Sneak Peek: The Mighty Tilton Evo
As the 2015 WTAC has just ended with the Titlon Evo piloted by Garth Walden setting another world record by lapping Eastern Creek at a blistering 1:23.777 pace, let's take a close look at the world's fastest unibody car, the winner of the 2015 WTAC and overall world record holder, the mighty Tilton Evo. Currently the Tilton Evo is the epitome of time attack state of the art and showcases just what can be done when maintaining the standard unibody to a car built nearly to the fullest extent of the rules with almost no expense spared.
The Tilton Evo is fascinating with a level of construction, typical of WTAC cars that makes our efforts at doing the same thing here (in the USA) look silly in comparison. Unlike the controversial Nemo Evo the Tilton Evo is built with the chassis in a very safe conventional interpretation of the rules. Thus the Tilton Evo is a more conventional car which bears some semblance to its street going brethren.
For interests sake, take a look at the Nemo Evo and compare and contrast the two radically different cars.
My personal preference is for cars more like the Tilton Evo which I consider to be built in the spirit of what I feel time attack should be. Not to take anything away from the amazing Nemo Evo but just my own personal opinion. Let's now take a look inside this marvellous monster.
