Suzuki GSXR1100WP engine. Ported 1100WP head with stock valves. Conrods have been crack tested, polished, cryo treated and shot peened (MT&C Engineers). Crack tested, cryo treated and shot peened (MT&C Engineers) 5 speed undercut gearbox. Deep/wide high capacity sump to avoid oil pressure surge problems.
This engine was transplanted into the Jedi racing car that Stephen is currently racing in the NSW Hillclimb Championships.
The sidecar was a Pacific chassis designed and built in the late nineties by sidecar racer Peter Shoemark. It is a rear engine long bike, with a space frame tubular steel chassis, and centre-hub steering. The suspension is similar to the LCR's from the early nineties.
UPDATE: Sidecar was originally sold to Mitchel Cluff, but is now in Queensland somewhere. Darren is now swinging for Jeff Brown, and they are doing well in the Ozzie Titles together. Stephen is now competing on four wheels in the NSW Hill Climb Championships.
