What sets Carbinite LSR Ahead of the Crowd:
Past efforts and current mindset in building Streamliners has focused on keeping the car aerodynamically neutral (no lift or downforce). This necessitates the addition of significant amounts of weight in order to obtain enough traction for acceleration. Two problems have arisen since adopting this philosophy:
1 ~ The Bonneville salt conditions have deteriorated over the years. Therefore, the racing surface is no longer as flat as it once was. This causes the car to "skip" across the salt at higher speeds, breaking traction.
2 ~ The increased weight of the cars leads to slower acceleration. Cars may run out of track prior to reaching maximum speed.
The Carbinite LSR Streamliner design has addressed these problems. The Carbinite Streamliner is truly a unique despite the fact that it was loosely conceived from successful rocket car designs of the early seventies. The math and science behind Carbinite LSR does not lie. Lord willing, we will be successful.
As an extension of Carbinite LSR, we are visiting schools and educational programs across the country to get students excited about a future in math and science. This project showcases many skills and potential careers, including computer aided drafting, fabrication, engineering and more.
