Designed by Lee Noble after he sold the Ultima project and before moving into more upmarket projects.

hi all
i own a midtec spyder,its fitted with a 2.7 v6 out of an early renault, i can agree with what people say about its looks its a bit of a marmite car but the road holding is fantastic.
ive had a locust,2 robin hoods and a tiger but this is by far the best handling car ive ever driven.

Perhaps a box would be a bit more attractive lol

Check the wheelbase and see if anything else is close. Friends don't let friends drive ugly. /you'd be better off doing one of those simple track-car-type bodies, where you just make everything straight and then curve the front.

Stupid question, but are you not able to use the 'Upload an image (beta)' tool embedded in the reply page just above the textbox?

I used it to add image below:



Otherwise you could host the image elsewhere & embed the link in the post

I just think that the Midtec needs a restyling job, in the two section I erased on this sketch, the rear needs shortening and the front needs a different and shorter nose.


I think that the kit could inprove greatly with a few design tweeks.........just need a body to work with........smile

Sorry, but I think the Midtec's styling problems are many & various and it'll take more than a few tweaks to resolve it. The Elise could be a lot of work if the basic dimensions don't match pretty closely - and cutting & shutting such a shape would be no small matter.

If it's a track weapon my first thought was the Porsche 908 Spyder:



The thinking being that it might be (realtively) easy to adjust length & width as necessary but whilst I think a replica does exist, it's rare and I doubt cheap.

So my second thought is the Lola T490 series:

In fact I think someone else in the PH forums has built a Porsche engined hillclimb beast using a similar Lola body.

I'm not sure the Midtec is actually quite as cab-forward as either of these - the single plane through the nose and windscreen is deceptive (as well as ugly)


Any more photos of the chassis to post - especially side elevation and front 3/4?
