  1. I have now released a picture of my car 
    #1
    Hi,

    my extremely aerodynamic car is almost complete

    After many many hours in the garage and outside in 30 deg C heat
    the car is taking its shape.
    The shape of my car is not like a "normal" race car but more like
    a rocket/airplane combo/mix.

    Cd is approx 0.2.

    Frontal area is a bit large but as we have the motor between the wheels
    the car needs to be this wide. A compromise was made.

    There is still a full weeks work on the interior of the car.

    A picture from my 3D CAD sysrem has generated a file that Deep Explorer has rendered. You can see the car at:

    Extreme Speed Electric RC CAR

    Are you referring to the metallic yellow UFO on the home page?

    man, if I had a digital camera, I'd have done that same pic...was thinking about it, but had a different object in mind...the plastic applicator from tampax.

    Sure, there is a car! It is the UFO as you say.

    It is the car. I am dead serious.

    The body as you see on the image is now in my garage!

    Still can't make out much of the car, there seems to be a bit much 'background noise'...

    As far as I can make out something it is flying, that doesn't qualify it as a car as far as I know!

    Curious what the inside looks like!

    You released a computer image of the body... why not post an actual photo... or at least show us where the rolling gear will protrude.

    ...chuckle... Good one, HM.

    That thing is now looking more like a boat than a UFO for some reason.

    Sig, put some wheels and tires on that thing, will ya?

    The wheels do not show that much. They are hardly visible. Wheel are hidden behind the sides for lowest drag.
    Here's another one:

    Yeah, you're right...those wheels don't show much at all.

    No shadow, either... that's a scary piece of Extremfart equipment you got there, dude.

    HM...that has to be the quote of the month!! God, I'm still laughing about that one. It's a really good thing I don't own a digital camera, I'd get myself in more trouble going through this one.

    If you turn it up too high, it might produce an extremfart.

    Sig,

    What CAD program are you using? Also, didn't I see somewhere that you're from Sweden?
