Uploading pics doesn´t seem to work...is there a trick or am I just not smart enough? All the pics of that car is without the engine installed,at least the official pics from Remmele and the ones I took my self.Shortly after that pic with Kurt Thiim was taken, Remmele sold the car and the new owner put a suby engine it in IIRC.Haven´t seen the car since then.I wonder what happened to it.It was one of his best builds.

I remember seeing an engine bay shot of this car (no engine) with what looked like a subaru exhaust system judging by the turbo position..

Me too, after all these years that car is a work of technology art. I also read on a magazine that it was going to have a Twin turbo Subaru engine. I tough the front spoiler will house a radiator and the hot air would escape from the front fenders "vents". Later on I remember seen pictures of it with a Porsche fan loorking trough the engine decklid. Will love to know what happened to it or see more pictures!

Remmele built another car in the same color,however it didn't have the fender vents and different wheels.That car had a 2.9 liter type 4 in it. The front spoiler in the pic above is still available in Remmele's program.It's designed to house an oil cooler.

The problem is getting Remmele to sell and ship one of those from bumper/spoilers to the US. I tried for a long time and never got it done. Any magic ideas to getting one?

Around 8 years ago I did managed to get Remmele ship me to Puerto Rico a set of its rear coil overs which arrived very fast. Later I got a 911 style carbon fiber fan shroud with it matching carbon fiber airbox. Although it arrived 8 months later. Will love to see him shipping parts again, or maybe some type of dealer.

Another dealer won´t happen,that I am sure of. There are different grades of carbonfiber.If you order a component in carbon just to save weight and plan to paint it,then the weave doesn´t have to be perfect.The epoxy used is what gives the carbonfiber its stability.The reason I´m saying this is,if the part is only supposed to be light and the fibers won´t be seen,then it takes much less time to fabricate and a different,not so compact weave can be used that is easier and cheaper to get.For the "high quality" carbon you pay more and there are only 2 or 3 manufacturers in the world that produce aviation grade carbon fiber and it´s not always readily available.

I met Eddie in 2006 at his shop. Went for a drive in his 3L and a customers yellow kafer.

He was very bitter with the international community as he got burned for many parts and big money from people/shops/stores looking to resell his products. So it sounded like he screwed non local customers to recoupe his loses.

Bad to hear, but his shop was busy building and servicing customer cars.

I believe unless you really know him, or can do buisness in person, don't bother. It's real unfortunate and sucks.

I really liked his in-car air jack/lift when I was there.
