The car has been tuned and has is running 94.6bhp dyno proven on the red Dot Rolling road.
It made 100bhp and the boost was reduced to 19 psi (1.3bar) for longevity and to give a smoother power delivery.
It has been looked after by Sasha, Rob and Dave at Smartarse Design.
On the 24/04/07 the car was documented for a feature in Performance Tuner Magazine (http://www.performancetuner.co.uk/).
The feature was on small modified cars – the other cars in the article were
130 bhp Suzuki Ignis Sport 1.5 tuned
134 bhp Mini One 1.6 tuned
100bhp Fiat Panda – new
Ford Ka tuned – bhp unknown
My car pulled well and posted the fastest 30-50 time in 3rd gear and the 3rd fastest time in the 50-70mph test in 4th.
Don’t ask about the 0-60 time……… Doh!
You will have to buy the mag and read the article for more info _ out next month. Read the previous owners write up here – just click on the link http://www.smartarsedesign.com/
his is not bike engined(there are some gsx1000 ones see Smartuki on google and you tube)
Consider this from a single overhead cam, 2 valve engine
This car give 160bhp per litre and if it were 5.7 litres (350 cu inch) would be 897bhp and 817ft/lb of torque. Not too shabby?
And yes, I feel safe!
