here is a very rough doodle, for a mid-engine locost seven proposal.

A simple round tube design, with minimal bodywork.
Engines: any fwd. or flat four placed in the middle.

Proposed Year unveiling......2008? .

What do you guys think? give me some feedback and please, vote the poll....

Cheers guys
Italo

Like it.

Concerned how it would be locost though. How would you do the screen?

Mark,
Actualy for the screen, its an of the shelf unit, a Fiat cinquecento or Daewoo Matiz screen.

I did a few measurements and it would fit perfectly in one of my proposed chassis....
For the chasssis, any mid-engine set-up. like the Sylva R10ot, the Mev rocket, or other specifically designed.

I have seen a very simple locost mid-engine chassis, so will rework that to include this new design....

Keep it coming guys.....

From a practical point, you need to do something more with the front cycle wings.

At the mo the tyre will throw up road cr*p towards the open sided cockpit and the (I guess) open air vents for the engine.

I would personally like to see a slightly wider cockpit too. I like to be able to get my arms in!

Also concerned the rear wheels are too far back, so drive shafts will have too acute an angle.
