Default toniq r lights

really like the lights on the toniq r so thought ill get some if they are not too expensive, this is the email i got back..................................

Hi Andy

Thankyou for contacting Toniq Ltd

The items you are enquiring about are available for sale. The units are made in billet aluminium and come complete with mounting bars, stand offs, bolts and rear wing stays to complete the look. I will also include a full set of internals for you - this will include two front main lamps, two front indicators, two rear stop tail lamps and two rear indicators.

Because the items are bespoke low production items I must tell you that they do not come cheap - but then when does anything that looks good come cheap?

I can sell you the full set as outlined above for 1500 + VAT

I look forward to hearing from you soon

Regards

Colin Williams

If you're buying these (and I can see you're tempted ) Steve at SVC reckons the headlamps are not SVA friendly, being motorbike items which dip straight down and not to the left.

SVC sell them

http://www.s-v-c.co.uk/lights_head.html

(about three quarters of the page down - "Racing Headlamps").

I've been searching for months for SVA friendly lights,smaller than 5 & 3/4 inches for my new project and I can't find ANY!

Any leads would be appreciated

cheers

Chris

It's a bike engined single seater, similar to a 60's formula one car.

Cheers

The chassis exists in the computer, no steel cut yet though.

Lots of work ahead

cheers

Nah you don't want an 800hp Hyabusa that would be STUPID.
Chris' car has its roots set in the 60's. Bolting a lightweight multivalve, fuel injected, sequentially geared engine into the back would be historically wrong. Also at a time when British Engineering was at the forefront of R&D and a time when we were still a little sore at the Japanese for causing a bit of a fuss two decades earlier , bolting any product of the rising sun would be ethically and Culturally wrong.

So what are the options, Supercharged A series, nah, been done. Hilman Imp/ Coventry Climax, too unreliable when tuned. T160 Trident engine, replete with Norman Hyde heads and cams, possible but tickling the carbs would be quite tedious and these engines are getting a bit hard to find.

Nope what you need, and you can make these at home (try google)
A Gas Turbine Engine. Developed by pioneering English Inventors in the Fifities and sixties, with Slide rules, log table and a lathe, capable of 1000lbs of thrust and run on paraffin, therefore excise exempt.
There you have it cutlurally, historically, environmentally correct and can be built at home, how Locost is that!!!

Woo Hoo!

I see another book on the horizon

"Build your own gas turbine engine"

I can just imagine the law suit when it blows up!

I'm going for a Yamaha FZR1 or possibly a Honda Fireblade, but not both at the same time.

cheers

Chris
