Poject Discussion Forum Rules
This is a new section of where you guys can discuss other users cars. There are just a few rules that need to be followed for this forum to stay nice, clean and easy to use:

1. ONE thread per car. Search the forum for an existing thread before starting your own, things stay tidy that way.
2. Try and stay on topic if you can.
3. Thread titles must be in this format: Username's and the car project

I have created this section so it keeps the build diarys clean and allows the builder of the car to keep us updated a bit like a BLOG so please use this section to disscuss the builders cars and we should see a much easier forum to navigate.

Just saw the dyno sheet (!!!!) . I presume the supercharger comes with an upgraded pair of gentlemans equipment? That's a LOT of power in something that light. That's like Caterham building an R800(ish) with better aero than a brick!

All of a sudden I'm feeling quite inadequate!

Seriously, that's amazing - and as you say, none of the big vices of Turbo!

Cheers - N

It's easy to drive. Performs like a stock honda accord round town because the compression ratio is standard, so no loss of low down power. No sudden rush of power so it is easy to keep traction.

I was a bit concerned about it being undriveable with that sort of power to weight ( it was never my intention to get that much power. I blame Jon at Spec performance). Should be fun at the Hawkeswood sprint in November.

Should be ballistic! (Says he with a mere 240 hp at the wheels). Did you pick up much power with the tune - before/after?

Yes it's good, up from 270hp to 406 at the wheels. It is linear, so 134hp at 3000, 214 at 4000, 308 at 5000, 355 at 6000, 406 at 6600. The boost is capped at 15psi (6600rpm). I usually run up to 7200, but I won't any more.
