Spaceframe Build

 

The latest project that under construction is being built to compete in the “Fastest Mini in the World” competition.  

What is it? you may ask... It is the last KAD Spaceframe ever to be made, and the only one left in the country. By the end of the built it will feature a supercharged Suzuki Hayabusa 1300cc engine, have a Carbon Fibre body and be lower than a snakes belly. Watch this space for the build as it happens!

Right: the spaceframe as it was bought.

Turbo-Technics supercharger fitted.

Engine and exhaust installed.
Trial fit of the AP racing floor-mounted pedals. After a bit of head scratching I decided to fabricate my own master cylinder mounts and discard the AP frames.
