Here's some inspiration
A Bentley 3/8 special. It's an 8 litre engine in a 3 litre chassis. Love the proportions, love the pipes. The cockpit seats two but they've kept it narrow to look like a single seater. The passenger seat is about 8" behind the driver's seat to allow this. A chap who drank in the pub where I worked years ago (in Oxfordshire) used to race something very similar.
yes myles it has a slot in it ,and a very shallow taper ,so hopefully it will grip ,either that or squeal like a pig !!lol
re the picture , that looks good , apart from the mudguards . I think I may have to sit a bit further forward to miss the bell housing though.
heres a 3/8 I worked on a long time ago , I designed the induction and the exhaust after computer modelling it ,then designed a cam for it ., the cam took it from 325 bhp to 511 ,and 720 lbs ft. it set a lot of records ,doing 152 mph in the standing start 1 km sprint .(as far as I can remember) spent a few weeks building the engine with the car designer .happy days .
I really like its shape .

just a thought for the starter motor can you put a second flywheel in between the two engines and run it there it might help with balance and lower the stress on the connector when starting it
its definitely a thought bully ,thank you , I will have a look at that today .
no, the owners name was Andrew day, myles.
