    The great thing about these types of cars is that the rich americans will buy them up in droves, then in 2 years they will be bored of them and sell them to us poor canadians

    said something about racing in fall 2015, so I guess sell now build later. pretty cool stuff if it works as advertised.

    Cause it is. Look at the size of the screws on the wing compared to say, the centre nuts of the wheels.

    So Greg, why you think it's faster than a radical?

    Aero might be better? It's got less power and more weight. About 200 lbs more and down about 20hp, so fairly significant. The closed cockpit should make it better for the straights though and it will have more torque.

    Might not be as fast at the ragged edge of driving to extract every 10th of a second out there but will be faster when driven regular guys most of the time perhaps due to the extra torque of the motor.

    There's so many custom car companies. I guess what makes this one a little more special is a spec race?


    I think 2 new ones already came from japan... the VITA-01
    and some other one I forget.



    learned about stohr this year, but stohr doesn't seem to have as big of a presence as radical and arial atom in media or something?

    I remember seeing a used renault for $30k in zhuhai.
