EH not MY cars but these are the TEAM cars.. i build and desgin and soon(next week ) drive these cars at uvic with the FSAE team Forumla society of automotive enginners
now FSAE is a competetion between all the universitys around the worl who wish to participate.. currently there are clos to 300 universitys in the program... there are many rules but simply put you got to build a race car that is restricted, 4 wheel irs, and 610cc.. 4 stroke and thats it.. turbo,supercharged, NA it doesnt matter.. soo you are judged on your cars performance in dynamic events such as skid pad, slalom and endurance
(22km LOL) university of victoria has been involved since 2002, and last year at formula student the competetion in england came in 11th overall and 7th in endurance(not many finish it).


alot of northamerican schools get unlimitedfunding we however are luck to get much funding at all from the school... but they are quite supportive nonethe less.. anyhow enough yak.. here are the pictures..! everything on this car is CUSTOM except the engine.. we dont have the money to get a decent rebuild..we use stock suzuki 600 motors.

the blue and red car are the same chassis and have 105horses unrestricted, 4 mikuni carbs, and 550ish pounds wet0-60mph in 3.5 seconds
the black car is 470lbs and about 70-80horse but it is alot faster than the older car was while it was restricted.. BTW our resitrictor is 20mm in diamter ONE resistrictor..... these cars have seqential 6speed wet clutchs.. the same ones as the motor bike for obvious reasons.. they have 7inch wide slicks and we can still spin(if we are having fun) in 5 gears...and we have a torsen ATB rear diff
right now we are designing a new chassis and we are turbocharging the car with a garret gt12 turbo... with some good softcompound tyres we should be able to demolish our previous acceleration times... soo between three merkurs and these three cars and school i somehow find time to eat

also we are making a carbon fiber body right now for the new car
