Holy Crap!

Me and the team did testing for FSAE all day and were running skid pad and acceleration(simply how fast you can complete a 100 yard dash. I ran a 5.2 sec in skid pad and 4.2 sec on acceleration(In the formula car.) Then we all decided to have fun and run it in our own cars... Skip pad 6.1 and acceleration, and this is where I was surprised, 5 second flat.. Holy Crap! Just thought I would share

Did that make you feel better about yourself? Your really should find something better to do than get online and say stupid things like that. Even better find out information about a situation before you go cracking jokes. Oh and have a great day

If he likes the vents, leave him be.
But I'm still kinda confused Tanner, did you drive a formula 1 car?

I HATE THE VENTS!! I DID'NT PUT THEM ON!! lol sorry I have just been over this so many times. But yes I am part of Mizzou racing we build a Formula light car every other year and compete internationally around the world. It is very involved, we build the car completely except the engine which we highly modify. We buy noting pre-made the whole car started as piles of aluminum steel tubing and rolls of carbon fiber. I will be putting a pick in my sig when we get the decal skin on.

Yea it is a pretty amazing machine when you think 8 students built it from raw material and a year later it goes 0 to 60 in 3 flat and takes 2g corners like nothing

And yes that was me running Auto x however I run endurance during competitions. I am probably the worst guy at skid pad though because I like the pedal and the far right too much lol.
