That is pretty neat looking. I like more than a Caterham. Congrats!
Building up the car was a separate issue and really stupid financially. For eample, we upgraded the Penske cannisters to the latest ones at a cost of over $2000 in September. I will never get that back. The goal was always to build up the fastest SCCA legal car for autocross in its class. I think we have done that, and we were continuing to do that.BLUE FALCON!
So did you build the Elise with the intention of selling at some point, or did you just suddenly decide you wanted a new car?
Either way, big congratulations!
We are still planning on doing exactly that. For now, the new car will be my Lotus of sorts and I hope nobody minds me not having a real Lotus. It will be cool to see the 2-Eleven and this car in the same place...not to suggest the cars are comparable, but they serve a similar purpose.I always wanted a 7
I am looking forward to seeing it:up:
On a side note, you should plan a Club111 or whatever it is called now auto cross for the spring and then we can all drool over your new ride:clap:
We have discussed a windshield design with the company, but as noted, the Ariel Atom does not have one.I think it needs a windshield and wiper to be street legal (depending on state, but NY adopts many of CA's standards) That's one of the reasons a Caterham is slightly easier to legalize than an Atom
This is why they teamed up with Adrenalin Motorsports and one of the guys (Dave) that was instrumental to the Lotus Elise chassis. There was a lot of design work into the suspension and chassis using CAD.Good luck with the Toniq. It makes sense since you are starting a new business. But the challenge with those lightweight high power cars is to get the chassis tuning right. Something Caterham has done for some 35years. When you get the chassis sorted out, this thing will fly!
