Dutton Kit Cars and their owners

For those days when your parts just can't arrive quick enough, for sunny days when the transit just isn't 'fun'...

Project X...

Coming soon to a shed near me.

1997 DOHC, weber TC, MT75 box and Sierra fixed 3.72 diff in a Phaeton 3/4 hybrid.

I did some playing on gear calc and the theoretical stats look like this.

Gear   Mph per 1000 RPM  Mph @4000 RPM Mph @6000 RPM
1 4.91 20 29
2 9.17 37 55
3 14.24 57 85
4 19.08 76 114
5 23.27 93 (buttock clench) 140 (new pants)

Just found out I can get four point harnesses, fixed and inertia reel seat belts - in different colours too.

Is that the 8 valve or 16 valve unit? 1997 would suggest that it'll be the 16 valve but I thought that they were transverse. I assume that it doesn't have a catalytic converter. I don't think that you'll need to worry about 140 mph, if it's a Phaeton then you are unlikely to get more than 114 out of it, but I think you'll find that that is fast enough to warrant the change of underwear.

I think the original shafts were push fit but unfortunately the replacement diff is bolt on so some engineering will be required.

As it starts to come together pictures will be posted.

Got a white Leggy to finish first.

Very interested in the set up of the rear end. Is it bolt on or input shaft type Sierra diff?
Sounds like a pretty fast delivery car :)
