inTOUCH NET in Action

A lot of people will remember a customer video that we promoted about a year ago.  In this video, Richard S. was showing off his ability to start his car from his iPad using our inTOUCH NET.  It is a very memorable video because Richard is very excited about what he can do with our Infinitybox system in his car.  He posted another video last night showing our inTOUCH NET in action and we wanted to share it.

Richard Sherman’s Kongquest, wired with the Infinitybox System.

Richard has been building his KONGQUEST for several years.  It is a late 1980’s Conquest with a complete Corvette drive train under the body.  He has done a remarkable job building the chassis and even integrating in the Torque Tube into the system.  Here you can see the chassis of the car.

Richard Sherman’s Kongquest, wired with the Infinitybox System.

This is a very unique build and Richard didn’t want a typical electrical system.  He came to our team at Infinitybox to get the latest & greatest in automotive wiring technology.  He wired the car with our 20-Circuit Kit, inMOTION and inTOUCH NET.  There is nothing else in the market like our Infinitybox system.  No other company can give you the control and features in your custom car or truck build.  inTOUCH NET is extra unique.  We can give you complete touch screen control of all of your electrical features through any smart phone, tablet or select head units.

In the video below, Richard is showing his inTOUCH NET in action.  He shows how he can start his car, control all of his lights, roll his windows up & down plus control his locks from his iPad.  Check it out…

The Infinitybox team is proud to be a part of Richard’s build.  We can’t wait to see the finished product.

Factory Five Type 65 Race Car

The Factory Five Type 65 Coupe is near and dear to our hearts.  It is the car that lead us down the rabbit hole to develop our Infinitybox system and all of the accessory components.  You can learn more about the kit from Factory Five at this link.  We just received an email from a customer who finished his Factory Five Type 65 race car and wanted to share pictures of the final product.  He wired this car with our Infinitybox 20-Circuit Kit.

With these pictures, we received some very warm words from Shaun.  He said:

“I just wanted to share with you the completion of my Daytona Type 65 coupe after almost ten years. It has been a long build, with time and money always is short supply, but an awesome adventure. I am very impressed with your 3 cell system and even more in your continued support years after the initial sale. I have and will continue recommending your products to fellow builders and racers. Thanks again for all your assistance over the years, cheers.”

We take a lot of pride in the products and service that we provide.  Feedback like this is very important to us.

Player’s LTD Camaro

For those who were following us early on in our history, we did a lot of work with James Shipka and his One Lap of America Camaro.  We really cut our teeth on this car and learned a lot about the business.

James and his team came back to us last year with another race car project.  This one is pretty unique.  James found a Camaro originally built for the Player’s LTD series.  General Motors built these cars specifically for this race series and were driven at tracks all across Canada.  The main tracks were Shannonville, Grand Prix Molson, Race City, Mosport, Moslon Indy, Grand Prix de Trois-Rivieres, Westwood, Cayuga Speedway.  You can learn more about the cars and the race series by clicking this link.

James was looking for a powerful but simple electrical system for his restoration of this Player’s Camaro.  We recommended our Express Track Car kit.  This gives our customers everything that they need to wire all of the electrical functions of a race car.  It comes pre-configured to control your ignition, starter solenoid, lights, fuel pump, water pump and cooling fans.  At its heart, this kit starts with one of our POWERCELLs.  The kit also includes a pre-engineered CAN switch panel that mounts in your dash.  A simple 4-wire harness connects the switch panel to the POWERCELL.  Lastly, the kit also includes one of our IOX input modules for wiring simple switches into the system.

This picture shows the POWERCELL mounted behind the passenger door in the car.

Here you can see the switch panel mounted in the center console.

This is a very simple but powerful application of our products.

You can follow the entire build series for the Player’s Camaro on Facebook by clicking this link.  Thanks to James and his team for sharing the pictures.  We’re proud to be a part of your project.

Tachyon Speed

We always say that our Infinitybox system gets used in some very unique vehicles.  The new Tachyon Speed is another exceptional example of this.  We were first approached by Eric Rice and his team in early 2015.  Their company is called RAESR, Rice Advanced Engineering Systems and Research.  It is pronounced like “racer”.  Their vision was to create the ultimate electric and hybrid-electric super cars.  Their first model is called the Tachyon Speed and it is a magnificent piece of engineering work.

Porsche Track Car wired with the Infinitybox Wiring System

Porsche Track Car

We have a customer in Colorado who is building a 1978 Porsche 930 as a track car. He has spent three years working on getting this car right. He turned to our team at Infinitybox to get a wiring system that will handle the abuse of the track, eliminate weight and get him the functionality that he needs in the car.

He picked up a 20-Circuit Kit to handle all of the electrical functions in the car. This package gets him 20 switched circuits, 10 in the front and 10 in the rear of the car. Even though a race car wiring harness is pretty basic, there are still a lot of things that need to get switched. Infinitybox makes wiring these plus adding more down the road easier than a traditional wiring system.

He is just at the point of mounting his cells in the car. You can check out some of the install pictures below.

He has his MASTERCELL mounted just forward of the shifter so that he can access the inSIGHT diagnostics easily.

He wants to keep his weight low so he is mounting his POWERCELLs close to what is is controlling. This eliminated a lot of wire in the car. Here is his front POWERCELL.

Infinitybox Front POWERCELL mounted in a Porsche track car.

His rear POWERCELL is mounted right in the engine compartment. Again, this keeps his wire runs very short. All of the POWERCELLS are rated for environments up to 125 degrees Celsius.

It is a beautiful car and it will be a powerful machine when it hits the track. We’ll post more as he continues to wire the car.  If you want to get more details on the car, click on this link. You can also follow his whole build thread by clicking this link.

Factory Five 818 Wiring Completed

Here’s another great example of a customer’s car wired with our Infinitybox system.  Frank L. came to us a few years ago looking for a wiring system for his Factory Five 818.  He wanted his car to have all of the latest electrical functions that he could.  He wanted it to stand out from the rest in every possible way.

Frank used our 20-Circuit Kit as the foundation to wiring his car.  We have a specific configuration for the 20-Circuit Kit that is designed for the 818.  You can download an addendum to our manual that covers all of the Factory Five 818 wiring specifics by clicking this link.  He also added our inTOUCH NET so he could control the car from any smart phone or tablet.

In this picture, you can see the front POWERCELL, the MASTERCELL and inTOUCH NET mounted behind the dash.  This location for the MASTERCELL  puts it very close to the switches on the dash.  The POWERCELL is located so that all of the output wires are short.

In these next pictures, you can see the rear POWERCELL mounted on the rear firewall.  This is a great location because the run of wires from the rear POWERCELL to the lights, turn signals, starter solenoid and ECU are very short.

Frank wanted to control as much of his car from his tablet on the dash.  In this picture, you can see his tablet mounted on the center console.  He can use this as a touch screen to control his ignition, starter, lights, fans and other accessories in the car.

Here are a few additional pictures of the car.  We always love to see them in go-cart stage.  It really shows off the amount of work that it takes to build a car.

 

Frank sent us some great pictures of the finished car.  You can see them below.  Everything turned out great, especially the color of the car.

Thanks to Frank for sharing these pictures of his Factory Five 818 build.  The entire Infinitybox team is proud to be a part of this project.

Buick Super Coupe

Our Infinitybox system has been used to wire and control the electrical system of some of the most beautiful cars out there.  This 1940 Buick Super Coupe is no exception.  As a brand, Buick has always been known for style and comfort.  Built by Aubrey K, this car is a great example of great engineering, dedication and craftsmanship.  He took the style and comfort of this Buick and added power and performance.  The Infinitybox team is proud to be a part of this project.  You can see the finished product here.

 

Aubrey wired the car with our 20-Circuit Kit.  He was looking for a simple electrical wiring system that would give him the control that he wanted.  He wanted modern convenience features in his 1940 Buick Super Coupe.  They added inTOUCH MAX to control the entire car from a touch screen mounted in the dash.

You can see a great video with Aubrey talking about the details of the car.  You can also see him starting the Super Buick Coupe by pushing a button on the touch screen.


There is also a great article in Street Rod Life Magazine that goes through the details of the car.  You can learn all about its history, the performance details and the electrical system in this article.  You can see an on-line version of the article featuring the Buick Super Coupe by clicking this link.

GTM410 Update

We’re always getting progress updates from our customers who are wiring their cars with our Infinitybox system.  We just got an update from John M. about his progress on his Factory Five GTM.  We posted last year about this car before he took it apart to paint the body.  You can see that post at this link.  John did the paint on the body and the results are stunning.  Check out the results.

 

John has our full system in his GTM.  He’s using our 20-Circuit Kit as the electrical foundation.  This is powering his lights, ignition, ECU, fans, fuel pump and other electrical accessories.  He added inMOTION to control his power windows and power locks.  He added inRESERVE to protect his battery from draining.  Lastly, he added our inTOUCH NET so that he could control everything in the car from his phone or his head unit mounted in the dash.

John has a great website that covers all of the details of his GTM build.  This includes an in-depth section on our Infinitybox system and how he wired it into the car.  You can see his build site by clicking this link.

John is buttoning up the last details on the car.  He thinks that he’s a few months away from completing everything and getting the car on the road.

Split Second Corvette

There were a lot of great Corvettes at this year’s Autorama in Detroit.  A good number of them were wired with our Infinitybox system.  The Split Second built by Eddie’s Rod & Custom is a great example.  They built a stunning 1963 Corvette into a powerful Pro-Touring Machine.

The team at Eddie’s took an unconventional approach to the engine for this car.  This highly modified C2 is powered by a well-dressed 327 small-block.  This unique touch hearkens back to the car’s past but gives it the power needed to perform.

They wired the car with our 20-Circuit Kit, inMOTION, inLINK and inRESERVE.  They added inVIRONMENT for control of their Vintage Air.  An iPad mounted in their dash is the command center for the car.  All of the features are controlled from the iPad using our inTOUCH NET.
