Not to rain on your parade but i have yet to see a kraftwerks car get anywhere close to any kind of power band i would pay money for. Would post this over on miata.net or club roadster as they are the ones that buy status not speed.

I like your enthusiasm.
If you can deliver bottom prices on quality parts like you say you can, you'll do well here.

Have you looked into turbo kits or intercooler kits? Piecing together a quality intercooler kit using ebay piping and core but "fabbing it up" yourself would probably sell pretty well if you price it under begi and fm's kits that start at 400

I need a clutch and flywheel. I want perfect streetability, at least 400 ft lbs static holding load, under 20lbs total clutch/ flywheel mass, infinite rebuildability, and I want to spend under $300. What can you do for me?

Most everyone that slams the rotrex hasn't driven one. That aside, the base kit is expensive for the power level, and the failure of Kraftwerks to provide the promised upgrade path for the expensive base kit hasn't helped any. Were I a vendor I'd stay away from reselling Kraftwerks stuff at the moment as they seem to be imploding.

I built my motor with Rotrex in mind, (10:1 CR). I liked the simple, trackable reliability. I know I'm in the minority here, but I'd like a sale on a race kit.

With that said. I'll second the I/C idea.

I think the main issue people have is that they don't enjoy making full boost by redline. It would turn me off too. I have driven a few centrifugal cars before, but the last two were procharged corvettes and that's a different world.

We usually use the reflective metal absorbing covers. We will look into it.
