I agree it seems like Lin is doing all kinds of stuff right now. He did the Speed UTV wiring harness and engine management, which from what I hear is pretty advanced for a UTV, with two engine tunes and E85 fuel sensing & programming. It’s funny this Alumicraft & the Speed UTV have allot in common. Both are at the top of the game with 4wd drivetrain designed by Albins, and both have James Lin management.Verizon and Wifi was no good in the shop so we got potato cam for some of it haha. Pretty rad car though im excited to see how it does! James Lin is a badass and he's got some trick stuff going on now days!
There are several reasons we run portals.So why do mason use the offset spindle hubs but this one and the Geiser do not? Is it for ground clearance like on crawlers?
Nye Frank built a 4wd class 1 car in 1998 way before the Rock Donkeys did it! It was IRS, with 750hp V8. I think it was early 2000, when Nick Baldwin & Robby Gordon raced and won a Score race in Vegas?Fact check on aisle 4...not even close to the 1st awd C1. Shannon built a desert only C1 Truggy in 2013(?), I raced the Baja 1000 and Henderson 250 in Class 1 in 2010 (often forgotten that we crushed the Baja 108, but everyone else was racing to La Paz so we didnt get the love lol), and Shannon raced his Ultra4 Car a bunch in 2009/2010. Codys car isnt the only IRS U4/c1 car either.
It might be the first C1 that runs a transaxle, but Rhys Millens AWD car has been around for a few years too with the smaller motor.
Cool car none the less.
