The "Committee Car"
(The first US FST)
Here is the original "Committee Car"
on track in its race debut. Most everything performed as designed. Later
changes were made to the oiling and cooling systems. Final changes were
made to the engine specs and restrictor plate to place it into the speed
and performance ranges we wanted while keeping part prices, availability
and longevity good.
The car was built by Bill Bonow.
Engine by SR Racing and Transaxle by LRE.
The "committee car" is still running.
Here is the car on display at the 2002
Run-Off's at Mid-Ohio. The display got lots of attention and many
visitors with questions and suggestions. Most in support. It also brought
along its distracters, who saw it as a threat to Formula Vee fields.
A banner that displayed specs for the
original concept. Those concepts remain today and very little has
changed from the base rules package.
