Hang on to your hat ! This was an entertaining run up the 58th annual Knox Mountain Hillclimb. Thanks to Forcefed Performance for the building , tuning, and maintenance on this very potent 20b 3rotor turbo powerplant stuffed 7 inches back in a 1993 mazda rx7 roadrace car.

Super cool and very quick, but "NOPE, NOPE, NOPE" on hill climbing. Just hate the thought of pitching over the edge.

The Knox Mountain Hillclimb is quite famous and well known in the Pacific Northwest and that time is pretty stout. Good work and driving.

+1 to what Eric said.

Wauter must have bigger, harder brass ones that I will ever have.

Looking forward to your next race vid

I will skip Rose Cup as it is now a srf event and the big bore cars are just a small race sideshow. Hopefully in the future we can get more super fast cars to enter and have a good race again.

Bummer.

But yeah, there used to be more exciting racing.

SRF can be exciting, but I think you have to be in the car for that...

Nice! Wish I was there with the rest of my FSAE team, but I decided to go camping instead. Could have seen this beast in person.
