Not as interesting as Mazda's picture of Franklin's reincarnation, which looks like a grenade went off in a pipe factory.

 

I do like the white ghost of a Seven floating watchfully over head in your shop!

In addition to my seven pieces, there are parts from a couple different rock crawlers in there :lol:

Yeah we found a few 2.2L that we snatched up. We are working on a new supercharger system. We are building our own system with HKS fuel management. We are running one of the cars on E85 and are looking to get some decent powerband improvement over the previous car. We are hoping to get 75-100 more hp over the last set up. We will find out in about a month. Loren

I gave Kevin my own personal USA7s banner!

 

As for the stickers, we're working on it, people...

 

Kevin still has the poster. He hangs it on the toy hauler at events.

Sponsors take up a good portion on the car but I am sure we can find someplace to put the USA7s sticker.

 

Some more pics of car progress.

More info about the wing please

 

will you be running a front wing too?

 

Here is the web site for the wings.

They make them in both carbon fiber and aluminum.

 

With the wing configuration we have selected

they claim at 120 mph we can generate 400+ lbs of down force.

depending on AOA of course. We would like to drive the AOA

(angle of attack) electrically so at low speeds we have a high AOA

and at high speeds we trim it out and have less drag. Then of course blow it to

max AOA under braking and cornering for max down force.

 

Cheers

Kevin
