Highly developed chassis with a lot of data/video available thanks to Savannah Race Engineering.
Extremely reliable car after we worked through some small issues

All of the issues that aided in un-reliability in the chassis have all been removed- rear upper control arm tie-rods are fixed; Re-routing of cables and wires to prevent rub, unwanted stresses, or possible weak points have been done; alternator and battery upgraded to no longer worry about voltage drops under higher electrical loads; no more exhaust restrictions with 2 different ways for exhaust exit; proper channeling of air through the body work and out the back to gain highest levels of downforce while keeping heat build up to a minimum; rear wing mounts have been fixed to prevent cracking on the mount to wing; rear wing to gearbox mounts have also been fixed and stabilizers added to prevent flexing and breaking of mounts on the gearbox, and shocks have proper valving and gas pressures to be 100% functioning. The car is solid. At the SCCA Sebring short course this year we lapped the entire field after starting both days in 3rd on old tires. We did not have a good showing at the Roebling Majors race due to a Hoosier tire that gave up on us in it's 2nd heat cycle (during the Saturday race) and our competitor had body work fly off the car and he didn't race on Sunday. The car has been extremely fast when raced with NASA, SVRA and HSR, regularly finishing ahead of cars that should be faster than us.
The car was ran for the last time at Roebling Road 9-26/27 where it finished 2nd overall behind a unrestricted Formula Atlantic and ahead of another unrestricted Formula Atlantic. I'm also the 2020 SARRC P1 Champion.Contact Seller »
