Project Update: Ben Vosloo’s K1-Attack!

K1 Attack FR

Many of our customers have interesting projects in the works and we’re always delighted to hear how our products are being used. You may recall a post we did last year on Ben Vosloo’s K1-Attack and the Deutsch Industrial connectors he selected for the build.

At that stage the car was a rolling chassis with a 1,998cc turbocharged 3S-GTE Toyota powerplant installed, plumbed and wired. As we covered in our latest newsletter, the car is now very close to complete, and Ben was kind enough to furnish us with a gallery of images below.

Ben Vosloo would like to thank Petr Beneš of B-Racing for supplying the K1-Attack kit and the appointed engineer, Earl Gilchrist, for his expert advice.

K1 Engineering later offered the car in kit form through various international partners. One such distributor is Petr Beneš of B-Racing expanded the drivetrain options to include the Honda H22A, H22A5, K20A and K24 powerplants, along with the Toyota 3S-GTE solution that Ben Vosloo has selected for his build in the images below.

Powersafe: Source vs Drain

PowersafeInFocusPart1We sometimes receive queries regarding the correct terminology for specifying Phase 3 Powersafe connectors and the sequential-mating Powersafe Box.
