  • Introducing Crusher

    Some of you have already seen pics of our new enduro car. Just wanted to post a few more detailed pics for those that are interested.

    The car is built specifically for the NASA 25 hours at Thunderhill Dec 3-4. It's an E2 car mapped from PTD. The VVT engine is purpose built, tuned exactly to the 148whp we are capped at for the class power to weight ratio.

    The car's job is to gain the most track position for the least amount of fuel. Within that, the car must be able to run hard for 25 hours, at night, in the rain. It needs to be easy to diagnose and service. It needs to have the best possible safety equipment.

    The car has no fuses or relays, instead relying on a solid state power switching unit, the Smartwire by Racepak. The fuse box you see in the engine bay is empty. Just an emergency spot to tap into hot leads in the engine bay should the need arise. The little box on the tunnel below the shifter is a Racepak USM (Universal Sensor Module) for our fuel level sender.
    We were fiddling with the capacitor for the sequential COP conversion, hence the electrical tape (orange!) sliced open there. ESS Automatic fire system not completely installed in this photo.

    More details on the build can be found on our blog; Behind the Wheel.

                Congrats! I've seen this car twice in person now and it is very well prepared.

                Good seeing you and crew on Friday Emilio.

                  The car drives like a kart. Made my vette feel like Richard's windowless van.

                  After grenading my motor, I seriously considered turning to the "Light Side."

                    Not I. Last year's 25 has me wanting at least another year before I do that craziness again.

                            Just out of curiosity for next year possibly, what are your requirements, and what does a seat cost?

                              you are on the team !!! just ask us.

                              as for requirement - you need to be: crash less than Burgoon, not heel-n-toe like Red_5, not foul mouthed like Sonny, whine less than Emilio, saw steering wheel less than Manly (oh, wait, that's actually fast, nevermind), break things less than Hakeem. oh, you must know BW #13 inside out.
