    Default Motorkhana Nationals 2005 - Photos.

    Attached below are some shots of Froggy cars at the National Motorkhana Championships held in Perth 6th Nov 2005.

    There may have been others but I couldn't pick them!

    I believe the Renault Special was the overall quickest time of the day, but I dont have any details.

    If you are interested, there are literally hundreds more photos on this website:

    including several more of each of the Froggies I have selected.

    Note: See next post for further photos.

    Cheers

    Default Great photos

    Well done and so good to see the Renault. Citroen and Peugeot competing.

    The West Australian said the Renault won the overall competition.

    Cheers

    Sorry, didnt intend anyone to think I took these photos - I was sent them by the official photographer. The same ones appear in the website photos.

    I did take a couple of good ones but too big (kbs) to post!

    Cheers.

    I noticed people who often do Motorkahnas often do Hill sprints. I want to build a Go-Kart that can do both.
    Looking at the Renault special I can see that the vehicles don't have to be road registered, but do they have to be CAMS approoved?? Also do all motorkahnas have a reverse section? - Chris

    Vehicle regulations are in the CAMS manual.
    Yes, you will need reverse.
    A guy named Allan Wheeley built a kart based special (with 1000cc or so Kawasaki engine!) 20 years or so ago and arranged reverse by a system of electric clutches IIRC.
    The concept was banned in favour of car based components.

    Thats the Colliers entry, you might like to chat to them about it & regs etc.
    I'm pretty sure they're in Granville, maybe duck in & have a chat to Dave.

    Had a go at re-sizing, is there an easy way in XP?

    Finally got these ones resized in Ulead Photo Express.

    1. Renault Special.
    2. Renault Special Engine - for those that may want to identify.
    3. Seen in the car park (because I was there!).

    Alan wheely's new motorkhana special is quiet nifty. It runs a motorbike engine and then onto a Golf GB. the golf gear box is very well set up. gives him foward and back straight in front of each other. and no need for a clutch..... his cars have always been very nifty.

    The Collier car has a 16TS motor (with pretty hefty mods) running EFI off a Camira with an aftermarket computer.

    The transmission is a 17 auto with an electronic change from forward to reverse (it only has first and reverse fitted), operated by a switch on top of the handbrake lever.

    The handbrake locks one rear wheel at a time - you lock the inside wheel and keep driving on the outside wheel to turn the car. And it turns better than anything I've ever seen.

    Specials must now have at least 10" wheels. There is another Renault powered special being built in Brisbane using an R25 2.2L mid engine and auto, using a switch for the for/rev solenoids, and only one fancy brake pedal to control the fiddle brake for each rear wheel and all four wheels as well.

    The owner will have it running for next year for the Aust Champs in Brisbane.
    '56 Renault 4CV (16TS Power)
    '62 Renault Dauphine Gordini
    '82 Renault Fuego GTX
    '89 Renault Alpine GTA V6 Turbo
    '02 and '03 Renault Clios 1.4L
    '13 Renault Megane RS265 Trophee+
