ThreeSheds Posted August 24, 2007 Share Posted August 24, 2007 Hi, In the late 80s (I think) there was a serious piece of kit around called the 'Strange Rover' that was built by Alvin Smith Garages. They had a RRC chassis with the engine & transmission turned about so that they were behind the driver (the gear lever was still in the same place, but with a reversed pattern). The front and rear axles were then turned upside down to correct the direction of travel. The whole thing was then topped off by an enormously beefy tubular space frame with aluminium infill panels that together formed the minimalist bodywork. This effectively made a Land Rover based, mid-engined off-road racer which looked the dogs danglies Thinking about these last night (have to do something when I can't sleep ) and I was wondering: Does anybody still run one of these? Why did the concept not catch on - is it not as good off-road as a standard layout? Anybody got any pictures of them?
