Thumbs up Re: Aussie Chit Chat

My vehicle engineer is a fan of Toyota running gear and I also have 2 friends who own wrecking yards (1 is a specialty Toyota wrecker) but as you can tell by my chosen name, I prefer the Nissans. Apart from that, I rather like the thought or around 500 hp running in a 700Kg vehicle. Do you reckon that that will turn the heads of a mid 60's driver leaving them for dead from the lights?
I also have access to a load of Mitsubishi vehicle parts as the Robin Hood is running a 4G63 twin cam but normally aspirated but bolt on a turbo and and double the output without much trouble. Also looked at running a Lancer Evo 8 or 9 when one comes in. The yellow kit is the Dax as it arrived home. The chassis has been reinforced to meet the Australian Design Rules and is now double that when it arrived. The Robin Hood has had extensive chassis strengthening and is very rigid for high horsepower.
For the Dax, see:

Kitcars: Dax Cars the kit car manufacture of component kitcars

For those wanting to learn more about the Robin Hood, check out the Robin Hood Owners website:

Robin Hood Owners Club and Register (RHOCaR)

Cheers.

Neill

Ive just been reading about the proposed carbon tax the the government want to introduce and for the life of me cant see how it will reduce co2.

The good thing is that my firewood for the oven will be carbon tax free.

Neil,
I love your Clubman. I have lusted after one of those for years, but now I want the Suffolk SS Jaguar kit. I have currently just upgraded my recumbent LWB bicycle with a new hub motor and lithium ion 48V batteries. It is wickedly quick, pulls 48kph without touching the pedals and minus the front and rear fairings. Shall take some pics to post soon. Weather up here in T'sville is gorgeous. Just about to harvest tomatoes. It's more like a Victorian summer.

Great thread you started Doug reading about some of the car restoring stuff has made me reminisce of some of my first cars. I had a 1972 HQ GTS Monaro Coupe then a 1974 HJ GTS Monaro sedan. Loved both those cars and nothing I've had since has had as much character and nowhere near as much fun to drive.
If I had the space and more importantly the money I'ld love to get another Coupe, sexy muscle car a real head turner.
Oven stuff is on hold due to weather/work but come September (4 weeks off) I'll get it finished.

the plan for the car isn't fully decided yet but i am looking at going with a ls1 v8 with a 6 speed manual
you might like to contact the boys at
http://www.eddywreckers.com
as they have a 130,000 km VZ SS Commodore 245kW Gen III V8 with all looms, computer, starter kit, pedals, exhaust, the works available. It has a 6 speed box on it but i believe that it has been sold to a fellow employee of the company.
Email either Rob or Ian and they will provide all the details and photos to you. I spoke with them yesterday and said tht I would contact you with some details.
They are Mitsubishi specialists but happened to also get into Commodores for their biggest customer, a taxi repair company.

Good luck

Neill

This is my recumbent bike I built in '02. it is the second one i have built and I recently upgraded the motor and batteries. The motor is a "Golden Motor" from Shanghai. It has no transmission and makes less noise than a mountain bike with knobbly tyres. The motor has an internal controller that can be connected to a computer to alter various settings. It has regenerative braking and cruise control. The batteries are 48 V lithium ion phosphate and have a range of around 50 Km (haven't flattened them yet) Top speed on the flat without wind or pedalling is 47 Kph, higher if pedalling ,tailwind or going downhill, but I expect this to improve when I fit the front and rear fairings.I use it as a commute 20Km round trip approx. twice a week. The kids at the school I teach at call it 'The Time Machine".
