totally hot. Although, I wonder if that "cage" configuration is legal for nasa wheel to wheel? or is it going to need a forward hoop as well with a halo above the driver?

100% legal for NASA and SCCA.

There is a second lower hoop under the cowl.


Jim the desiger is an active NASA racer and knows the safety rules very well.

Very nice!!! that is an amazing kit then for sure.

I just priced out a kit... MAN would I love one of these, but I'd probably have to sell my current race car to even try for one

So what power is the motor making, as it obviously won't be exactly stock?

^^^^ninja'ed me <----edit


For the weight, at that power, I was honestly expecting quicker.

I imagine that they are shaking it out still, so I'm anxious to see what they get out of it.

when did they publish that tidbit? John was NOT happen since the car was constantly seeing 1.5G's everywhere, and peaks much higher. I didn't want to say anything until after FF5 made that public.

wow- 123 mph through the esses! That missing gear is costing at least several seconds per lap. PPG's and 818R's seem made to go together. Noone's going to be leaving these things at 250 hp. Better tell Andrew to get a batch on order

Things just aren't the same without the oak tree

Wow, someone brought a 968- that's obscure.

Would have expected the M3 to do better

I'd love to know how you've managed to come to that conclusion from that video.
