I meant to post this after US Nationals and kept forgetting. Most locals have never seen a "real" A-Modified car. This is the class that has a pax factor of in your raw time is your pax time. In simple terms every other pax number is a derivative of A-Mod. In theory A-Mod is the absolute fastest that a car can get around a course.

We're talking tube frame, massive wings, insane power to weight and ludicrous grip. No fear and some seriously good reaction skills are also mandatory. Take all those factors, a bunch of money and some serious engineering know how and you get this.....

Yes - he is exceeding 80 mph.

Yes - he is exceeding 10,000 rpm

P.S. I look forward to the day when Mr Wellwood retires and has lots of spare time ;) ...

Winning A-mod takes more money than I make.


Building an affordable but adequately quick A-Mod is on my list.

I was doing open track days at Spokane for a few years, with the Miata getting more and more radical (trying to get enough cooling, mostly). I was spending so much time wrenching on the Miata that I wasn't making any progress on the Westfield, so I sold the Miata to a guy in Calgary who was wanting to do time trials with it. Sadly, I've been fairly extensively stalled on the Westfield, and I'm not flexible enough to kick my own butt to get going on it! It will get done, 'though. I just take longer than SkinnyG.

Here's the A-Mod video from US Nationals this year. Same driver, same car that I linked previously......just a whole lot more rain on the day one runs. Looks like fun.......if you aren't afraid of drowning :shock:

Make sure the video starts at the beginning for the wet runs - for some reason it randomly starts in the middle sometimes.....
