    Of course there are, they make a lot of power from a small compact shape and are unit constructed with an integrated clutch and gearbox

    Being lightweight and designed with modest torque output they ideally suit installation in a very small and light vehicle.....


    like a motorbike for example.



    Stop pissing about with that buggy. put the engine in a decent chassis.

    Having watched a bike engined go-cart run 12 second quarters, why not do that, then annihilate a certain red truck at the pod.......

    Lol, a 1998 106 120hp gti is all I need for that.

    Shame they are all gone.

    Use the bit that's already on there - typically a simple bell crank with a spherical bearing/rose joint?

    Depends - you normally get a gear lever with a spherical bearing attached and that's it, don't be giving stuff away that you need. Can you google for the rearsets to get a picture?

    a day of messing about with drills n stuff... stage 1 - 50x50 box - mitered into a few sizes (30 degree cut and also 45 degree cut) depending on position. I'm going to use the longer ones at the front where i have removed more steel underneath to save double weight.... or something... stage 2 - box linished to a nice profile then drilled 10.5. stage 3 - 25mm bar, cut to 44-45mm length, linished to size, then drilled to 10.5m10 10.9 bolts to finish. Mounts with next stage - bracing for subframe and engine end - 5mm plate, welded onto the end of 32mm tube, again 10.5 hole for bolts. Subframe progressing. bracing next T45 for the new rear end No going back now!! rear end has been detached Spent a while messing about notching the tubes... exact length TBC Think this time i'm going add bracing. never really liked how it was originally, in my structural engineering mind... will I hit the tyres though....? Also need to consider the seat belt brace too. Air box might be in the way Trial position Mor T45.... Going to make a kind of triangulated tube thing to hold in the motor More soon

    So you haven’t decided to take it apart again, for the sheer hell of it.
