      boring....

      Is this another of those workshops than pump out big dyno charts and no usable functionality on the vehicle?

      Its impressive when its allowed to roam free with that power.
      Thats what cars are for!

        Its nice but give me a dihatsu charade any day, the older the better! Now there is power!

          when you are making 2000hp thats a massive achievement in itself...

            So... remove the viper motor and wack in a 747 engine on a tall engine mounting.
            Gives you a very impressive HP count, but *yawn*.

            The Rolls Royce merlins/griffons used on the spitfires/mustangs etc had in excess of 2500 hp and that was 1946.
            Some fool in the US mounted a merlin in a Ford mustang. ie mustang aircraft motor in a mustang car. I think he had problems with the torque twisting/snapping engine mountings and frames etc so it became a static display. Wow. :mellow:

            If the viper doesnt get driven and cant turn corners, then IMHO the engine might as well be mounted on a Tonka truck.

              Only the americans could make an 8.3 litre V10 that only puts out 500bhp, 1750hp is closer to the real power it should be making!

                  Nice dyno car, notice all the complainers are engineers *rolls eyes*

                    Yeah, but the world would be stuffed if "us engineers" were happy to create computers that worked at 600GHz, but couldnt add numbers unless they were even ... and one of them had to be a 4.

                    (or bridges that could hold 30000 tonnes but they had to have a heap of 4 metre expansion gaps in the middle. )

                    Going goey over dyno runs is like standing in the art gallery and going.... hmm yes.. magnificent use of colour!
                    Its a static peice of art... which if you like that kind of thing is fine, but thats not what I call a vehicle!

                      might as well remove the chassis then...reduce the drivetrain losses. lol
                      No amount of genius can overcome a preoccupation to detail.

                        That guy was actually an engineer who used to work for Rolls Royce, and he put the Merlin in a Rolls Royce. It was governed to a maximum speed of 290kp/h.

                        Rolls Royce later tried to sue him for defacing/mangling one of their cars.

                        By the way, there's a twin turbo 383 Commode in Perth which has been dynoed at somewhere around 1,600hp. I forget the actual figure, but it was over 1,500hp.

                          Yeah. Wasnt it that Eddie Tassone guy?

                          I can see where xp is coming from though. Much ado is made over "dyno queens" that can make insane power on the dyno (and have to be dynoed in a cage sometimes), but arent used on the strip, or at least, the owners have never posted up 1/4 mile times.

                          Wise man once said..."when the flag drops, the bullsh*t stops!"

                          Then again, there is Rod Hadfield over east with his Rolls-Royce Merlin engined '55 Chev.. :o

                            if the point was to create a computer that worked at 600ghz then it would be good, if it was to make a computer that could add numbers then it would be shit. this guy didnt (i assume, we havent seen any other info of it) build a track car, he wanted to try and make as much hp as he could from a particular engine in a particular car. its all well and good for you to say "yeah but its boring coz its crap on the track" but thats like saying an stock toyota echo is crap because its crap on the track... it depends on the purpose.

                              I think you missed my point... (only just though )

                              The point of this analogy is that if a computer cant add numbers it has lost its MAJOR functionality and hence becomes useless. (trust me... almost everything in a computer relies on addition) So what if isolated bits of it can operate at 600GHz in limited conditions... what good is it?

                              Well then as I said before, it doesnt matter if its a dodge viper or a tonka truck... he has modded a (very large) engine to develop more horsepower. Great.... but if you cant use it I think you'd be better off going only half way with the motor and spending some of that money on a drivetrain / wheels / chasis etc that can mean you are not losing MAJOR functionality of the car.

                              No. Its not like taking a stock echo and adding wings/spoilers etc and lowering by removing the wheels .... saying it was done to improve the aerodynamics.

                              Then standing back and saying the car is improved.
