Lightened flywheel

Lotusbits lightened flywheel - as tested on our rally car, all non-turbo engines £350 + VAT

Sneak preview of Lotusbits Sunbeam rally car

Just about to go off to the paint shop:

B20 RWD Nissan Micra – RWD rally car

A message from Mike Taylor, MD Lotusbits Ltd:

"From 2012 this car (B20 RWD Nissan Micra RWD) will not be able to compete as up till now it has run under a K37.1.3 logbook which cannot be used after 1/1/2012.

When the car was inspected by the MSA with the intention of re-logbooking to the new CAT 2 regulations, the modifications required to make the car comply with the drawings in the cat 2 guidance notes were very extensive. The tunnel and part of bulkhead need to be replaced. The rear cross-member needs to be lowered by 35mm with respect to the lowest point of the floor. As the roll cage mounts to this the cage would have to be modified.  

The cost of doing this makes it not economically viable to keep the car running especially as the car would have to be ballasted up to 1080 Kg which would make it slower.

Annoyingly all the modifications required except in date seats are not in any way safety or performance related – they are just to make the car fit within the drawings...

We are already working on a 2.5L Talbot Sunbeam Lotus to replace the Micra which complies with the lower pre 1982 weight limit of 880 Kg as well as all of the CAT 2 drawings.

Our intention was to run both the New Lotusbits Sunbeam and the Micra next year to allow my partner and Co-Driver, Cathy, to be able to drive next year without having to invest too much in a car for her. Unfortunately this is now not possible so another new rally crew has been lost.

If anyone would be interested in purchasing the Micra for anything other than rallying use please contact  us on 01926 633211"
