CMR 79 was an evolution of CMR 37 seeking to improve upon the success of 37 and making improvements in transient handling and engine drivability. These goals were accomplished through experimentation with the wheelbase and ackerman and longer primary exhaust runners. Additionally, 8 pounds were shaved from the previous years design further helping performance. This was almost for nought as a problem with the TPS prevented the car from running in either acceleration or skidpad and only a poor showing in autocross. However, 79 refused to die quietly and became only the second car in CMR history to finish endurance, passing many other teams on the way to a 26th place finish.

The Car We are building upon our past designs with the 2011 racecar, which will incorporate many advances in the design and manufacturing of our parts. These include 3-piece carbon fiber wheels, launch control, carbon fiber under tray, and a complete redesign of the rear sub-frame and suspension. An emphasis on weight reduction through the optimization of structural components such as the expanded use of carbon fiber parts and new alloys will help propel this year's car into the winners circle.
