    I have started to build a off roader based on the Suzuki Bandit 1200 motorbike motor. It has a 2.1m wheel base and should go like the clappers. Pics to follow

    Here is the tricky bit...we have to have solid rear drive with no diff, but have to have reverse, So Between Konrad and myself we have come up with a reverse using the planitery gears from a lexus transmission, The main shaft I have had the splines cut to take subaru CV joints but has a spline to take the internals.
    You will see as I go as even Im confused :mrgreen:

    Hi Shane, Yes its to race,I have stripped the motor and its in good nick. Konrad is building one much the same (thats where the basic plan came from) and yes we have talked about the 1000. He sold the old one and now has a bigger motor 8O
    I have had to stop working on it so I can get a boat going for Xmas, but after that its back onto it

    Regards Mike

    Ive raced the 1000 twice now, Id recomend it too anyone but shareing the drive with someone else would be a good idea if it was your first time. I beleive theyve had teams from Dubai, USA, Australia and England showing intereast..
