This time some pics of 2 RG500 hill climb cars a Jedi and a Nero, the Nero is the one in the pic. Some information about the Nero. The Nero PF1 is a single seater race car designed and built in 1992 for use in Formula 500 circuit racing, 500 cc class speed hill climbs and sprints. The mild steel space frame chassis has aluminium sheet riveted in place for added stiffness, and can take a wide variety of motorbike engines up to 1200 cc. The Suzuki RG500 Gamma engine is a unique water-cooled 4 cyl square configuration including use of power valves. This specific engine was selected because of its high power (over 100 bhp), low weight and low centre of gravity. In this particular example the drive is transmitted by chain to a modified Mini differential. Numerous Mini parts have been utilised to ensure ready availability of spares and low cost repairs (if ever required). Mini 10" solid disc brakes are fitted all round, including inboard on the rear. On a technical note the suspension (in board all round), has been designed so that bump stiffness is completely separate from roll stiffness. This provides excellent road holding and is another unique design choice.
