Hi all, I'm new to MK's and also bike engined kit cars. I have owned a Formula 27 with a 155bhp pinto engine, a Westfield with a 2.0ltr red top 190bhp engine and currently am in possession of a Lotus Elise 135R which I want to sell. I have owned it for 4 years and has been a great car both on and off track. I use it about 75% on track and the rest on the road so essentially it is an expensive toy sat in the garage at the moment. I'm looking at buying an Indy R with a bike engine. I want a car that I can trailer to the track but still use in the road, I want to give a bike engine a go as I've never owned one and I like to fettle and tinker. The build quality of the MK looks to be very good for the money and the vast selection of engine compatibility is appealing. Be good to get some feedback and suggestions on the best route to buy. I fancy getting hold of a completed car for fairly modest money and running with it for a year to see what changes I'd like to make. Cheers Chris

Hi welcome to the club yes MK build quality as always been good mine is a 2002 with Fireblade the one that's on here with me in it black with red helmet. Had you thought of finding a cec and running that then putting a bike engine in.

Hi Andy, thanks for the reply. Yes, my options are all open. I guess I wanted to try a bike engined car to see if I like it and then if not, I could put a car engine in. I know what car engine kit cars go like so if I went from a car engine to a bike engine then back to a car engine it seems a bit of faff. I woiuld however have a bigger selection of vehicles to choose from on the market though. Hmmm.
