Our Snake is our interpretation of the ever popular "sevenesque" style of 2-seat roadster, all set within a more curved body style and with the welcome addition of a decent size, lockable boot.
The powder coated chassis is constructed from lightweight 25mm sq steel tubing with fully welded sheet steel footwells (giving added leg protection) and full width upper seat belt / roll-hoop support beam.
The grp body, being one-piece, ensures quick and easy fitment and alignment, requiring only the bonnet and boot lid to be attached thereafter. The grp is supplied 2 pack painted to your colour choice or alternatively can be supplied unfinished "out of the mould" if preferred.
Suspension is via unequal double wishbone front and rear (adjustable for camber, castor, and toe), using Sierra front uprights (insert bushed for top swivel) and Sierra rear hubs (drum or disk), mounted onto fabricated steel carriers. Adjustable rate 1.9" coil-over shocks coplete the set-up.
The rear track is full sierra width using standard donor diff and driveshafts, with the front slightly wider.
The centre tunnel is narrow, to maximise seat width, and designed to accept the T9 gearbox. Ford zetec, duratec, totota 4age and audi 1.8 engines are all popular fitment as well as various bike engines.
Note the Vauxhall 2lt is tall in comparison and requires a special high bonnet.
Many extras up to full build are available, including full race and trackday machines.
