Nice. Didn't realise they are so tight for room under the bonnet!

I've been looking at pettit superchargers, but they don't seem to have any availability at the moment. Looks good

The Petitt supercharger was discontinued quite a few years ago now...theres plenty of demand for them but not readily available...

Hi Jarno, no it was just a heads up, to see what interest  i would get if i sld next year.
Lead me not into temptation, I can find it myself...
But i can always do with some help now due to, my advancing years!

That supercharged bay looks amazing, makes the Rotus engine bay look like a bad day in Bosnia.

I'm feeling my n/a 8 may be somewhat underpowered lol
Its just Rotors and GRP

Fair enough.....

Having never driven the 8 before I tore it apart I don't have anything to compare it to I guess.

I don't want to be disappointed with the end result, lightweight is the key in the first instance.

But I want it tractable too, no point having lots of ponies if they ain't pushing along.......

Itching to drive it, or was that from the fibreglass?
Its just Rotors and GRP
