TLDR: Nocones is building a challenge car.  Expect it to fail spectacularly. 

From the first post.

This car went from being abandoned at a storage facility, to spending way too much time in my shop doing nothing, to hanging from your rafters as ceiling art....

..to Challenge glory!

I'm so excited for you!!  Fantastic job!!

Well done, sir! Cannot wait to see it evolve next year!

A lot of talking and minimal action video debrief is posted.  It includes a random autox run from inside the car.  I'll do more exterior shots and design details in a later video but I wanted to unload my stream of consciousness while it was fresh.  

So enjoy 15 min of me talking to see a 60 second ride along.

Thanks again for all the support.  It helps keep me motivated.  I'm itching to get back in the garage and get going on V2 for 2022.

Fantastic, all around! How heavy is that target on your back? LMP360, with another year of development, is the car to beat in 2022. Hands down.

indeed...but it that thing living on the rev limiter 1/2 time or is that a sound thing?  If it spend that much time on the limiter I've got to believe there was another second or so to be had.

Well Done!  Very cool car!

When you figure out that rev limit thing,and a proper suspension tune,  this is going to be evil-fast. 

I also now know why the drag strip run looked and sounded the way it did since you seem to have pedaled it all the way.

Loved the build ever since the "You gonna do what with what?" start , right up to the arrival at the Challenge against all odds.

I just want to take this opportunity to say that I used to always confuse nocones with NOHOME but now I got you two separated in my mind.

I made one of those "full build in short time" videos.  It won't be new for those if you that have followed along but I did keep the budget live in the video which is fun.  

Also in preparation for this I reviewed the budget in great detail and found I had made a $45 mistake.  In the good direction.  Yay!

Again this is just amazing. The fab skills, the creativity, the documentation, videography. Totally amazing, so few people in the world could pull something off like this. Thanks again for taking us all along for the ride.

I love the vid, it's great to see the continuity from inception to event, and the running budget tally was really cool.
