nice project?
what axle are you using?  do you have to make a tunell of some sort?
400 BHP - 650 KG\'s = 616 BHP Per Ton of Rotary Power

That\'s the way to do it! :Thumbsup!

That\'s going to be fab ! Would be great to see just how heavy it is with very good power to weight ratio.

Looks like a fun project, wish you guys all the best :D

Sweet ride you`ve got there, always fancied doing this on an old small car like a mini or something. I take it its gonna be rwd? Are you fabricating a rwd floor pan, what kind of power are we talkin here? Sorry with all the questions but this really is an interesting project.

That\'s going to be nuts, having been in a 180bhp starlet which wasn\'t slow a 500+ one will be mental :D
