Hi again, Not trying to blow wind up anyones backsided, but I did win a northeast junior rotax cart championship then went on to bikes, from brittish championship minimotos, 2 stroke Gp 125 and 250, superstock then superbike , I have had many a nice car, s1 and s2 160 elise and not long ago sold a very sorted evo6 but the 13mpg took the egde off the fun.
I know there is always room for improvement but i have a pritty good idea on how to make a car go forward.
I have only had chance to have a play of fairly straight roads (up to now) so we will see.
I did my home work and I did lean towards build quality of the type R and lets face it, it is a very good looking and very practical car. The honda blades they arnt the fastest bike but the quality and the handling are supream, if you can get out of a corner faster then your faster down the straights
The Cpl ecu,, if you can get a 30bhp and gain at topend and more rpm then thats not to bad, but still seems expensive.
as for lowering the powerband, well i still cant grasp that unless your drag or sprint racing, surly once your on the move doing a quick one you never let your rpm drop lower than 6k.
why didnt they use the S2000 engine, they have proved they can get 240bhp out of there engines, How long have the S2000's been out ? im sure they now can get more than 240bhp and made them lighter, then they could have upped the gearing, hitting 60 in second gear for all you sprint racers
Then you would have a quality build car that out runs the astra vxr, st's ect.
Anyone used nitrus ?
I look forward to your views.
