Cool. Just what I have had an idea of doing for a while, but ground up using the locost/Haynes roadster book, and was always unsure of power plant, but now know if I'm gunna do it, I'm gunna use as much rx8 as i can.

Id take a look at the mev exocet...it using the front and rear subframes and the ppf from a mx5 and the exo skelton fits over the top...
If i was gonna do again id try and use the rx8 subframes and ppf...then youd get all the rx8 goodness without the weight.

Is all good so far!! A real interesting read seeing you fix all the mistakes from the previous owner, and making changes to make it a better race car! Cant wait for my day tomorrow when the wife and the kids go out for a whole day, dont think im gunna move very far. Its cool knowing you aint that far from me either

Post this up in 'RX-8 Discussion' as a new topic as well, you will have more people see it there. You could put it in the 'Buying' section too.
