    Who is this?

    The difference between this guy and me is when the rear end gets all squirly from the tires breaking free, I let off the gas

    That, and he's driving on the right-hand side of the road.

    That's one fast Atom. Yikes.

    Sequential shifter? I notice the gear number is on the display. Very cool.

    I'd really like to know who this is, too... and invite him to join us on the forum.

    The non-embedded version of the video says "Built by Real Street Performance, Orlando Fl."

    That Valentine 1 is going to leave a mark when it hits the driver in the head after departing the dash when hitting a pothole at speed.

    Those displays are available for the Ecotec cars, too. A bunch of people have these.

    The noise is just his 20PSI of boost needing somewhere to go. It isn't a servo shifter from Flexopneumohydroservosystematization & Control. (Click on the na04flexo.mp3 link on that page to hear the "commercial".)

    I thought that's what the helmet was for?

    Not trying to be a hater but....

    I think that's an atom 3, honda powered car (at the end of the video you can see the dash go to 6th gear). And while the car is fast, it's got a problem... too big of a turbo IMO. Or rather, too laggy. Its fun having the car that way, but see how the car goes from spooling up to spinning the tires (like seconds later?) The tac is about halfway up the RPM band before he gets any power, and then its all of the sudden, right now, spin the tires.

    A car like that on the track is no fun.. I've been there, don that. You can't get any speed coming out of a corner, you're either out of boost, or so deep into boost the car spins.

    (and yes, part of this is me being a hater.. my car is still in pieces but the missing piece to make it all work is in route)
