Product description

If you aspire to build a racing car this could be the book that you've been waiting for!
Tony Pashley revisits the path he took in the Pashley Project articles in Race Tech magazine during the design and construction of two successful hillclimb cars.
Although hillclimb and sprint cars are the focal topic, a lot of the book is applicable to race cars in general. The cars in the book are powered by motorcycle engines that, in the smaller racing car classes, are meeting with great success.
The total process of building a car is described, beginning with the selection and procurement of the engine. Chassis and suspension design is covered in a simplistic, but adequate manner as the author's aim is to minimise the inclusion of involved calculations.
Two recipes for chassis construction are illustrated in detail, along with guidance on the processes of construction and a description of the required equipment. Following on from this the fabrication of the suspension is explained.
Further chapters are dedicated to the remaining aspects of the vehicle covering; transmission, brakes, fuel and coolant systems and electrics.
The book is illustrated with 200 photographs and extensive explanatory diagrams and tables.
