Basic gist of it is that it's a Kit car, and if you have a 96-01 honda accord for another approx 16k you can build one of these and it'll weigh around 1,800lbs.

Um, I'm about 80% sure that I'm going to build one but I just want to get some more info on it... any body ???

Damn No one?

that looks tight as hell, and if it is only 1800lbs it won't take much power to make it fly. You saying it's only 16k w/o the engine and tranny and you're just gonna pull one out of an accord? I thought they were talking about it being a ford powertrain. (maybe I'm just too hungover to understand). 16k seems cheap. I always wanted a kit car too, but thats got to be one of the nicest ones I've ever seen. Maybe when I'm older and have some money.

Drool........

MicroSlash - "Seeing myself in a fire engine red F1...."


#10

I'm guessin you're gonna need a shitload of tools, and a shitload of knowhow.

Other than that, if I saw you drivin down the street in that thing, I'd be like "damn, hes badass."


#11

Nice wheels.... Similar in design to a car I've grown to love. I'm obssessed with the Dodge Viper series. Sporting 500 BHP at the wheels... (Stock). The car's frame was built around the V-10 engine and rides low to the ground like the K-1, F-1. However, much cheaper than the F-1. Unfortunately, the Germans bought the design, implementation, and rights of production from Dodge.

What's the quarter mile on the K-1?
0 - 60 in?
Top Speed?
Weight of the frame?

Like I said, I'm a Viper fan and the K-1 looks very enticing. What's the cost on that (Stock)?

That is a mean looking car. Nice weight distribution, a number of engines to choose from.
If you are going to be an international man of mystery, you need an exotic car.
Why not that one?


#13

Wow, that is pretty neat! Seems like there are more and more of these types of things coming up all the time now. I'd do it!


#14

My only question is if you are going to get a kit that cool.. why are you going to put an Accord engine in that thing?

Of course, I am an automotive dumbass - but a car that cool looking should be FAST. Right?

That thing should black - it looks like the Batmobile. Cool.


#15

shitload of know how- Check

Shitload of tools- one uncle has a body shop, the other is a mechanic.

Plus I have a friend who has built a kit car and a solar car (the latter from scratch) every year he was in high school with his engineering team. So I can do it. And my uncle has a honda accord on blocks. I just need 16g's now :stuck_out_tongue:

No i don't know the times, etc thats why I asked. I really can't find too much info on it.

the turnkey apparently is off a ford power train

I think i'd build it off of an accord base, it's more reliable and parts are cheaper.

say what u will about honda's those things last for fucking ever. So imagine having a honda like THAT :stuck_out_tongue:

@ approx 1800lbs, with a rebuilt V6, maybe larger fuel injectors, other slight mod's... that thing SHOULD be a fucking monster as far as speed. Also they have a racing version (giggles like school girl again)

I don't know if it would fit, but imagine the possiblities if you can fit a (twin) turbo or a supercharger in there.

And with an accord you can find bolt ons for that shit lol. pretty much zero work.

Of course I did find this article:

http://www.nbc10.com/news/4500340/detail.html

From the article:

[i]The students and three of their teachers created a custom-built 300 horsepower hot rod from scratch.

"It goes from 0 to 60 in under 4 seconds," said one student.

The car has has reached speeds of 110 mph.[/i]

But there car runs from fucking SOYBEAN OIL. And gets 50 miles to the fucking gallon...

Please remind me why the HELL we use gasoline again????

Anyway I won't be using soybean oil, but with a fuel efficient v6, light as hell car, and a possible turbo... you bet your ass I'll save some gas.

besides lambos, ferrari's and the like are all delicate, you need to warm that shit up for like 15min before you take it for a spin.

Dependable Honda base, Looks like a million bucks, but costs you a 1/4 of the price, and SAVES you on gas?

I can't pass this up. Ricer's would eat their shit hehe :smiley:

Only worry...

I'm sure it's straight line fast tho, but what about suspension and shit :frowning:

I like to take curves like a fucking maniac.

nice ride. laters pk


#18

Alot of these kit cars are based on using the Pontiac Fiero as a donor car.

I hate to piss on your party Xen, but It remainds me of those really cheap 'kit cars' that folks would buy and put VW motors in several years ago. I'd try and find one that has been built, and see what it looks and feels like.

But that's just my opinion.


#20

Rainjack has some good advice...alot of kit cars ride and feel just like that, a kit car. But definitely keep me posted and we would all love to see pics of it from start to finish..Kit cars are a lot better today than they were just 10 years ago. But test drive one first if you can....
