    Sweet!

    Some of yall know that my friends and I build a race car, if you don't know, then check us out here. http://www.odumotorsports.com

    Anyways

    We got four hours of run time in with the car tonight. We are usign the 05' ECU for a base map, we were having problems coming up with one without a Dyno on the 06' ECU. Our fuel filter was clogged to hell which was attributing to alllll sorts of problems we were having. We thought we might have been collapsing the rings with the vacuum our dry sump set-up is pulling, but it was the filter all along. We still need to look into the vacuum and possibly get a regulator for it. It ***** a lotttt

    Overall, this thing hauls *** and cuts like a mofo with just a base tune and semi-finalized suspension. We scraped our carbon fiber undertray down to the foam

    Oh yea, we broke it too

    Yay!!

    There are a lot of teams that are insprired by the old Fords. I don't much like the 05 cars body (one closest in the pic), this years car will be a lot longer, a lot lower and sleeker looking, much more like an F1 car.

    I would love to drive it as well. Unfortunately, we have been so busy just trying to get this one ready for competition that we have had no time to teach newer drivers, or even see if anyone can drive. To even qualify though you need to earn a certain time at the local AIK track. We had an unfortunate incident a few years back when an unexperienced driver wrecked and caused some damage.

    Well, when you can tilt the car on it's side at a 72* angle and have it balance itself, you can imagine what types of g's we can get into on a course

    Last years car was gear limited to 81mph (gsxr motor and gearbox), this years car will top out at about 111mph (cbrRR motor and box). Second gear tops out around 65MPH, and in the parking lots here at school, we are going through our home made auto-x at the top of second. 0-60 in this car has yet to be measured, but in the 05' car, we reached 60mph in something like 3.1 seconds.

    This years vehicle, including all estimated labor costs, estimated machine work costs and including the price we would have spent had we not won the cbrRR motor would be around $17,000. There are schools like University of texas at Arlington that spend twice that, anually.

    It is a school club. Many universities across the world have the club. Formula SAE competition for ths part of the competition is in 10 days, and around 140 universities will be attending. if you attend a university and are interested, check into it. I know some places it is a course, others, like ODU, it is simply a club that you join.

    By the way, the competition this year is at Ford proving Grounds, Romeo, Michigan

    Hell yea man, it is A LOTTTT of fun, and you learn so much. Honestly, not many people can say that they hand crafted a car from the ground up. Design and build the chassis, suspension, drivetrain, exhaust, intake, seat, body, rotors, brake system, gas tank. Even the **** throttle body is designed by us and a lot of it could have been machined by us had we received our Mill earlier in the year.
