Basjoos: any updated pics of the rear after the accident?
I could of sent a PM but it would be cool for everybody to see the pics. I read the thread and I think I've seen one new pic of the new rear. Got any pics of the updated rear?

He re-did the boattail and posted some pictures. They are in his post on the wreck.

Someone made a comment about the shape of the boattail looking sleeker. I noticed it as well - and not just from one angle. He says it is the same as before, but some how it looks 'sleeker'. ( He also added side lights. )

I would love to see someone take a video of some tuft test on that car.

I saw a really hard to see picture of the car on the road that was posted. The car looks really good on the road. It would be interesting to see how the car looks on level pavement vs. grass ( especially from down low - to see how the underside makes a kind of ventauri (< misspelled ? )

Heck of a crumple zone!

Such a shame to see that, but sure seems to absorb impact well!

It has a calculated top speed of 140mph when you plug Cd, frontal area, hp, etc. into one of those race car calculation formulas. I've had it up to 100mph. It had plenty of power at that speed and the wind load was just starting to become obvious.
