martin & walker Information

Postby NelsonM » Thu Nov 21, 2013 8:49 am

I'm looking for information on the M&W kits. I apologize in advance, I am sure this has been discussed many times, but I can't locate any prior posts.

I am looking for specific knowledge on overall quality of the base kit (frame & body). If we move forward it will probably be built with performance in mind, so want to make sure we are starting with a solid foundation.

Again, any comments or direction to prior posts would be appreciated.

I drove an M&W Spyder for about 7 years.

I believe that the chassis and bodies are good.

The current cars have wishbone front suspension with rack and pinion steering. At the back there is DeDion suspension with radius rods and a Panhard rod.

All in all a very good basis for a performance car that will stick to the road.

As standard they accept type 1, type 4, and Alpha Romeo flat 4. Versions with Porsche flat 6 and Suby power have been built.

Search on the site for Mighty Spyder to see an alloy bodied M&W with a very special Jake Raby engine.

The M&W website is 904gts.com
