A-Modified

Postby Brain » Wed Sep 28, 2016 11:20 am

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 1.000.....as 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.

Nevertheless.....

Building an affordable but adequately quick A-Mod is on my list.
Lethal Locost - street legal roller skate
Fiendish Firefly - 5lbs of engine in a 1lb bag
Crusty Chevy - shortboxed and dropped, potato potato

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.
