    kit cars

    anyone here into kit cars?

    it was after looking at the shitty TT and Z3 i looked into what ones are out there

    the one which i have seen that i would love to get ahold of is the RS200

    this gets built around a meastro chasis and uses a meastro turbo engine to run it. it is rear wheel drive and the kit is made in the original press that was bought from ford

    i know it is a ford but it was one mean mother of a car

    Look at a pic of a real rs200 and then have another look at the pic above. Its just a fecking insult to such a legendery car. Besides why not make the kit to fit err a siera?? surley it makes more sence if they have all the original moulds????

    well that pic abouve is of the one which uses the original mould from ford so to say it looks bad is to say the original looked bad

    all the sizes are exactly the same and all the panels are the same. the only difference is the running gear underneath

    Arches are totally odd. but saying that if the chassis is maestro based, then presumably they would allow the fitting of the metro 6R4 gear, now that would give the kit respect.
