Yay! My Kamtec Tomcat shells arrived (I got a spare one too lol). I think I've finally got everything to put this ZXR together, now I just need the time to do it!

Nice, that shell makes the car look mean and the one pictured on Kamtec is mine and am still using it, quality product.

I know it's your shell and just wanted to say thanks for helping Kamtec get it back to market. Should go really well with my CF tub, which I also have you to thank for (and Fibrelyte obviously!)

I forgot what the Tomcat shell looked like, but after I re-freshed my memory, I feel very happy to see it available again.

Your welcome, i didnt realise how big a hit the tub would be when i came up with the idea but a bit gutted that I earnt zero from all sold, but am happy it made a difference to others and is still going strong again.

I have a Tomcat shell slated for one of my tubs too
Not sure if it will go on the new Fibrelyte shelfer tub or the vintage concom rummer tub yet

I just built a pair of velvet shocks for the rear of SWB Mid shelfer and they are leaking, either that or residue from when I filled them with oil. I used Silicon shock oil, could that be too thin for them?

I always use associated outer shock cap seals as most leak without those on. Makes a big difference

Is this for the upper or lower shock cap?
Luckily I need to pull these apart anyway to put stoppers on the shafts, its only a shelfer and I want it to sit nice and low, maybe I shouldn't have bothered putting oil in them

Whats the part number, do the ZX-S shocks have those seals on them?

Hi Guys, first post here.

Wow, I have just finished reading all 246 pages of this thread and I'm totally blown away by the dedication shown towards keeping the Lazer on the track in the modern era. There's some very talented people on here.

I used to race a Lazer ZX and then a ZXR back in the day and have some very fond memories of those cars and after finding this thread I bit the bullet and purchased a used ZXR of ebay with the intention of reliving my youth

The car I bought appears to have many period hop-ups, the brands of which I'm unfamiliar with as many of the aftermarket brands were not imported here in New Zealand. From this thread I've managed to figure out what brand some of them are but may need some help with the others. I'll try to post some photo's (when I figure out how) from the original ebay auction.

Top of shock body around the thread of the shock where the cap screws on. Think i did that to your zxs shocks when i built them.

£120 not including p&p, & possibly tax. Still its value for money when you realise how its made and i still dont earn a penny from this as you know my passion is to keep the car and parts still available to race.

I have decided to sell my ZX-R with full Fibrelyte carbon tub/upper deck/towers and Parma Tomcat body - just need to get round to uploading pics.

PM or email me if interested.

Welcome to the club. Lets see them but can say if you have the alloy pivot blocks, bluey green front castor blocks (teamline), rc10 type screw on slipper clutch (hyper clutch), ujs all around, titanium tie rods, and carbon fibre chassis & towers then its pretty much spot on. However you will need a vts slipper clutch from the B4 and alcyons layshaft to bring it up to the pace of nowadays cars. This once set up correctly is much more fun than any of these new cars to drive.

Ok here's a few pics from the original Ebay auction.
The car came from the UK. The seller stated that the car had been in a cupboard for over 20 years so therefore I would assume that the hop-ups would all be period items.

From reading this thread I've managed to work out that the front castor blocks and front shock tower are Teamline.

The chassis has a 'W' cut into it so I believe this would be from Wasp.......I assume the carbon top plate would be from Wasp too. I'm not sure about the carbon brace above the motor.... would this be a Wasp item?

The slipper clutch appears to be a Wasp item also. How did these compare to the standard ZXR slipper clutch?

The finned motor plate I am unsure of.....and also the blue alloy suspension arm mounts. Ideas anybody?

Nearly forgot.... HPI wheels too
