Firstly why "Insanity Too"?
It's a little obvious really,
- It's my second car, (number 2)
- I am still questioning if building this or any race car is equally insane as buying the first car, especially as the costs build up, even for a relatively low cost build like this!
- It continues the theam of the team name.
This car is based on a shortened Discovery 1 chassis and running gear with the engine and gear box moved backwards in the chassis.
I had decided to go down this route as I had a very good chassis from a scrap car I purchased for spares, it meant I could easily recover a lot of parts from the first car and it meant I would be using many standard Land Rover parts that are relatively cheap and easy to source.
The roll-over protection and body panels are supplied by Tornado motor sport.
When we started the car was running a relatively standard Rover V8 3.9 engine using the standard Hot-wire fuel injection. the transmission consisted of standard four speed auto out of the Discovery and transfer-box from a Land Rover (lower ratios for better acceleration etc.)
