This is an almost final rendering of the Lux Perpetua aluminum space frame. We ended up reinforcing the wall between the driver and the battery box (dark green) behind him. We got rid of the batteries under his knees and added boxes to his right and left. We also added a member on both sides from above the rear suspension to above the front suspension for increased rigidity.

Here's my favorite picture of Lux Perpetua. This one was snapped by one of the official Sunrayce photographers. Let the record show that the LP set the hot lap record at SR99. . . averaging over 40 mph on that *very* twisty course. . . :)

Here's a shot of a pristine and clean spaceframe with a still unpainted bottom shell. This photo was taken at the first unveiling of the car on Beineke Plaza.
