Interesting! - A Super-7 for the 21st century.
I've enjoyed watching DP's development stages.
Tempting as a dedicated track-mobile!
Know if any competition is planned for the beast?

that was only the car's third lap ever
on a full-size track, with one of our own mcoupers (Karl) at the wheel and being very cautious. with some seat time and tuning i think Karl can find another 15 seconds out there. he is faster than me but i got a couple more laps this day (literally). on my 7th lap i did a 1:58 flat (the video lap is 2:02) still without pushing too hard so the car has plenty more in it. my wife got into 2:01s in 5 laps later in the afternoon.
the goal for this first outing was to get the car out there, have a few different people drive it, see what needs work, etc. i'm pleased with how it went. now tuning and tweaking can begin.

Re: thanks! :) it has taken a while...
Hey dp! haven't been able to keep track of your progress in awhile but the dp4 looks and sounds awesome. May be someday when I get a real job... When you're down in the Bay area, let me know. I'd love to come out and say hi and check out your new stuff. I think I'm on call on 7/9-11 tho...sucks!

I'll be there on Saturday
Just to see your creation in action. Will bring my DSLR and big lens for some action shots. Might have a few other coupers with me :O)
