the adoption of a carbon tub

If someone told me they were going to do this I would suggest it is not possible-advisable.

Must admit its pretty slick now that I see it.

Fabio, The car looks great!!!  I like the your idea of the tub for a safety cell.  This should give you an added dimension of protection.  Are you using the Delphi ECU or something ells with that Pi dash? Tony

Fabio, magnifico! cheers  That is a huge project and well done for sure.  My only suggestion is to be sure to have the tires covered to prevent salt from getting all over that wonderful suspension and transaxle, it gets everywhere. I love the car within a car for the driver's tub, it is much better to bump against panels in a tub than the edge of a roll cage tube.  grin
I was lucky to have been in your town with it's walled old city area some 3-4 years ago, beautiful area of Italy for sure. We were there on business in Brescia and had a great 10 day stay, mostly at the company that was building a special robot cell for us.
Bonneville brings out all kinds of unusual design ideas, I hope you and your car make it to the salt this year, it will be interesting to see.  Best of luck!

Thank you for your kind comments I appreciate that after so much work !

The data acquisition system is from P.I. and is integrated with the dash and with the ECU engine management this last from Pectel .Both units are fixed on the carbon tub while the ignition box is just behind head restraint

Have provision for wheel housing/fender to assure better aerodynamic performance of the wheel and protect from salt spray as much as possible : There are two lower stainless fairing fixed on the upper side of the floor inside the wheel housing and a wheel cover for each wheel, in the picture this last one is made in fiberglass but will be in manufactured  in Kevlar once all details defined.

   Wow..................  what a neat suprise for the new year.  This ain't a garage built jalopy..............  Welcome to the LSR world.  I can hardly wait to see it at Bonneville with the body panels off.
  You might want to talk to our rules committee about how much space you have allowed for tire clearance to the tubs.  If I remember correctly, they sent a streamliner home about ten years ago for not enough room left for salt build up in the tub. 
  Good luck.................                Bob
 cheers
p.s.  bring some good cheese and wine with you............. grin

Very nice build. And I'm sure that one side of your exhaust cost more than my car... Smiley

Hi Fabio and crew,
I'm the driver of the #1133 Flower of Scotland streamliner and I'm based either in Zurich (just up the road from you) or in Nice (just down the road from you), so if you want any help or advice about Speedweek from logistics to whatever or even just a chat with a fellow LSR dreamer please drop me a line.
(More than anything I'm after an invite to come and see the car in the flesh because it looks absolutely STUNNING.)
Welcome to LSR and you've come to the right place with this forum!
Cheers

What a beautiful piece. Every year, the bar is raised another notch! Can't wait to see this in person...

Fabio - I tried to e-mail you about a book I'm working on. Would be honored to have you in it.
