Sweet baby jesus, this car is sexy. I find the P1 to be slightly over the top aesthetically so this 650S ticks all the right boxes in my book.
Now if I could just win the lottery :p

I'm quite a tall guy(like mr Aasbo around 196cm) but I drive a Miata/Roadster which is a small/narrow car. Do you have any seats, prefarrably hardback, that will fit the car without having the holes for the shoulderstraps dangerously low?
Thanks in advance!

@neurite @Jason0110 @speedhunters_dino Most of the stuff engineers do in windtunnels is confirmation tests to see if the stuff they calculated and envisioned to be aerodynamic are actually that. It helps a lot with the final tweaking but most of the work is done inside the heads(and computers nowadays) of the engineer.
I helped build a prototype EcoMarathon(fuelefficiency race) car that was designed to be aerodynamic using flow simulations and rough calculations by hand in excel before it was tested in a windtunnel. The cost to start up a windtunnel is already 10k euro's and another 5k per 30min. And this is a small one, not large enough to fit a whole car ;)

@speedhunters_dino @BrockHarvison @fairlady432 Same here, page comes up blank.
Had the same with your R34 story just after the site maintenance, maybe the story was moved to a different location and the website can't find the story that belongs to the URL?

Nice to see how passionate Vaughn is about his cars! I'm not too fond of the modern Mustangs but I've got to say that this one looks pretty sweet :)

@Spaghetti Both the Liberty Walk ánd the RB/TRA Kyoto kits are designed by Miura-san but Liberty Walk is as said not his own company. He designed kits for BenSopra too.

@BannedAndFurious @Dynames Which more people should know about and do because it's annoying as hell to get blinded by the person behind you, especially by the newer VAG cars with their ultra bright Xenon!

Let's see if I can get my rolls of film developed in time for the deadline, there's some inspirational stuff in there(to me at least) :)

@Taryn Croucher @westhave Thanks a lot! I might be able to hire a car, that'd give me more flexibility(especially if it's really onle 27hrs top to bottom). I'd like to visit the D1NZ or something related but most of all just experience the country(and the nerd in me wants to visit Wellington :o )
I'll look at the options when the time comes but for now, thanks again and maybe I'll be able to spot a sweet and low Datsun :)

Taryn or other NZ based readers; If I wanted to visit NZ next year December, what area would you advise me to go to? Probably won't have more than a week or so(budget...) Thanks!
Now this is a very well executed build, hats off to ECi!

@YBYAV8 Standing mile, hah.... gaaayyyy. But seriously, what is it with people bragging about how quick they go up the strip. Since when is comparing a dedicated dragcar to a full option luxury Brabus a fair comparison? :p

@Jake Laird Does an LS go BWWAAAAAAAAAAAPPPPPP *spit massive flame* BWWAAAAAAPPPPPPP. No? Thats what I thought.
The LS engine is a brilliant engine in its own right but there are certainly more things in life than "AMERICAN power and torque". A V8 RX-7 drives very well and the choice is quite logical for a driftcar but it does feel very odd sitting in an agile sportcar and hearing a pick-up truck every time you touch the throttle!

I'm waiting for a version that is uni colour before I can decided whether or not I like the design. Some angles seem a bit strange and the car looks very tall when looking from the rear, but most of that is deception of the eye I think.

@Boof If you're on a PC, connect an external monitor and then hit the "Microsoft" button + P. You now have the ability to duplicate or expand your Desktop. Choose expand, then go into LR an undock the collection library(I believe you can just grab the top left corner and move it) and move it to the right out of your primary screen and onto the secondary one ;)
