Never heard of these but at $300k someone sure has.

Pretty nice, but it looks like trailer fenders tacked on. A formula-type car on the street is even more dangerous than our little clown cars.

I'm curious how the transaxle connects to the yamaha engine case... can't tell in the photos.. I thought these were split cases that included the transmission housing in the case?
Looks like it’s an enclosed chain, like most MC to Car swaps. (AFAIK, the Hyabusa -> Smart swaps don’t even enclose the chain. It’s basically a shifter kart set-up)
Basically just a modernized Formula 3.

So top gear video 'splains it.. Yamaha gearbox is still used and chain drives he transaxle which then handles the Hi/Lo ranges and reverse.. so does that mean you have 5 reverse gears?
so when we would run the 24hrs LeMall autocross course (yes back in the 80's SCCA ran a 24hr autocross at the former site of Eastland Mall, Charlotte, NC) in actual 'reverse' this would have been so much more. And as we know "More is More" (S.Galat)
