Spectre race car

Postby timhoverd » Thu Jul 09, 2009 3:41 pm

Just in case any you aren't aware, I'm just starting a build of what I hope will be a racing Spectre. Mind you, I've not got anything yet, but Jeremy reckons I'll get the chassis in 3 weeks or so. (I need a completely bare chassis for reasons that will become clear at some point.)

I'll be documenting all this on my normal blog which appears here.

This will be a bike-engined car, because I race in the 750 Motor Club's RGB (Road Going Bike engined) series. My current intention is to use the same engine as I currently use in my race Fury, which is a 2007 Honda CBR1000, courtesy of a nice chap in American who dropped it on the left side not long after he'd bought the bike. :)

Buidling a Spectre for racing is a bit of a leap into the dark, but it could be fun. I just hope I don't end up slower than the Fury. It does mean I have a few issues, such as whether I fit a full cage or not and how I make it work with my HANS device, something that isn't clear at the moment.

I'll try and post something here when I update the blog. However, if you're interested in watching it's probably best to go to the blog and subscribe to the RSS feed that's there.

Me too, your blog is always a welcome distraction from reality - are RGB's at Cadwell this weekend?

I'm afraid we're not, we're on our summer break at the moment. We did Cadwell earlier in the year. In fact, there's only 5 races left and 3 (!!!) of them are at Mallory. Oh joy, I'm just bound to bend the car...
