Alternative nose cone on an MK

I would really like to change the nosecone on my indy to something a bit more 'aggressive'

Does anyone know if any other bands nose's will fit on the MK chassis without too much fabrication?

I like the styling of the MNR Vortex and the Mac1 & GBS Zero both have a nice lip extension on the bottom

MNR probably wont sell you one, from speaking to them about that type of thing before they are very protective about who they sell things like that to so people canít do what you intend to do.

I imagine though that most modern sevens nosecones would fit fairly easily.

Yeah I wondered about that myself. Most manufacturers sell parts directly from Their Site except MNR. I had a similar issue buying bmw m3 CSL parts a few
Years back, Iím sure all Iíll need is to quote a chassis number or similar to order bits

You're probably better off modifying the MK one?

Here you go,

http://www.haselier.nl

I had one given to me by Haselier on a visit to Mk a few years ago, I never fitted it, but sold it on, but they still supply them I believe .

was only the other day thinking about this myself after seeing a post on facebook with a car that had one of the Haselier nosecones fitted.

Is it just me, but I think the MNR nose cone looks a bit too Flash Gordon in my view!

Much prefer the MK nose cone - stick some mesh in it or a front diffuser/lip and it'll look great :-)





Sigs are uncool.

Ah right.

Fingers crossed it lines up for you.

How's the height where it meets the bonnet?
