Engines for these little monster runs along the same lines. You can run whatever you want as long it breathes threw a 20mm restrictor.The JMIA explains that the size of restrictor of 20mm is suitable for the engine of 800-1000cc.TOM’s is using a 1-liter motor from the Yaris. It’s the one with the white F3 style airbow sticking out the side. The price of the engine made of Tom’s is about 800,000 yen. Also Toda is using they motor pictured below. It’s called they TR-FX01. I think its a L15 blockand is full stressed block to be built into the chassis, but look at that craftsmanship on the carbon fiber intake trumpets.

very speed racer-ish no? But man I want to drive it. Mooncraft use to a part of the group that was attached to they raybrig NSX in the Supergt series. They also did work on they Spoon wide bodt kit for S200’s.Now they do independent projects for hirer. I think they did a bodykit for the Prius but I’m not sure.
