Chassis and body

The starting point of the chassis development was a 1989 Porsche 944 Turbo. The original roof, windshield surround, door surrounds, trunk surrounds, rear valance, and door sills/rocker panels were retained. Lexan windows and rear hatch were installed. The front fenders, nose and hood are fiberglass as well as the rear bumper and rear ground effects. The tube chassis and suspension mounts were constructed of 4130 alloy steel. The engine has been moved back 15" towards the center of the car. The chassis was built with a flat bottom from the nose to the rear and has a diffuser at the tail. The floor is reinforced honeycomb material. The front splitter is also constructed of honeycomb material. The rear wing was built according to IMSA specs. The battery has been relocated to the passenger's side compartment in the cockpit. Custom interior aluminum panels allow easy access to the rear suspension, transmission and fuel system. The car weighs approximately 2100lbs wet.

 

 

 

Suspension and Steering

Spherical bearings and AN aircraft fasteners were used throughout the suspension. The front suspension points were modified for wider track and geometry correction. The rear trailing arms inner and outer suspension points were modified and are adjustable. This allows the car to be lowered without affecting the rear camber settings. The front lower control arms are made by Fabcar. New steel front hubs were machined and installed with new wheel bearings in 2009. The front and rear sway bars, made by Kelly Moss, are blade style and cockpit adjustable. Front camber plates made by Kelly Moss were also installed. The front dampers are Koni double adjustable coil over front struts. The rear dampers are Penske double adjustable coil over shocks with external reservoirs. Eibach springs are used on all corners.

 

The car has a manual steering rack with custom rod ends and bump steer kit.

 

 

Brakes

The brakes on all corners are "Big Red" Brembo calipers as on the Porsche 993TT models. The front calipers have modified pistons and use titanium shields for preventing brake fluid boiling. The front rotors are custom made with center hats and floating rings. The rear rotors are custom made with center hats and rings. Performance friction race pads. The brake hydraulics are made by Tilton with individual master cylinders for the front and rear brake circuits. Brake bias adjustable valve is installed in the cockpit. The front brakes have cooling ducts.

 

 

Engine and Fuel System

The engine is a 2.5L aluminum block with 8 valve aluminum head and was originally built by Eric Barrett. It has been improved with 7/16" ARP studs and silicone "O" rings to seal the coolant and oil passages. The block has been improved with pressed in iron cylinder liners. The bottom end has been improved by using a Moldex Billet crankshaft (installed in 2009) with forged connecting rods. The head has been improved by porting, flow matching and installing big valves along with a Dema Elgin camshaft. The turbocharger is a water cooled tangential type made by Turbonetics model T66 with ceramic bearing. Its charge is cooled by a 17 ½"x 16" triple size intercooler which is fully ducted.

 

The engine is control by a custom engine management system programmed by a PC

 

and software that comes with the car.

 

The headers and collector were fabricated from 321 stainless steel. The exhaust system is directed towards the rear of the passenger's side front fender.

 

The cooling system has a C&R custom radiator and oil heat exchange and it is fully ducted.

 

The oil system is a Peterson dry sump.

 

The fuels system consists of custom made fuel rail with pressure regulator and a custom fuel cell with 4 fuel pumps to ensure proper fuel supply.

 

The engine is producing 447 HP to the rear wheels

 

 

Drivetrain

The clutch is a Quartermaster 7 ¼" triple disc. Tilton pedals and clutch master cylinder. The transaxle has been replaced in 1998 with a newly rebuilt 6 speed manual unit from Porsche 968 model. It is equipped with a Quaife Torsen type differential. It has a custom oil cooling system with external electrical oil pump and distributed oil squirters over the gear stacks.
