Does anyone know where i can get a mgzr s2000 body kit from.. I know rally tech make them for bill gwynne motorsport.. but they are very expensive!!!
Wow!! Stunning bit of kit!!!I'm pretty sure that you'll only really be able to get the body panels from Rallytech or Bill Gwynne Motorsport. The latter company have taken over the car from Motor Sport Developments (MSD) who were the company that initially designed the car.
One option to try would be to ask BGMSport as Bill Gwynne Motorsport are now known if they have any damaged panels that might be repairable? OK, it'll involve a little more work for yourself, but it also might just save you some money if they do have some damaged panels that haven't been skipped yet.
BGMSport are advertising an MG S2000 SPORT on www.rallycarsforsale.net but here is a link to the article on www.mgs2000.co.uk along with a telephone number for BGMSport > http://mgs2000.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?f=49&t=356
Good luck in recreating something like this...
Good advice this. We had a Group A Harry Hockley Astra and a Group N Astra at the same time a few years back (both MK3's). The better results were in the GPN car as the kit car never finished without problems. No enjoyment there at all having a car that on paper can be a top 2WD contender, but is plagued with DNF's.Snowy is right. The S2000 is a fabulous looking piece of kit, and every Rally driver wants a car that looks and goes like this, but let me share a harsh lesson that I have had this year. I rallied a Group N 1400 ZR last season, an ex works scholarship car, standard box with 5.1 final drive and ATB diff. Not once did it ever break down, or miss a beat, and it gave me loads of fun and a few class podiums, more by reliability than speed, but a pot is a pot!
I should have put a decent box in her and carried on, but I knew better. I sold her, and bought an all singing and dancing 106, wide track, mega 1400 engine and box etc etc. In every rally I have done this year, I have led the class by miles, but how many have I actually won? answer........none......not one single finish. The bills have mounted up, and I have been out of the sport for a few months now, as the budget is spent fixing the car.
£4000 is way too much to spend on a bodykit, but that is small change compared to the rest. Darren Pinchens S1400 Proton engine was £15,000 plus, The 2 ZRs of Callum Black and Matt Edwards, running at the front of the BTRDA cost in the region of £45,000 to put together, and have Suzuki S1600 running gear, front and back. It is crazy money, but fine if you can afford it!
Stay standard, go rally first/MGZR challenge, enjoy the car and do as many events as you can. If a part breaks, go to a scrappy and get a new part. When I had the ZR, I bought a complete running R25 for £200, so I had a spare everything. Bitter experience has now taught me that as soon as you start modifying a car, you start breaking it. Unless you have a truly MASSIVE budget, keep it standard!
I shall be back next year.....in a ZR, probably an 1800 Group N, with top suspension, because thats all you need, and instead of sitting on here, frustrated as hell, I will be out doing events!
Hope it helps!
