fiat cinquento 250bhp+

Recommended Posts

thought I would share with you all the progress as it happens on my new toy for racing in 2014. I have been racing for over 25 years and have a passion for rear wheel drive cars. starting way back in mk2 escorts. I ran a motorbike powered car last year (pug 106) so to satisfy my craving yet again I find myself with a motorbike powered car but a lot smaller. a fiat cinquento with twin gsxr1000 engines in it, I have begun to strip the car to repaint it in area.s before starting on the outside, post-4738-0-67264000-1385680391_thumb.jpgpost-4738-0-46413800-1385680396_thumb.jpgpost-4738-0-11973800-1385680421_thumb.jpgpost-4738-0-47567700-1385680426_thumb.jpgpost-4738-0-76438100-1385680431_thumb.jpgpost-4738-0-27867300-1385680443_thumb.jpg] still lots if anyone has not seen autograss racing before feel free to ask questions, but plan is to have car all finished and painted ready for rolling road in march with ford club.

in case people where wondering how you get two engines to work in the rear here's a little picture of the special gearbox to allow two engines, the engine output cog fits into the spline on either side, to this joins a pair or equal length sierra drive shafts with high angle lobro joints, mated to sierra rear hubs, so car does have some ford parts lolpost-4738-0-18899300-1385754023_thumb.jpg

well been busy again this week, got most of car painted, just bonnet and roof to go, but can't decide what colour to do them. also wheels all done and back on car. the rear wheels are a beadlock type wheel which means can run very low tyre pressure's in the wet and the rim won't spin in the tyre or pull the tyre off the rim in the corner. they started life as nice rs 7 spokes, but quite please how they have turned out and will look clean for all of 2 mins once hit the trackpost-4738-0-73688100-1387029063_thumb.jpgpost-4738-0-42946000-1387029069_thumb.jpgpost-4738-0-66108700-1387029023_thumb.jpg
