    PS I may need to talk to you about this car is a week or so, just need to those home used to idea of 9 cars. Shit is starting to be pushed up hill.
    sorry edited statement, 'I'm only allowed to drive an automatic' because of leg weakness from MS, i started the project before my lic conditions where changed, but was expecting to be able to drive it with the sequential box and an ignition cut on the gear changes when i was still allowed to drive manual etc
    thats when i looked at other control changes, like the pushbutton gear change and a hand clutch.

    my engineers opinion, was it could be an air compressor engine, as long as it meets the emissions requirements, not an issue with a fuel injected bike engine and the normal prerequisites (CAT etc)

    for gear control, i have seen a separate lever for reverse engagement (which was my plan) and paddles behind the steering wheel for up and down the gears.https://shop.mnrsportscars.com/colle...trols/Controls
    relatively simple system using a cable to the bikes normal gear selector.
    you can get simple gear display from ebay or similar which plugs into the bikes system to indicate gear position.

    there is also the options of the push button controls, like proshift etc for the gearbox controls (i was going to get one of these systems and use a modified version of the gear paddles as a hand clutch, by deleting one paddle, as i am only allowed to drive an automatic car, which the only definition they could give me at the RMS was that it has 2 pedals),

    Very tempting given that I know an engineer that might be able to get this across the line in the ACT....

    I thought ICV registration in NSW was effectively dead due to the question mark over ABS.

    If anyone here is even remotely interested in a Clubbie these things are weapons. I test drove one these back in 2016 and was and experience. As for rego, I'd be inclined to say fuck rego and just trailer it. My Westfield even though is road registered, gets trailered to the track because you will need to take bits and pieces with you and it's just easier.

    the engineer is 'pro bike engine cars' with his own in the build.
    using a late model bike, emissions arent a problem, just all the usual's apply, decent CAT, muffler, carbon canister etc.
    induction noise can be a hurdle, but a decent airbox addresses that aswell.

    What has your engineer said about registration in general and in particular for a BEC?

    That is brilliant, and very cheap.

    If I wasn't way too deep into three other project cars at the moment I'd be all over it. GLWS!
