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_striker_kit_

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.

Go Kit Car Racing

race your kit carFancy Your Chances At Kit Car Racing?

Where to start? It’s a lot easier than you might think to get involved. Though motor racing can never be truly cheap, racing at club level is the backbone of the sport in this country and need not be prohibitively expensive.

It is still possible to race competitively in a car, which you have driven to the circuit. 

1. Get a Race Licence, issued by the Motor Sports Association (MSA).
2. Join the appropriate Motor Club.
3. Register for a championship or race series.

1. Getting a Race Licence:

race bike powered kit carApply to the MSA for a “Go Racing Pack ”; this will include a Race Licence Application Form, a simple Medical Form to be completed by your GP and a useful DVD/video outlining some of the things you will come across in your ARDS course.

What’s an ARDS Course? The Association of Racing Driving Schools, which are situated at most of the race circuits in the UK, run one-day courses which include theory tests of your basic knowledge of motor sport (flag signals etc) and a practical ‘test’ of your ability to drive safely around a circuit. On the assumption that you pass your ARDS course and your GP (or another Doctor) is happy with your physical condition, you can then apply to the MSA for your National B Race Licence. When you get your licence, you will also get a copy of the (commonly called the Blue Book). This contains all the General Regulations of the MSA some of which, like section [C (c)] – Safety, is essential reading; other bits will send you to sleep at night!

Join a Motor Club:

The 750 motor club hold a number of kit car racing championships and are a well established club offering , but by no means the only one offering kit car racing.
Download a 750 Motor Club membership form > Download here
Or search for other clubs here on the MSA site.

Register for a Championship/Race Series:

Choose a race series:
750 Motor Club race series – Click here to view /Download the regulations and registration form.

Costs (Approx.) :

race kit carsMSA ‘Go Racing’ Pack £55
ARDS Course (2008 rate) £275
MSA National B Licence £51
750 Motor Club Membership £50
Championship Registration £75

Other Considerations:

You will have to have the correct safety clothing (overalls, gloves, helmet); bear in mind that the standards for these are reviewed each year. It’s probably advisable to wait until you have your copy of the current ‘Blue Book’ before committing to the expense; it also ensures that you are not sold something which is not eligible in car racing – helmets are a prime example.

Oh, and I suppose you’ll need to have a race car as well!

A couple of race series For Your Consideration.

Body shells are not all that is different about these two cars…

The Two demo cars really show what a difference we can achieve from the same Raw base chassis, the Striker being completely entry level is lovely to drive anywhere, smooth and comfortable, but can be driven to very surprising cornering and acceleration levels. This Phoenix boasting a very different suspension setup and many bells and whistles including the supercharger is a different animal, hammering you into the back of your seat as you charge through the flat shift gearbox up to warp speed and cornering on rails!
