Mid Engine Single Seater

Mid engine, single seat vehicle. Built from scratch. (not a Kit) How this car came to be: Three years ago my wife left Des Moines for Cedar Rapids, Iowa. She was driving a 1994 Chrysler LHS. She had her trusty cell phone and she had triple "A" (gold) with 100 mile towing. There was only one slight problem, there was a slight water leak in the cooling system. My twin sons were riding with her. They were eleven. My sons told me the story. According to them trouble started about twenty miles from Des Moines. That's when the red dash lights and bells started. She answered those warnings by pressing down harder on the accelerator. Later the car answered back with a loud knocking sound. She stomped harder on the gas. "Half a league half a league, Half a league onward, All in the valley of Death Rode the six hundred: 'Forward, the Light Brigade!" Then the knocking sound and the vibration seemed to double. "It sounded like two drummers having a drum battle" according to one of my sons. I noticed a sort of glazed look in the eye of my other son. He said there was a lot of smoke coming out the back of the car. "Theirs not to make reply, Theirs not to reason why, Theirs but to do & die, Into the valley of Death Rode the six hundred. " I asked my wife why she didn't use the cell phone and triple "A" gold towing option. It seems that because we had all been to her sister-in-laws funeral the day before, she just knew that the dead woman's spirit would get her through this difficulty. So she just gave it a little more gas and pressed on. "Cannon to right of them, Cannon to left of them, Cannon in front of them Volley'd & thunder'd; Storm'd at with shot and shell, Boldly they rode and well, Into the jaws of Death, Into the mouth of Hell Rode the six hundred. " Finally, they did get the Cedar. But the car didnt quite make it all the way home. When the little lady slowed to leave the interstate at the Cedar exit, the car died and could t get up. "When can their glory fade? O the wild charge they made! All the world wonder'd. Honour the charge they made! Honour the Light Brigade, Noble six hundred! " I found that I could sell the car to the junk yard for $150. Repair it, or get really upset about it. So I repaired it. While repairing the engine I found that it had a single overhead cam with roller rocker bearings, four valves per cylinder, and hemispherical combustion chambers. Also it had a very short transaxle and the engine was positioned for to aft, not side to side. I was going to just put the car back together (I really was) but with the engine / transaxle sitting on the floor I realized that I was looking at something very similar to a formula 1 power plant. That's when I decided to design and build a mid-engine, single-seater. It's a work in progress and probably always will be. It has been fun to design and build, and even more fun to drive (I would imagine).
