IN THE APRIL ISSUE
DJ Sportscars’ latest Dax Tojeiro demonstrator is a bit of
a monster. It’s powered by an 8.2-litre Chevrolet V8, covers
the 0-60mph sprint in a claimed sub-4 seconds and can exceed 180mph!
What’s more, it’s the first demo to feature the company’s
De Dion rear suspension and unique camber compensation system at
the front. It might be Cobra shaped, but it’s all-new beneath
Peter Filby visited Raw UK recently to see how the business of making
Strikers is undertaken since Sylva Autokits sold the project to
Mel Coppock’s Herefordshire-based firm. Naturally, he also
sampled one of the chargers on the road.
Bulldog Specialist Vehicles imports German Boom Trikes kits and
is on a mission to educate the UK public that not all trikes are
back-yard lash-ups. In fact, as Adam Wilkins found out, the quality
of these Volkswagen Beetle-powered three-wheelers is up there with
the very best conventional kit cars. Read more in our latest issue.
OUR MARLIN 5EXi DRIVEN
Ian Stent drives our own Marlin 5EXi, along with two factory built
examples. See how John Watson’s build, powered by a 1.8-litre
Rover K-series VVC engine, compares with factory cars powered by
standard 1.6- and 1.8-litre units. It’s a fascinating comparison.
AND THERE'S MORE...
