hi all

Postby Steve j » Tue Jun 25, 2019 8:28 pm

after meeting tony t at bromley pageant at the weekend i thought i would join up and say hi.
im steve jenner and have built a couple of roof chopped minis in the past but have never owned a kitcar and thought it was about time to try and build a car from scratch.

i started my project last september and have got a long journey ahead.
in short its a one off chassis looking a bit like a arial atom but its a single seater with a subaru impreza engine mounted in the back, haynes roadster suspension geometry and mx5 uprights and brakes.

thanks in advance for all the pis and advise ill be asking you guys for

Hi Steve, welcome to the best kit car around. You certainly got your hands full on that project, there are plenty of very helpful people on here, but it will come with a lot of piss taking.
Crack on Steve and keep us updated

Welcome, interesting project there, a few challenges ahead no doubt. I’ve had previous with a scooby engined V-Storm, cooling and gear change being the two biggest head aches.

thanks all for the possative comments.
as far as the gear linkage ive used a modified mr2 gear leaver with mgtf cables and a custom linkage. it seams to work ok so far but please let me know if you see any problems with it.
what problems did u have with the cooling system.

Pretty similar solution to mine, below..

Radiators were marginal especially rear mounted facing towards the back. Looks like your engine is NA if the coolant system is routed the same as the turbo lump you need to make sure you get some coolant to the cold side of the thermostat. I guess you’re not running a heater so connect the two ends of the pipes together to complete the circuit and ensure some hot coolant gets to the cold side otherwise the thermostat won’t operate properly. Or remove water pump impeller and thermostat and run an electric water pump.
