Hand-built LS1 MR track car

Attention tech-heads, here’s one for you. If you like CAD drawings, stress-tests, loading simulations, suspension pickup point design, and a whole bunch of other stuff that’s way over my head, then you’ll enjoy this build. This is one mans quest to design and build his own mid-mounted turbo LS1 powered track car over in Germany, reminding me a bit of the previously featured Bentley Speed 8 replica build.

Thanks to James from carthrottle.com for submitting.

SolidWorks Roadster

Finally back to our regular programming. RC submitted this one a while ago, a Factory Five AC Cobra replica built by some of the team at SolidWorks. I love seeing 3D CAD work in some of the more big-dollar builds, so it’s great to see the people behind the software building something for themselves. When I say ‘for themselves’ I should really say ‘by themselves’, as the car will be auctioned off with the proceeds going to charity. Teamwork, a cool car, and a good cause, all that good karma should spare them from any speeding tickets.
