Dont stop working on this project! This is one i could actually build as well.....thing would make a sweet auto cross or short circuit racer. Like a lot of people have pointed out your exhaust could be causing you the problems, another thing would be to check out your intake air temps make sure they're not to hot.

I would love to see it quite as a mouse . It would be a great sleeper car when it's all lined out . People are always taking off stock exhaust from bikes . Get 2 from a 1300 or 1400 cc bike that is 4 into 1 . That should give it a good sound and let it free flow as well . In the last couple of months I have started watching your videos and love seeing them . This is a great build that I would like to see move forward and see it on a drag strip and road raced . It's hard to tell , but the final drive gear seams to low . I would like to see a set of slicks in the future on the back end.

Jeep 4.0L is narrow enough to fit, will make better noises, plus more options for making a legitimate road going car. 300 hp should be no sweat with turbo. Reverse flow head makes packaging easier, need custom manifolds. It might seem like you're backing down, but the sled motor will probably fight you forever.

I've got a 79 spitfire, and found that you can put 1992-1993 Mazda Miata seats in those spits, tight fit, they touch the doors, but HIGHLY much more comfortable, plus you have headrests..

Full send boys. That thing is a screamer. It’s awesome just to see how you guys employ such fabulous craftsmanship when finishing off all the little projects, that are normally such a pain. I.e. guards, brackets, covers, and braces. It’s what makes your channel entertaining, because in the end all your projects come out rock solid. It’s always one more thing that needs to be totally re-made and to see the time and care you guys put in to make it all come out just right is the true joy I take from your channel. Much love boys

Would love to work with you on the clutching of this build. You should look into Oalf Aaen’s book on snowmobile clutching. Your losing a significant amount of your horsepower to a bad clutching set up. My family and I have raced and or been race officials for the last 20 plus years and know a lot about how to make your clutches work for you.

I enjoy the creativity and problem solving involved in this project - although I do think the rear end may experience some "spontaneous disassembly" from all of that torque. Please keep it going - Thanks
Chris Henniker
Chris Henniker - 4 måneder siden
That engine sounds like it's straining with the weight it's expected to push. I'd have gone for a Ford Duratec or BMW 16 valve, especially if you're going to use it every day. They'll have better low to mid range torque, which is needed for street driving.

Heck ya guys! A nice well done exhaust out the back looking stock would be gold! Once you do four into one it will sound amazing! Try to keep the like fired cylinders exit into each others collector then dump into common pipe if room allows. Hit me up for any help or if you need any stainless steel pipe!

That 300hp sounds impressive but that's taking 10,000rpm into account. What's the torque numbers look like? The old adage comes to mind "horsepower sells motors, torque wins races".

The Bulkhead / needs the Brace onto the chassis - youll find 4 x 1/2'' captive threads in chassis - just forward of prop UJ . Its holds a steel / alloy brace which comes down from the dash. If you dont fit it - chances are doors will open on hard corners ..... some people call it the radio mount - as it serves that purpose too . Great freakin idea young fellas - love the build . ( ps the doors on my vitesse opened several times on our '' young lovers trip to france 20 yrs ago - hence i found out why ..)
