Sylva Mojo

Hi, my name is Trevor, and here you can follow my build of a "Sylva Mojo" kit car. Please remember the oldest news is at the bottom of this page, so if you have not visited for a while, please read from the bottom up.

XR2 collected

The Mojo uses the engine, gearbox, front driveshafts and hubs off a MK2 fiesta XR2, all of which is removed, and goes straight into the rear of the Mojo.

The XR2 was found on eBay, and after a test drive mid week, was collected today and driven home on a special 1 day insurance policy. (It even had tax and the MOT is valid for 5 months!)

Almost seems too nice to strip and then scrap!

Capri Parts

The Mojo uses Capri front uprights (Hubs), calipers and strut units, which are cut down by the factory to then go onto the car.

After much searching I found someone stripping a 2L laser Capri, with the standard single brake disk setup required. These were collected today, he even removed them off the car for me!

These will now be sent to Sylva for modification and will be ready for my collection date.

Totalkitcar Live (Brands Hatch)

Today I went to Totalkitcar live at Brands Hatch. It is an event where most of the industries Kitcar manufacturers get together, and offer passengers flying laps around the circuit in their cars.

As some of you may already know, I own a Sylva Jester Kitcar, and have always wanted a Sylva Mojo, the grown up brother of the Jester. (Think of it as an upgrade!)

After myself and the better half had 5 flying laps each around Brands, we were completely sold on the Mojo.

A deposit was placed there and then, with a collection date of 8th Dec. (Longer than the actual league time, but my choice as most convenient.)
