Supercar Blondie Test Drives Tachyon Speed

Eric Rice and his team at RASER have been getting some great press coverage for their Tachyon Speed.  This is a one-of-a-kind super car.  It’s all electric, it’s styled like a fighter jet and it can put out enough peak power to meet the needs of a small city.  Just like any other car, it needs an electrical wiring system to manage all of the functions in the car.  The RAESR team turned to Infinitybox to get the most advanced electrical system on the market to meet their customers’ needs.

The Tachyon Speed caught the eye of Alex Hirschi, aka Supercar Blondie.  Australian-born Alex is a world renown celebrity in the super car space.  She now calls Dubai her home and was recently listed as one of the top 30 most influential women in the Arab World.  Her blogs, videos and TV appearances have been viewed billions of times by aficionados of exotic and super cars.  She is an expert on all automotive thoroughbreds.  Alex made the trip out to LA to meet with the RASER team and test drive the Tachyon Speed.  She ran the car through its paces on the road.  She also had a chance to play with the touch screens and switch interfaces that are controlled by the Infinitybox system in the car.

The Supercar Blondie team posted a video showing Alex meeting with the RAESR team, touring the car and taking it on the road.  Check out the video below.

We congratulate Eric and his team for what they’ve accomplished with the Tachyon Speed.  We are proud to be a part of this car.

Our Infinitybox system was designed for any type of car, truck or race car.  You may not be building a super car but you can get the same functionality and features in your restoration, street-rod, kit car or Pro-Touring build.  Click this link to contact our team to learn more.

1968 Charger Install

We love getting pictures of finished cars from our customers. Most of our customers send the glamour shots of the cars all waxed up, looking pretty. Some of our customers like to show off the details that the rest of the world doesn’t get to see. The detail pictures are our favorites because they show how our customers wired their cars with our Infinitybox system. We received a great set of detailed pictures from Russ L. who installed our Infinitybox system in his 1968 charger. These pictures are great because they show how be mounted the cells in the car.

For his Charger, Russ purchased our 20-Circuit Kit with inMOTION and inLINK. This 20-Circuit is powering all of the primary electrical functions in the car including his ignition, starter, fuel pump, cooling fan, horn and all lights. He’s using inMOTION to control his power windows and power door lock. inLINK lets him enable and disable security, unlock his doors and control his lights remotely.

For his 1968 Charger install, Russ started by mounting his MASTERCELL. He was looking for the right location in this car. He wanted a place that was close to his switches to keep the input wires short. He also wanted a place that would let him easily run the CAN cable through the car. He found that the center console was the best location. He built a false bottom under the arm rest to hide the MASTERCELL. He can easily access it for troubleshooting and diagnostics. The CAN cable runs from the rear of the car right through the center console so it made that part of the wiring very easy. The input wires for the MASTERCELL run forward to the switches on the dash. He has a simple hole with a grommet to run the switch wires out of the arm rest. This picture shows his MASTERCELL mounted in the center console of this 1968 Charger.

Russ chose to mount his front POWERCELL under the hood on the driver’s side fender near where the battery would normally be mounted. Our POWERCELLs are designed to survive the harsh under-hood environment in cars. They can withstand all of the temperature extremes, chemicals and vibration that can be found in the engine compartment. He fabricated a simple aluminum plate and mounted it to the fender with riv-nuts. The POWERCELL is mounted to this plate using nylock nuts so they will not vibrate loose. This picture shows the front POWERCELL mounted under the hood.

This picture shows more detail on the mounting plate that he fabricated to mount the POWERCELL under the hood.

Russ mounted his rear POWERCELL and inMOTION cell in the trunk. This picture shows the finished trunk. You can see how clean it is.

Russ built an aluminum stand to mount his rear POWERCELL. He wanted to tip it at an angle so he could easily see the fuses and indicator lights on the POWERCELL when he removed the access panel in the trunk. The aluminum stand is mounted directly to the trunk floor using riv-nuts and he used nylock nuts again to bolt the POWERCELL to the stand. He also used this aluminum stand as a place to mount his Battery Tender so he can easily keep his battery topped off. This picture shows the POWERCELL mounted behind the removable panel.

This is a great location for the rear POWERCELL because he has easy access to it for troubleshooting or in case he needs to replace a fuse. It also keeps his runs of wire in the back of the car very short.

Russ mounted his inMOTION cell just like the rear POWERCELL on the driver’s side of the trunk behind a removable panel. He fabricated a similar aluminum mount to hold the inMOTION cell. This picture shows how he mounted his inMOTION cell in his 1968 Charger.

The finished product is clean, efficient and more powerful any any other wiring harness on the market. We thank Russ for sending these pictures and letting us share them. We know that he is proud of this car and we’re proud to be a part of it.

As a parting shot, Russ sent this picture showing that MOPAR runs in his veins. This picture shows his 1968 Charger lined up with his daily drivers.

Our customers are technology guys. They like to tinker, create and modify things. They aren’t content with things that are basic. We have been helping our customers build beyond basic cars for 10 years now. This one is no exception. Geoff Beale built a beautiful 1966 Mustang hardtop that was featured in the most recent issue of Mustang Monthly. Geoff did something very unique with the electrical system in this car. He wired it with our Infinitybox system, then paired our system with a Crestron control system. The end product is an awesome Mustang with complete control through switches and an iPhone. Read below for more details.

Geoff runs Throwback Customs. In addition to that, he is highly involved with Crestron, which builds electronic control systems for conference rooms, board rooms and schools. Geoff paired his Crestron expertise with our Infinitybox system to get a powerful electrical system for his Mustang.

The car was in pretty rough shape when Geoff purchased it. Over several years, he has shaped, sculpted and created his ideal version of the 1966 Mustang. He installed a supercharged 5 liter Coyote Mustang engine on an Art Morrison MAXG chassis. From there, he has added subtle touches to the car that you won’t see anywhere else.

When it came to wiring the car, he came to Infinitybox to get our 20-Circuit Kit to be used as the main body controller. This kit is powering his lighting, ignition, starter, cooling fans, fuel pump, horn and other accessories. He added an extra POWERCELL to get 10 more outputs for the added features that he has in the car. He then added our inMOTION Motor Controller to control his power windows and locks. Lastly, he added our inVIRONMENT module to control his Gen-IV unit from Vintage Air.

Because of his experience with Crestron, he wanted to use their system as the touch screen and iPhone controller for the car. Our MASTERCELL inputs are all ground switched so Geoff was able to easily connect his inputs to the outputs of his Crestron controller. All the electrical features in the car can be controlled through the Crestron touch screen or the Crestron iPhone app. Geoff has a YouTube channel full of videos showing off the integration of the two systems. Here’s an example video of him showing off the electrical features in the car.

Timeless Muscle Magazine Features 1968 GTX

The team at Timeless Muscle Magazine did a great article covering a 1968 Plymouth GTX that was wired with our Infinitybox system.  The car is owned by Len W. and was built with help from Shironaka Enterprises.  The article was written by Rick Seitz and the stunning photography was shot by Grant Cox.  This car looks great, performs like a champ and has our Infinitybox system at its heart managing all of its electrical system.

1968 Plymouth GTX Wired with Infinitybox System.

The guys wired this car with our 20-Circuit Kit.  This kit forms the electrical backbone of the car.  It is powering all the lights, ignition, starter, fuel pump, cooling fan, horn and other accessories.  They added our inLINK remote option to get our integrated security and immobilization feature.  They also added our inRESERVE active battery manager.  This accessory constant keeps an eye on the car’s battery voltage and actively disconnects all the electrical draw if the voltage gets too low.  This feature always keeps enough charge in the battery to crank the engine and never lets the battery deep cycle.

This picture shows the 6.1L New-Gen HEMI engine sitting comfortably under the hood.  The engine bay is clean and well laid out.  You can see the primary Mega fuses that are included with the 20-Circuit Kit in the lower right coming off the battery.  You can also see the POWERCELL neatly mounted on the firewall by the brake booster.

Picture of underhood POWERCELL in 1968 Plymouth GTX.

This mounting location shows off two key strengths of the Infinitybox system.  First, our hardware was designed to handle the heat, shock, vibration and chemical exposure found in the toughest automotive applications.  Second, our distributed architecture makes wiring the car much easier.  That front POWERCELL is controlling all of the electrical functions in the front of the car.  These include the headlights, high-beams, front running lights, front turn signals, horn, cooling fan, ignition power to the ECU, power to the starter solenoid and power for the dash.  All of these functions wire locally to the front POWERCELL.  They do not need to be wired back to a central fuse box in the car.

We thank Len, Rick and the team at Timeless Muscle Magazine for this great article.  Our team at Infinitybox is proud to be a part of this car.  You can read the full article in the magazine by clicking this link.

1952 Pick Up Featured in Hot Rod Magazine

Hot Rod Magazine just published a feature article covering an awesome 1952 Chevrolet 3100 pick up truck.  From the curb, this looks to be a modest and clean restoration.  When you get into the details, you’ll see that this is a high-performing resto-mod, ready to take on anything that gets in its way.

Under the truck is a TCI chassis equipped with a Currie 9″ rear end and a 4-link rear end.  Up front is the TCI independent front suspension.  Under the hood is a supercharged and heavily modified LS9.  This entire package delivers a truck with plenty of power and handling.

Here’s what Mark did electrically with our Infinitybox system.  He started out with our 20-Circuit Kit.  This is his electrical backbone in the truck.  His MASTERCELL and two POWERCELLs are controlling his ignition, starter, headlights, turn signals, running lights, high-beams, horn and cooling fan.  He then added inMOTION to control his power windows and power locks.  Lastly, he added inTOUCH NET so that he could control the whole truck from the Kenwood head unit in the dash or the smart phone in his pocket.  The finished product is a clean electrical install with features that no other wiring harness can offer.

This picture shows the details in the interior plus the Kenwood head unit that is his interface for inTOUCH NET and the rest of the Infinitybox system.

Finished Factory Five Cobra

Ten years ago, we started selling our Infinitybox systems.  We found our first success with guys building Factory Five Cobras.  These guys are tinkers.  They want something that they built, not bought.  They want their cars to be different and unique.  Our Infinitybox system has been instrumental for hundreds of Factory Five Roadsters, Hot Rods, GTM’s and 818’s for 10 years.  With our system, guys can simplify their electrical system plus get features that no other system can provide.

We received these great pictures from Infinitybox customer Dan M.  He’s just finishing his Cobra build and is very proud of the results.

He squeezed the Ford Coyote 5.0 under the hood.  Check out how clean the engine compartment is.

He wired the system with our standard 20-Circuit Kit.  This universal system is powering all of the electrical functions in the car including the ignition, starter, head lights, high-beams, turn signals, brake lights, fuel pump, horn and cooling fan.  He integrated our system to the Ford ECU for the Coyote to simplify control of the ignition, starter solenoid, cooling fan and fuel pump.  You can download the Infinitybox wiring diagram that shows how to connect to the Coyote harness by clicking this link.

Dan added inLINK as an option to his kit to get our security functions.  Since this is an open top car, he wanted to do everything that could to prevent theft.  Since his 20-Circuit Kit is controlling the ignition, fuel pump and starter, the security functions built into the Infinitybox system completely immobilize the car when he locks it from the inLINK key fobs.  If a would-be thief were to try to hot wire the car, the Infinitybox system eliminates the ability to start the engine unless it is unlocked from the inLINK key fob.

Lastly, Dan added our inRESERVE battery management solenoid to his kit.  inRESERVE is an active battery management system that disconnects the battery if the voltage starts to drop.  This helps to reduce damage to the battery from deep-cycling and always leaves enough power in the battery to start the car.

This picture shows the rear POWERCELL mounted on the frame of the car.  It also shows some of the included harnesses, the primary fuses included in the kit to protect the power harnesses and the inRESERVE solenoid.

We wanted to end this blog post with a quote from Dan.  He sent us an email with these great pictures and these comments about our Infinitybox system.

“I can’t thank you enough for the help you gave me and the system your company produces. I am planning on post pictures and a write up on the Factory Five Forum over the weekend. I will be telling other builders that if you are worried about wiring you car then Infinitybox is for you, it makes a complicated part of the build much easier to understand and complete. Thank you for a wonderful product.”

Thank you to Dan W. for sharing these pictures and the comments about our system.  We appreciate this and are proud to be a part of your car.
