    A peak into a CatKong like build at a track!

    The closing speed is crazy on the other vehicles.

    And then the 2.5 liter variant.

    This is super-interesting, Mike. I am harbouring some similar thoughts but whereas your build is intended to be an ultimate track car, I'm thinking about making the best road-car that I can - so similar approach but with different specs and priorities at component level.

    You mentioned that CC supplied the car as a glider but in the pictures of the car being built in the factory it seems to have a Sadev fitted and, I presume, at least a block in place as the primaries seem to be fixed to something and pointing in the right direction! Can you shed some light as to the extent that CC were able (happy?) to supply without the driveline mechanicals in place?

    Croc - Make sure you use a billet or forged crank in the 2.5L Duratec
