New car, the Phoenix replacement

Postby jeffw » Mon Sep 18, 2017 9:23 pm

Not even a little bit kitcar, my new car is a Zeus prototype powered by a Mussett Racing MR1500T.

Do I need to make that space available for the Phoenix this weekend?

Can we guess?

Weight = sod all
Power = too much
G's....I would pass out (probably after soiling myself)

Did I get it right Jeff :lol:

Can't wait to come and have a look around it :D

Car and engine are being refreshed so the engine will be effectively brand new (and the turbo) as well as all the rosejoints. Chassis has only done 3 races in its life.

Weight 550Kg
Power 620BHP in current high boost mode although it will probable go to 700 later
corner G will be 2.5 ish

That looks nice. Don't think I could have one though... I'd have to delete all the car related excuses from my (extensive) list.

How will that compare to the other machinery at the top of the sprinting paddock? Is your desire to have 2 seats a compromise and going to put you at a disadvantage or will it be a match for the single seaters?

Doesn't actually have two seats....the cockpit is too small.

As to how it performs...don't know yet. It will be behind the Goulds with the Judd V8 engines and in front of a bunch of the other single seaters (hopefully)
