I rather like the idea of a bike engine in a small car.

Nick W will tell you that bike engines don't produce enough power or torque.......although I'm pretty sure a 1340cc 4 cylinder Hayabusa lump produces more power and torque than a twin cylinder 499cc Fiat engine from 1957. ::) ::) ;)




It's not just the amount, but where the power and torque are produced. A 1.0l engine that makes 100hp by revving to 12,000rpm with not much except noise under 4000 and drives a 24" diameter tyre through a six speed gearbox attached to a 200kg vehicle is not necessarily suited to a car that weighs 4 times that. 6 times if it's a modern car ::)

Where in the rev range does a Hayabusa produce less power and torque than a Fiat 500?

Yeah..yeah...I know. Not exactly a fair comparison. ::) ::) :D


Don't get me wrong, a bike engine in the right car(like a basic Caterham) is a laugh. For as long as the owner lets you borrow it :y


Have you ever tried something like a 1.7 Puma? That's a high revving, short geared, small car that's fun until you turn off the country road and makes you wish you'd bought a 'normal' car.

Four new Yokohamas on the Range Rover earlier in the year 20 inch wheels 620 didn't think that was too bad.

if you did sit in the car then the M25 protesters could block your road for you to highlight your plight  :)
then you could have your house wrapped in polystyrene and render , ruining the look  ::)
Couldn't my house be wrapped in M25 protestors?
possibly , if you nailed them on well  :D

Yes of course, but I expect they'd quickly get on your tits!  ;D

No, not bound by your existing deal, but any credit you have will be honoured.
I have a two year fix with OctopusEnergy, 18 months to run.

We are also with Octopussy.

Must check out what we are paying/going to pay.
Why? What does it matter? You'll pay what you pay and you probably won't find cheaper elsewhere. If you were worried about fuel prices you wouldn't be hooning around in a 2.8T.

Is it possible to hoon around in a Signum?  :-\                                                                            ;D
As long as it's in a straight line  ;D
