RADBUL lays down some numbers

Posted in News

No it isn’t finished yet, but RADBUL is near completion and has finally laid down some solid numbers on PPRE’s own dyno after ‘Mad Mike’ Whiddett started the twin-turbo quad-rotor MX-5 for the first time. PPRE’s engineers have been going flat out in recent weeks, finalizing the chassis, driveline, suspension, brake, and steering modifications before the initial shakedown.

Check out the fifth instalment of ‘The Making of RADBUL’ to see the team try lay down a solid power run and turn the rolling road into smoke, before they switched to a grippier set of tyres and lay down a 769kW (1032hp) at the wheels run on a low-boost setting.

Let us know how much power you think RADBUL will make on high boost in the comments below.

Dutch, French, or just a Kiwi, René isn’t quite sure, but he does know he has a passion for Japanese vehicles like no other. A well-seasoned Gran Turismo player dating back to his single-digit days, René has a comprehensive knowledge of a wide range of performance vehicles and has owned more than 30 performance cars here in New Zealand, ranging from Nissans to Hondas. A lover of photography, you’ll find him either peeping under someone’s bonnet to snap a detailed shot, or on the side of the racetrack, perfecting his panning.
