I’ve featured a few Escorts over the years, along with one other Zakspeed inspired MKII, but none of them were converted to AWD! The car uses a Ford Sierra front and rear clip welded onto the Escort’s center section to allow the AWD drivetrain to bolt up. The thread takes a retrospective view of the car’s different combinations over the years before getting to the oily bits of it’s latest rebuild in the famous Zakspeed livery. Sadly the thread has died off a couple of years ago and ends in a negative light, here’s hoping it somehow starts up again in the future.
It’s time to kick off 2016 with a new build! The HondaNSX is a bucket-list car for many people, whether you’re a Honda fanboy, a lover of 90’s JDM, or maybe you have a case of the feels from the original Need for Speed game. This one takes quite the transformation, starting off as a stock automatic it quickly gets torn down and receives a track-ready overhaul. Huge brakes, wide-body, carbon panels, flat floor, air jacks, intricate roll cage with floor bars, bespoke centre exit exhaust, and plenty more. Towards the end of the thread we learn that aÂ HPD LeMans-style engine looks to be in the car’s future, with a couple of turbos to really get things moving, I can’t wait to see how that turns out!
It’s like someone went and made a channel specifically for us! So far the series has videos detailing how to make a time attack roll cage and a tube frame front end, amongst other various fabrication topics. The complete Part 1 instalment of the tube frame front end video looks to be a paid video, but at over 2 hours long and less than a couple of bucks it sure does appear to be great value for money.
You know the drill, what starts off as a quick bit of rust repair turns into a full bare-shell rotisserie build. Not that we’re complaining, right?! This little Pug receives a lot of love from it’s owner, and his welder. Roll cage, suspension, machining, bike carbs, wiring; this build has it all. Most importantly, it just recently came back to life after a 2-year hiatus, so let’s hope the updates will be arriving thick and fast from now on.
