Hi chaps , it\'s not a Mazda i\'m affraid but a rear engine 1970 Fiat 600 peasant mobile (usually found taking chickens down to the market in 3rd world countries) !!!!! :rollin
I\'m new to the world of rotary power but i\'ve spoke to some nice people about engines and things over the last few weeks and it all seems very cool .
The car will be a street legal and should be around 600 kilos in weight as it\'s very small . It\'s having 1000TCR Abarth arches with 7x 13 inch wheels on the front and 8.5x13 inch wheels on the rear . Tyres will be Avon CR500\'s as used on the latest Caterham Superlite R500 model .
The 13B turbo rotary engine will be out the back mounted to a G50 Porsche 911 transaxle , Porsche drive shafts , Porsche/mazda flywheel with Porsche clutch etc all mated to a Porsche/Fiat hybrid hub set up . The engine will be a big single turbo affair with aftermarket ECU , fuel injection , charge cooler , etc etc . Power will be 350-550bhp depending on how brave i\'m feeling once it\'s working , lol . Even at 300bhp it will be scary but 500bhp should blast past superbikes for fun (833bhp per ton !!!!) :WaveBye .
I won\'t bore you all too much yet as the bodyshell is still undergoing rust removal but i\'ll post up a few pics as it matures . I\'m hoping it will be finished inside the next 2 years but it might take 10 !!!!! :rolleyes:
