    We designed a new car, based on the Noble platform. The mechanical work is about 7 weeks till prototypes are done and then it's off for the new body work.
    The HVR will then return to the main shop for fabrication and mechanical work.

    The markets are much smaller and more saturated in this economy, so our business model is very simple as well.

    not enough to make any difference....
    the fan pulls 3500cfm which is more than the two single pull fans of the Noble.
    we've experienced 240dg. f oil temps on 100 dg.f days in race environment.

    Looks good! Is the gap between the tail lights (above plate cutout, below wing) designed to extract air from the engine compartment? I like the flared lip around the wheel arches. At least those who get passed will have a nice view

    The license plate area is still mesh. I was just playing around with the design and trying a solid panel. I'll make a final rendering and adjust the 3d model.

    In addition, the exhaust tips are just place holders. We can make customize anything a person requests just like on the Noble. We've made tons of one-off exhaust systems.

    The flares were to accommodate a wider wheel/tire package on both front and rear. It's about 3" wider body work. The "race" version has a different angle on the flare which is a little more parallel to the ground to allow for lower ride height. That option will be made-to-order for those that want a race only vehicle.

    Once I have, and we're getting close, a running version, I will attempt the SCCA homologation again. World Challenge is ok with the car and once we are nearing that stage, I will submit the paperwork and appropriate fees for review.
