Has anyone here built a seven on Jack's (Kinetic vehicles) Max/Lola. I like the shape of this car which with a few touches could make an amazing project!!!!! :cheers:

I started with this book.
Used miata suspension and differential with the saturn UK modification.
Jack widened the lola bonnet 2or4 inches & I widened it 4or6 more.
Jack called it a 5/4 scale Lola

Thanks for the picture.

This is truly a remarkable car and I gather the kit body is quite affordable. I contemplated building one for a while and then I realized that my donor a 1965 Chevy Corvair IRS is too wide for it, I will stick to my idea to build a second seven :cheers:

Between the two rear fenders is aluminum you supply.The hood is split down the middle so you can make it as wide as you want. The only problem I see with the Corvair is you might have too much hanging out the back.

Apologies for the thread drift but where did you get that windshield? Is it laminated? What's it from? Any quick dimensions/add'l pics (feel free to PM instead)?

Thanks in advance,
Chris

Go to Exterior on the board index
go to Lalo -- a lola mk1 inspired body. Page 30 31 32
Or come over and give it a test drive
