Got myself an MEV Rocket, basically a cheap Atom knock off. It's pretty good fun and seems to go down well at meets. 100% planning to get on track this year.

Spec is : ST170 engine with MP62 SC, 6 speed box with quaife LSD, willwood brakes, not much else.

Corner weighted and suspension set up by my mate Andy at Automek, came in at 625kgs without driver. Full boost is 297bhp.

Have a set of 15" cxr's with r888s to fit once i make some clearance under the cycle wings.

Anyways, here's some pictures.











Cheers,
Olie

A bike engined one Adam? Any ideas who owns it?

That's a fair shout Andy. I've never actually been in the gravel but we'll see how it goes Very Happy

MEV have a kit car that is the home for many rusty MX5, but I think it looks a bit naff tbh especially compared to this Rocket. This looks great.
