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
