Update
We definitely need to fix this haha. Think we'll have to make some sort of alloy plate to stop it melting when it spits out flames.
Image
We got an Ikeya sequential shifter off a friend to see if we can modify it to fit the car, which would be brilliant
Image
Also just got an LSD from gripper diffs, a 6.33 final drive from M factory which should give us a top speed of around 130mph with 15s or around 145mph with 17s :)
and a baffled sump kit from CPL Racing to keep the engine running smoothly.
Image
Image
Image

Hopefully test it all soon, the car should be even faster :D

We've been doing a bit of work in the cockpit over the past couple of days
Image
Had the Engine and box out, took the box with final drive and LSD over to Sitech and fitted the baffled sump kit
Image
Also started on the final shape for the bulkhead
Image

next on the list is to fibreglass the bulkhead, sort out the brake setup a bit more, fit power steering and then probably put it back together for the next test

It will be interesting if you get the shifter to work. Has been one of my thoughts how to make a sequential style lever to H pattern.

We should be able to get it to work providing prototyping goes well, at the moment it'll really just mean that we can't put it into the wrong gear and so we cant change down and blow it up haha

Thought I'd updated this thread ages ago
We've managed to get some fibreglass work done on the bulkhead
Image
Image

And try the K20 in an MGTF subframe for the rear
Image

Modifying it to fit the exhaust and for the engine to sit right
Image

Fabricating where the subframe connects to the rest of the cage
Image
Image

Adding an analog rev counter to the dash display and power steering
Image

Found some photos from earlier on in the build when we were designing the fuel tank and the shaping of the front of the tub to hold the front wheel

We've more recently been cutting out the old rear wheel arches and creating tubs for new ones as there was slight clearance issues and this may be a bit lighter also :D
Image
Image
Made a front sump guard basic shape that we will remanufacture in aluminium
Image
Fitted these really light wheels only 4.7kg each corner with some D Mack tyres for testing

I'm guessing DMT-RC as everything else comes in 18" only.

They look like the old Maxsport RB5, I used to use on the Impreza.

Road legal slicks, made for interesting driving on a wet A823 !

We've been welding and strengthening the MG subframe a bit more

And working away developing the quick release throttle cables
