The engines have been designed and developed in a modular configuration in order to be suited to a wide range of applications and installations, ranging from club racing to championship high level motorsport. Front and mid-engine locations, gasoline and alternative fuels, and even stressed mounting retrofits for single seat applications. Many control options are developed and available.
