Hillclimb / Sprint Glanza build

49 posts in this topic

Thought I would start a progress thread on my latest project which I've been at a year already

Which has snowballed a lot from the beginning.  Basically trying to build a competitive hillclimb sprint car to compete in the road car class Up to 2 litre (which the starlet ends up in with the turbo multiplier factor).

My objective is to build as light and as little lag as possible car no crazy overall hp goals. So as close to 800kg and around 220-230bhp is what I need to beat the main competitors with clio 182's

Spec so far is

Fully refreshed standard engine

Ct9/ct12 hybrid with billet compressor

Wepr stainless top mount manifold

With tial external wastegate

Custom lightweight alternator/water pump delete (electric waterpump)

Custom frontmount intercooler

Civic rad

Quaife lsd box

Lightened flywheel / paddle clutch

Custom brakes front and rear 

Team dynamic 15" front wheel 13" rear (for weight)

Shell painted in Nissan skyline kh2 grey

Safetydevices rear cage

Motodrive bucketseats

Did you use ct12 or ct12b to hybrid 

I'm sure it was a ct12b I then got Midland turbos to refresh it weld up internal wastegate and fit billet compressor wheel

This is the 3rd reincarnation of this build , to cut along story short . I stared building an ep82 into a hillclimb car then decided they were getting rare and harder to source parts (as I like a barrier or 2). So bought a black ep91 which came with a quaife lsd box , paddle clutch and lightened flywheel along with bc coilovers. I stripped the shell bare to prep it as I'm fussy which is when this latest shell came up all fully painted at a price I couldn't resist ! Needless to say I have a few spares !!!!

Engine currently looks like this waiting for its new home

Then this is some pics of the first car I started prepping

Then how the current shell looks waiting for it's rear cage to be fitted , which is partly mocked up

The last 4/5 nights have been busy thinning out the original wiring loom to the bare essentials.  Which has meant removal of all abs , airbag , electric mirrors , radio , reverse lights , rear wiper wiring ect. The multiplugs have all been unpinned as I couldn't live with pins being unused lol. This is all in aid of trying to keep the car as light as possible within our rules.  My Target of 800kg should be doable ! I hope

I think 800 is very achievable. Although the GT's are lighter, with the Air Con Removed, half rad, any extra seats any unnecessary interior, you'd pretty much be there.

Cheers I hope so

Unfortunately I have to keep all seats door cards and glass . The only thing inside I can lose is carpet . I have also added 30kg with the cage which doesn't help. But thankfully most of the competitors cars are over 900kg

Well while I finish the wiring I have stripped the interior , dash , heater ect out of new shell . To keep as I remove all sound deadining and weld in cage mounts. I will be swapping in my complete reduced wiring loom once this has been done and painted. Not much pics of recent progress so here is some of custom brakes I am using. All machine work is done by a friend and will be using kad mini rear calipers with pitbike rear discs. Front are original discs machined for weight and will have custom mounts for wilwood caliper. Should save 6kg from original front brake setup and closer to 10kg from rear setup

 

Rear hub which uses starlet bearings and fits original rear axle

I probably could , but not sure what price and wouldn't machine out holes between wheel studs until I have trailed them for a while .

Looking good would love to see pics of the rear set up fitted as we all no starlet rear disc brakes suck big time.

Cheers nick :thumbsup:

Cheers

I will upload more pics once I have progressed with them further. Could be a bit of trial and error unfortunately not a very cheap alternative but mega light :)

Finally got my safety devices rear cage fitted :crazy:

Wasn't the best fitting cage I've had which was disappointing to say the least. However I got there in the end , now time to strip rest of soundeadining and get floor painted

I understand what your saying time will tell , my theorie is the clamping force of sandwiching the disc between the hub and wheel face will add to the strength , well here is hoping :D

Lol the problem there is usually barriers between them hills :sad:
