'Sold as a complete kit less engine gearbox wheels and tyres'
The text is straight off the web site, but is it bad english, or really, does it come without an Engine, without a gear box and without wheels and tyres, rr, does it come without the gear box and without wheels and tyres?
I'm a bit confused? What is the point in selling a complete kit without the engine and gear box?

They all look like alot of fun. But maybe a Honda engine is the way to go?
They all have sequential boxes as well :cool:
I also think this chasis style looks much better than the caterham 7.

What I like about the Xtr2 is it looks like a mini Le Mans sports racer

I suggest you go to one of these conventions as there were all sorts of exhibitors with some of the strangest looking machines I've ever seen. There seems to be a lot of knowledge to be gained from these days if your interested in starting down the track of "kit car world".
I couldn't believe how many different types of cars there were. Looks like the main kits are Robin Hoods, Westfields, Tigers and the newer ones that look like that lovely Radical/XTR2 that has just eaten the Nurburgring for breakfast.
Do it, you know it makes sense ; )
I will one day when I get the time!
