Eight airplanes racing head to head around telephone poles in the desert. Mojave is the best place on the planet to build and modify a race plane, and Wasabi is lucky to have the best support in the business.

A trip to visit Klaus Savier

Hey guys,

I was fortunate enough to fly out to visit Klaus (link) at Santa Paula a couple months back.

That guy sure has a good time.

Besides letting me fly the Determinator, we spent several hours digging through his past experiments.

A personal favorite was his independent induction runner mod.  Which replaced the stock continental carb and spider with a rotatary slide throttle (shown below) and independent fuel injection.  Can you imagine if this kind of thing was legal in formula one?

Party on,
