Entry Level Cars

Whether you choose the Striker, Phoenix or Fulcrum you are assured at entry level of a very exciting drive. Not only is the handling of Raw cars second to none, but the light weight construction makes them capable of accelerating very quickly, for example:

Saemus Ryan's strikerBase kits and cars are generally fitted with 150BHP engines.

This produces a power to weight ratio of around 250+ BHP Per Ton.

With a 0 – 60 MPH time of around 4.5 Seconds

Upgrade Packs Can Be Applied…

Engine options are available in increments to suit budget and needs.
While the base kit develops around 150BHP, the engines can be upgraded to:

Striker TR wins

170 – 200BHP can be achieved using a multi throttle body inlet setup giving instant engine response and an increased power band.

220BHP can be achieved with a supercharger unit. This gives a very smooth power delivery and high torque output.

Up to 330 BHP can be achieved with factory engines, which makes for 550 BHP per Ton. We like to think this is enough for anyone and in the right hands will keep up with almost anything on the road and track.


Striker keeps a noble at bay

170BHP Striker and a Noble were fairly evenly matched at Pembrey – Spring 2011

raw offer OMEX controlled Ford Zetec Engines

Zetec Supercharger Package

Raw supercharged zetec for all kit carsSupercharged 220+ BHP Engines & Bolt On Zetec Supercharger Package kits;

For those hungry for more power in Raw or other kit cars, we are now offering our new upgraded supercharged 2.0L Zetec developing 220 bhp from a standard bolt on package. With modified internals and  the supercharger setup another hundred horse power is possible. This system developed in conjunction with OMEX is producing blistering performance through a linear power curve that makes power delivery very manageable. Available as an engine package, or as a bolt on supercharger kit, just remap and go!

powerful kit car engines from RawRaw’s new kit car engines can produce big power to weight ratios making for plenty of pickup to match the Raw chassis handling capabilities, without being so heavy as to effect your cornering.  This makes for a car setup capable of letting you to propel yourself past super-cars on track and stay ahead !

We have also added the option of combining the new flagship engines with a Sadev sequential gearbox available through Raw Striker Ltd. and offering flat-shift and gear changes in 0.04 seconds for practically seamless acceleration from 0-max. velocity. Sadev systems have been tried and tested for years in Rally cars and are a proven power delivery method we are very excited about, although they are not ideal budget projects!

Superchargers are also available for the 20v Toyota 4A-GE silver top engines.

Contact us for full details about our engines, (which are not limited to kit car installation).



Track days in a Raw Striker come for a test drive

Cameras can help you improve - study your driving between track days.

Track Day Test Drives

Contact us about a Test drive or a track day place.


As Complete Kit Car point out it is difficult to “safely extend” your kit car on public roads and therefore not easy to improve your driving skills without visiting circuits to enjoy the freedom they offer drivers.


Track days provide the opportunity to test the limits of your car and your own abilities as a driver can moved onward and upward. It is safe to say that most kit

car owners relish the chance to do just this in a safe environment.

Raw attended days offers a great opportunity to join other similar vehicles on a friendly low key track day.

Forze Hydrogen car; based on the Striker chassis

The Forze Hydrogen Car is Taking Shape

Forze have developed a number off smaller vehicles , but now after five years of development the team made a big step forward due to a significant increase in performance and size in the NEW Forze Hydrogen car.

The new car is based on the Raw’s Striker chassis and will have pretty serious performance figures as can be seen below.

 “With the car we can shock and revolutionize the race world” says Michel Haak, team manager of Forze. Since last summer (2012) the team worked on the new Forze Hydrogen car and many hours of engineering time have been invested in this final design, which will be built during this spring based on the acclaimed Raw Striker underpinnings.

In the coming summer the Forze Hydrogen car will race on circuits in the Benelux against petrol powered cars in the Caterham Cup. Besides that, the team will also race on the Nürburgring Nordschleife. The Green Car will try to break the lap record for hydrogen powered vehicles.


Currently the calculated performance statistics for the Forze Hydrogen powered race car look like they will be as follows:

Acceleration: 0-100 km/hour   <4 seconds 

Top Speed: 220KM/hour

Power: 100kW nominal / 200kW peak

Weight: 800kg

The Forze Hydrogen car shell will be as depicted below and incorporates aerodynamic design put together with digital modelling for best performance.

There are many components to accommodate in a Hydrogen car not associated with a standard power train which means no passenger seat.
