Pulse GT1

been asked by a couple of lads for some more info -
not really 'locost' but here we go !!
car was built to race in the british GT series mid '90's against mclaren f1, porsches etc, was tested at silverstone with jag XJ220 engine pushing 860 BHP. 2 weeks before the first race the rules 'changed' so was never raced, fot parked up, the back end chopped off to make the suspension off the gearbox but never finished.
i bought the project october '08 as a pile of bits, but came with all the moulds.




first job was to rebuild the rear end & refit the front











I'd rather be scared to death, than bored to death !

next question was what to power it with ?!?!
looked for 6 months for an audi rs6 engine with no joy so dropped on an audi rs4 2.7 twin turbo engine. i had fitted to this had low compression head gaskets, ported head, uprated injectors, all the timing gear done, inconel tubular manifolds onto rebuilt rs6 turbo's running s3 compressor wheels, custom flywheel with triple plate clutch. then it's all bolted to an Elite TLX300 6 speed sequential dog box

You can do it quickly. You can do it cheap. You can do it right. Pick any two.

As you have the moulds for the panels, why not make a jig for the chassis. I would be interested. Finished mine looking what to do next.

you never know, maybe in the future i could start to make them, but it would never be a cheap car to build so you would have limited customers i would think, then again ultima don't seam to struggle & they are miserable sh*ts LOL
to build a proper jig would cost a few thousand - and thats the only way i would build it - not near enough i'll do !!

Looks like a proper project! Im assuming there was some aerodynamic work done when the original design was prepared?

I take it to original car used the gearbox to mount the suspension to? But your engine and box in the current iteration are no longer stressed members?

Some really nice quality work gone into that and an unusual but very good choice of engine!

Keep us all up to date

originally chassis was as we have done it, then back end was removed to use gearbox as a stressed member, but we have gone back to full chassis - thought it would be better for road use
