What a beautiful car.

Like everyone else said, the body and paint is perfect. cheers cheers cheers

That is one serious packaging job. It's unbelievable they managed to massage that much equipment into such a small area.

If the builders decided to get into shipping and freight handling they'd change the world.

Awesome stuff and congrats to the team.

Also interested in the canopy.  Did he make it or buy it?

We made the plug, then the body mold, then a form for the canopy offset inboard by the canopy material thickness. That form went to a vacuum forming company in LA.

Thanks, do you have a name or link for them?

Also any more about the drive train you can tell us about or pictures?  I'm thinking front-wheel drive or a drive shaft to the rear??  Also if the engines are two 125's then you are giving up a lot of cc's aren't you?

I'll for sure try and find you and the car on the salt next year,

It is front wheel drive, theoretically there is enough space to cram in two more of the Rotax 125 cc engines. We pit with my club the SDRC.

I certainly agree with everyone else that is a pretty car! It just makes me more disappointed that I got sick at Speed Week this year and had to go home early so I missed your car!! The K record is held by Jim Burkdoll at 202 mph for the gas record and Brant/Spranza at 180 for the fuel record (this was with their old body configuration) so you have some pretty tough targets to shot at.

Good luck and looking forward to seeing your car next year!!~!

Rex,
     Sorry to hear you had to leave early. Jim Burkdoll came by, looked us over and paid us the extreme compliment of saying that this was the first car he had seen that looked like it might take his record away. While I value his words we still have to proof this pudding.

If you can get 4 of the Rotax 125s in there then you are going to have some pretty serious horse power! Some where between 150 and 200 probably which should make your car a VERY serious contender!

How about a pic of the engines.

I still like the roadster better.

Well -- I'm prejudiced.  I think that means having an opinion without real sensible backup.
