    Ridiculous homemade track car

    DP Cars
    note: getting to the begining of the design log can be a bit confusing. click on the picture of the car on the left. then click the question mark at the top of the screen. from there follow the Desgin Log link. After that it's pretty obvious.











    Follows the whole build from initial sketches up through it's first test runs with the Hyabusa motor. The eventual power plant is going to be a V8 made from two busa motors (currently being installed into his atom for "testing"). Just goes to show what you can do if you have the will the time and more importantly the $$$$$$$$$. He actually plans on selling more of them once he gets the first one sorted out.



    if this is a repost lock it i did a search but couldn't find any threads about this car specifically

    I believe this has been posted before.

    There is no replacement for displacement.

    ... I ask Herb Helbig, vehicle synthesis manager for SRT and a member of the original Team Viper development group since day one, if they'd ever thought of adding traction control. "It comes with two," he says, pointing at my feet. "Learn to use them." Got it.

      the thread posted before was about the atom which is serving as the test bed for the V8 that will eventually end up in this home built death machine

        Yeah, but I've seen that car before long ago.

            I've been following his design and testing log for a while. Very cool stuff
            Great read too, if you have any interest in engineering.
