I have been working on my idea of a exo Miada. Want to drive it at the track and street. This is the prototype. A better one will come later. I will get the car cleaned up from storge for some better pictures.

This looks like a cool project.

What's your projected weight savings?

Thank You, maybe you can help me with the right prop size for the Miada 4 banger motor? Since you have a eye for this type of design, maybe some ideas on dual or single plane hull???

Their will be a main hoop. safe roll bars are my thing for sure coming from the off road exo car world.


Not sure how much the weight will be for sure. I will add 1000 #'s to make it safe if I have to!!! Some exo cars have some poor frame designs.

Thank you, to the guys that see that I am just doing something my way. I will try and get more pictures soon.

I just got the frame completed and ready to make the jig. After I remove the frame I will cut all the extra sheet metal off the car.. I had to put the project on hold for some time now due to my partner had some cash flow problems. I have most of the parts to finish the car now. I hope to get it done this summer! I have been finishing my other projects. I will post better pictures after the frame is cleaned up. The jeep in the pictures. is one of my other projects.

But good news is, it would take a hydrogen bomb to bust through the rear end to rupture the gas tank. Bad news is if you happen to roll over...
