In regards to Taylor Petersons Buggy, I heard this might debut at this race there were many long nights of engineering and design work put into this.As you can see it is an early prototype but expect to see much more coming from the TPRM engineering team.

I'm a BIG Jim Hall fan!


Google the Chaparral 2E for those wondering. Check out how the wing worked.

Also check out the Chaparral 2J, next we'll have cooling fans mounted through the chassis!

Hm, why didn't I think of that?

I can see it now, a TC with a massive cooling fan mounted under the speedo (instead of over it) with a hole in the chassis below it so it draws air up from under the chassis, over the speedo and then out the back. Not only keeps the speedo cool, but provides a nice little downforce edge too

"What does the Jesus fish do?"

eneryracing;

Good question. To a guy like me, that little decal on Ty's car signifies that I'm definitely not alone in my spiritual journey. Ty Tessman, and myself and many others who have trusted Christ, have a long and wonderfull future to look forward to. (and that's just scraping the surface of all the positive implications)

I would get banned for posting it up here but this reminds me of the classic George Carlin bit about weather vanes.

I've got a cardboard box and a 2 fans if anyone wants to purchase some wind tunnel time!

The oscillating fan feature will cost extra though!


Who's gonna be the first manufacturer to step up?

with the amount of dirty air coming off of the front shocks/towers and exposed suspension, coupled with the low speed of buggies, i would love to see a windtunnel test between bodies on cars. also, the size of the fins being used are not near large enough to actually make a difference with the speeds we drive at. I am sure it makes mental improvements though.

Tp's body was hillarious though.

All i know is that when my wing broke off in the a main, i had no rear traction and couldnt make a single jump without doing a front flip. Lol so who knows maybe thes little fins might improve the handling... the photographers around the track looked bored so my man rick put some fins on and we took it to tech.... Fun times!

your wing is also mounted up high above the buggy, and is HUGE.
