Vertigous XR

Hey, totaly inspired by Hunta/Grumpys Ariel I decided to try and make a superlight track car. At first I thought about making a caterham R500 but I just don’t really like it (you’d have to be a cock or something to drive it)

So I just started out without any refs and thought about what I’d like to have in a superlight superfast car. The concept I had in mind was, “ok, so I want to drive a bike, but I want 4 wheels”. And this is what I ended up with.

weighs in at 277 props (should be around 290-300 when finished)
Weight: around 700
Top speed: 155+ mph (250ish kmh)
downforce at 150 mph: around 750
0-60(100 kmh): about 3 seconds
In raise with nothing else on SS (sax server): 350ish.

I know the video fucking sucks cause I rushed it and it came out crap, but at least its a video. Don’t mind the whole aesthetic part of the suspension popping through.

Saw it 5 sec ago on Sex, the back is damn sexy.
Also OLOLO I M ON PICS 1 2 AND 3

Edgy, I liek. Edges make things sexy. As long as it’s not a box.
What’s with lack of wheel connection to body :V

That’s where the remaining 30 or so props will go :stuck_out_tongue:

Dammit, I love Caterhams >_<

anyway, that looks really awesome, edgy but still sleek

It looks like it could use some tighter suspension by the the video, and maybe a little added weight- to keep it from hopping around so much.
But I liek it

Don’t forget the steering wheel pack

Yeah, but I was trying to keep the weight down on it. Like minimum. Anyway I was experimenting some more with it and I added some more downforce to it and gave it a better turning angle.

O.o it turned out great. Come to New Zealand and make a baby for Grumpy.

Ahhhh yeah, saw this on sax’s. Wicked awesome, got to drive it… It is rather hard to get used to, but still awesome… Also, is it thruster powered or wheel?

thruuusssssstreeeeeeeeeeerrrrrrrrrrrrrs. that’s why you can go fast.
