Little Red Booster Returns

Post  Bracpan on Sun Mar 06, 2016 7:55 pm

I have been working on my race Riley Elf "The Little Red Booster" ( Google in Images to see it) for a little while now.
I will soon be starting to show some pictures etc as the car progresses.
It will be a 1.3 Turbo motor with a bit of a twist, not road legal this time, you will see why soon.
Full Space frame chassis, flat floor, very low stance (70mm ground clearance) and a very high power to weight ratio.
I now have a lot of the parts together so things should progress a bit quicker from now on ( Fingers crossed)
Speak soon

Hi
Yes I will do but not started Fibre Glassing yet, that will be when the welding is finished and the weather is a bit better..
I will get everything ready so it will only take a weekend to make the mould.
Speak soon

I have been held up waiting for the rear hubs to be machined, they are with the 3rd company now, but I had a test one brought over last week and they look great so the others will me machined ASAP.

Chassis is more of less done, the front suspension is all mocked up and working and so is the steering, so getting there, once I get the hubs back I can make the rear suspension arms and then I can put the car on its wheels so I can start the bodywork, all the arches have to be redone as the car sits a lot lower this time.

While i am doing the body I hope to have the engine rebuilt so its ready to install when the chassis is finished and painted... plenty yo keep me busy.

Its now on its wheels and the Body has been placed over the Chassis ready to be fixed then I can make a start on the body as a lot of the panels have to be adjusted due to the lower ride height.

The is an article about the Elf on the Mini Spares Web Site please have a look at the link below. More to come soon .
