For Sale is my MK Indy R Hayabusa Turbo. After 3 years of constant tinkering and refinement it is time for me to make my move in to Circuit Racing in
2016, Giving me a year to sell and buy/build a new one.
The car as the spec you see now is hugely different to how it was, I hate to know how much money it owes me, in fact I think the other half would
leave me if she found out the true cost! The car has covered only 1564 Miles since new, when the new dash was fitted in spring 2014 the mileage was
transferred from the clocks to this display.
I have owned this car since December 2011, buying it directly from MK as a used car. Over the winter of 2011, the car was stripped and had a full nut
and bolt rebuild to ensure it was up to my standard. I made a long list of upgrades I wished to do to it over the coming years and drove it for the
season of 2012 faultlessly, with a mixture of Sunday drives/track days.
Over the winter of 2012 the engine was sent back to Holeshot Racing for a condition check and refresh. It was not required but due to me wanting to
have everything checked I sent it away. Nothing was found wrong, and as part of the refresh all piston rings were changed, gaskets replaced, valve
stem seals replaced and head clearances checked. Whilst the engine was away, I had the Viscous LSD removed and a custom spec’d plate type LSD built
for my application. Fire extinguisher was fitted and harnesses changed to FIA spec.
2013 Season was much the same as 2012, mixed driving of track and road, towards the end of the year the engine started to develop smoke on start only
after being hot. This was traced down to a worn cylinder head guide and planned to be replaced over the winter.
Winter of 2013 was when the car underwent I massive change, after saving and building a huge pile of parts. The front half of the chassis was stripped
back to bare metal where all welds were inspected. The front bulkhead was replaced and supports made to make way for the adjustable pedal box and new
steering column. The chassis was then treated, primed and re painted using POR15 two step paint.
The pedal box was fitted with new steering column too, new braided brake lines fitted throughout and front wishbones removed, stripped, zinc primed
and then re-powder coated.
Whilst the engine was removed, the head was stripped, all valve guides replaced and re sealed, finally rebuilt and engine installed back in to the
The wiring was then addressed and minimalized. The dashboard was removed, everything replaced and re-wired. Race technology Dash 2 was fitted with an
ECU interface. Bulkhead connections were installed making it easy to remove the dashboard as one complete unit.
The car was then fully rebuilt and sent for remapping in March 2014, where the power curve was smoothed out and made far less aggressive. We
concentrated on making the power delivery smooth, which ultimately led to the car being more far more drivable.
2014 started with a full geometry setup and corner weighting to myself, what a difference this has made, but sadly I had limited mileage this year due
to a gearbox failure mid year caused by a circlip. This caused a large amount of damage to the gears. The engine was removed and I fitted a complete
Quaife HD gearbox that RPE use in their Radical engines, I believe this is one of the only engines outside a radical that has this fitted. This allows
the top speed of the car to reach 142 mph. The difference in gear changes are very noticeable, quick, and accurate. After this I completed another
two track days and the car didn’t miss a beat, I would say it drove the best I have ever had it but in the whole year I have completed no more than
The great thing about this car is that it is still road legal. At the moment as you can imagine with the weather changing, the car is currently SORN
as it is now what I class as the winter (always comes off the road end of October) It will be due its first MOT shortly, which I planned to leave
until the spring next year to bring it in line with putting it back on the road. Having the car MOT’ed can be discussed with the buyer, depending on
I will not allow any test pilots, so please do not ask for a test drive. It is likely you will not be insured to do so anyway. I can (within reason)
bring it to a track day that you may be attending to show you there.
This car is possibly the highest power/spec MK around today. If you by this car, you are not doing it for the looks but more for the engineering and
performance this car will produce. The car is noticeably quicker than an Atom 3, and for this asking price is a fraction of the cost. I have the
receipt of the original engine bill, totaling just under £17.5K, so you can appreciate the asking price. This is not your average garage built turbo
setup, but a designed, tested and proven Drag Racing engine fitted to a car. Built by one of the most known bike engine turbo specialists in Europe.
The car has been tailored to suit this application, drive train, brakes and chassis set up to make this an enjoyable car to drive.
Not one person that has had the chance to drive this or be a passenger has gout out of the car with anything less than a huge smile on their face. And
I hope the next owner can continue that!
