    project lucky

    Post  ashley supercharged lewis on Mon Apr 19, 2010 3:29 pm

    so as everyone knows lucky is off the road.and so far the engine is out and broken up,gearbox is with me ready to be taken apart and the plans are

    block to 1293 fully prepared etc
    omega forged 18 cc dished pistons
    rods smoothed worked and shot peened and strengthened
    crank fully worked
    straight cut drop gears
    SCCR box
    quaife lsd
    more BOOST!!
    roll cage
    mb racing split rims 10x6.5(maybe force racing)
    4 pot brake conversion to accompany wheels
    new seats
    some paintwork (maybe new colour)
    maybe aluminium doors and perspex windows
    and some small modifications to the body

    all mated to what i already have.aiming for some high horsepower this time.higher than before anyway lol.aiming for 190ish

    quaife diff has arrived with this rather expensive piece of metal i have got a key chain and some stickers(big OOOOOOO now everyone )

    london to brighton will probably be the next spendature with beaulieu being the one after that then its all just machining and putting back together,so hopefully london to brighton next year to be running once all the other things are done as well
    il post pictures and progress of build as i go along.but until then you shall have to handle me in klaus.

    lucky has been in a ton of pieces as i was saving up on funds but this week hopefully things will start to change about,engine is pretty much paid for and almost ready to be shipped out so hopefully within the next few weeeks,and all my carbon stuff hould be arriving this week with a bit of luck then the shell can be prepped and painted.and hopefully th ball will be moving with the putting back together Very Happy
