  1. Well the little Megapin has been completely rewired and ready to move onto the rollers for the ecu to be calibrated. Just as the power was being brought up, the clutch started slipping, don't you just love cars. I'll be collecting it this week to bring it back to do the clutch and at the same time I'll fit the Roll bar etc pic attached, and also fabricate some mountings for a new rear wing.
  2. Hi Gary, Sorry, it's going to Andy and sitting in a box waiting collection by courier. Rob
  3. I'll take some pics later and update on version if that's ok Regards Rob

    E48 DTA ecu

    Does anyone have a DTA E48 ecu, in good working order that is for sale.
  6. Small update on the Megapin rebuild. Well the wiring was so bad, it has been binned and now completely rewired. The dash is so small that only oil pressure, water temperature and shift lights can be fitted plus the neutral and ignition lights. With no rev counter, a noise test light has been fitted that illuminates when the pre determined revs are reached, also a Cartek solid state kill switch. The ROPs has still not been changed as the first set of drawings were "lost" by the tube bender! Second set have been sent ,so all should be well. Next job is to split the wheels and fit new rims plus some soft tyres and find a suitable seat and make a Kevlar panel to cover the chassis frame under which the chain is. Progress is slow and now the grass is growing and outside things need painting.

    XI seen for sale

    A buyer might struggle to fit a roll bar like I have, on an eleven with the fairing but, the one on the car would not meet the current requirements and would also need other safety features as well, if, as the ad suggest, it could be used for hill climbs. But being already registered, alas with a Q plate, would save the hassle of going through the process and as Simon says, the BMW engine, provided it is the right one, would be and interesting prospect

    Building my Eleven

    Morris, I just thought I would add that I looked at the clearance under the chassis tubes and the bottom of the sump is below the bottom of the chassis tube by 1/4". The sump, (wet) is what came with Mr T's engine and is 5" from under the block to the bottom of the sump. Looks to be a modified crossflow sump, 1600cc type for crank throw clearance. Once I offer up the bonnet I will be able to see what clearance there is but, the only item I can see that may pose a problem is the thermostat housing, so may have to mod that a bit. Out of interest, the dry sump pan I have measures 5" as well, so no benefit to be had size wise, but lubrication we will have to see.

    Building my Eleven

    Eventually managed to get some time to trial fit the crossflow engine prior to making the engine mounts. At the moment it is on the engine crane with some wood blocks under until I get the bonnet clearance set.
  10. Regarding your question about fitting into the car, I am 6ft and, not slim, 15stone. The fit is fine for height and feel like you are sitting in the car, any taller would be a problem. Being built for comfort (me), makes it s bit tight width wise but perfectly fine for driving. As you have probably noticed from the build threads, I used a Zetec engine which made 183bhp, this was mated to a 4speed dog box and 4.5 ratio rear axle with 3J driveline half shaft and LSD. with this level of performance, the car was let down by using the Midget brakes, so were changed to the 4 pot KAD callipers. At the moment I am changing to a 1700 Crossflow which I bought from a member on here and is having some performance changes carried out which I hope will make about 170hp. My car has no carpets etc, but does have the ROPs and a fire extinguisher system but I can't remember what it weighs, but is quite nippy and even with the reduce hp of the Crossflow would expect it to be of similar performance compared to the Zetec, as the Crossflow is a bit lighter. When I put the Zetec in, I knew I'd have to cut the bonnet, which caused me a bit of hard thinking but with the crossflow and probably a dry sump, It will allow an un butchered bonnet to be used. It will also allow me to enter a non post historic class in the French hill climbs I do. So having said all that, I don't think you would regret acquiring an Eleven but for normal road use, you would probably want a 5 speed box and careful choice of springs and dampers. I hope my ramblings will be of use.
  11. Bonjour Eric, Pourquoi ne pas venir au course de cote Etretat/Benouville en Aout et prifiter de l'evenement et un cafe Rob
  12. This image shows the slightly unusual chassis design/layout, which I guess makes the weight distribution nearly 50/50. I thought the Eleven was small but this is even smaller.
  13. It is a gsxr1100, water cooled. Not sure about the WP bit, as I'm more used to zx10r engines but assume that may refer to it being water cooled. The car is supposed to weigh in at 340kgs in two wheel drive format. It has been sat for a while so will need some fettling but am sure it will be interesting to drive.
  14. There's a clue in the first post... Ian Scott. Pin seems to be the common thread, Terrapin, Megapin. I think they collaborated
