    I'm very tempted to make the rear into a trailer the same colour as the track car.

    Only a couple of months ago I was thinking about building a twin engined T5 (T10) one front one rear. The quick easy(?) way would be to fit the complete engine and subframe with struts etc.

    I hope you do it to save me doing it. More hassle than I could really be bothered with. Watching with interest

    It will weigh a bit more, but it will have twice the power, I'm liking the look of that tube chasis
