Yeah I agree the crash video isn't nice, although it looks like he was starting to move, but I doubt either of them got away without painful injuries.

Interesting - I spent quite a bit of time up at Z-Cars looking at this. Very nice build!

Lot of money though - shame there's no nod to Z-Cars for being involved in the build.

I have to agree with the rolling start speed of even a tame Mini conversion.

Mine wasn't the best on fuel when it was new from Vauxhall, probably averaging about 30mpg on a run. Once it was run in the figures improved greatly, like BassAddict I'm now getting between 40 and...

I don't suppose anyone's got any pictures of a purple Clubby on 10's have they? There's a couple on TMF but just wondered if anyone else had got any?

Was a great weekend :D

Not sure if its the 1.6 8V or 2.0 8V that you're referring to, but I agree they're not the best looking engines compared to the 16V lumps. However, I put a bit of time and effort into making mine as...

I've looked into this too - from what I can remember the Z16SE is lower compression, therefore produces quite a bit less power and torque than the C16SE - something like 75bhp IIRC.

Indeed, the C16SE does, its 8V and even with the large inlet manifold it still fits quite nicely.
