In 1970, Chaparral Racing changed the game in Can Am with the 2J "Sucker Car". It had the grip to literally blow the competition away...heh. Designer Jim Hall built a car that even Sir Jackie Stewart loved. it was a revolutionary new way to approach down force and if it waste for the McLaren teams complaints, we would have seen it race for many years. we take a look at the tech and engineering that made this car faster than anything else in the 1970 Can Am season. take a look, and find out just how much this car "Sucks".
Some of our best videos ever are coming out soon, stay tuned so you won't miss a thing!

  • Those of us who grew up in the 60's and 70's held the Chapparals in awe. We all loved the Revell Chapparal models, and the slot cars that we raced at the neighborhood slot car track. That's what we did, kids and adults surrounding a 30 foot long track racing our model cars at the hobby shop for 50 cents an hour.

  • I remember playing Gran Turismo 4 back in 2006 when i was 10 y.o, struggling so hard to get this car. Man, it was worth it. Now, my PS2 is long gone and I play GT4 on my PC through the emulator. Five minutes ago (literally) finished El Capitan 200 miles, got Minolta and purchased 2J. Just like in the old days. 2J is the best.

  • This was funny as well as informative. However, I do believe the Chaparral cars used a 2-speed (Powerglide) automatic trans rather than a 3-speed.

  • Wait wait wait, tech development stopped? Or i just guessed that this is a fundamentally normal but enhanced car at that time, with the nowadays/latest technology? .... I was just imaging the possibilities of this being a super ergonomic smart car, this car have so many mitigation, it seems safe and safer on slower speed, it might be too low for the road, turbine might be pointless for conventional, doesnt drift, but the flagshipness i feel when i see it, theres just no planned absolesence in it.

  • Jeremiah gives off great vibes. At least I feel that way. Thank you so much for elaborating on this lovely example of engineering art! I drove it occasionally in Gran Turismo PSP, and the fans definitely are quite intriguing. The Gordon Murray T50 also has an electrically-powered fan at the back, but the rest of the rationale for designing it harkens back to when cars actually required more driver involvement. Keep up with the videos, Donut! All of you are doing a marvellous job in entertaining us with automotive content!
