27 August 2013 - 10:03 PMThat looks amazing! And so cheap! I've never fancied anything like that before but I think it would help my road riding massively as I get freaked out by riding on grass and gravel and anything that makes the bike squirmy! Great pics :)
Cheers Bird. You'd love it. Its great when you know that if you come off it doesn't really matter as its a motocross bike that's meant to get dropped from time to time so a few extra scratches dont matter. Also you aren't going too fast when doing it either. Its not like you're doing 50mph or anything. We barely got out of 1st and 2nd B)
It was strange at first feeling it (the bike) slide around underneath you but even after such a short first trip out on it, it started to feel more normal by the time we left.
I'm just looking forward to going again now :D

13 August 2013 - 09:02 PMI hadn't seen this thread or the blog before but read it start to finish yesterday morning.
Great blog and a really cracking build and that car will be incredibly quick.
I'm really impressed, good work!
Thank you. It takes some time doing the blog, but its nice to be able to look back at what I have done, plus it helps others who are looking to potentially take that step in to doing a build, or maybe those that are a month or two behind me. Always nice to hear people are reading it though :thumbsu:
It bloody should be quick. Probably going to be pushing a safe 250 bhp without going mad with the turbo size and spec of additional parts, and in a car weighing just under 500kg and with two fat sticky slick-like-road-legal-tyres on the rear putting the power down on the floor, should see 0-60 mph in about 3 seconds I reckon. Its a pretty good power/weight/traction combo :thumbsu:
12 August 2013 - 09:35 PMHow's tricks, Jon?
Not seen you on here in a while, how are things? http://www.bikerforu...ult/thumbsu.gif
"Tricks" are good thanks guys. Being bikeless and occupied with the kit car and work etc have just kept me out of mischief and off here. Not sure that lack of mischief will stay with me with this beast though :thumbsu:
Wicked cool. Or something like what you'd expect a school kid to say, except I'm not a school kid but think like one when I see a bike like that. Want one.
Still just as hip as before eh SB :thumbsu:
