Active aerodynamics on RX-7 at TWS Lemons race

Feb 11 2012 7hr Lemons race at TWS This is the sickest air brake you have ever seen. It has 2 pneumatic rams that raise a piece of plywood to act as an air brake. It is operated by a valve on the Ebrake. 2 air compressors maintain pressure in the system....and since apparently its too much load to try to run on the RX-7s electrical system there is just a generator bolted to the back that runs on its own fuel constantly while the car is on track. The car also features a smoker grill with the Exhaust passing vertically through it on the back bumper so that you have slow roasted grub by the end of the race!

Chasing #35 240Z in #996 Spec Piñata at LeMons TWS 02/12/2012
Team Facebook page - Picture of car on front straight - ontStraightFlag.jpg This is the 2nd Spec Piñata appearance for LeMons. First was at ECR in December 2011. TWS was a blast, and I was fortunate enough to find a couple of similarly fast cars both stints I drove. This video is of me chasing down the #35 240Z...which was fun because they were quite a bit faster on the straights.
