3 few years ago I sold my race Westfield and hung up my racing boots and bought one for a road/trackday toy a 2013 with a Honda s2000 engine and 6 speed box, added my own bit's like bigger brakes,oil cooler,full roll cage ect, had her looking mint then took it too a track evening at knockhill and binned it bending the chassis in a bad way allway's wanted to do a fresh build so now was my chance.

This was the old girl before the crash

Like your build BUT, you are going to make the same mistake again. The Honda engine is a very tall engine , raising the centre of gravity. For a small fee I would be willing to take said engine and gearbox off your hands :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :D would fit in my project better.
