G130 YCF sprint car

And i'm beginning to suspect that nissan and bmw knew i was going to do this, the stars have aligned, to the point that a 6206 stock bearing fits the crank and takes the bmw input shaft perfectly. its going to end up 1ft shorter than the nissan box, so thats a bonus, and i'll probably have to make a...

G130 YCF sprint car

Mikey, if you're considering road/sprinty tyres i would seriously look at the vr1 or vr2 r7 or 9 compound, Darryl runs r5 (softest) and seeing just how soft they are, i expected them to be full slicks by now, so a harder compound should give more miles ...in theory...i've seen you drive :)

G130 YCF sprint car

they take any 1b carcass as a trade in for remoulding guys...and those tyres were astounding in the wet at curbs...i was stunned tbh

G130 YCF sprint car

there are zf boxes that are rated at 530nm ...the 330d box as an example, but i think they are a little larger and certainly more expensive to buy. but a 275 lbs/ft factory rated box will cope with whatever we throw at it in a 900kg car...until craig drives it i suppose

G130 YCF sprint car

this is a familiar feeling, but we actually managed to get a running car slightly earlier than last year...so thats good...as an example of how this project has fought us, here is a little story. Darryl bought a set of 1b tyres and they looked great when they were delivered...fast forward a couple o...

G130 YCF my first sprint car

i have to be honest...i pushed the issue. Demon Tweeks say its good for a certain spec, but varley rate the 5 as suitable for bike engines...and i dont think it's quite enough capacity for a roadgoing car. The replacement is a monster and only 1kg heavier for a total of 2 kg ...win win

i was going down this route on the 6a but ended up with the ti to sort and darryl ended up selling the car, so i didnt manage to sort it. speedo drive is relatively simple and uses a smiths speedo from a mk 3 xj6 (electronic) so wont look out of place ...i posted all the details on the rx8 page and ...

Mine seems to hit the clutch slave cylinder too - apparently there’s a Mazda slave that fits. I went for the 5 speed, ratios look better for the Scimitar.
slave for a mazda 6 fits nicely...have a look at the rx8 adapter page on facebook

the friction plate is a 6 puck and sprung centre, so it should be fairly civilised....just not sure how civilised the rest of it is going to be :shock:
