The Rocket powered by Honda 2.2 Type R that I built is for sale on Ebay. Terrible description and only 1 of my original photos to show off the build, so I doubt it will do much. The seller paid me £15k for it so someone could grab a real bargain here.

...aaand it's been relisted already along with fresh timewaster comment. Still feck all about the car, simply 'google Rocket Type R'. Have you not got copy'n'paste on your computer or do you hate money?
Rocket build in Dublin using an ST170 donor. Driven by an ME221 ecu, Jenvey 45s on DanST manifold, DanST backplate and 90mm trumpets. Vroom vroom.
Wasted in the region of £500 and a full 24 hrs of my time. Sat in the car throttle cable snaps we fix this and go for a drive stop off at fuel station and discover no reverse gear. I am the one who had his time and money wasted.
Shabwon and I spoke on the phone after he won the auction. There was no problem with reverse gear when I sold the car so that would suggest it's probably something that the new owner has disturbed when removing and refitting the engine.
I had the gearbox fully stripped, checked and new seals etc and there was no faults with it, I also fitted a new genuine Honda clutch so I am sure it's a simple fix and still a huge bargain at £10,200 IMHO. Who knows maybe it will do less this time ?
The photo's of the car that he has listed don't do it justice, there are hundreds in my build which he could use and sure he has a camera? The photo even has my old cherished plate which is 13 plate so makes the car look older, as it's actually a 16 plate. No mention of the mileage either which I believe is only about 350 miles from new.
I can't afford to buy it at the moment as I have invested everything into my software business which is in it's first year of trading. I am still planning to build again, but I am going to design the chassis myself based loosely on the Ariel Nomad with Honda power again.
