    I'm maybe the closest Atom to you. I've never driven at High Plains Raceway but had that as a goal to accomplish this Summer. I was thinking around July. It'd be great to meet you.

    I hope you get you Atom back up and running strong.

    Thanks for sharing the details of your most interesting Atom. I'm particularly intrigued by your use of Airtabs. All of us know that the Atom has the aerodynamic efficiency of a block of cheese, so any improvements absent new body panels are welcome.

    RHoutris, would it be possible for you to show us the location of your other Airtabs - the ones forward of the wheels?

    Any ideas from other members as to where else and how many Airtabs might serve to improve our cars' aero?

    I am thinking that a block of cheese might have slightly better areo given that you don't have the turbulence of the tubes

    I like the headlights! Where'd you get them? How well do they work? Are they DOT approved?

    It reminds me of this one, only in black. These are also used on the RCR Superlite Roadster.
