I put the car on my friends scales, trying to balance the car as much as possible! Also going to do some canards up front for a little more downforce, might need a bigger splitter to make it work the way I want. Remember I’m not going for any records with this, I’m just having fun!

Gotcha, looks the part for setting some records.... Great work so far!
Looking forward to seeing what you do with the canards.

I am far from patient! I just want to take it out, and play. I just know this thing has way more power than I need, and I don’t want to f’it up.

What sucks the most about these cars is how little you can use them.
The wind, air temp, location, car setup all has to be perfect. Some guys run several times a week because they have weather that cooperates and rural roads available. I get to run maybe 6 days a year if I am lucky....

To be fair, I tend to push my conditions pretty hard. The last couple times I ran at the airport I was looking at 7-15mph winds on the leading edge of some pretty severe weather. Sure, I'm not running in the top 10% yet, but 110+ is still pretty punishing for wild variables.

Strong headwinds are no joke. I flipped a GT car at around 30mph with strong 25+ mph winds.
GT bodies do not like cross winds at all.
The only way to run with wind is a tail wind, but then you have to be very careful on the drive back to you.

We have great roads that are dead straight, but we have a lot of traffic, that’s why I was thinking about the Salt Flats, but I might look for a small airport to run at. I asked a friend if we could have a big event at the airport he works at, but the higher ups have not given him an answer!

Here in NL, we can have all types of weather in a single day. So there is basically often a brief window to take it out for a run. That's why i need my speedrun roads close by, if it takes me more than 15 min to put it in action, the window could be over. I could blame part of my high crashrate on instant weather changes.

I am actually thinking about putting more light on the outside to be able to drive it after sundown when traffic is low enough on ideal roads. At nights the weather seems calmer/more constant too.

Looking really good so far! Scorched should sponsor this car 🤔 I especially like the detail they put into things that often get overlooked, like the bevel along the edge of the shock towers. I really need to pick up the servo saver delete and a few other parts from them. I'm really looking forward to seeing it all run.

Here is what I envisioned for the bi-level wing. I just did a mock up so it is not permanent, wanted to see if I would like it. I do!

I am going to use my digital protractor to set the angle. Also going with a bigger splitter with canards.
