2011 Kit Car & Replica Z-Cars Minibusa


This is a kit I got from England from Z-Cars. I only got what wasn’t available in America like the frame, body, and suspension. Everything else I bought or built here my self. The frame is 4130 designed to be a road race mid engine, rear wheel drive, based on the fiberglass GT Mini Cooper body. For power I am running a tubro charged Suzuki GSX 1300 Hayabusa. Right now I’m only running 6 lbs of boost, this allows me to run pump gas, dynoed at 250 hp. I’m also using a “Pingle” shifter so no clutch, full throttle shifts at 12,000 rpm with just the push of a button. Wet weight is 1140 lbs, 0 to 60 in 2.6 seconds and over 2 “G”s of cornering force. While being designed for the track the car is very docil and street-able. Just stay away from speed bumps. I love doing track days and have done several at Oregon Raceway Park, (my home track), Portland International, and Thunderhill. This summer I plan to do Sears Point, Luguna Seca, Chuckwalla, and hopefully SIR and The Ridge in WA.
