Thanks.  I can only take partial credit for the muffs as I didn't even need to ask him (I try to teach him right).

BTW I paid for my motor controller last night and it should be here next week.  I'll post pictures when I get it, but the amount of power I am going to have on tap is....  unhealthy. 

I also ordered a 91 trans am axle and it will be here tomorrow so I can start fitting that in.  I think I will end up having to narrow it with new ends and axles to fit under the skirts but it already has 2.73s and a limited slip. I think it's a zexel torsen in a series 2 carrier but I won't believe it until I pop off the cover.

Soylent green.  You guys are hilarious. grin  I didn't think about Soylent.

Sylent is a nod to the s10's super cool brother the awd Syclone.  But when I talk with my aero friends (I used to design GA aircraft ) it has taken the name "The Quick Brick"

Cool build. What shade of green are you going to paint it? grin

  I am going all satin black.  There is a guy in town who will dip it for 500 bucks.

Which one did you end, up with?

As far as the controller.....  it is shipped and will arrive next week. ..  Smiley

Beautiful project. Two questions:

Why AWD? At your projected speed, you won't be traction limited.
Have you considered an tapering aero bed cap?

AWD:  Well axle and motor limitations.  I am worried about how much power I can put through the 7.5 10 bolt and how much sustained power I can put through the 2 warp 9s for longer then 10 seconds.  I am thinking of powering the front axle with a 100-200kW AC motor.  It has a higher RPM so the 3.08 ratio will be okay.  But that is phase 2 of the build.  It will be rwd for now.

As for the cap: Yes. See attached. CFD is in progress.  I wanted the long bed so that I would have a smaller diverging angle. With the shorter bed it
is 15 degrees which is borderline at this Reynolds number.  I'll see what the CFD says before I start building.

Yep.  grin  This changes the direction of the project a bit.  Before I was going to be limited to the 400hp of the Soliton1.  But since Evnetics stopped production of it I had to go another route.  In the end I found I was able to get the *used* 1600hp Shiva for a little more then the new price of a Soliton1.  I did designed that battery pack so I could easily double the size. And I do have 2 more volt packs That would give me another 700hp for another 600lbs of weight over the rear wheels.   evil

Kerry, Have you looked into the aero mods done to the GMC Syclone that set records at Bonneville?
Very interesting.

With a satin black body you may need air conditioning.   grin

Thanks for sharing your build, Don

Hey Don, I have seen pictures but nothing more.  Do you have a link to more information on the Syclone LSR?  My goal is a Cd of <.35 which I think is pretty doable, it's the lift coefficient that I am more worried about. Smiley

As far as the AC at least it's a short run.  I used to road race in a all black C5 and yeah.... in the summer it gets uncomfortable fast.  Especially with all the safety gear on.
