You’re looking at the shakedown and testing of RMR’s newest Hyundai, the Genesis PM580. This unlimited class Pikes Peak race car will go for the holy grail of mountain climbing – a sub ten minute ascent to 14,000 ft. Keeping Rhys Millen’s rocket sled glued to the ground is a custom built Dynamic Wing by Aeromotions.
The wing is designed to provide maximum traction and grip in the turns. On the straights, it flattens out to dump the excess drag and give Rhys that little extra edge. The computer controlled wing monitors breaking, acceleration, and turning to determine the optimal position of the wing. Here’s a clip of the wing in action.
