 How is the car going? I am new here and I have just read the V10 engine thread. I was absolutely enthralled.

Please keep up the good work and let us know what you are doing from time to time.

I live in Northampton, England. I do RC helicopters and planes. I used to race off road 1/10 scale buggies.
An engineer at heart but not in practice, yet.

Yes, it's going ok. I was getting impatient with the engine so stuck a couple of electric motors on, so I could drive it a bit. But the electric motors I've got aren't really suited, so I'm getting the V10 working at the moment, with a centrifugal clutch.
Hardest bit will be making the transaxle. It will be 3 speed, with adjustable lsd, and seperate inputs for the electric motors.

Hi Keith,
Firstly congratulations on such a beautiful piece of engineering, your knowledge and skills are to be applauded.
Can you tell me where you sourced the tyres for the car, or did you mould them yourself which wouldn't surprise me.
It's not what you know, it's not who you know.
