Descripción del producto
Track & Race Cars magazine, October 2008UK magazineTRC RECOMMENDSThis book is aimed primarily at hill-climb and sprint car and helps to build one from a budget. It begins with choosing the right engine and works through to design and construction. There is an extensive amount of pictures and diagrams, which does help as there is a lot to read and it breaks up the text well. It describes the subjects that will affect this kind of build in good detail and would be very helpful for people looking into this area. British Racing News, December 2008The magazine of the British Racing & Sports Car ClubAstoundingly comprehensive, well-written - with nicely inserted humor - it might be a soft-back, but this book is well worth 25 smackers. Even if the last thing you want to do is build a 'bike-engined racer. If you thought the process was just welding a few tubes together and slotting a breaker's yard 'bike screamer and 'box in there, then think again - it is nothing of the sort. It is a major project, likely to daunt many, demanding determination to succeed and the most fastidious attention to detail.Pashley has those qualities, as proven in the past 20 years spent designing and building three 'bike-engined hill-climbers from scratch, at the time immersing himself in others' similar projects. And the complete, honest way he approached that is evidently how he approached writing this book: it shines from every page.Mrs Pashley, the book's unpaid proof reader, has done a great job. She also 'gets' hubby's subtle humor. Under 'C' in the alphabetic glossary of suspension, steering and chassis terms, we find; "C' word, compromise. A device for by-passing impasses met frequently during the design and construction processes, normally determined whilst [sic] engrossed on unconnected activities such as sleeping or drinking.'The reviewer is a qualified mechanical engineer with decades of motor sport engineering under his belt: I learned more from this book. In a way it is a wort refreshingly frank ... From engines, transmission, chassis and cooling to fasteners and finishes, it's concise, clear and comprehensive. Auto Express
Reseña del editor
If you are aspiring to build a racing car, this could be the book that you've been waiting for! Tony Pashley revisits the path that he took in the Pashley Project articles in Race Tech magazine during the design and construction of two successful hillclimb cars, but this time in great detail, with a view to enabling the reader to carry out a similar exercise for themselves. Although hillclimb and sprint cars are the focal topic, a lot of the book is applicable to race cars in general. The cars under discussion in the book are powered by motorcycle engines, which are meeting with great success in the smaller racing car classes. 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 heavily illustrated with 200 photographs and extensive explanatory diagrams and tables. A vital addition to any would be kit car builders library.Ver Descripción del producto

Improvements the author should consider are bigger pictures including more suroundings to put the featured components in context and more information on constructing the rear end which is the chief difference between motor cycle engined cars and transaxle engined cars. Having been through the process of designing the rear end I know that a lot more could have been mentioned.
this book realy has amazingness inside i realy think i can build a formula car now only need parts ..tools.. and folow the book
i maybe need to learn how use weld machine..
