WHY THE AVION RS1?

The RS1 is designed for the purist, the driver.

 

In a time where traction control, anti-lock braking, paddle shift automatics, rev matching and fuel injection are all the norm, the new cars of today have robbed the driver of the gratification that comes from mastering the art of high performance driving. Here you will learn the fundamentals and satisfaction of what it's like to command the car and not have the car command you. At Avion Motorsports you will learn

  • To use a clutch

  • Heel 'n toe

  • Rev match with your ear

  • Caress the car with the wheel, punctuate it with the gear shift

 

THE AVION RS1

The Avion RS1 is a purpose-built two-seater track car, a driver development platform for all levels. Although it has the attributes to challenge the most seasoned driver, we designed this car to also appeal to the novice, to quell intimidation, to build confidence. A car that is easy to maintain and inexpensive to repair should an ‘excursion’ take place. 

 

SAFETY

Safety is always the #1 priority. The Avion RS1 has the latest driver and passenger safety aspects built in starting with full containment racing seats, 5-point harnesses, 22 US gallon NASCAR style fuel cells with roll over anti-spill devices, full roll cage with anti-intrusion provisions, onboard fire suppression, collapsible steering columns and high impact foam surrounding the driver. We added driver comforts such as adjustable driver’s seat, telescoping and height adjustable steering column, fully adjustable pedals, cool suit systems for both driver and passenger with cooled air helmet blowers. 

 

PERFORMANCE

The Avion RS1 provides a great opportunity to develop a drivers performance driving and skills in a very safe environment. Designing and building the car took work, but we have designed an incredible car that performs at the highest levels. 

 

Performance always starts under the hood and our criteria is a motor that was powerful, reliable, simplistic, economical and readily available. We selected the GM 604 Crate Engine (350 Ci) and converted it to a dry sump system for reliability as well as lowering the center of gravity in the car. We dyno test the engine prior to installation to confirm that every RS1 is producing 450 HP

 To go with the 604 engine we also have;

  • A 4-speed, non-synchromesh racing transmission (either a G-Force T101A or Jericho) mated to a 5.5” high performance clutch through a scatter proof bell housing.

  • The Ford 9” axle housing with a lightweight Detroit Locker gear set with internal oil pump for cooling and full floating axles.

  • Bicknell braking system with 4 piston aluminum calipers with Brembo rotors cooled by electric fan boosted duct work.

  • The suspension showcases aluminum threaded body, rebound adjustable coil over shocks.

  • The body is constructed from lightweight fiberglass including a front splitter and high down-force adjustable rear wing for superb aerodynamics.

  • Steel 10” wheels ready to accept slicks or rain tires complete the build.

 

  • How to feel when the tires break loose

  • How to use the throttle to properly

  • Learn proper driving footwork

  • Learn the dance with the pedals
