SuperGeek Pictures, what do you all think?
 
Hey everyone!

I have been lurking for over 6 years...listening and learning...and figure it's time to share what I have been tinkering on for that entire time.. I call it the SuperGeek (pun intended), an enclosed ultralight that I hope will take the record for fuel economy this year... We have been through a few engines (Honda Twinstar, Lifan 125, Honda CBF125) and now are finally working with the Ninja 250. Please take a look and tell me what you think of it?

Have a great day!

Ray Vaughan

Welcome to the site Alien Vehicles. That is quite the fun looking project you have there. We would love to hear more about it, mileage, how it handles, etc.

Thanks Doax :-)

Well, the last run was only 72 Mpg...which was horribly lower than I expected. We have been through a couple of trials... The last time, the CBF125 (EFI) went off the reservation and was pouring gas in at 10:1. We are bolting in the Ninja 250 this week, and expect it to run much more reasonably (Hyperrocket @160mpg?). As we are so aerodynamic (about .089), and lightweight (About 355 Lbs), we should be able to get the numbers right on up to something respectable pretty quick.

The Geek topped out at about 69 Mph the last run...and averaged 60 mph for 107 miles, I think... 69 was interesting, but 60 is really fun. It is really nimble now that we have got the front geometry settled down (Runs close to neutral). It was "Interesting", trying to hold it when we first started road work with too much toe!!

I'm 6'4" and 210lbs, and it's really comfortable for me inside. I don't want to ramble... It has a Facebook Page (Alien Vehicles) that you can checkout (And like/follow, please?) to see what we are doing day to day! :-)

That's finished product that Elio had to pare down to so they could meet that 7,200 buck target price

Hahahahaha!!! Elio...sucks. Paul Elio...sucks harder. Considering our first measured run was 72 mpg, we are well past his capability....and that was always the idea :-)

I will eventually get to a "Door slammer", but have a few models to build before that (Since I don't plan to cut a car in half and put a Geo engine in it,,,or wait till the 325 million hits my mailbox :-)

The Geek was purpose built to break records, mpg and distance. The goal for later this year is to drive coast to coast on about 15 gallons of gas.

The heavier duty model we are working on now (Vortex) will still run over 100mpg, city or highway!

(No frills Elio...tough crowd!):eek:

Nice work! :thumbup:

There is much potential there.

Thank you, Frank!

True. But if you find a young designer that knows Solidworks and ask them to design a few stick-on bits to plug the gaps and use a two-tone colour scheme I think it will come up much better.

Of course, to old timers such as myself, it could be interpreted futuristic :thumbup: even though it's not. Hey, if it works, that's what counts.
