliter appears to have transformed the car, great move at the chicane! Shame the old girl gave up.

Never the less keep up the good work, and lets hope for better things next year :D

The engine is a G13b which is the engine from a Suzuki swift they seem to be reliable with over 250bhp at the wheels with a turbo.
I am building it because I think I can do it cheap I got a low milage damaged Justy 4x4 for £65 and I have a 3 x G13b enines in stock,
Its just for a laugh I am keeping the Z-Cars mini busa.
Heres a link to my build diary

we pulled the engne out today no 2 big ends gone
it was actually welded to the crank, another second and id have blown the thing to bits
as it is its an easy fix one rod and a crank plus a few other gaskets and rod bolts
next yrs car is having a turbo on it
the power in proplant pauls car is amazing so its now time to up the stakes a bit
im over the moon with the handling and its easy to see im happy to attack any gaps that are there again
the aero package has worked wonders and for the sake of a £60 quid spoiler and a lump of plywood up front the difference is nothing short of ludicrous
pity she blew as i was really up for catching the MK indy of chris maries who was just up the roadand i could visibly se i was catching
cant wait to see how we go against proplant pauls supercharged version next season
he was on fire literally in qualifying so started 30th in less than 3 laps he had passed me and i was 8th on the grid
thats shifting i can tell you
