Hey all. This is going to happen but I have to finish my pre-runner BATLFOZ Forester thing before I start this. I have everything drawn up. All the parts picked. Budget calculated. Just gotta finish a couple other projects ahead of it.
The whole point was to make it AWD so make it more stable and more (for lack of a better word) versatile. Change the springs and the pushrod length and put some knobby tires and you can hit the dunes... I've re-designed a lot of this going from something cheaper and using off the shelf parts to just going all out and making most of it from scratch. I changed the suspension design to utilize the same lower arm, upper arm, and knuckle to work on all four corners so save fab time and the amount of jigs I'll need to make if I decide to go for re-production. I've taking a lot of time to simplify the design because with this type of car I believe less is more. Standard bearings, coilovers, hyme joints, and bolt sizes will make it go together a lot better and if i start racing it or sell a couple to those who do it will require less spare parts and tools to work on it. Price for the first one is going to be pretty steep but once the jig and I have the list of actual material and parts it will take to re-produce it should drop about 30-40% to make the next one. Also I will have more bugs fixed by then if I need to make revisions during the build process.
I can give you a lil math though
Bugatti Veyron has 1046hp at 4100 lbs
So it has about 523hp per ton power/ weight ratio
Subreal Atom will have 450hp at about 1100 lbs
So it should have a power/ weight ratio of about 816hp per ton
Basically it will be fast.... Really Fast....
Eventually when my wrist gets better I will finish my Forester and start on this when my Garage is free. I'll built a full roller with a jig to make a couple more and then hopefully sell the 2 extras so buy the donor parts. I have a blown STi longblock and a 5mt to use for fab. The rest will be made from scratch so... Don’t give up on me.
Here is the current project I’m working on... But due to a broken wrist from a car accident I have to take the winter off to heal so I will be back on the Foz to finish it and start this...
Once I get more time to sit down and take my drawings and get them into CAD with the suspension system I have already finished I will start posting again so we can discuss the project before I start throwing money at it. I really want to make something that works well and maybe make a couple more and sell em to help pay off the original project...
