Currently driving my Superseven but thinking about building a new car in a couple of years. Either a Rocket or a Exobusa, but I think it will be a Rocket.
My superseven has a Zetec so I want to build with another engine and Duratec 2,0 seems to be a common engine in Superseven-style cars. It´s lighter and can do 180-190 hp with stock engine and throttle bodies, but if you want more it will be expensive. I have only seen one Rocket with Duratec engine, why do not more build with Duratec-engine? It should be quite straight-forward as with Zetec, or am I wrong? I have read it´s possible to order a Rocket with Duratec-mounts so that shouldn´t be an issue.
Consider the all new 3rd generation Exocet, based on a MK3 MX5 donor with a 2.0L all alloy engine and 165 BHP as standard.
The MK3 kit is now available to order, it features the all new G-type bodywork which has been extremely well accepted and welcomed.
It's a great piece of, well err, kit!
The donor provides you with trick alloy front wishbones, fancy multi link rears and alloy uprights for, well, nowt as they are taken from the donor. You also get to save money by using the stock pedal assembly, wiring harness and ECU, switch gear and steering wheel, suspension, steering rack and column, exhaust, brakes, master cylinders, fuel tank and pump/sender, seats and belts, servo and even the ABS with traction control. You also get to use the MK3 instrumentation to save you money and ensure compatibility. You will even utilise minor items such as the donor throttle cable and handbrake cables.
Exocets are so well thought out, small on cost, big on thrills. No compromise, no waste.
Yes you can build an amazing EXO car for the same price as 10 Atom's and you don't have an engine hanging out back to provoke over steer.
G-type kits need nothing apart from the donor, the comprehensive package for the MK3 version is just, £3495 or just £2795 for the MK1 and 2 G-type. Add lights and chassis paint if you like, that's it, the shortest list of car optional extra's in the world!
