New Toy - going to the dark side

Long time since I've posted on here - still building the AB Performance Arion but life took over for much of this year..... but now back building.

In the mean time however, having decided that the Arion will be far good (and expensive) to race properly, and a bit compromised with building it for the road, I decided to look for a new toy to play with on the sprints and hills. Decided to go for an out and out race car in the form of a Force PT that I was offered by someone retiring from the sport. With everyone on here being a bit of a petrolhead, thought i'd share a couple of pictures

And another...



Engine is something a bit unusual - even for the sprints/ hillclimbs being a Hayabusa…. but with a steel billet short stroke crank reducing capacity to 1140cc. This is then boosted with a Rotrex Supercharger to somewhere North of 300bhp - not sure of exact figures yet but will hopefully get it on the rolling road before next season starts.

It should be "quite quick" with over 1000bhp/ton

Hope you like

That looks fantastic and a lot of fun, bet it handles like a go-kart
