Hi guys, i am starting the build of two lightwieght turbo mx5's with a friend.
I will keep you posted, feel free to comment on the build. I know there are a couple of mx5 racers on here that will no doubt have a lot more knowledge than myself on these cars. They are not being built to suit a racing class other than superlap. We really wanted to see how fast we can make the little cars go around a curcuit, without going to tube frame. We are removing a lot of weight by removing unwanted metal, and making all panels from carbon fibre. The panels will be redesigned with downforce/aero in mind. We will have full ground effects too. At first we will be reusing the nb 1.8 motors with turbo aprox 180rwkw's. And would like the weight down to around 750kg's.
We cut about 15 kg's out of it last night.
Our goal is a 1:40 around the island.
