Radical SR8 - 2.6l V8 The Radical SR8 has taken the racing and trackday scene by storm in 2005. Based on the SR3 chassis, the SR8 boasts an all-new bodywork and aerodynamic package which endows it with class-leading handling characteristics, whilst maintaining enough room for two large adults. All who are fortunate enough to drive the SR8 are amazed at how easy such a high-performance vehicle is to drive. "the SR8 is the best handling sportscar I have driven, bar none" - Martin Short, Rollcentre Le Mans team SR8 Brochure* Specification Owners Manual* Colour Chart* Schematic Drawing What the Media Say *Acrobat Reader Required At the heart of the SR8 is the amazing 363bhp Powertec RPA V8 engine. This unique powerplant provides enormous power, delivered with a very flat torque curve. Revving to 10,500rpm, this 2.6 litre engine has been described by Circuit Driver magazine as “the most important development since the Cosworth DFV”. For 2006, an uprated six-speed sequential transaxle is available with a pneumatic paddle-actuated gear shift system, enabling drivers to experience the full Le Mans prototype experience at a fraction of the cost. Radical are working with the Le Mans Series organisers and Dunlop to develop a World Radical Cup in which the SR8 is the true stepping stone from club racing to Le Mans. Engine Powertec RPA 2.6 litre V8 engine delivers 363bhp and 210ft lbs of torque at a maximum of 10,500rpm. This extremely lightweight engine utilises superbike cylinder head technology with the majority of other components being manufactured in-house. An integral four-pump scavenge system ensures that the engine operates at maximum efficiency under all conditions. The induction system comprises a low, twin-butterfly plenum chamber, which allows cool air to be fed directly into the engine, while maintaining a good aerodynamic flow to the rear wings. A LIFE engine control unit provides Powertec with a complete histogram of the engines operation. Engines are warranted for 30 hours between rebuilds (terms available on request). Transmission A six-speed sequential transaxle with integral limited-slip differential and reverse is now available with an optional pneumatic, paddle-operated, semi-automatic gear shift system enabling seamless shifts to be made. The clutch is a twin-plate type with hydraulic actuation. Chassis The powder-coated steel spaceframe chassis is clad with power-coated bonded aluminium panels and complies with MSA and SCCA regulations. Safety is paramount at Radical. All SR8 cars incorporate a race-proven front crashbox, side impacts pods, front and rear roll-over bars with optional forwardfacing stays. The chassis will withstand a frontal impact of 18 times the cars own weight, and 12 times the cars own weight vertically on the roll-over bar. 54 litre foam filled fuel tank mounted behind driver. Optional 77 litre FIA approved fuel cell available. Suspension The patented ‘Nik’ suspension system is fully adjustable and operates at both the front and rear of the SR8. Available with single- or triple-adjustable dampers, the ‘Nik’ system gives drivers a unique ‘confidence factor’ which allows drivers to put the SR8 ‘on the limit’ without fear of a sudden breakaway. Bodywork The bodywork comprises self-coloured glass fibre nose with integral engine cooling ducts, and an engine cover with a low-drag induction inlet. Fixed side pods and cockpit surround incorporate sidemounted engine and transmission radiators. The high-downforce generated by the front diffuser and dive planes is balanced by a large rear diffuser and optional bi-plane rear wing. Cockpit As with all Radicals, drivers immediately feel at one in the cockpit, with everything falling straight to hand. The moulded driver/passenger seat is extremely comfortable and can be adjusted to suit most driver sizes. The pedalbox can similarly be adjusted to further enhance driver comfort. Instrumentation A wrap-around carbon-composite dashboard features all the switches and controls, plus Radical’s unique instrument panel. This panel incorporates a super-bright LED rev counter, shift lights, high-intensity LCD display of engine parameters and speed, plus warning lights and maximum revs recall button. An integral steering wheel/dash/data logger is available with an optional predictive lap timer. Wheels Lightweight, cast aluminium 7” ✕ 15” dia. front and 8” ✕ 16” dia. rear wheels are supplied as standard. Wider, 8.5” ✕ 15” dia. front and 10.5” ✕ 16” dia. rear centre-lock, three-piece wheels are available to fit purpose-designed Dunlop slicks and wets. Brakes Four pot Radical calipers and 260mm dia. ✕ 25mm 30 vane vented discs ensure phenomenal braking performance. A larger 280mm dia. ✕ 25mm 48 vane floating disc option is available to further enhance braking. An optional dashboard-mounted brake bias adjuster enables the brake balance to be adjusted to suit the prevailing conditions. Size/Weight Width - 1.8m, length - 4.10m, minimum dry weight - 630kg The Farringdon SWIS10/20 Steering Wheel Instrument Systems provide all the main instrumentation for a competition car in a single ergonomic enclosure integrated into a steering wheel. The system consists of the steering wheel and a small control box. The steering wheel is connected by a short curly cable to a chassis mounted socket. This socket, all sensors and 12 volt power are connected to a single 25 or 44 way sealed connector on the control box.
