Exocet Lightweight to Compete in 2012 Time Attack Series

Exocet Lightweight to Compete in 2012 Time Attack Series

Exocet Lightweight Time Attack

Exomotive is proud to announce a collaboration between James Hayward, the gentleman responsible for bringing Kit Car content to the Autosport International UK show, and Team MEV to run the Exocet Lightweight in selected Time Attack rounds throughout this season. With Adam Wilkins of Complete Kit Car Magazine running the car in a few rounds of the 750MC Sports Specials, it makes perfect sense to introduce the car to the Club NA Class of the Time Attack series.

After a full day of testing in the pouring rain last friday to give the car a thorough shakedown, James reported that the car is running sweet as a nut and is VERY, VERY quick. Based on the excellent power to weight ratio of the Lightweight Exocet, he believes they have a good chance of winning!

Be sure to come out to Brands Hatch on July 8th to support Team MEV as we attack this new series. As always, we could not have done this without massive help from our sponsors that have made this possible. A big thanks go out to Mills Extreme Vehicles, OMEX, SuperPro, Gaz Shocks, Auto Finesse, FatFish Motorsport, Nicholas Horne Photography and Complete Kit Car Magazine.

MEV Rocket in Kit Car Builder Magazine

MEV Rocket in Kit Car Builder Magazine

MEV Rocket featured in Kit Car Builder Magazine

Our MEV Rocket has a great feature in the March/April edition of Kit Car Builder Magazine – “Good Bones!” The reviewer had some great things to say about our exoskeletal kit car. Check out the quotes:

“0-60 in under 4 seconds… done an indicated 143 mph and still has some more.”

“The driving experience was one of the nicest experiences I’ve ever experienced in light track-day cars.”

“Eagle Canyon Raceway…is an ideal place for the Rocket, with phenomenal acceleration due to th exceptional power to weight ratio, coupled with rat-with-tennis-shoes handling and killer brakes.”

“The (Rocket) Kit starts at $7,438……a complete base model can be built for about $15,000, or one to this SVT spec for about $18,000. That’s Cobra-level track performance for less than the cost of a new Miata, and less than half the ticket on a new Atom”

Well, what are you waiting for?! We’ve got another container load of RTR cars on the way and still have a few kits available. Save on shipping and order one soon before this load sells out! Give us a call at 404-919-1396 or email here.

MEV Rocket becomes first road-legal exoskeletal vehicle in Australia

MEV Rocket becomes first road-legal exoskeletal vehicle in Australia

Aussie Exoskeletal Bliss

The year keeps getting better with more fantastic news from down under. Our Australian dealer, Terry Southam of Southam Automotive Engineering, announces that their MEV Rocket has passed Australia’s extremely tough, specialist vehicle regulations. The MEV Rocket is the first road legal exoskeletal vehicle in the entire continent.

After receiving their first Rocket in 2010, over 12 months were spent tweaking the design to comply with Australian regulations. Test jigs were constructed to ensure the Rocket could withstand the super stiff torsional rigidity figure of 4500nm/degree of deflection – something not even the Ariel Atom has attained. Also new for the Australian model is a pedestrian-friendly front nose cone developed in conjunction with the Curtin University of Product Design. Terry’s engineering expertise will undoubtedly bring additional improvements to the Rocket in the coming months and we are excited to see the fruits of his efforts. Find out more about Southam Automotive Engineering (SAE) here.

Exomotive announces partnership with Flymount

Exomotive announces partnership with Flymount

Exomotive becomes US dealer for Flymount

Exomotive, the leading provider of exoskeletal kit cars in the US, is excited to announce a partnership with Flymount, makers of the best extreme sports camera mount on the market.

This revolutionary camera mount is the only device on the market made specifically for attaching cameras to cylindrical objects found in action sports and extreme environments. The Flymount is ultra compact, super lightweight, built to last, and now used by some of the world’s most respected photographers and athletes. With the addition of their new GoPro adapter, the Flymount is simply the best choice for mounting a camera to your exocar.

“As we began testing the Exocet in 2011, it became clear to me that the standard GoPro roll bar mount was not up to the task of providing a stable video platform during spirited drives,” said Exomotive President Kevin Patrick. “After seeing some footage of the Flymount in action on Ma5da Racing’s MEV Exocet MX150R, I had to try it out for myself. Within 5 minutes of getting it out of the box, I was hooked. This is the best mount I have come across.”

The Flymount’s unique camera attachment system protects your camera from coming loose during vibration or shock. It is perfect for use on windsurf rigs, roll bars, mountain bikes, boats, quads and much more. Any camera with a standard tripod mounting point can be used with the Flymount, including lightweight DSLRs.

Flymounts will be available for sale shortly in the new Exomotive online store.
