I know this is not two wheels but it is a project. The start as of today - just the bare chassis.

Great start to your project GM. If you need a spare chassis Hellrazzer should have one available in a few months.!!!!!!!

believe it or not a highly tuned 1300 air cooled VW Beetle engine giving approx 100 BHP.
Top times around Brands Indy is 51.8 sec

Car weighs 391 kilo's but has a fair amount of lead in it

Snetterton times are 1" 17.4 sec and Cadwell Park 1" 33's
