Beautiful build. Would you mind giving us some more information on how you did your reverse setup? Thanks!

Thanks for the comment, the reverse setup is a starter and ring gear from a Honda gx340 gas engine. I used it because its compact and I happened to have one kicking around. As you can see I mounted it in the tunnel where the steady bearing would be. I have a live axle so its about the only location that I could use. If you have IRS I would come up with one at the diff input. Its not very powerful but it backs me up out of the garage. I use a MC battery so that doesn't help with the power but honestly I rarely use it because the car pushes easier than my motorcycle. I hope it gives some food for thought.

Thanks for the reply. That looks great. How do you control it?

I control it with a key switch in the dash. Its tied in with the clutch switch and the neutral switch so it can only activate in neutral or in gear with the clutch in.

Beautiful car, love the diamond plate floor. The more I see BEC builds the more I want to build one.

Wow, very clean look. Where did you get those front signal lights? That's exactly what I'm looking for, same style as the caterham.

Wow, just wow. This is exactly why I am here and what I want to build. A different color scheme, but I want mine to be Top Shelf just like that.

Question, how does is go with the 929 motor? Enough to keep you smiling, or do you want more power?

This car is worthy of some video too! :wink:
