Kick-Out SS Information and Pictures

Postby Brad Connell » Tue Jul 19, 2016 4:06 pm

There have been a few questions of late in regards to the Manx Kick-Out SS and I thought rather than address them to each individual I would add a post up here for all to see and offer a good starting point to those looking at building a Kick-Out SS.

The Kick-Out SS which from here on in we will just call the SS is the most recent offering from Meyers Manx and was released in 2009 and based on the Kick-Out Traditional but with a more street orientated audience with its sleek design, curved windscreen and molded dash.

Like all Meyers Manx Kits it is a very complete offering and takes a lot of the effort out of building the bits you see so you can concentrate on the bits you don't and make it your own.

Current Pricing on the SS Kit can be found at - http://www.meyersmanx.com/kick-out-manx-ss.shtml and at time of writing the base kit was $5700.

The cost of Building an SS will vary greatly depending on what you choose to put in it engine and suspension wise as well as how much of the work you do yourself as opposed to outsource. A Shop build will start around $23 500 for a VW powered buggy and around $35k for a Subaru Powered Buggy with 5 Speed transmission.

Unlike the Kick-Out Traditional Model the SS has a shaped dash to fit behind the curved windscreen and a small gauge cluster area where you can fit 2 x 4" gauges if you so desire.

I have seen others fit 3

When it comes to engines the main two options are VW and Subaru.

The VW option has no real limitations and you can pretty much fit any size you want. Like both the Kick-Out's the rear opening has been enlarged so that dual carbs fit without issue and Meyers Manx sells the side winder exhaust in both 1 1/2" and 1 5/8".

The other options is the Subaru. Now not to many SS builds have been done with Subaru Engines and one of the few was the Manx Club raffle car which ran a Subaru 5 Speed Transmission (SubaruGears.com) and a 2.5l N/A Subaru Engine. Due to the design of the SS you can't really fit Radiators in the side pods as the depth is not there like the Manxter so the front is the easiest location.

In order to get it to fit up front you can have to renmove some fiberglass to push it back under the hood.

Once you have cut it out then it is easy enough to mount but getting it to look right is in the eye of the beholder.

In the rear you can fit the Subaru Engine very well and a small amount of cutting to clear a few parts at the rear of the engine means it looks almost factory.

Some of these are not Kick-Out SS as such but the rear is the same as the Manxter so the exact same look can be achieved.
