    V8 in race car

    Hi All - Pleased to say that I finally got the V8 Evinrude with 8 Mikuni SBN carbs running properly and achieved a PB at the Shelsley Walsh Hill Climb here in England. A bit more tuning on the CVT transmission and project complete.

    I am already looking at the next project - a fuel injected V6 where we can cut off the existing exhaust and fit 3 siamesed or 6 Expansion Chambers. Anybody got one for sale? Looking for close to 350 -400hp & 300 lb/ft torque. Just need the power head, flat slide throttle body preferred. A Monty modified would be good. Click image for larger version.

    Very cool. Watched a guy run a Rude in a sprint car years ago.

    Hi - Lake Fever - sorry no decent footage of car on track BUT heres the sound of the V8. Got a Go Pro onto the CVT to try and analyse why the secondary is not working correctly?? https://www.facebook.com/peter.hubba...23536888381817

    Any thoughts/comments appreciated. The CVT is a Supreme Sports 600hp unit.
