If you can fit a V8 and associated gearbox in a non-stretched Elise, you could probably make a killing.

Rev is correct, of course

Chassis unchanged I would think, bespoke subframe to stretch the rear end though.

Done.

According to this Click

The Venom's entire body is handmade out of carbon fiber, save the original doors. Hennessey redesigned the entire front and rear subframes from scratch to support the longer wheelbase and weight of the engine

Now fueled by heavy oil...

Over fuelling to save the motor I would guess. Results in bore wash as unburnt fuel washes oil through etc.

Looks like it was overfuelling.

Edit: dammit, shouldn't have stopped to talk to the wife before hitting the button :lol:

I'd say it was the aero lifting the dust off the runway, as it didn't appear to be that bad from the reverse camera shot.

My car does this at high speed... If the road is wet, it creates an extremely impressive vortex that you don't want to be behind as you can't see anything with the amount of water it lifts off the road :lol:.

Nordschleife - there's only two barriers to worry about - the ones on the left and the ones on the right!

I'll respectfully disagree Mike, you can just about make out a gap in the smoke when he changes up, and its too dark to be dust shirley?

I'm okay with that, but how do you explain the rear view compared to the static camera view, as you can see the amount it overfuels from that angle, and that doesn't account for the amount of dust in the static view ;)?

Having seen LOADS of these kind of runs on airfields, this is the norm with any car that has even the remotest amount of aero. Shame there was no side view, as the rooster tail is spectacular :).

Next time it is wet and I'm out in the Cossie, I'll twist the camera around for a rear view, so you can see how much it lifts stuff off the road surface as the water gives a visual guide of what it is doing (and my aero is NOTHING as impressive as these kind of cars) :).

I would suggest the visual gap with the rear cam is simply the smoke/fumes not immediately reacting with the air on the outside world, creating a gap immediately behind the vehicle (along with aero effects pulling it all away violently of course) ?

Not that it matters either way, its still an impressive sight to behold :lol:
