Is the intake restricted due to the race series rules ? I would expect it goes well if you keep the revs up.

In the picture of the car in BR Green with people stood around it i'm the one in the grey hoody with the hood up. In the picture of a few people working on the white chassis i'm the one with my head up its arse.



It's a university project yea, it makes up half of our 4th year. Basically about 15 of us in 3 departments design, build and run the car at a competition each year. Usually its one car per season but we are on a two season cycle at the moment so this generation was at Silverstone last June and we have been responsible for basically tarting it up a bit and sending it to SAE West this summer while doing the conceptual design for the next generation simultaneously. I think its racing at Fontana, but we don't run on full size circuits or proper wheel to wheel racing. There are a few different events designed basically to test the car, coned out sections and things of that nature.


Dude I live 20 minutes from that track (Its called AutoClub Speedway). That's where the 2d AMA round is held. They have a kart track in the parking lot. Let me know when its there and I'll go out and take a look.

Here have a look at this for more information, we'll be the only British team there so we should be easy to spot. The autocross even is Friday afternoon and the endurance event is Saturday, spectating wise they should be the most entertaining.
