    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?

    the plan is to homologate it for DSR

    but i see the best venue for it is hillclimbs and time trials, esp. in awd form. i was even contemplating pikes peak this year but they moved it up a month due to paving and we won't be ready. guess will have to run on full pavement next year :)

    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.

    That's in my neck of the woods, so keep us posted if you plan to be out this way.

    it'll have to be next year.

    no way we can be ready by end of the month...

    but next year i guess it's going to be all pavement so better for us anyway.

    What event is that? It was perfect weather there yesterday. Too bad I'm at home now instead of still there, my engine blew up *again*.--

    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!

    ORP is just east of the dalles on 84

    it's a very fun track and we can run it in either direction.

    Awesome!

    I've been following you since the beginning on your website - VERY cool that you followed through . . . refined and refined to make it right instead of being content with "good enough" - Looking forward to the future! Nice work.
