Gratuitous Porsche Pics

I run a Yamaha R1 powered lotus 7 style car and i agree with the article above , the sound of a high revving motorcycling engine at 13000rpm is just bliss and also having to constantly work the engine above 6000rpm to keep in its power curb adds to the fun ,,,I am a huge fan of the ultra light weight cars eg under 500kg wet with driver and 200bhp bike engine , they are cheap easy to maintain and reliable as hell, amazing little engines . the R1 motor and gearbox I use weighs in at 65kg and produces 180hp form 998 cc at 12750 rpm , Amazing numbers for such a small compact engine ...In 13 years of sprint racing I have only destroyed one engine and replaced it the following weekend in a few hour with another low Klm wrecker motor for $2500 , they are a great thing ...

Car has done

1.42.561 lap time at SMSP GP 

and 1.05.071 at Wakefield park 

 

Photo Turn 1 SMSP at around  200kph hold it flat to the floor in 6th gear until the 50 meter braking marker at turn 2 :Chuckle2:

Sounds like a huge amount of fun.

I find this kind of concept / work intriguing.

Apologies went a bit off topic!!

Because the car is open cockpit exposed to elements and basically a 1000cc go kart it is sensory overload to drive ,200kph in exposed to roar of wind feels crazy fast, after a days competing in the MNR ,if I went home and drove the 997 that night ,the Porsche felt like a steam roller at 1400kg,s ,the MNR weighs in at under 400kg,s with out driver so every thing about it feels hyper sensitive to drive ,the car is purely track focused but and would be terrible to drive on a public road but they really are a lot of fun and cost effective to race or do track days with  ...

I was not sure that I would like her doing that on my Porsche but then gave it a second thought and threw a complete 180.  Yep, I absolutely would say yes to her doing that on my car.

A large bird slammed into it, or the airbags went off unexpectedly

Chick like that would probably weigh 45 kg devide that by the centermeters of area x weight per sq centermeter and its placed weight not impact, So if the windscreen cracked its not much of a car. : )

Comes down to clumsy climbing skills.
