2014 Radical RXC Lands in America! Track Shakedown with WISKO Racing + Mega Gallery Inside/Out



WISKO racing is based in Virginia and is an official Radical distributor in the United States -- which is a bit of a relief for me as a car writer.

Why? As you may note in the below photos, there is a "For Sale" placard in the windshield, which would be worrying for such a new car in any other circumstances...!

But not for this amazing machine, which delivers such LeMans levels of down-force that it becomes nearly unflappable in any track scenario.

All the better to put down some race-ready laptimes..!

The RXC is priced from just under 100,000 Pounds Sterling in its UK home market, which at current exchange rates tallies about $170,000 for U.S. customers.

I did a build-out that was a bit more than the $170,000 estimated below, and there is a new RXC Turbo available now as well... Very tempting!

TECHNICAL DETAILS from Radical.

>Powertrain

At the heart of every RXC beats a high-performance, low maintenance V6 engine. Radical offers two state-of-the-art Ford powerplant options in the RXC road car, and both have been optimised by in-house engine division RPE and engine management partner AER to create a reliable, high-power yet low running cost powertrain.The Ford Cyclone 37 Ti-VCT engine fitted as standard is a 3.7-litre 24-valve V6 unit with twin-independent variable cam timing and sequential multi-port electronic injection, controlled by a bespoke Radical/AER Life engine management system as employed successfully on the SR3 SL roadster. A fly-by-wire throttle ensures immediate power and response and the car will meet full Euro 5 emissions compliance for markets across the world. Despite their racing specification the engine and gearbox service intervals are up to 10,000km.For even more performance select the awesome 3.5-litre, twin-turbocharged direct injection EcoBoost V6 engine, delivering 454PS for true hypercar performance whilst retaining all of the drivability, reliability and cost-effective ownership of its Cyclone counterpart.The V6 drives the rear wheels through an all-new bespoke RPE/Quaife seven-speed transverse gearbox that is low in weight and ensures the overall weight balance remains very close to that of an SR3. Featuring paddleshift and an integral Quaife Automatic Torque Biasing differential, gear ratios are quickly and easily changed from the side of the gearbox like current F1 design practice. The in-house developed paddleshift system allows full-bore, 50ms seamless upshifts and automatically blips the throttle for clutchless downshifts without the need to heel-and-toe.

>Suspension & Brakes

For the first time on a Radical the RXC features a bespoke Intrax Racing Suspension inboard push rod suspension system with double wishbones all round to reduce unsprung mass and further improve Radical’s class-leading ride quality and handling. Four-way adjustment is available as an option on the RXC-optimised dampers, with all cars benefitting from GT3-style camber and suspension geometry adjustment.350mm front and 310mm rear fully-floating disc brakes with six-pot calipers take care of braking. Carbon ceramic discs and calipers are available as an option. The brakes sit inside 17” Braid centre-lock wheels front and rear – the biggest ever fitted to a Radical production car.

>Electronics

The AiM MXL LCD multifunction dashboard provides a comprehensive snapshot of both engine information and performance figures. The optional datalogging system adds a comprehensive portfolio of configurable inputs, from brake pressure and temperature logging to G forces and suspension travel. AiM’s acclaimed SmartyCam system can also be added to the system to provide video with a realtime overlay of data, ideal for lap time improvement or corporate use.

>Interior

Not only is the RXC Radical’s most technically advanced car but it is also comprehensively specified. The interior of the RXC features a multi-function fully adjustable steering wheel, EPAS power steering, electrically adjustable and heated wing mirrors, air conditioning, heated windscreen with single wiper and an adjustable pedal box. Occupants sit in bespoke Corbeau FIA-compliant trimmed bucket seats with six-point racing harnesses.

>Chassis

Cooling for the engine and braking systems is directed through cents in the nose and sidepods whilst a GT3-specification rear wing is adjustable to suit different circuit configurations. The cockpit is easily accessed by the gullwing doors, part of the most complex body that Radical has ever produced and incorporating both composite and carbon fibre sections. This multi-piece bodywork comes in a wide palette of colours and is designed to be easily and cost-effectively repaired or replaced.The bodywork clothes a high-tensile, laser-cut CDS tubular steel spaceframe, developed in the same way as Radical’s FIA-approved SR series chassis. The integral rollcage ensures maximum occupant safety and vehicle stiffness, with both the nose and tail of the car boasting monocoque crash boxes. To prove the strength and very high level of safety the chassis has been subjected to the comprehensive crash test for European type approval compliance, which it passed with flying colours.
