    Engine Help Please.


    I am new to this forum, and in need of some help.

    I am planning a Kit Car project of about 10 cars in total, but I will start with 1 to see if I can get it to work.

    Here in South Africa we donít have that many enthusiasts, and I have not found any body that can help me up to date.

    Here are my problems:

    1 I am in need of Suzuki Hayabusa engines, 1 to start with, and then hopefully a lot more will be needed.

    2 The engines will be transversally mounted over the rear axle, so it would be a mid engine car.

    3 The car must have a reverse gear, or electric reverse motor.

    4 The car will need a differential with CV style side shafts to transfer the power to the wheels (No chains and sprockets).

    I see that Fisher Sports Cars have a model, the Menace that uses the same setup, so if any one knows if they have a bolt-on solution or for that matter any other solution, please help.

    Any help will be appreciated.

    Some enterprising young soul is doing a Hayabusa conversion in a Fiero.* He is putting 2 of them in where the engine and trany goes and using some set up to convert the chains into a rear end.* I looked for the thread but could not find it.

    You could do a search on for Fiero268 I think.

    There is also someone out there doing a small race car that has a motorcycle engine and some drive setup.* His car is called the DBx.* Do a search in Google for that as well.

    Seems to me someone is making a Lotus 7 with a motorcycle engine so you can search for that as well.

    The last one that I know of but I don't know how they are done is the legands racing cars.* Haven't done any searching for those though.

    Good luck

    Edit: I am wasting a few minutes tonight so I did a quick search on the web and here is what looks to be a pretty good site that contains links to all kinds of stuff about motorcycle powered cars.
