Title: Small powerhouses and old school Post by: BeetleBug on November 27, 2007, 11:12:11 AM Inspired by the old school cal look engine thread and after seeing the Kris Klingaman thread I felt like starting a own mouse engine discussion. OK, I asked in the other thread if it is possible to reach the 100hp/l limit without having to spend a fortune and I have received info that this is impossible to reach - especially if you want a true street engine. IS IT? It`s quite obvious that Kris Klingaman`s engine was a pure race engine with a compression of 14.5:1 but what else did he do so correct to manage to push a close to stock weight car into the 11`s with a 1750ccm engine? This is just as fast and even faster than most 2,3`s out there today. WHY WAS A GUY FASTER BACK THEN USING A MOUSE ENGINE THAN MOST GUYS ARE TODAY? With the WWW, info available everywhere and plenty of shops offering high power stuff we should be going faster, agree? Or has all the info/parts available made us loose the ability to "think out of the box". Or is not "thinking out of the box" the answer? Maybe we`re heading in the wrong direction and is building engines that is not as close to their full potential compared to what they built "back then?" And what makes a engine old school? Bolting on period correct parts? For me a truly old school engine is a engine that has been built the way they did it back then. When know how was important, the parts where hard to come by and creativity was necessary to be a little bit faster than your competitor. Best rgs BB

Watch out for 2008...even before we had 1776cc engines reving to the moon and making at least 180hp AND being reliable ... I'm sure there will be some other guys chime in on this... "thinking out of the box" the answer is INDEED the key to succes ::) Regards Steve Title: Re: Small powerhouses and old school Post by: Fastbrit on November 27, 2007, 12:52:04 PM
Q uote from : Be e tle Bug on Nove m be r 27, 2007, 11:12:11 AM WHY WA S A GUY FA STER BA CK THEN USING A MOUSE ENGINE THA N MOST GUYS A RE TODA Y?

Two words: grenade motors! Talking with many of the 'old guys' (like I'm young... ::)), we tend to forget that many of the fast mouse-motored cars had engines which lived on (and frequently exceeded) the limit. Catastrophic engine failures were not uncommon. Don't underestimate the fact that there are far more 11-second true street cars around today than ever before because engine technology has moved on and parts are so readily available. Yes, we could go even faster by building engines that are on the edge all the time, but who wants to be sweeping up parts and rebuilding broken motors every weekend? One big reason the old motors did produce a lot of horsepower for their size was down to superior head work. When you didn't have a range if aftermarket heads to choose from, there was no option but to extract the maximum from factory 311 castings. Head porters like Fumio Fukaya and Dean Lowry were capable of such work and today there are others, but few people choose to go down that route any more. Why? It's too easy (and far cheaper) to buy some off the shelf heads from someone like CB that will make good hp. I bet if you paid someone like Fumio (or Jeff Denham) the FULL rate (and don't underestimate the number of hours it takes to do a good job) for doing a set of dynamite 311 heads, you'd be amazed at how much you'd get out of a small motor. Title: Re: Small powerhouses and old school Post by: BeetleBug on November 27, 2007, 13:25:33 PM Hi Steve, What tells you this statement is true and proven? It was meant as a question but that said I have still not heard or read about a small engine going into the 11`s like Klingaman. Looking at certain lists and our All Time Top Racers list I notice that the smallest engine is Ole Endlers 2110ccm with a 11.5 ET. It`s indeed interesting to read about the 1776ccm making at least 180hp. This is exactly what I want to discuss in this thread - what has been done SO correct with this engine to make it both powerful and reliable? Questions to you, is it a street engine with cooling and running on pump gas? Best rgs BB

I'm quite sure we can buy parts today that would have blown the Old Guys brains out when it comes to what RPMs they can withstand, Today we can have lighter pistons with lesser drag, stronger and lighter con-rods and so on and the valve train can be lightened like never before. The only thing I can see being the problem with such a engine today is the KNOWHOW, it's hard to come by.. and its the most important ingredients. ;)

This is absolutely true... (I guess, I wasn't around :)) But the litre effect is way down, not to many engines putting out significantly more than 100 horse pr liter. If Klingaman stretched his mouse to 8000 (I don't know), he is in the same rpm segment as many other street/strip racers...

If no one supports these guys, we are actually going back in performance step by step as the know-how is lost. Cal-look/vw tuning has become a spectator sport it seems, thinking inside the box is the norm, and when you think about it, the California look would not have existed if those early boys just copied what guys had done years before. I bet they also heard their fathers saying "don't waste your money boy!" "The adventure is outside the box!" ;) Thats why I like Monkey Boys intiative with his mouse motor quest

Title: Re: Small powerhouses and old school Post by: richie on November 27, 2007, 15:46:08 PM The internet killed it,its too easy to just copy someone elses recipe now to get a reliable engine that will run 12s and with a bit of work 11s.The fact that it was all trial and error back then,you only read about the succesfull cars & combos,I am sure that to every 11second mouse motor there were a 100 broken ones :o There are a few hardy people that I know running 12s with less than 1800cc and driving them to the track and back,always on regular pump gas,no fiberglass panels,real steel cars,so it can be done.But i am sure they will keep the specs to themselves as its takes time & effort to achieve this. cheers richie,uk "If your not breaking parts your not trying hard enough" Title: Re: Small powerhouses and old school Post by: stealth67vw on November 27, 2007, 16:12:42 PM Another thing that helps is the gear box. Kris Klingaman and Mike Smith both used 4.86 ring and pinions and something like 1.70 3rd and 1.31 4th. Title: Re: Small powerhouses and old school Post by: The Ideaman on November 27, 2007, 17:44:08 PM This is absolutely true... (I guess, I wasn't around Smiley) But the litre effect is way down, not to many engines putting out significantly more than 100 horse pr liter. If Klingaman stretched his mouse to 8000 (I don't know), he is in the same rpm segment as many other street/strip racers... More like 9500 rpm. 4.86x1.31x26" tire at 9500rpm is about 115mph. These weren't street cars, but highly strung race motors in full weight cars. I remember A/MC and B/MC cars at englishtown as a kid. (http://www.turbocreations.com/fj20/philske20corolla/ke20karpathioss1b.jpg) I know it isn't a VW, but does anybody remember this car competing?

I agree richie....thank you for posting this. Every "hot rod" VW featured in the mags seems to have the "internet motor" recipe...94 x 82 or 94 x 84, FK8, CB CNC heads, 48IDAs, MSD everything...etc. I remember how "amazed" some naysayers were about a few of the smaller motors I helped out with. SODA's pump gas, stock-valved 1679, 14.70 on radials, full stock weight car, stock gears raised some eyebrows. Motor ran 40IDFs with 32mm vents. Roger's guys @ Heads Up did the stock valve heads, very conservative porting, SS valves, Bryan ran tall CB manifolds. Cam was like Engle 120 with 1.25's. If we would have gone something like 125, and 48IDAs and half a point more compression, I think it would have gone 13's. I helped screw together a 1776 built with mostly used extras that were collecting spiders and dust, old FI case, Engle 125, 1.25 rockers, Fred Simpson 40 x 35 heads, 48IDAs, old 1-3/4 header. Went 13.01 off trailer in lightened '66 with slicks. Same car with 1914, FK10, 42 x 37 welded 10.5:1 went 12.81. As far as motors today, if guys wanted to build 149 cu in motors (2.3+L) on the ragged edge for the street, built to the same tune level as KK's motor...personally I think you'd need much larger valves to squeeze 100hp+/liter, meaning moving valves in VW heads or going route of aftermarket castings and having them modified accordingly. Big 560cc+ cylinders are going to want a lot more mixture than 440cc cylinders to run 8000rpm and make 100/liter. Or go the way some guys have and put a turbo on. No offense to anybody, but to me some guys bolt turbos on instead of finding a way to get air into motor on its own. Please don't kick me off the Lounge!!! ;D I think KS is right too. Without going to an experienced expert and settling for some mass produced heads for monkiboys idea of a 88 x 69, you'd most likely fall way short of making the power, especially across the powerband. SODA's motor was completely driveable, even though it would go 7 thou. Sure, it was cammy, and needed to be spun to 4K to get the most out of it, but it was crisp off idle, no flat spots or garbling or coughing. I think most of that had to do with heads and not being overcammed. I think a "ragged edge" car/motor would be fun, but its limited use ability would turn me off. I'm still of the "sports car motor" ilk. Get in it after a few hours of detailing, turn key, go scare yourself for hours.

What i know is that Klingaman had nitrous on the 1776 engine ! I remember the hot VW's articel , i think so . It was the time when Mike Smith did 11 passes with his red 67 street car and 1776 nitrous engine . Udo Title: Re: Small powerhouses and old school Post by: SOB/RFH on November 27, 2007, 20:41:10 PM Mike Smith used N2O while street racing back in the pre sanctioned body days...I remeber someone (I think Dyno Don) telling about the first time he got down to Nabisco and did beat the heavy hitter V8:s with that stock looking VW.........That was the white car.....and then there was the red car and that was more of a street car (I presume)...........Anyway how can it be that Kris Klingamans car weighted 1770 lbs in race trim and 2020 in street trim....more gasoline?.....It took me years to beat the 12.40 of Chris with my car and it was driven to and back from the track.......true 2020 lbs weight and GUESS WHAT!!! I SHIFTED AT 6500 RPM!!!!! AND WENT THRUE LIGHT UNDER 6K!!! That is what I think is the diffrence between today and yesterday.....The low rpm:s power is made at and the longivty that comes from that!!!! Title: Re: Small powerhouses and old school Post by: BeetleBug on November 27, 2007, 20:53:35 PM After looking closer at Klingamans 1751ccm engine it`s clear he did not use nitrous. Having punched the numbers in three different ET/HP calculators they all came up with between 186 and 188hp - cool number from a such a small engine. But with a mandatory tear down after 10 passes it was pretty hard core. So that`s the limit using some heavily ported heads from some of the big names in the industry - a little bit over 100hp/litre? Why? is the old fashion design of our engine the main reason why it`s not possible to get more or is it the way we build them? BB

I would say it is due to the lack of and unwillings to adopt, newer technologies such as roller cams, aftermarket heads and blocks, cams, light valve trains, FI. and yes even turbos. There is also the limitation of the trans to deal with. --louis Title: Re: Small powerhouses and old school Post by: Animal on November 27, 2007, 21:27:33 PM Boy i like this thread,reminds me of my first 1679cc engine. My stock heads came from Dave Kawell witt ss valves and dual springs. With a w130 cam and IDA's the engine made some 100 hp. When i switched to kawells 40x35.5 heads fully ported and polished en raised compression (12:1) i ran in the 13's with a 4.86 gearbox with superdiff ;D Title: Re: Small powerhouses and old school Post by: BeetleBug on November 27, 2007, 21:38:21 PM I would say it is due to the lack of and unwillings to adopt newer technologies Now that is a statement I find very interesting!

You are ofcourse so right you can be. If you hand over a VW type1 engine to for example a Kawasaki engine designer what could he do with just two valves? With their fancy equipment and sophisticated math, well over 100 horses pr lliter could be expected, but at a lower rpm than you would think... And how about a Nascar engine

But I don’t know anyone like that, but I DO know a road racing tuner that made the front page of a international Road racing Magazine. He took a fully factory race tuned Kawa and got it do deliver more torque and hp than the factory did, still within the class rules...! He is a welder during the daytime and works on these bikes in the evenings... his only weapon is a old Norwegian textbook from the fifties and a casio calculator... the book is called "CarTuning" I think if these textbooks were more common place in the days before the "internet" deigns... Could this be a way to go back in time? Or is this what everybody does and I’m just in the dark?? ;D Title: Re: Small powerhouses and old school Post by: Jim Ratto on November 28, 2007, 00:39:19 AM maybe I am PUI-ing but we need heads with swappable intake port inserts, like carb venturies. ;D Title: Re: Small powerhouses and old school Post by: Zach Gomulka on November 28, 2007, 02:15:44 AM I think 100hp per liter with this old architecture is asking a lot- especially if you want to drive it often! What I think makes a good powerful street engine is one that makes 1hp and 1 ft/lb of torque per cubic inch of displacement. Like a 1679 that makes 102hp and 102ft/lbs of torque. If you want a little more, try getting that 102hp/102tq to the rollers. Sounds like fun to me ::) Title: Re: Small powerhouses and old school Post by: Udo on November 28, 2007, 06:45:59 AM

If I understand your reply correctly you`re saying that we would probably need to rev the engine to the extreme, use big valves and high dollar parts to be able to reach the "next" level? And the engine would still be a ticking bomb due to "stretching the limits"? JHU and Louisb is in a way turning this thread in the direction I was hoping for; what will happen if we are willing to adapt to newer technologies and use the theories available today? Will we still end up with the same results we see today? If the answer to that question is YES then we know we`re doing something right and has been doing so for many years. But if the answer is NO and we reach the "next level"......well, then we have learnt something new. Yes - it would be cool to build a small engine with the above in mind and see the result. Best rgs BB Title: Re: Small powerhouses and old school Post by: folkevogn on November 28, 2007, 10:25:55 AM Whats your defenition of "the next level"?? In my opinion going for bigger carbs,valves,displacment...etc is NOT the next level, its just pushing the limits of whats possible to put on a type 1 engine. I think this is one of the main reason why we aren`t reaching the next level. Most people just go bigger and hope for the best, bigger isn`t always better as we all know. To me "the next level" is FINESSE! F.ex take a 2007ccm that produces 183 hp at 7500rpm, if you can make the same engine produce 239 hp at 7500rpm then your taking it to the next level in my opinion. And I dont mean that you should slap on a turbo or EFI, because to me thats not TRUE cal-look.(but that another discussion ;)) Title: Re: Small powerhouses and old school Post by: Jon on November 28, 2007, 12:14:51 PM The bigger better route is the racers route I feel, they don’t mind having huge valves, changing springs after one event and so on. That path left on that route is rather short when it comes to the type1 platform, due to the dimensions of the poor thing. But surely that’s NOT what we are talking about, is it?? I thought we were talking about getting the most out of a mouse engine, sure you could use the same approach to a bigger lump and get more, but that is for the racers. The reason I was curious about Klingaman was because he must have had super nice heads, and he got high Volumetric Efficiency out of that engine. Sure he used a race cam and high revs, but I think that engine with a lesser cam would STILL be a efficient thing. ? Title: Re: Small powerhouses and old school Post by: BeetleBug on November 28, 2007, 13:09:15 PM Thank you for keeping the focus JHU. Are you saying that you believe it is possible to build a effiecent little thing without adding race thinking in the mix? And by efficient I mean 100hp/litre.

Hi BB! Yeah, I got off topic, sorry. I kind of misunderstood what guys were getting at. Seems everything today is BIG CC, no matter if it is race or hot street. Which is ok. Not knocking that. I would be VERY impressed to see a smaller displacement street engine (i.e. 1679, 1776, 1835...) tuned to the level that would get it into the 12 sec slot.....but still be "streetable" (no need to get into a "discussion about what streetable" is....my god, has THAT been over-argued!!!!), however a guy would go about it...it would take brains and patience. I think it comes down to reducing weight of reciprocating parts, reducing drag and windage, and making heads (and matching cam to) that have airspeed and flow characteristics to match bore x stroke and rpm needed (remember hp is a product of rpm). As you all know, you need extreme valve timing to get rpms into stratosphere, along with light stuff, and high CR to get most of cam timing. I keep threatening to build something like this, I have my old 94mm German case, and some other junk laying around..... ::) I know a 1914 isn't a mouse motor, it is more like a squirrel.. but how about a 1914 with 14:1, FK87, 1.5 rockers, 44 x 37 Super Flows and rest of the usual crap. 6lb Crown flywheel, aftermarket 5.352 rods, lightweight wrist pins, manicured skirts on 'A' pistons, relieved case webs....bla bla bla... I'd have to PUI to think of more stuff. ;D Key point is: matching head flow and airspeed and cam profile to get to the rpms you need, without making a slug. And keeping stuff as light and as free spinning as possible. Bye for now

Title: Re: Small powerhouses and old school Post by: Jim Ratto on November 28, 2007, 22:01:16 PM here's a question for the opinionated and technically minded.... if you HAD to choose one scenario (I know they're neither ideal), which would it be? "over"-ported heads (ports too large and lazy for cc and use of motor), but with conservative cam timing (like FK8?) "conservatively" ported heads (maybe cross section is too small for top rpm for cc), but with much hotter cam...like FK87 (275-280' @ .050")? Which one would you choose?

You could always tune the engine to be liveable at some rpm through cam advance, timing, induction and exhaust. Not much you can do about port velocity on heads that are too big.

The answer to the first part of that question is obviously yes, Formula Vee engines of 1600cc have put out something in the order of 180bhp for years but the answer to the second part is go try it, Lee/Kalle talk to G.A.C. (I can get you the phone number) who have been building this type of motor for quite a while and let us know how it's doing in 5 years (or let's say 30K miles time). It'll be a interesting experiment and I'm pleased to see someone's going to try it! :)

Title: Re: Small powerhouses and old school Post by: John Maher on November 30, 2007, 12:44:36 PM In my experience I find it’s possible to achieve an output of 90bhp/litre on what I regard as a perfectly streetable engine eg 2276cc making 204bhp... i.e. a street/strip motor. That’s equivalent to a 1679cc engine making 150bhp while still retaining a semblance of drivability. Is that possible with a 1679? Definitely, but it won’t be as relaxed a drive as the 2276cc motor. Stepping up to 100bhp/litre is certainly achievable but will start to stretch the boundaries of what might be regarded as streetable by some, most definitely in the case of the 1679cc motor. All depends on your definition of 'street motor'. If both engines were being built purely for the strip, you should be aiming a lot higher than 100bhp/litre but there’s no way they’d be getting used on the street. Larger motors will always make for a better street/strip engine because you can build in a good mix of mid-range torque and peak bhp. For best performance on the track you need power rather than torque and the mods required to get really good power out of a small n/a motor (big valves and ports, long duration cam etc) will push the rpm range sky-high, which has the effect of killing torque in the low and mid-range rpm—exactly where you need it for good performance on the street. The small cc, high hp motors from the ‘70s and early ‘80s mostly came about as a result of NHRA class rules, where permitted engine size was dictated by vehicle weight, which gave a lighter car with a well designed small capacity engine an advantage over the larger engined heavyweights. IMO it’s only when we see a racing class with a well defined set of restrictive rules that great developments take place. It focuses the mind and encourages people to push things to the limit. We saw it again with the introduction of PRA Pro Stock and Super Street. That was the first time VW n/a engines were being built where 48IDAs became the restricting factor and prompted the development of larger carbs and even some alternative induction systems etc etc. Racing technology always ends up trickling down to the street. As an extreme example, take a look at NHRA Pro Stock 500 cubic inch engines. Normally aspirated, pushrods, two valves per cylinder and a pair of 4 barrel carbs. Working within those restrictions for decades has seen continual development push power towards 1400bhp….. that’s more than 165bhp/litre. That’s equivalent to a n/a 1679cc engine making 277bhp! Only problem with working within a very defined set of rules is the optimised combinations that work so well on one particular engine won’t necessarily transfer across to another engine being built to a different specification. Take British Formula Vee. They use a 1285cc single port engine, with stock valve sizes and make around 100bhp. They work incredibly well considering the limitations of the rules and are a good example of what continued development can deliver, but bolt one into a road going car and you won’t get very far. Also, apply the bhp/litre formula and you fall well short of what might be regarded as a great performing street engine i.e. approx 80bhp/litre so it doesn't work as a great model for a high powered street car. Sometimes the focus is too much on the peak bhp figure. The car that performs the best on the track is the one that makes best AVERAGE power in the rpm range it sees through each gear. It's the area under the curve that counts. Title: Re: Small powerhouses and old school Post by: folkevogn on November 30, 2007, 13:24:20 PM

First of all, THANKS for a brilliant post! I'm curious as to why a smaller engine would suffer more from "efficiency" than a bigger one? Surely the weight of the reciprocating parts must be less in a engine of smaller volume? (If this isn't so there must be a optimal size somewhere where the weight of the parts (wear) meets optiamal output?) What do you think the "next level" is John?

Q uote from : JHU on Nove m be r 30, 2007, 13:51:38 PM First of all, THANKS for a brilliant post! I'm curious as to why a sm alle r e ngine would suffe r m ore from "e fficie ncy" than a bigge r one ? Sure ly the we ight of the re ciprocating parts m ust be le ss in a e ngine of sm alle r volum e ? (If this isn't so the re m ust be a optim al size som e whe re whe re the we ight of the parts (we ar) m e e ts optiam al output?)

Generally speaking, reducing the weight of components won't make any difference to power output (assuming all parts concerened are capable of doing their job). Lighter parts, such as rods, crank, flywheel, pistons have less rotational inertia which allows the engine to accelerate more quickly from one rpm point to another, so performance on the track is improved while measured power remains the same. That's why one 200bhp engine can be faster than another 200hp engine. Same goes for vehicle weight and aerodynamics. An improvement in either will make for better ETs with no change in engine power.
Q uote from : JHU on Nove m be r 30, 2007, 13:51:38 PM W hat do you think the "ne x t le ve l" is John?

It all depends on intended use for the engine. From a racer’s point of view I believe a major limiting factor is the VW’s stroke to bore ratio. Look at any serious n/a professional race series (F1, NHRA Pro Stock etc) and you’ll find they use a large bore in comparison to crank stroke. Increasing bore and reducing stroke delivers two significant benefits to a high rpm race engine… the shorter stroke reduces piston speed and the larger bore makes room for bigger valves….. Imagine a theoretical drag race series dictating a maximum capacity of 2276cc (normally 82mm x 94mm). If the rules allow any combination of bore and stroke I’d be looking at say a 101.6mm bore rather than 94mm, and reducing stroke from 82mm to 70mm (2270cc). A set of suitably modified 101.6mm heads would easily outflow anything you could fit on a 94mm bore engine. Second major gain is a reduction in piston speed. At 7000rpm, an 82mm stroke motor has an average piston speed of 3766 feet per minute. Reduce stroke, the piston has less distance to travel in the same time and speed falls to 3215 feet/min for the 70mm crank at the same rpm. Therefore higher rpm is on the cards with the 70mm stroke and the bigger ports and valves of the 101.6mm heads can make some serious power, assuming they’re teamed up with suitable cam, induction, exhaust etc Horsepower lost to friction is also a factor with approx 75% of an engine's friction hp being caused by ring to cylinder contact. The reduction in stroke more than offsets the extra contact area of the larger diameter rings so more power is being used to turn the engine than being lost as heat. Currently there’s no real incentive to persuade someone to build a short stroke, big bore n/a engine because having a higher bhp/litre ratio isn't going to win you the race if the guy in the next lane has more total bhp. But if you're looking to maximise bhp/litre, IMO this would be the route to explore. In the meantime max stroke/max bore engines will dominate but at the expense of bhp/litre and unless something comes along to cap engine size, the obvious route is to increase capacity by whatever means practical so naturally people will continue to opt for the longest stroke crank they can physically fit in the block. The fact remains, for a tractable street motor you can't beat an increase in displacement. If you want an easy route to force more air through your engine, make lots of power, have good driveability on the street and bump up bhp/litre, fit mappable EFI and a turbocharger. ;)

Probably would but thats cheating you know ;) Thank you for your post John. Very interesting info! Title: Re: Small powerhouses and old school Post by: Peter Shattock on December 02, 2007, 00:15:17 AM All very interesting this, clearly enthusiasm for small cc engines is alive and well in these parts. For my part I think you need to have a realistic expectation if you’re going to head down the small cc na rapid street car route. It’s a fairly obvious thing to say but the faster you want to go the more difficult it becomes to keep the car streetable (not that this is unique to small cc engines). That said personally I’ve always thought when I want to drive my car its to go for a raz not just bumble about in it wishing it was more tractable comfortable, quiet etc. Its not that the car is unreliable but you need to want to drive it. As with all things there are compromises to make and we all draw the line at a different point, hence the constant argument about what a street car is. I for one am keen to chase the na 100bhp per litre mark on pump gas, if for nothing else just for the achievement. Although as John has suggested above it’s not all about bhp. To turn a good ET particularly when you chose a small cc option, maximising other areas is even more important then when you choose a more powerful combination. Interestingly though I’m not quite sure it’s as difficult as most people might have you believe to get to a point where you can go quicker than most people with a similar combination. I think most people are content with a combination once it’s in the back of their car and running ok. Then there’s the likes of the people that frequent this forum who take a strange fascination in spending lots of time, effort and often money to achieve more with less. I run a na 1776cc because I like the small engine combination and it’s a common boring old size that most people pass by on there way to bigger and “better” things. The biggest problem we all face is the lack of R&D as the majority of us developing our combinations do not have hours of backed up results at the track and dyno. All in all though looking at some of the numbers people are turning on here looks like people are doing pretty well. Just for the record does anyone know how fast people have been with a na 1776cc motor (regular 69 x 90.5 combination) in a race or street car in the past, as it would be nice to know what to aim for. Glad to see the small motors are still chasing down the big guns! Title: Re: Small powerhouses and old school Post by: BeetleBug on December 02, 2007, 00:23:40 AM

This is obviously both right and interesting, but its not really a answer to what I asked about, or rather what I tried to ask about (English is hard).

I think this also could be used as a pro "short stroke engine" argument, but what I really is aiming at is the later part of you sentence, the "teaming" up sentence.

Print Page - Small powerhouses and old school

The most expensive parts in this concept is the JE pistons, but I feel they are nessecery if the calculated power should be optained. All the parts will of course be inspected and modified(linebored,shuffle pinned,balanced,fullflowed etc..........) to take the higher output. Heads: The heads will recive a little welding in some areas and ported to achive as high flow as possible in the limitations of the calculated port size. Cam: I will use a cam with split duration, fk45 intake and fk44 exhaust.The less ex duration will give a superior midrange without loosing top end, if the ex port flows enough, a good choise when using a "Hi-Po" engine on the street. I have decided to use a 40mm intake valve because of the 86mm bore, and the valve will not be moved to the center of the cylinder,a bigger valve will be to much shrouded from the cylinder wall. Calculation: The formula I will use to see how much rpm the 40mm valve will be good for is: RPM=3300000xPort dia xPort dia/BorexBore xStroke This formula is based on a mean port velocity at 110m/s or(360ft/s), and the Port dia is the smallest area in the port. As this engine is going to be used as a street engine the smallest port size I will use is 0,88 x valve dia(0,88x40=35,2mm) RPM calculation:3300000x35,2x35,2/86x86x69=8012rpm The teoretical rpm where peak power will be is 8012 rpm. Now we have the RPM,diplacement but not the Bmep, a realistic Bmep is between 12-13 bar(171-185psi), so I choose 12,5bar Bmep.With this information we can calculate the POWER of the "mouse motor". Formula: P=Displ x rpm x Bmep/910 POWER=1,603 x 8012 x 12,5 / 910 = 176,4hp This is the power that could be expected from the "mouse motor" if everything is properly done. With properly done I mean everything like heads,compression,cam timing,exhaust length,intake length,friction etc..................... . I will start on this project in the next week but as I run a company it will take some time to finish it, probably in mars 2008. During that time I will keep you updated with pictures and info as the project continous. When the "mouse motor" is done there will be som serious dyno testing and tuning, hopefully we will see the numbers that i come up with in the calculations above. To me,this is what I belive is "Thinking outside the box" and "The next level". With Best Regards Johannes Persson JP Motorsport Sweden

WOW, what else can I say? That sounds like a hefty output of such a small capacity! I just hope you keep us informed when you start building this powerful dwarf. This small/original parts approach has old school written all over it, except for those nice pistons, (BTW how much would one loose by using stock pistons with their fat piston rings? Or is it to avoid "ring flutter") And it's just what I expected, the big guys use simple formulas to "home" in on the target, but you are the first one that has been willing to show them. I will have a good time checking over my engine with these formulas when I have an night free.

I think you are right Lawrence, another big thing was the lack of over the shelf parts, it will be cool to see all these Mouse motors beeing built, and that makes me wonder about thing John Mahler said about racing beeing one of the most impotant ways to push the limits.

Title: Re: Small powerhouses and old school Post by: n2o on December 04, 2007, 15:52:15 PM Hi Johannes, Is there any smartness behind your choice of compression height? What does it mean if you move the weight of the piston up or down over the rod? I do understand choice of compression height, when you have long stroke, but in this engine is there any gain? Thanks Roar Lunde Title: Re: Small powerhouses and old school Post by: Johannes Persson on December 04, 2007, 16:38:29 PM Hi Roar, Perhaps you already no about this, but this is the reasons. 1: You do not get that much piston "rattle" when the the piston pin is closer to the rings,means less blow by. 2: It is very important to get as short push rods and cyl studs as possible, when rpm is going up a shorter(stiffer,lighter) is extremely important and the rgidity of the cylinder and heads are improved a lot, (better valve control).You also end up with a narrower engine that fits better in your car , win win situation. Regards Johannes

Title: Re: Small powerhouses and old school Post by: folkevogn on December 04, 2007, 23:54:43 PM Now we have the RPM,diplacement but not the Bmep, a realistic Bmep is between 12-13 bar(171-185psi), so I choose 12,5bar Bmep.With this information we can calculate the POWER of the "mouse motor". Is it possible to calulate the Bmep?Whats the reason that you estimate the Bmep to be 12-13bar(why not 10 or 15?)Is it link between CR and Bmep?

Q uote from : folk e vogn on De ce m be r 04, 2007, 23:54:43 PM Now we have the R PM,diplace m e nt but not the Bm e p, a re alistic Bm e p is be twe e n 12-13 bar(171-185psi), so I choose 12,5bar Bm e p.W ith this inform ation we can calculate the PO W ER of the "m ouse m otor".

BMEP (brake mean effective pressure) is a useful way of comparing efficiency of various engines, regardless of capacity or manufacturer. BMEP formula below calculates AVERAGE pressure (psi) acting on the piston during the entire four stroke cycle. BMEP =(2471.174 x Torque) / engine cc To find torque from Johannes calculations (176.4bhp @ 8012 rpm).... Torque (ftlb) = (bhp x 5252) / RPM so....... Torque = (176.4 x 5252) / 8012 = 115.6ftlb i.e 115.6ftlb @ 8012rpm Plug the torque value into the BMEP formula and you have... BMEP =(2474.174 x 115.6ftlb) / 1602cc = 178.5psi = 12.3 bar The maths and physics used to calculate the engine's power potential are sound. Now it's simply a matter of making it reality. Very interesting project. Looking forward to the seeing the results.

Q uote from : Johanne s Pe rsson on De ce m be r 02, 2007, 22:54:48 PM The form ula I will use to se e how m uch rpm the 40m m valve will be good for is: R PM=3300000x Port dia x Port dia/Bore x Bore x Strok e This form ula is base d on a m e an port ve locity at 110m /s or(360ft/s), and the Port dia is the sm alle st are a in the port.

Hi, this calculation above ( I believe) is used to determine the port velocity as compared to a measurment on a Pitot Tube not the actual .55 Mach, or 613 Ft/second that some other caculations use, Like this Example RPM = ( FPS * CA ) / ( Bore * Bore * Stroke * .00353 ) where; RPM = point of desired Peak HP

FPS = Feet per Second or 613.975 CA = Cross-Sectional Area in Square Inches (smallest measured) FPS = ( Bore * Bore * Stroke * RPM * .00353 ) / CA CA = ( Bore * Bore * Stroke * RPM * .00353 ) / FPS ( I just wanted to point that out in case some folks are confused by reading various formulas...) Thanks, Title: Re: Small powerhouses and old school Post by: Udo on December 05, 2007, 19:44:50 PM We had 1600 cc engines up to 130 hp and 1776 cc up to 150 hp in the mid 80's . That was a lot of fun to race against the bigger cc engines . But at that time we only worked with german camshafts . Today there should be some more power on those engines :) Udo Title: Re: Small powerhouses and old school Post by: Jim Ratto on December 05, 2007, 20:17:48 PM once you get the small cc engine to produce 85 or 100hp per liter, which may equate to 165 hp or so, what about making the hp work in a Type 1? "Work" meaning having a fast street car from light to light, getting on highway, and also getting down the strip faster than your neighbor? I think things to consider are gearing to make the engine "work" and to take adavantage of torque multiplication of "closer" gears, since the engine itself is going to give up a wide torque spread. I don't think first and second need to be wall climbers, in fact a slightly taller 1st on a 4.37 r/p might be the trick, to allow the car to get some distance through the rpm. Unsprung weight is a biggie too. Big heavy wheels and tires are gonna slow a little motor way down. ERCOs are a must I would guess.....

As I suggested previously the “combination” of engine, gearbox and car becomes far more important when there is less slack available with the motor. I think I’ve got some decent ratios in the box and have saved weight where I can (within my own constraints) so my interior is more race car than comfy Cal Looker but its drivable to the track and back and has turned a best of 12.44 @ 105mph (without the fan belt and with a stinger and slicks) from a regular 69x90.5 1776. Winter plans hope to see me going a bit quicker next year but time will tell, as progress has been slow over the years. I remember racing Richie in 2001 (I think), it was my first time out with the car, he ran 12.8ish (his first 12 if I remember) and I ran a 13.0 but here we are 6 years later and he is down to 9.7s and I’m still in the mid 12’s! It will be interesting to see how people get on with there winter plans and see the numbers from the dyno sessions and more importantly at the track, as the Dyno figures are for the bench racers and mag features, it’s the ET that counts (IMHO). One thing Jim was wrong about though, the car has gone much quicker with BRM’s than it did with the Erco’s so I’ll be sticking to the mouldy old mags for now! Just wondered if anyone has had any thoughts on how quickly people have gone with a na 1776 in the past (race and street cars), I’m sure there has been plenty of quick cars over the years, so if any one can recall a few cars and numbers I would appreciate it. Happy winter tinkering to you all. Title: Re: Small powerhouses and old school Post by: Peter Shattock on December 11, 2007, 12:33:40 PM Slightly off target but Brian Hyerstay (not sure about the spelling) runs a 1679 g/dragster into the low nines in the US and is said to produce around 220HP and goes through the lights at 11,000 rpm! Not sure it would be the best engine combination in a street sedan though, but that is a fair dollop of HP from a 1679. Check out the bugin 32 DVD as there are a few runs shown the rail is called superior steel. Needless to say it sounds bonkers! It was also featured in HotVWs in 2000 I think so those who have a back catalogue might like to take a look and post it up here for the record. If I remember rightly there were credits to the Bergs, the Eversons and Mr Klingerman, so there are a lot of proper people involved.

I heard of a nine second dragster (runs at Englishtown, NJ) which has a naturally aspirated motor of around 1900cc but pulling low nines out of a 1679 is quite something. That said I suspect getting that motor to the shops would be "quite something" too! Title: Re: Small powerhouses and old school

Actually it sounds really good on tick over as well. You guy's building 1679's have a lot to live up to, but I’m looking forward to hearing some little screamers at EBI2.

You need to talk to Mike Ishiko next time round, he has some interesting small motor information. They're retarding the ignition at ten five and then letting it run out some more. Some crazy a$$ stuff and all very clever! 8) Title: Re: Small powerhouses and old school Post by: Ole on December 12, 2007, 10:53:29 AM Here's another mouse-motor: It's Siegfried Volland's Autocross engine, raced at the European Autocross Championship in the early 80's. (http://blogsimages.skynet.be/images/000/677/333_f7797952d1a529c9cfdabf6363233f76.JPG) I don't know much about this engine, I was told it's a 1585cc (69x85.5) and that it makes (made) about 160 horses... It has a Kugelfischer mechanical injection, KRE throttle bodies (IDA-size), Superflow heads, Autocraft rockers and a big dry-sump oil pump. I hope some day we'll find the time to put it back into service and fire it up again... I can already hear it... ::)

Title: Re: Small powerhouses and old school Post by: Jim Ratto on December 12, 2007, 17:03:08 PM I think all of us would be very impressed with a 1679cc that made 150hp, wouldn't we? In the right car, driven in anger, that ought to equate to low, low 13's, maybe high 12's. Myself, I wouldn't be so worried about the timeslip...if it scares the hair off of you when you push the go pedal, you've done a good job. I think a Lounge "Engine of the Year" bit would be cool....hp vs. displacement vs. longevity vs...dare I say it, fuel consumption. Kind of like an index of thermal efficiency.

I wonder with the cooling effect of bio fuels if the regular squirrel fans would be good enough to control temps on the street? Anyone fancy being the guinea pig? Jim makes a good point, in all this high octane talk we should not forget the fun. Its not all about the numbers, a good razz in your street car that’s got a bit of a sting in the tale is all you really need to make the world look a bit brighter! 12's with 150 hp is possible I would say, assuming the box has the right ratios and the car has been on a bit of a diet, not to mention the driver! K-Roc I've just looked at the Bugin 32 DVD and you're right they are stock looking heads (externally). It would be good to hear from Brian on here as he clearly has his house in order and he must be paving the way with HP for a 1679 flat four. If he is prepared to share some information (especially if he is moving on) I’m sure there will be plenty of people on here who would like to listen to what he has to say. The way this small engine thing has taken off we could end up with 16 car heads up 1679 field at EBI2, I might even have to sling my big bore 90.5's and step up to some 88's! That said if Brian jumps over the pond and enters I think we're all doomed.

Today there are many dynoed hi-performance VW engines out there, by using thier numbers in my formula will show you what is a realistic bmep to use. That is the reason why I "picked" 12,5. To John Maher & K-Rock. Thanks for good input. The best way to determine where VE drops off is to use the 0,55 mach index calculation, as K-Roc mentioned. It is a little bit more "tricky" than using my formula above because you have to know the efficiency of the port(flow/m2 vs crank degree). This must be done because you can have two ports with the same area but with different flow numbers, the one with the higher flow will reach 0,55 mach at higher rpm. I can strongly recomend the PRI show, it has been three days of HARDCORE racing. BTW I recived my JE "mouse motor" pistons today I will post some pictures later.

I did one 1600 a few years ago with mostly stock parts (10:1 C/R and a 280 deg cam) and we got a 14.6 out of it in a heavy car. My experience, if it has any value, is the small motor, light car equals light flywheel....heavy car and small motor on the other hand can successfully be ran with heavy flywheel....both combos need high 1:st gearing and high revs to move and will eat R/P:s like they eat hamburgers in the US...........So what R/P is going to be used and will it survive the first 20 set up runs on the sticky local track or will it be saved by a lot of dyno time :) .........It’s about time that someone kill Sweden’s "best ET so far with a 1600 cc motor" from back in the early 90's.....13.1 in an oval body car, owned by a guy named "Knutte".

A light flywheel will give a great throttle response, but explain to me how a light flywheel will increase the RPM and give higher hp readings on a dyno? I know Johannes has a tranny with really high gearing made for his blue super beetle and the R/D engine that revs over 9500. If he had a "normal" tranny he would do the quarter in only 3 gears. Title: Re: Small powerhouses and old school Post by: Johannes Persson on December 28, 2007, 00:01:10 AM Hi Again, Lawrence, the light flywheel will affect driveability, the motor will rew, both up and down, faster which can be experienced like its with.This engine will primarely be built for the "strip", but with a heavier flywheel it will be very streetable. Bruce, the launch rpm in the car that I am going to use(type 1 -63 1650lbs) will probably be between 7-8k. K-Rock, There will be time slips the comming summer with this "Mouse Motor", the most objectiv dyno is the dragstrip, is´nt it?. I am not trying to "show off" or "brag" about doing this "Mouse Motor" project,I do it because of my dedication to the type 1 engine,learning and understanding the internal combustion engine and shareing experience with you Loungers. Tom, I will e-mail you later. SOB, good input.The car to be used with the "Mouse Motor" is a type 1 -63 1650lbs(750kg)at the starting line, it has a low ratio transaxel R/P 4.86:1 close ratio with 1.37:1 on the fourth gear.The rims are Saco five bolt and the tires are M&H 6x26-15. On a small engine, the weight of the rotating engine parts has to be in relation to the vehicle weight and gearing. BTW in 1997 I did several 12.50s 165km/h with my 1679cc in my old yellow type 1. The shortblock is almost done by now. Enjoy the pictures. Johannes Persson Title: Re: Small powerhouses and old school Post by: K-Roc on December 28, 2007, 00:26:13 AM

harder to "cruse"

Hi Johannes I just want to let you know that I think it is awesome that you are able to make this project happen, I wish I had the means and time to do the same, In my mind I figure that with the flywheel that light that on launch once the inertia is released from the flywheel it would be hard to replace it to keep the car accelrating out of the hole and down the track. However with you old times of 12.50's at 165 Kmh, that would prove me wrong :) and that wouldn't be the first time! LOL! Good luck with the project and I look forward to seeing some killer results.

The flywheel has no effect on how high an engine can rev. The engine's breathing, cam, valvetrain, etc. are what affect the max rpm. If the engine is on a dyno that uses a water brake, you won't see the effect of the flywheel since that type of dyno takes static rpm power readings. However, if the engine is in a car which is on an inertial dyno, a light flywheel will show a higher hp reading than the same engine with a heavy flywheel. The resistance provided by an inertial dyno is the moment of inertia of the rollers the rear tires ride on. The dyno measures how fast the car can accelerate the rollers. A lighter flywheel means there's more power available to accelerate the rollers.

Bruce it depends on weather the water brake engine dyno is computer controled and you can acclerate the engine, Whats called a "power run" not a static test. THe effect of lighter internal components will show during this type of testing. A superflow 902 or a dts dyno can carryout this type of testing.

Title: Re: Small powerhouses and old school Post by: Johannes Persson on January 11, 2008, 01:41:18 AM Description of the pictures will follow: (http://www.vwnorge.no/JHU/project/jpm/019.jpg) Welding of combustion chambers, mainly to get the desired comp ratio because of the small displasement.

(http://www.vwnorge.no/JHU/project/jpm/0208.jpg) (http://www.vwnorge.no/JHU/project/jpm/021.jpg) A small welding is done on the sparkplug side of the intakeport, the welding is massive to the underside of the head. (http://www.vwnorge.no/JHU/project/jpm/022.jpg) Welded and machined intake flange. (http://www.vwnorge.no/JHU/project/jpm/023.jpg) New bigger alu bronze seats installed, alu bronze has the same heat expansion as aluminum and it also transfer heat a lot better than for example steel seats. (http://www.vwnorge.no/JHU/project/jpm/024.jpg)

(http://www.vwnorge.no/JHU/project/jpm/025.jpg)

(http://www.vwnorge.no/JHU/project/jpm/027.jpg) Combustion chamber,intake and ex port done, note how close the camber wall is to the valve on the none sparkplug side, this is to get the extension of the intake port shaped as a venturi.This boosts the flow from 10mm lift and up it also improves the quality of incomming mixture, in my experience, unshrouding the vale at this side will improve the flow on low lifts but will decrease the power. (http://www.vwnorge.no/JHU/project/jpm/030.jpg) The intake port is filled on the long side radius with BELZONA 1111 to get the correct shape and sizes. (http://www.vwnorge.no/JHU/project/jpm/031.jpg) Big Beef has become "SMALL STEAK" (http://www.vwnorge.no/JHU/project/jpm/032.jpg) I am really suprised of the flow numbers from a 40mm intake valve and 86mm bore. Flownumbers CFM at 25"H2O. lift(mm) Flow(intake) Flow(exhaust) 2 42,6 39,5 4 81,3 73,3 6 111,4 96,5 8 136,7 115,5 10 159,4 130,3 12 177,5 141,8 14 188,2 148,5 16 194,9 152,5 The Port velocity(intake) meassured in the center of the port at the flange is 298ft/s this is where the port is the biggest. Same measurements on the ex port is 324ft/s.The outlet is only 34mm, going too big on the outlet will slow down the speed and the overall power will drop. First I did some tests with an old head to see what intake flow numbers I could reach, when I saw the unexpected high numbers I had to increase the ex valve from 32mm to 35,5mm.

You use a Pitot Tube to measure localized Velocity on the flow bench, Johannes, nice work ! I have never heard of Belzonia 1111, is that an Aluminum based Epoxy of some sort? ( I use stuff called Splash Zone from ZSPar) Reher Morrison sell it. For your 40mm intake valve, what did you use for the Seat throat ID diameter and Bowl diameter under the seat ? I usually shoot for about 89-90% for the throat and then enlarge the bowl on the High RPM stuff. Giving away a few secrets there LOL, ie: NOT blowing out the chamber wall to valve seat... I have seen some large increases in Flow bench numbers on heads with heavily unshrouded chambers only to suffer in actual power in real life. one of those areas that the flow bench will lie to you unless you know what you are doing K-Roc Title: Re: Small powerhouses and old school Post by: yvre on January 12, 2008, 10:26:14 AM Man, what a great thread!!! Title: Re: Small powerhouses and old school Post by: Johannes Persson on January 12, 2008, 15:54:22 PM Hi there, N2O:The highest speed I recorded was 356ft/s, on the short side radius close to the seat.The velocity is meassured at 28" of depression. K-Roc:I use the pitot tube as a reference tool just to check velocities in different areas in the port. The seat ID is 90% of the valve dia and the bowl is a little bigger, not as big as I use to make them on an all out race engine.I have also noticed if your engine is valve restricted you can go as big as 93% of valve dia with very good results, the seat has then to be cut to a special shape. The Belzona 1111 is an epoxy that I really do not know wath it contains but it is for me so far the best I have tried, no problems to this point.I gues you can find info on the internet.

Thank you for answering my question. I hope you don`t mind me babbling along regarding your header? So the header is tuned to 8000 rpms and if you used a "ordinary" header the #2 and #4 tubes would be too long. But what would be the difference if you compared your custom made header to a "out of the box ordinary" one? Lack of respons? Less hp? Less driveability?

If the rest of the engine is tuned at a high rpm a too long header hurts the output a lot. 67-indeed/DVK:It is a combination between light rotating parts and good cylinder pressure that makes an engine snap. lawrence:Thank you for asking, that is my own product I make those together with my fivestud rockers which fits on the MS230 heads. The final is comming up with this project and that is ofcourse to put the "Mouse Motor" on the "bullshit detector"(dyno) and see what it makes. Hopefully I will have time to do this in a two week period. Regards Johannes Persson

Title: Re: Small powerhouses and old school Post by: Torben Alstrup on January 29, 2008, 12:06:55 PM Hello. Very interesting heads, - among all the other stuff. I´m very interested in seeing how this turns out. I made a set of heads with chambers almost exactly like that, 40 X 34 valves though, and with an oval shape intake port a couple of years back, for a 1680 engine. Cam in the same duration range, but with smaller carbs. Bottom line was that it didnt perform that well. It felt wild on the street, but the BS detector said otherwise. When it was taken apart again, the chambers showed a very inefficient plug side, judging from the carbon patterns. I may have made a bad intake port shape without knowing it. Johannes. If you dont mind sharing, what I/E ratio does it have with the small exhaust valve ? I´m guessing rather low.

I see you are using non counterweighted crankshaft. How balanced were you able to get the crankshaft down too without the counterweights? Here is something for you singleport fans.

Hello all, I'm Anthony and I work @ Heads Up Performance. I've been working with Taylor for "way too long" on this small motor project. The object was to try to run a bug competively in NHRA SS/CC again. Well, they moved the class to Modified Stock and renamed it SS/FS. Same weight break and rules, so we didn't get too bummed. Taylor is using a 1967 sedan, so it will have the Klingamann, Mike Smith look, my all time favorite drag cars. The motor is going to be a 94x60, Aluminium rods, roller cam, custom everything 101 inch. The heads are "highly modified" 044 castings with Heads Up/ Componant Development 1.8:1 rockers. I don't even want to think how much time I have in these little babies. They just hit the bench the other day, 250 CFM @.700 @ 25" on our Super Flow 600 bench. The valve are 45x36 with really small chambers. Getting compression is really hard on this

motor. We are going to fire the motor up on 48 idf carbs first, and maybe run it down the track, but then switch to fuel injection after. I can't wait to finish this motor. I've been thinking about this kind of combo for aboiut 10 years, then Taylor came along. He had the same kind of ideas and want to run in NHRA again, so we kind of pooled our thoughts and hopefully the thing runs good enough to make a good showing for VW's in the door car catagories again.

Any VW crank can be balanced to 0.0000000g of imbalance. The size of the counterweight has nothing to do with the balancing job. The counterweight helps prevents flexing of the crank. The ideal counterweight for a VW crank is much heavier than is physically possible. In other words, they are never big enough.

Hi Anthony, I'm curious. W hat is the re ason for the 1" x 1" bar we lde d along the bottom of that he ad? And what are going to do for valve cove rs? I lik e the ide a of going to 48 IDF footprint EFI. Much m ore com pact.

That is the unfinished valve cover rail. It will be profiled later. We will be running either the Autocraft cast valve covers, or a light-weight sheet metal version. Haven't decided yet. The IDF carb is the "Bastard Child" of the Weber line-up. Properly modified they can flow MORE than a 48 IDA. The only way an IDA can beat it is by boring it bigger. But even an IDF can be bored to 50mm. The manifold package of the IDF is also superior to the IDA. It has a straighter shot. No bends equal more flow. Plus the IDF has a better idle circut. To Many pluses for the IDF, I wish they still made them. With that said, I think the injection will still run better than the IDF. More power under the curve=better E.T.s Hopefully!

Same rockers. They are Componant Development rockers. They are the company that makes the heads and rockers. Roger @ Heads Up and Mike @ Autocraft are parteners on the progect (put the money up for the project). Both Heads Up and Autocraft sell the same parts. We have heads, rockers (1.55, 1.7, and 1.8) valve covers. Manifolds are coming soon. These rockers change the geometry of the pushrod in relation to the lifter. The pushrod and the lifter are now straight in-line. I don't think this motor (Taylors 1600) would be so sucessful if it wasn't for these rockers. As you cut the lenghth of the motor down (bring the head closer to the case) this angle on the pushrod gets more extreme.

Yup Ive been told many times its all in the heads, but was just curious.Whats it costing on average to build these little mouse motors(ie 1600,1603,1641,1679,1699)?Trying my best to stay on topic (sorry, Im just amazed about these little mouse motors)but from what your saying I can build any of those sizes up to 110-120hp.Also Ive read posts before that these motors dont make enough power to move until after 4000rpms, I hope thats not true because I want one of these for a street motor.Thinking maybe 40IDF's,FK8 cam with 1.4:1 rockers, 1.5" merged header, 044 heads from CB Performance, and some type of ignition. Title: Re: Small powerhouses and old school Post by: Bruce on February 08, 2008, 07:37:47 AM IMO, you are looking in the wrong direction. The most reliable hp is displacement. Getting 120hp out of a 1600 NA is not easy. Don't believe anyone that says it is. Title: Re: Small powerhouses and old school Post by: Torben Alstrup on February 08, 2008, 10:53:59 AM In my time I have built a couple of these small engine with that hp range. 120 hp out of a 1600 cc for daily use is stretching it, witout saying impossible. 1680 cc. with 117 - 120 usable hp is not a problem. The few extra cc. helps making it driveable at all rpm. There are a couple of solutions. I have my own of course. ::) I have a 1600 cc 110 hp version that works very well on the street, and a (rpm limited) 100 hp versoin built mainly out of stock parts. The key is to make the engine pull torque soon enough to make it decent in the lower rpm. Its absolutely possible, but you have to think a little different than mainstream. But from there to JPM´s or Autocraft´s heads & engines is a giant leap. T Title: Re: Small powerhouses and old school Post by: Jon on February 08, 2008, 11:10:40 AM I have modified my post as it was unclear at one point, I was talking about a "non-stroker" (1915) not a 1600. Thats why I mention the cylinder kit. Bruce, I guess anyone that has seen this thread understands that "good heads" is beyond regular "good heads". Nothing is Easy, but a having the help of a head porter makes it easyer, in my opinion.

I agree with that. For Project X, if you build a 2110 with really badly ported heads, it will still make at least 100-110hp, and be very easy to build. Title: Re: Small powerhouses and old school Post by: Project_X on February 09, 2008, 06:54:10 AM

POWER:138,8kW 188.7hp/7670rpm TORQUE:192.4Nm/6100rpm(138,7lbs) The ignition and fuel curve is optimized, the main venturies is 37mm, main jets is 145 the air is 160 idle jets are 65f10 and the E-tubes are F7.I will go bigger with the main venturies, the first step will be 39mm, this will hopefully raise the output alittle bit more and get me closer to the calculated max power rpm(8000).I will post a video later.

A little bit of JPM "bragging" ...I like to brag about you Johannes. I subscribe to some Formula one and High tech racing magazines, in them I could read last year that the supercar manufacturer Koenigsegg are getting in to racing. Not just world record runs but real racing. It was mentioned about some few companies that would assist them in further development of the car and on the engine company, JPM was mentioned. I like that. Anyway, Congratulations Johannes to the new Mouse concept! Nice move, nice touch to the all of us in the ACVW comunity.

Johannes, congratulations on your accomplishment, it is great to see somebody achieve such a high specific output from a VW, especially one that accomodates so many factory-style parts (like the cylinder heads). I was enrolled in a camshaft-theory class back in 2000, and was working on a project of 2332cc to make 100hp/liter and run on street, but never achieved my goal (I think 100hp/liter with large single cylinder displacement would be too difficult to do with VW-style heads, etc, maybe things have changed...) If you don't mind sharing, when you se the intake centerline on your motor, where did you set it to? On street motors with 260' + @.050" I have been setting them @ 104 ATDC, because I was taught this increases throttle response and build cylinder pressure faster. I don't have hard data saying this is what to do, only what I was taught. Do you mind sharing your thoughts on the cam in your engine, and where you set it up at? Again, congratulations. :) Jim Ratto Title: Re: Small powerhouses and old school Post by: Johannes Persson on February 12, 2008, 21:00:36 PM http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9868ihgGVk8 The dyno pull is from 2500rpm to 8500rpm in fourth gear (60-190km/h or 37,5mph-118,75mph). (http://www.vwnorge.no/JHU/project/jpm/039.jpg) Today I just had to finish the "Mouse Motor" project and changed the main venturies from 37 to 39mm. The engine responded really good with an improvement from 138,8-143,3kW or 188,7-194,9hp the torque increased from 191-195Nm (138-141lbs). The attiude of this engine is really something, nice and smoth at idle and kicks really hard if you want it to. There would probably be some more improvements with bigger venturies but as it is now there is no bog or hassitation between low and high circuit and as this engine is to be used on the street I prefere to have it like this.When using too big venturies you often notice a hassitation between low and high circuit even sometimes with the third progression hole modification. The purple curve is engine power and the green curve is wheel power. Thank you guys for all possitive input and if you have questions do not hassitate to ask. We are lucky to have an outstanding forum like this. Regards Johannes

How do you determine the intake and exhaust tuning length (second and third order)? I have tried to use a equation from an engineering book but the numbers you gave in some other post didn't wont to fall out. I know that the the variables are the cam intake/exhaust duration, rpm-time, gas velocity and speed of sound but i apparently i'm missing something. Congrats Johannes on the results.

JHU told me that JPM had done some calculations with the number he had from the first dyno pull where it "only" made 188hp ;D and with a 730kg car(included driver) the calculation said 11.97 on the 1/4 mile. Thats pretty fast with a 1603ccm!But thats just theory, the only way to find out is to race it 8) Title: Re: Small powerhouses and old school Post by: folkevogn on February 13, 2008, 09:00:30 AM Once again Johannes, just awsome! Looking at the photo of the power graph, it seems to be two small bumps in the curve. Is this where the rpm is between 1th and 2nd order, 2nd and 3th order? or is there another reason? Title: Re: Small powerhouses and old school Post by: Johannes Persson on February 13, 2008, 10:38:22 AM Hi Jim, The camshaft is a fk45@108 and I dailed it 105deg intake centerline, too much advance will hurt the the overall performance because the exhaust changes too in a negative way and at a point the intakevalve will close too early and you lose a lot of top end power.I use to look at the closing point for the intake valve regarding to how good the heads are and the displacement of the engine, too late closing point will hurt the all over performance.If your heads are good you can close the intake valve earlier without losing top end power because the heads will still keep the VE high as the rpm goes up and your midrange will be superior.So from my experience the hardest part in chosing a cam is to determine when the intake valve should close, when you have desided the closing point chose duration so the intake valve does not hit the piston at tdc including the depth of your valvepockets. Hopefully you see my point. With the 39mm venturies the mains are 160,air180 and still F7 E-tubes, at low and midrange the A/F is too fat that is why there are small bumps around 4-5k rpm, maybe with F-16 or F-9 E-tubes I can get rid of those.The F-7 E-tube is a very fat tube at low and mid range the F-16 or 9 is a lot leaner. Regards Johannes Title: Re: Small powerhouses and old school Post by: Jon on February 13, 2008, 13:08:25 PM There is something very appealing with these small capacity engines. This might be optimised far beyond what you can buy of the shelf today, but still I think it opens our minds to see the possibilities out there. First of all the Weber 48 is a HUGE performance carburator to this engine, also the "mandatory" counterweighted crank is stiffer. I bet there is a golden halfway between, cost physical size, performance and COOLNESS, and this engine can't be very far from it. 40x35,5 valves and 195 horses from 1603 cc?! I want more of these threads!! ;) Title: Re: Small powerhouses and old school Post by: Project_X on February 13, 2008, 15:22:10 PM 195hp...very impressive, how much more are gonna go? LOL For the pistons, if one was to build one similar to this motor or close could the Porsche 356 86mm pistons be used?Also since a 7lb flywheel cost 700.00 here where I'm at, could a 11-12.5lb lightened flywheel be used? And could any head porter do a 043 head like this with the welds, and the FK45 cam, you have is a engle cam or was it a modified one.I seen on the first page you have a cam with 2 profiles I guess, if I understand that, not sure. Thanks Title: Re: Small powerhouses and old school Post by: Johannes Persson on February 13, 2008, 15:29:18 PM Hi Eugene, I use to tune on third order up to 8000rpm and then the second above 8000rpm. Using the second order on low rpm gives you very long manifolds which many times decreases the total flow of the intake system. Third order:2460000/rpm=total intake length(mm). Second order:3350000/rpm=total intake length(mm). The length on the "Mouse Motor"s manifold are about 15mm too long from calculation that is one reason it peaks at lower rpm.

Johannes, I am very curieus about the small (gearbox and driveline) loss you have over the flywheel hp: Only 11.4 kW on a total of 143.3 kW! Thats just 8% :o The 132.4 is at the rear wheel, so with a 'normal' loss of about 15-18% the FWhp would have been (is) even (much) more... ;D Do you have extremely good gearbox oil or something that explains this?

Q uote from : Johanne s Pe rsson on Fe bruary 13, 2008, 10:38:22 AM Hi Jim , The cam shaft is a fk 45@108 and I daile d it 105de g intak e ce nte rline , too m uch advance will hurt the the ove rall pe rform ance be cause the e x haust change s too in a ne gative way and at a point the intak e valve will close too e arly and you lose a lot of top e nd powe r.I use to look at the closing point for the intak e valve re garding to how good the he ads are and the displace m e nt of the e ngine , too late closing point will hurt the all ove r pe rform ance .If your he ads are good you can close the intak e valve e arlie r without losing top e nd powe r be cause the he ads will still k e e p the VE high as the rpm goe s up and your m idrange will be supe rior.So from m y e x pe rie nce the harde st part in chosing a cam is to de te rm ine whe n the intak e valve should close , whe n you have de side d the closing point chose duration so the intak e valve doe s not hit the piston at tdc including the de pth of your valve pock e ts. Hope fully you se e m y point. W ith the 39m m ve nturie s the m ains are 160,air180 and still F7 E-tube s, at low and m idrange the A/F is too fat that is why the re are sm all bum ps around 4-5k rpm , m aybe with F16 or F-9 E-tube s I can ge t rid of those .The F-7 E-tube is a ve ry fat tube at low and m id range the F-16 or 9 is a lot le ane r. R e gards Johanne s

Thanks Johannes, interesting way to look at cam timing. I forget the lesson I was taught about cams, but there was a hierarchy of valve timing events that related to the 4 strokes of the motor.... I think # 1 event considered, according to class was exhaust opening, for "blowdown" but I don't remember, so obviously, I don't use that lesson for cam decision. The thoughts behind the intake center @ 104 was to get valve full open at piston position of fastest acceleration. I have noticed something with FK45 (I run same cam in my 94mm x 78mm, 541cc per cyl) that I haven't experienced with other cams, in engine response, and I don't know if it is my timing of cam or the cam itself.

Could you explain this for us dummies, Johannes? Title: Re: Small powerhouses and old school Post by: Johannes Persson on February 15, 2008, 12:08:50 PM Hello there, JHU, I ment that you should open the intake valve early because you want as much flow available as possible when the piston accelerates down(more flow area under the curve), but there are mekanical limitations you have to deal with(valve hitting piston). I decided to cloce the intake valve 57deg abdc @ 0,05", then the fk45 became a good choise together with 1,55:1 rockers. I am close to 6mm lift @ tdc so the valvepockets are pritty deep. Maybe I am not clear enought ,please let me know.

Title: Re: Small powerhouses and old school Post by: Peter Shattock on February 18, 2008, 22:35:49 PM Johannes, As suggested on here many times already great effort with the motor, and some really interesting insight, but best of all, it’s great to see someone actually doing it, rather than just talking about it. I was wondering what fuel you were using as I see you will be running the motor on the street with the CR set at 12.3:1, also how do you find the cooling with such a high CR on the street? Thanks again for you part in a great thread Peter

Title: Re: Small powerhouses and old school Post by: Johannes Persson on February 19, 2008, 09:10:33 AM Hi Peter, Good to hear that you like the project. I use our best pump gas "V-Power" from Shell gas stations, Shell says 99 octane. When you are using a smaller diameter piston the heat transfer thrue the piston rings to the cylinder are better than with a bigger piston. The area of a circle increases by the square, the circumference does not, that is why a smaller piston can use higher CR. I always use the cooling fan from a 1303 bug then you need a really good oil cooler with electrical fan and all your cooling tins has to fit to 100%, no leakage. Regards Johannes

I might be dropping you a line soon about building MY "mouse motor" ;) :) Title: Re: Small powerhouses and old school Post by: Frallan on June 06, 2008, 23:16:04 PM Hi Johannes! The big grin is on my face too. Congratulations!!! This is fun. Apart from the engine I do love the interior of your car. I intend to do the same of putting in some beutifying stuff. It comes out very good. I have my Tetra Pak friend with an ugly blue Chevelle runing 10-12 rounds down the strip last Wednesday (503 cui / 550 hp injected daily driver, 7.70s) and he was very impressed with these beetles. I guess it was Niclas in Herbie 53 in the other lane? He was so excited about it all that he picked up the phone and briefed me long distance. I am very proud on your behalf. Good luck at BG.

Title: Re: Small powerhouses and old school Post by: Jesse/DVK on June 08, 2008, 21:04:08 PM A very nice car! In the setup list I see you're using a 180mm flywheel. I'm thinking of buildling myself an engine but everyone advices me a 200mm flywheel. Why did you choose for a 180mm flywheel?

You do not disapoint. That is for sure. This thread and specifically you Johannes is so much fun that I added this infomrtaion and link on both STF and Cal look lounge-drag racing. It is for sure worth sharing to a wider audience. Title: Re: Small powerhouses and old school Post by: Frallan on June 09, 2008, 02:35:20 AM 11.58??? I cant melt it. Over breakfast I just did not get it too match. What have you done? 7.5 on the eighth is just barely in to the 11.99 on the quarter. Now the 92 mph indicates you could cut another tenth at MECA on the eigth. 92 mph on the eight could get you in to 11.8 (maybe 11.7) on the quarter if you have an extremely light car but I think you have mentioned around 730 kg and that is 1600lbs.

Is the 11.58 correct?

Print Page - Small powerhouses and old school

Help me understand. You need another 20 hp compared to the 92 mph so have you lowered the weight or what have you done since a week back? Now it will be very interesting to see what mph you had? 112 mph / 180 km/h ? Do you know exact weight of car and yourself? Stupid question. Knowing you, ofcourse you do.

Title: Re: Small powerhouses and old school Post by: dangerous on June 09, 2008, 05:25:44 AM Thanks for the link Frallan! Awesome info.

Both car and motor are good reflections to the JPM brand, its all second to non! Title: Re: Small powerhouses and old school Post by: Johannes Persson on June 09, 2008, 20:32:10 PM Hello, Thanks for all "con grats". It has been a really nice weekend with some good 1/4 mile passees with "The Screaming Mouse". First pass went 11,79s/174,00km/h(108,75mph), second pass went 11,58s/177,01km/h(110,63mph) which I have some doubts about. The time seems to be wrong but the speed are correct, it is a pitty because it was my best pass which also shows from the top speed, a realistic time would have been 11,70s. So far the 11,79s is the fastest but maybe I can squeese a little bit more hp from the engine and do some more adjustments to my new car and hopefully cut a tenth or so. Best regards Johannes

Title: Re: Small powerhouses and old school Post by: ugly duckling on June 09, 2008, 23:28:23 PM great effort. preaty sneeky job on that glass front end it almost passes as a oem one. would like to hear the engine up in the rpm im sure it soundes real good. good luck with it and have a good time. congrats.

Would love to know the other ratios too!! Title: Re: Small powerhouses and old school Post by: Johannes Persson on June 16, 2008, 10:38:45 AM Hi there, The ratios in my transaxel is R/P 4,375:1 First 3,44:1 second 2,54:1 third 1,71:1 fourth 1,35:1 The shift point is 8,5k and it never falls under 6k. 6k is at max torque, with this gearing I use the engine between max torque and max power in all four gears, this is of course more important on a "Mouse Motor" than bigger engines.

Title: Re: Small powerhouses and old school Post by: Johannes Persson on June 17, 2008, 07:30:48 AM Hello, Oliver Frey:My blue Super is retierd from the race track and I use it on a daily basis with a 2276,10,6:1 cr,fk 46,MS230 heads,JPM rockers two stud,scat 82 crank china,CB race rods,magnum straight cut,Phyton ex from CSP 45mm(very quiet),Keihin 41mm bike carbs making 222 very drivable hp. My plan is to make the "Screaming Mouse"(red car) street legal for next year and do smaller trips with it , but the priority will be on the drag strip. Bruce:I really do not know if I shift before or after the 60ft, probably after because a pritty long first gear. Regards Johannes Title: Re: Small powerhouses and old school Post by: Frallan on June 18, 2008, 17:30:50 PM I just ran it in Drag racing analyzer and it comes out a shift right around the 60 ft mark or maybe just after at 63 feet with all whatever variables you might have. I still miss the real weight of your car Johannes. Playing a lot with the theoretical tool gives me more hp than what you have indicated, that is if your car isn´t even lighter than what has been indicated. I also think we have a slightly wrong indication on Mantorp compared to Meca were you have the 60 ft too and reliable timing. In no way can I simulate and match the Meca performance with Mantorp. In any case, you have a real mighty mouse and you are very skilled in order to go that fast, first time out with new car AND new engine. Not just any engine either but what most of us will agree is fairly new territory. Very few will do that.

(No, not that small cc engines did not go fast before but you have a new combo that is exceptional.

Counterweighted 69 mm probably. Title: Re: Small powerhouses and old school Post by: JS on June 18, 2008, 22:31:08 PM Original Crank, no counterweights. Title: Re: Small powerhouses and old school Post by: monkiboy on June 18, 2008, 23:00:51 PM I know of an english guys who takes his STOCK VW crank to over 9000rpm ;) :) Title: Re: Small powerhouses and old school Post by: Johannes Persson on June 19, 2008, 10:08:27 AM Hi, The crank in the "MM" is a bone stock one, only 8 dowelled and carefully balanced. Forces created to the crank is from the weight of pistons and con rods, longer stroke and high rpm creates higher G-forces that pulls and bends the crank, and this is no good for the case. The counterweights helps the crank to be straight. The pistons and rods in the "MM" is much lighter than stock which means that the need for counterweights are less, I do not say that you do not need them but you defenetly need them less than with 94mm piston and long stroke. I will show you an example on force created to the crank with a light and heavy piston at the same rpm,stroke and con rod length. Ex:69mm stroke,8500rpm,5.4"rod and 565g piston(std) F=19276N Ex:69mm stroke,8500rpm,5.4"rod and 375g piston(JE) F=12793N As you can see the created force is 50% more with the heavy std piston.To reach 12793N with the 565g piston the rpm is aprox 6800. Keeping the weight down will save your engine and make it last longer with more performance. Regards Johannes Title: Re: Small powerhouses and old school Post by: Rasser on June 19, 2008, 11:14:53 AM

Q uote from : Pe te r Shattock on De ce m be r 11, 2007, 12:33:40 PM Slightly off targe t but Brian Hye rstay (not sure about the spe lling) runs a 1679 g/dragste r into the low nine s in the US and is said to produce around 220HP and goe s through the lights at 11,000 rpm !

I talked to Brian a couple of days ago and the figures above seem to be correct. It is a VERY expensive engine though, SCAT flangded crank, titanium rods etc. No expenses spared! Title: Re: Small powerhouses and old school Post by: Roman on September 15, 2008, 17:56:47 PM The Screaming Mouse engine is sold to Greece, but I will make a 1679 based on the same concept to a friends G/Dragster. As it is a pure race engine the compression will be slightly over 13:1, the cam will be a bit bigger and the intake valves will be 1 mm larger. Heads by JPM and I will make the rest of the build. The reson for going 1679 is that re rules for Competition Eliminator G/Dragster says 232 kg/liter and a minimum weight of 386 kg. 386/232= 1663 cc. If we have a 1679 we can weigh in on 390 kg including driver. Title: Re: Small powerhouses and old school Post by: Rune on September 15, 2008, 18:21:57 PM Sounds like an interesting project Anders..

I don't want to dissapoint you but it won't make any monster horsepower. I called Pat Downs some days ago about a budget small CC engine and he suggested CNC ported Comp eliminators a 1915 and that would maybe be able to do about 210 hp... There is no off the shelf heads today that can make 123 hp per liter. I know that both EMS and JPM charges about $4500 for these kind of heads. You won't need any wedgemate either, an 8-dowel done right will work perfect. Skip the aftermarket rods and spend them on the pistons instead. Go for a 1 1/2" exhaust instead of a 1 5/8".

The Carrillo's in the dragster motor are only 5" long as I remember. Should I remember this correctly, I believe that the Carrillo's in Eric Ballard's (ERCO) A/MC, B/MC, C/MC, C/MX & G/Dragster 1680 cc engines (88 EMPI Slipper Skirt pistons, 69 mm VW counter weighed crank) were 4.850". Yes it is a VERY tight fit, but it can be done with Slipper Skirt pistons.

What do you mean by "slipper skirt pistons are a very tight fit?" Are you talking about slipper skirts and the width of the assembled engine in relation to fitting into a bug body being "very tight?" The only factor I see here is if your running spacers on the the cylinders, but that'd be with a long stroke rod. Do you mean to say "very tight" related to the skirt of the piston (barely) coming out of the engine case with those short rods? I'd agree that'd be a concern. With those shorty rods, you'd need to hand grind small windows in the case for the rod stroke, and then match grind (as in carefully have them machined) the cylinders to the case windows. Then you'd hand grind the slipper skirt themselves so they don't hit the case on the return stroke. Those short rods imact calculating your compression ratio, deck height, etc. You are right on target with the rod lengths themselves, and the crankshaft/rod length ratios as other considerations. And don't forget that the Modified Compact (A/MC, etc.) and Modified Eliminator (SS/CX) classes all used crankshafts varying in strokes from 78.2mm throught 82mm to meet the weight break rules. Each combo required their own special machine/grind to fit modifications depending ont he parts you assembled. Now, the dual carbs to engine compartment side is tight when you needed to adjust/synching them... Anyway, our thoughts/input on the discussion....talk to you soon! Aloha, Frank Castagnetti Ohana Racing Honolulu and Hilo Title: Re: Small powerhouses and old school Post by: s-perf on July 08, 2009, 00:00:18 AM Thanks Vince for posting the video of my Buggy. Inspirated by this post and by the great job of JPM, we decide to build a small engine also. We race for the first time (with this engine) in France 3 weeks ago and then all this week end at the EBI 3. Here is the combo : AS41 case 66 mm welded berg crank 90 mm autocraft piston & cylinder kit (old from 90's i think). stock welded heads with 42x37 mm titanium valves Heads flows 190cfm intake / 150 cfm exhaust at full lift with good velocity FK89 cam - 1,4 rockers 48 IDA with 40mm venturies 1-7/8 exhaust (too big i know :)) 12,5 CR - running with VP racing fuel No cooling, but alternator is on. Actually the engine is making 167cv (DIN) HP (perhaps a little more with the changes we made this week end). This engine is my street bug (you can see it on the video in the message before). I have always build "big engine" from 2liters to 3liters and i am very surprised and glad of this small one. This week end at the EBI 3 i ran 12,2s at the beginig and after some different jetting, venturies, exhaust, etc... combo, i finally ran : 20m : 1,60s 1/8 : 7,32s 1/4 : 11,68s speed : 109 mph The engine seems to be very strong as we made aroud 20 passes this week end, 9000rpm at each gear, 9200 at burn out. No leaks, no cooling problems, rockers play have not move.

I think we have still many things to do as the combo is not perfect. The exhaust is not good, the cam is too big, the I/E ratio is too high, the manifolds are too long, slicks are too big, etc... So, if someone have ideas or advices, i am really open !!

Rick Mortensen Title: Re: Small powerhouses and old school Post by: george4888 on August 06, 2009, 05:53:02 AM Hi, Everyone. When I get my car set up for good take-offs from the starting line I will let you know the times. I don't see anyone doing a legal SS/FS in the USA, except me. There are rules which do not allow the use of any aftermarket heads and the 044 is an example of a head that is NOT made by VW/Audi and per the NHRA tech people, not allowed in this class. Also, if you only have a roll bar you have to use Stock seats,,,not race type seats and bumpers are also required. The rules for the 2009 SS/FS class are such that I am having lots of trouble getting my car and me down closer to the weight of 1800 pounds with my 1776 cc engine. Why the 1776 cc ? Because , I have built more of them than any other size during my 30 years working on VW's, do know what to expect. Looking over the past two years of posts in this forum, I see I am on track with many for my "small" engine. But, I am only working with springs that allow up to 8,000 rpms,,,at this time, but if the times are not on the index or below it, I will go to stronger springs and pick up another 1,000 rpms. The bottom end is Berg wedge-mated crank and Pauter light weight rods. I am using many light weight parts throughout the engine, such as Pauter's roller rocker arms and CE light weight cam straight cut gears. The heads are FF and have been run in the '80's legal down into the 11's, so I just need to work out the suspension problems I have and see what happens to the HP getting to the track. Thanks to all for the good information. Building a car to run legally in NHRA or IHRA is not easy, due to the strict rules. The index is 12.75 for SS/FS and in IHRA, running over 2,000 pounds weight, it is 13.25 for SS/CC. We did this 10 years ago and ran .75 under the index at that time, so I am just trying to repeat history and have some fun.

At the time we started at 13 lbs./ci and went to 19 lbs./ci. I bailed at 15 lbs., since my 1998cc was to heavy/slow to keep up. Kris and others used small efficient motors because they had to respond to NHRA rules with winning combinations of parts and driver skills. Yes they leaned on the motors and trannys rather heavily, and they paid the price, as well as reaped the rewards. Nowadays, unless you're a class racer there's few reasons to run a motor at the ragged edge, unless you're a glutton for punishment. Kris and I only raced once, i was lucky. I dared not try my luck again. Kris ,if you read this, long time no see! Title: Re: Small powerhouses and old school Post by: Peter Shattock on August 27, 2009, 14:13:46 PM Well I finally ran the 11 I've been chasng for a while with my 1776cc N/A street car. The interesting thing is having read most of this thread again that I would not consider it to be "thinking out of the box", particularly in terms of the motor. A fair bit more effort has gone into making the gearbox more efficient though. Ian at WPS who built the motor would be the first to admit its just a development of the street motor he ran in his split, and not a race motor. The parts in the motor are all readily available but they have just been selected and put together with care. The best and most exotic parts of the engine are certainly the heads, which are Jeff Denham 043's with Ti valves. But again they are street heads a sort of an entry level set for Jeff, as he is certainly capable of something much better. The car is light for a street car, but not super light (1585 at the last count with my skiny ribs in it, it might be 1565 by now as I have lost some weight in the car since it was last weighed), as its all steel wings and has stock bulkheads and the like, but its stripped out inside with basically no interior except a head liner. Anything I've changed or added to the car I've allways tried to make it lighter, but not to the point of compromising drivability or reliability. The car was driven to the track (2 1/4 hours) on a hot day with no trouble. It ran 3 11's with a best of 11.915 at 111.41mph but this was with a stinger no fan belt and slicks. The journey home took 3 hours due to a traffic jam and the car sat in stop start traffic on tick over for 45 mins at 80 degrees C no problem. I'm really pleased with the achivment, but I would not consider it thinking outside the box. Its more like good logic and enginering. So the big qestion for me is, what can you achive if you do really go for it? It's been said earlier by John (JMR) that unless there are class rules to restrict cc / weight there is no major development on mass, to find out what can be achived today. That said there are people trying, just for trying sake, or just general self entertainment. The good news for all of us is that most of them in Europe and a few from over the pod contribute on here. Also I think things have got a lot easier due to the availability and choice of parts, and this has made us all a bit lazy. But all the time there are people like the Skinne Bros, Johannes at JPM, with there recent achivements, and many others, I think there will be constant improvement, as all these people are committed to making things better. Its just just the progress will be slower than it would be, if we were all racing to class rules, as they were back in the day in the US! Peter No mofoco of auto lina logos. NHRA is particular ;D

Compare these figures to other normally aspirated flat 4 engines that run on super unleaded fuel and you can begin to understand the scale of this achievement. The only motors that run close to these figures that I can find are Johannes’s old 1603 mouse motor and his 1915cc motor which was in his blue car. We are undoubtedly all very lucky to have Johannes in the AC VW world moving the game on, and sharing his knowledge with us and developing products for us to use. But for me best of all is that he is a really nice guy, and is very humble and almost embarrassed by his achievements, and

What are your goals (horsepower & torque) and use for this engine? Will it be street driven? How much? Carburetion? These questions should be asked/answered in order to lead you to the heads (and cam) for your engine. I've had better luck with combinations knowing this beforehand; Bigger isn't always better. Good luck with your project!

Gareth, I'm sure you could manage 180 at 8k my 1776cc made a best of 186hp at 7300. There is a full spec of the motor in the for sale section. I suspect Andy Marriot's engine spec is on here somewhere as well. He runs a 1914cc which must make a very similar amount if not a bit more. Both motors are similar in spec as are our cars and Andy has run a string of 12.0's, but I would bet on him seeing 11's next year. As you will see I ran an FK87 which was a good cam for the combination, but does not have the modern thinking Johannes has put into his Raptor cams, and I would say there is a performance advantage with one of his cam's. Put it like this if I were keeping the motor I would buy a JPM cam, lifters springs and pushrods. As others have said you need to consider your induction, head and cam combination first. If you could provide Johannes head flow details I'm sure he could recomend a cam package to make the most of them, but you need heads that flow well and have good air speed before you go anywhere.

Peters car is 1340lb ( or was, probably lighter now ) and mine was 1376lb, both without driver, andy Title: Re: Small powerhouses and old school Post by: Peter Shattock on December 09, 2009, 14:28:47 PM Hi Udo, My car at race weight is about 1500lbs with me in it. Andy's is a little heavier I think, (I think the exact weights are on the weight saving thread on here) but there is not much in it in terms of weight and power difference. Basically both cars are very similar all round. I think both cars are a great compromise between race car and street car, or street car and race car depending on how you like to look at it. We have both driven as far as EBI in them and drive the cars to the track when we race over here. Both cars turn some respectable times for small engined N/A street cars on the track, and they are certainly plenty quick enough on the street! Peter Title: Re: Small powerhouses and old school Post by: Udo on December 09, 2009, 20:06:34 PM That is very lightweight . My car has 1460 lbs without driver .

Title: Re: Small powerhouses and old school Post by: Jesse Wens on January 12, 2010, 12:58:56 PM 40 horse bigborekit has short cilinders for 64 mm crank so shims wil be required when using stroker crank. The 64 mm crank is stronger than people say with the neceserey mods. The weak link is the crank at the 3rd cilinder. For short burst , no pronlmes but use the power for some time and add some heat.... bearing eaten away. nothing that can't be done but you have to know how. I would tell you if I knew but this is all they told me. I got this from kristof at steves vw shop. seems that he has the secret and will do the work, but no kiss and tell. jesse Title: Re: Small powerhouses and old school Post by: Baked Beetle on January 20, 2010, 00:40:59 AM Johannes, I really would like to know how that stock crank spins that high? I know everything is balanced but......not even counterweighted? Can you fill me in on your choice as opposed to a DPR or CB performance crank? :D Title: Re: Small powerhouses and old school Post by: RFbuilt on January 20, 2010, 16:18:45 PM i think Johanes mentioned way back the reason for counterweight.. is to aleviate the weight thrown by the rod journal,rods,pistons, etc the lighter those parts are, the more reasonably counter'd the crank is ofcourse being counterweighted as a crank would always be better, but im sure Johanes has matched every aspect of his motor, including weight of individual components to rpm relation.. his JE pistons are quite short as far as compression height goes, and its well.. almost half the weight of cast pistons or even less plus the overall width of the motor is narrower.. anyways... im also still learning alot from these guys.. so i hope sum1 could clarify my words if ever im misunderstanding anything as far as JPM and overall engine techniques hehehe Ralf Title: Re: Small powerhouses and old school Post by: Baked Beetle on January 20, 2010, 19:17:10 PM Very Good Points. all of them. I'm curious about the rpm limit of using a stock forged crank that has been balanced? Better than say a cheap $200 cast crank or maybe just a s good as a 4140 CB 69mm crank. I'm in the process of building something like this but don't want to throw expensive parts at a semi-grenade motor ;D Title: Re: Small powerhouses and old school Post by: RFbuilt on January 20, 2010, 21:13:05 PM

Title: Re: Small powerhouses and old school Post by: Baked Beetle on January 22, 2010, 00:31:45 AM well after watching the dyno video again and again. I just cannot believe that crank holds up to 9k rpms, even with the light reciprocating parts........ I wish someone else could chime in 8) Title: Re: Small powerhouses and old school Post by: Jon on January 22, 2010, 09:30:31 AM I don't have the time to find the exact post or mail, but Johannes has shown me how the forces working on this crank a 9k is LESS than you will find in a normal 2332 setup @ I think it was 6 or 7k. Light and small parts helps a lot, some choices were also done to keep the total down. Title: Re: Small powerhouses and old school Post by: RFbuilt on January 22, 2010, 11:06:06 AM its sumwer in the early pages of this thread, johanes noted the figures of weight.. from my understanding.. its like doing the "hammer" throw.. shorter hammer of the same weight (mouse motor JPM) longer hammer of the same weight (usual motors) the shorter one will have less acting force on the thrower <-- crank vs the long one.. add the light parts (JE pistons of JPM) i think its sumthing that is indeed possible and doable

just not viewed or seen thru the "common" eye i guess.. or not tried cuz sum1 already said "meh stroke that bish.. or big bore it " LOL Title: Re: Small powerhouses and old school Post by: Baked Beetle on January 22, 2010, 15:07:29 PM Thanks JHU! Yea your right RF, thats what I'm trying not to do. Not do the most 'common' thing. As soon as one person says "that cranks limit is 5k rpm' everyone starts believing it even though it could essentially turn 7k all day long and the person never tested it at all. Damn internet sometimes is the cause for mis-information. ::) I've since found a set of JE 85.5 that weigh 335 versus the 418 grams of my oem KS pistons. that equates to 12 ounces less reciprocating weight just from the pistons. I'm thinking that is what Johannes pistons weigh in around.

Title: Re: Small powerhouses and old school Post by: RFbuilt on January 22, 2010, 17:49:50 PM re these the geers one? (or sachette) oh well one of th prostock guys LOL JE 85.5 ? very nice.. i made a post in the cal look section and recieved ZERO feedback asking about.. the givens like wiseco 94mm forgeds have gone down to sub 400$ mainly cuz some one had it done already and the fixtures and tooling and or cnc prog have been done at wiseco and so they can keep making them at a lower price (i know this is how it is fr another brand we specifically use for inline4's we order customs from) i wonder how many people would actually like.. or is it juz not sumthing worth a bean aftermarket (wiseco or other makers like JE) kind of 90.5mm B and A thats lighter than the "off the shelf" products that should sprout a sick lil 1776 haha or a big rat 1904 or a big farm rat 2007cc still within the mouse family? ;D Title: Re: Small powerhouses and old school

When i started building engines in 1980 i did some 1600 cc engines for street use up to 130 hp and 7000 rpm . We had no problems with the original cranks . BUT , there were no conterweight cranks avaliable in Germany . We had some okrasa cranks which were too expensive for us .... Today i would use a conterweighted 69 mm crank over 6000 rpm's, but an original with welded conterweights on , so you can be shure it does not bend too much.

Title: Re: Small powerhouses and old school Post by: Peter Shattock on February 07, 2010, 20:58:14 PM Yes it is 69mm x 91mm, the same trick JP used with the 1603, to make sure the barrels are round and straight and honed correctly. Yes again, the pistons are JP's spec from JE. I will try and post a dyno run as well but given it took me this long to post the engine run up, don't hold your breath! Peter Title: Re: Small powerhouses and old school Post by: RFbuilt on February 07, 2010, 21:43:52 PM thanks peter, very interesting, i guess now i should start saving some used 85.5 barrels, and if i find some 90.5s never know when an 86 or 91 become handily available ;D Title: Re: Small powerhouses and old school Post by: 67-indeed/DVK on February 08, 2010, 15:42:50 PM it can't be that the trick is in the pistons right? are those JE pistons that much lighter or something? Title: Re: Small powerhouses and old school Post by: Peter Shattock on February 08, 2010, 18:57:00 PM I think you'll find its actually a large combination of things that makes the difference, with small improvements made in all areas that amount to something more significant when combined. That said the pistons are lighter than standard, but more importantly in combination with the barrel size shape and surface, ring package pin height, and the like it does produce a good performance advantage over a stock combination, both in terms of maintaining good cylinder pressure and reducing friction. JP would be the best person to answer in detail, but this is the basics as I understand them. Peter Title: Re: Small powerhouses and old school Post by: RFbuilt on February 08, 2010, 22:50:52 PM i think , its juz like running standard 94s vs 94mm wiseco's the weight, and ring package alone should help a few ponies strut along.. thats 1 small factor.. in the whole "system" of an engine..

Title: Re: Small powerhouses and old school Post by: Peter Shattock on May 14, 2010, 09:33:36 AM Well, I've had my first few drives in the car with the new motor, and I have to say it is amazingly smooth and very well behaved around town, with very good throttle response from low RPM, in fact it feels more like an EFI engine than a IDA motor. There is none of the small engine light parts issues which some people talk about either! All in all my initial impression is that its drives very well and street diving to date has been fantastic and needless to say it’s just great to drive the car again. The air temperature is still cold here and I’ve only been on short (15 minute) runs so far but all signs look good with oil temp at less than 80 degrees still! The heads certainly seam very cool if the temperature of the tin ware is anything to go by (I don't have cylinder temperature gauges). I've driven to work today as it’s a nice sunny day so I can enjoy a drive at lunchtime so there's not much chance of getting much work done today! As for the performance it certainly feels very quick but to be honest the same could be said of the old engine after the 5-6 months off over the winter driving a diesel Polo. That said the low rpm pick up is significantly different, as you had to keep the old motor on the boil for it to fly but this one is raring to go right from low RPM. I have a couple of weeks now before the first race of the year so I hope to get some good street miles in between now and then to check all is well over longer distances and generally get the hang of driving the car again. Needless to say there are a few other little jobs to attend to as there always is, which I hope to do over the next couple of weeks, if I can stop driving the car! Its all to easy to forget that's what its all about, having fun and driving the car, and it certainly is fun, so perhaps those little jobs can wait! Peter Title: Re: Small powerhouses and old school

The re is none of the sm all e ngine light parts issue s which som e pe ople talk about e ithe r!

Please elaborate... Title: Re: Small powerhouses and old school Post by: Peter Shattock on May 14, 2010, 22:46:14 PM Hi Zach, I was meaning that I know a number of people earlier in this tread I think, suggested there may be problems with running light parts, particularly flywheels, in terms of drivability. Needless to say I'm sure this is true at some point. You just have to look at F1 cars trying to get out of the pit box, but I think the combination would need to be genuinely extreme if this new engine is anything to go by. I think by most peoples standards this engine would be considered, as fairly extreme by n/a VW street car standards, but in this combination in my car which is admitidly light (1500lbs when I'm in it) there is no problem at all (stock ratio first and second gear on a 4.25 rp). To be honest its ridiculously drivable. I went for a longer drive today and temps wise it certainly looks good, but as I said in my last post its not too warm here! But following my little lunchtime razz around I can definitely confirm one thing. Happiness is a hot VW!

Title: Re: Small powerhouses and old school Post by: Peter Shattock on June 04, 2010, 14:07:21 PM Well what a weekend! I’ve finally got to run the car down the track with the new motor. But first of all the drive to the track. Its just under 110 miles to the track from home and the drive there was all fine, and I’m not joking when I say the only temperature problems were getting the oil temperature up as driving at 4000rpm the max oil temp I got on the gauge was 80 degrees. Better still I turned up at the gate moments before Andy Marriott did in his hot 1914cc n/a street car so we drove into the Outlaw pits for the weekend in formation. Given the gearbox in the car was designed to suit my old engine I was a little paranoid about breaking it, so I ran for the first day on MH street tires which netted me a best of 11.87 at just over 113mph which I was very pleased with as it beat my previous PB on slicks and all I did when I arrived was change the oil check the valve clearances, take the fan belt off and the deck lid so I could film what was going on of in the engine bay off the line. At the end of the day I ran one 1/8th mile pass with slicks as there was a big cross wind and there had been a few incidents earlier in the day, which netted me a promising looking 1/8th mile time to build on the following day. Day 2 of racing I ran with the slicks and ran a number of 11.6…. second passes with a best of 11.60 again just over 113mph. that’s over 3 10ths of my best previous ET. I had a number of problems with the car, and my driving over the weekend, so I’ve got a list of things to do now before I race again

The drive home again on the Sunday night was great, as it was a nice sunny evening and again the car was just running really sweet, and I got home in good time with no problems. For those of you who drive your cars to and from the track, you’ll understand there is a great feeling pulling on to the drive at home and clicking the motor off having had a great weekend with the car and a bunch of mates, there really is nothing much better! I have to say a big thanks to Johannes, as true to his word (as ever), the motor has been fine on the street and even better on the track. I just need to get my self and the car in order to really do it justice now! Peter.

Feels great indeed! Disadvantage is that i'm usually deafend by the engine sound on such long drives ;D Title: Re: Small powerhouses and old school Post by: Peter Shattock on July 28, 2010, 08:09:53 AM Well I've just had another great if slightly shorter than planned weekend of racing this last weekend to see if my tinkering over the last few weeks had resolved the problems I had with the clutch and suspension last time out. Unfortunately it was clear after the 1st run that the clutch was still not up to the job, so it was only a matter of time before it gave out. Worse still it was also clear that I had not resolved my suspension problems either. Fortunately I had enough options at the track with the parts I'd taken to resolve the suspension issues, which gave me the chance to see what difference the new gearbox ratios had made, whilst I still had a clutch! With sorted suspension and the new gearbox ratios the car ran 3 consecutive 11.3…. quarter miles with a best of 11.32 @116mph (not 119mph as stated earlier). Needless to say I was very happy with this, and once again have to say a massive thanks to all of those that have helped me, particularly Peter at Cogbox in this case (who didn't go to the Brit F1 GP to finish my gearbox so I could race this weekend), Ian and Lee for the help and advice at the track and of course Johannes, for a little 1795cc engine which defies belief! I had several people come up to me at the weekend and say they could not believe a flat four could make that sort of noise! I left the track on Sat night once I knew the clutch was finished for racing but still drivable, and had a great drive home with next to no traffic and got home in record time, unlike the journey to the track in torrential rain and horrible traffic. I took a little de tour on the way home as there's a nice straight road with a few sets of traffic lights close to home, just so I could use up the last of the clutch centre plate, but as ever pulling up on the drive at home and clicking the motor off was a great feeling after a weekend of racing I wont forget for a while! I took the motor out on Sunday and the centre plate was almost 2.5mm thinner than it was when I put it in there before the race, but I have a possible solution to try at the next race at the end of August, so fingers crossed it will work this time! Lee has some film footage of a couple of the runs which I will try and post but as ever it will no doubt take me ages so don't hold your breath. Tanks Andy and Paulfor the encouragement and Corally ear plugs are definitely the way forward!

Stupid predictive text Title: Re: Small powerhouses and old school Post by: Peter Shattock on September 07, 2010, 23:35:12 PM A brief update. My last visit to the track with the new motor did not exactly go to plan, as I was still struggling with clutch issues, but did run a couple of 11.50's (which amazingly feels slow now!), the best being a 50 flat, so there was no improvement on my previous speed or et. The clutch center plate let go on the 3rd pass on Saturday, but thanks to Ian WPS for an express road trip to Cogbox and Peter's help to make up a new center plate we made it back to the track with the bits to fix the car for Sunday. Adele and I ran on the Sunday as the first pair after the rain in the morning, and I'm sure most of you know what happened next, but as the others have said the main thing was that Adele was OK. My next and last outing this year is DDD8, which I'm hoping will be a lot less eventfull than the last race! I'm not going to drive the car there, but hopefully I can have my fun on the track and perhaps a quick razz on the roads around Bitburg. Peter Title: Re: Small powerhouses and old school Post by: Peter Shattock on September 22, 2010, 22:38:48 PM Well this is the final instalment from me for a while. DDD8 was a great weekend and to be honest I don't think I've had such a good weekend before running at best 2/10ths of my et, and it took me right until the last run of the weekend to get that close. As has become the norm the clutch gave up on Sat afternoon, but thanks to Ian (WPS) we got the motor out, clutch sorted, and back in, just in time to catch the last of the DAS barbeque hospitality that evening. After chasing a good set up for a few runs, the car ran from 11.8 something to an 11.52 last run. So the car ends the year with a best et of 11.315 at 116mph (no fan belt on slicks, with a muffler on super unleaded pump fuel) from around 25 passes and just over 1000 street miles. Needless to say 1000 miles is not much for a street car, but unfortunately my time for regular street miles is limited, due to other commitments. The only problems I have had, have been clutch related (one centre disc per meeting), but fingers crossed the last set up we tried for Sunday at DDD appears to be holding up well, so we may have found something which works now. I hope to put some more street miles on the car now that the years racing is over for me, and just enjoy buzzing round some of the nice local country roads before the weather really turns for the worst. Suffice to say its been a great year and the car has been fast and reliable on the street and track, its sat in traffic jams and not got hot, done 500600 miles of motorway driving and knocked 6 tenths of a second of my previous PB, it even gave between 25 and 30mpg on the drives to the track, so it really has done everything I could have asked for, and all from 1795cc. So that just leaves me to say thanks to all those who have helped me this year and in particular Ian at WPS, Peter at Cogbox, Dave Dinning, Lee Maynard, and of course Johannes at JPM for what has proved to be a ridiculously good little motor for the street and strip.

Title: Re: Small powerhouses and old school Post by: Peter Shattock on September 29, 2010, 13:35:01 PM Thanks for the kind comments all, DDD8 was a great end to a great year of racing for me, I just have my fingers crossed the event will run again next year. I think there might be a few more Outlaw's there next year, but it does clash with an event the same weekend in the UK as a general rule, which is why we haven't attended in greater numbers over recent years. I think its fair to say this years event sparked a flame for a few of us though, as its a great hardcore VW event with like minded people from all over attending, and the quality of cars as well as the quantity is as good as I've seen in one place. I know there are a few other small motors being built out there, so hopefully there will be more updates on this thread over the winter and next year, with others flying the flag for the mouse motor, and needless to say I'm sure those that are out there allready will be thinking about winter tinkering plans. Roll on the 2011 race season!

Best rgs BB Title: Re: Small powerhouses and old school Post by: Johannes Persson on October 17, 2010, 20:25:47 PM Hello, This engine was built for at least 4 years ago as an R&D project. It is designed to have peak power at 9000rpm and 14bar bmep, if I can hit this goals it will pump out 265hp or 138.4hp/lit. Only small changes has been made since first build, it has mostly been sitting on my shelf but the plan is to race the engine for next season. The pulls on the video is up to 9700rpm where the rew limiter kicks in, the power is 248hp at 8900rpm. No special oiling mods are done, just ordinary full flow with 26mm pump and oil return into main gallery. New header was tested today, 252hp at 9000rpm and keeps the power almost to 10000rpm. There was also a 8hp increase at 7000rpm, I have only made the calibration of A/F maybe some improvements could be expected from calibration of the ignition curve which I will do the next days. Next change will be "top shot" injectors, after that a custom made piston, which will raise the comp ratio to hopefully about 13:1. I still have 13hp up to reach target, a 3-4% increase could be expected going from 11.2-13:1 in CR. BTW I only use my std size OTEVA75 dual springs, valve lift is 16.3mm(0.641"). /Johannes

Q uote from : Atom He art Mothe r on O ctobe r 14, 2010, 18:11:15 PM Pe te r congratulations on your m otor, se e m s it is be st of "both worlds" and the m otor I dre am about at night.

Thanks, although its Johannes we are thanking here. What you say is a good reminder actually, I’m sure it’s a human nature thing, but I’ve a terrible habit of not realizing or being grateful for what I’ve got. But as you say it is the thing of dreams really. It was not long ago, that if I’d been told the car could do what it has done this year, both on the street and the track, I would not have believed it! Its interesting that after all these years of driving and racing the car, the 6 tenths faster that it ran this year relative to my previous years PB, is the biggest single leap the car has made. The engine is a little bigger, and in previous years I had purposely been making smaller steps to measure the improvement in a more measured way, rather than changing a load of things at once. None the less, I was definitely trying to go faster, and to have come this far, then to take of 6 tenths in one year, and if anything found it easier to drive on the street, is still amazing to me. The strange thing is I now know that it can be even better, but I suppose there will always be room for improvement. I do have this horrible sinking feeling that my trips to Sweden over the last couple of years were the first of many, rather than the first and last. I’ve certainly found Johannes’s enthusiasm for all things performance very infectious, regardless of his clear skill and ability, and in many respects it’s a great relief to me that he lives miles away, as the distraction would be even worse than it already is!. I’ve enough trouble keeping the home / work / car balance in check with all the other local VW friends and racers I know as it is! Peter Title: Re: Small powerhouses and old school Post by: Shag55 on October 20, 2010, 16:30:29 PM I've been wanting to build a small-ish motor for some time now to make big HP up high. A 74x94 with 5.325 Eagle rods and JE skeletor pistons and asset of really short barells I have. The heads are 44x35.5 with tai valves, 7deg tai keepers and PSI springs and tight chambers, deck not cut yet. The ports are simaler to Chung Woo design the exhausts are smaller but should net a good I/E ratio. Berg 1.45 rockers and DT pushrods. The cam is up in the air as of yet but one grind in mind has 278 deg@.050 and .422 lift its a vary aggressive profile. Header will be a 1 5/8 steped to 1 3/4 but length not yet determined asim not good with calculations. Plans were to get it to 8-10k and in the 240Hp range. Any suggestions for the cam would be appreciated Johnnes. Shag Title: Re: Small powerhouses and old school Post by: Johannes Persson on October 20, 2010, 20:39:54 PM Hello Shag, The OTEVA75 springs I use in my 1915 has 150-160lbs installed pressure and 350-360lbs at over the nose. The cam is one of my Raptors which has 280+ deg at 0.05" and about .430 lift. All my Raptors are brand new profiles, no copies from V8 or others. They have all been designed to suit the valvetrain of acvw, that is why it's possible to reduce the spring pressure. I design the valve lift profile in a very advanced computer software and from that file created the lobe is cnc machined. That means that I can design a custom grind for a special performance goal and combo like yours in very short lead time and a fair price. Most cam grinders copies a "master lobe" when grinding cams, to make a new master lobe is very expensive. I don't have to do that when dealing with cnc grinding. Send me an email and we can talk about it. /Johannes Title: Re: Small powerhouses and old school Post by: Eddie on October 23, 2010, 07:03:39 AM

Currently the car has a 1300cc engine which is quite strong but not as strong as the one I am thinking of. I would like to create a replica of the Swedish 1200s like the ones on the attachment. These are the Swedish VW 1200s, fitted with 1300 cc Okrasa (Oettinger) engines, Porsche 356 brake drums, plexi-glass windows, 84 liter petrol tanks. These cars were used in the 1964 Spa-Sofia-Liege Marathon race. I have bought the 356 brakes, bought the plexi-glass windows from a company in the UK (http://www.plastics4performance.com/), already bought a new ATL tank and much more, new bucket seats,. The point is to build an engine that will have an output close to 110-115bhp with max rpm 6500 and a gearbox that will keep the engine in the power all the time. There is a circuit racer in Britain from the just campers team that is a 1300 with power output of 140bhp, but this engine will not be suitable for rallying. All ideas are welcome

Udo we are your customer in Greece (http://www.rallybugs.com/CSBeetle.htm). A friend of ours is using the heads you made and your cam on his race car. The car is a 1970 model and not a 1964 like the one I am thinking of. Originally with Udos set up the engine made 90bhp on the dyno. Andreas though re-worked the chambers and changed the timing of the cam. After a lot of work, and a lot of trials the engine made a healthy 130bhp at 6850 rpm. Andreas also changed the combination of stroke and bore. The car has made 3 FIA races with very good results. This year a new gearbox will follow that will suit the engine a lot better.

Print Page - Small powerhouses and old school

looking at the masterppiece that mr. johannes has designed the mouse 1603cc motor, ofcourse power is not even a question based on the results, it made tons of it :) and driveability is ideal too i suppose... i have an odd question, hopefully udo or jpm, or any of our seasoned builders can clarify with the aproach of the mouse 1603cc motor, lets say.. adjust the cam and compression to suit a circuit application will the non counterweighted crank, using super light JE pistons be ok to use in sustained high rpm ? i know drag use is alot different when ur turning into a mild curve into a long straight where u are atleast 5-10secs in full throttle above 6k rpm , would the non counterweighted fullybalanced crank and itnernals with JE pistons be ok? or is it best to go with a cw 69 in this instance of application? thanks guys Title: Re: Small powerhouses and old school Post by: Udo on September 15, 2011, 17:15:53 PM I would go with an original conterweighted crank . But the more important thing is the ballancing, we did highspeed balancing úp to 8000 rpm on all race engines during the last years . It makes the crank live longer and i think it does not flex as much as it does before . Up to 7000 an ogininal crank is ok Udo Title: Re: Small powerhouses and old school Post by: RFbuilt on September 15, 2011, 21:16:51 PM Thanks udo ! Such an amazing source of knowledge you are :) But to clarifiy "original counterweight" u mean welded like DPR? Yes sir we balance all our internals on a schenk engine balance machine :) Lastly u mention on an "original" crank when fully balanced it is ok to 7,000 rpm it doesnt suffer flex as much Did u mean original non welded counterweight? As u mentioned for counterweighted it is safe up to 8,000rpm Thank you Title: Re: Small powerhouses and old school Post by: Udo on September 16, 2011, 05:59:48 AM All yes , this is what i found out . In the earlier days we used original non conterweight for our race engines up to 7000 with no problems. Udo Title: Re: Small powerhouses and old school Post by: RFbuilt on September 16, 2011, 09:58:47 AM thank you Udo! i may have to try this :) with an autocross/circuit project hehehe thanks for sharing your valuable experience ! specially in circuit racing from before Title: Re: Small powerhouses and old school Post by: speed7 on September 20, 2011, 02:19:24 AM I've been running a 1776cc street /strip engine for a couple of years now and it's still going very strong. I use the car as a daily on a regular base and racing it in weekends. It's a full steel 73 car and I'm running an ET of 14.5 @91 mph .(slicks and short 3/4) Engine has an estimated 125 hp and is built with a CW crank 69 , std rods , Cima Mahle 90.5 A kit and a Webcam dual lobe cam. The heads are 041 with 40x35.5 ported by Steve' Heads and 48 IDa carbs. The whole engine was planned as a streetable engine with good response at lower Rpms and still get good top performance. I generally set the RPM limitor at 7600 rpm for racing . I agree with Udo , that to make an engine "drehfreudig" and get high rpms easily is to give it a very good balancing .

long time follow what makes Kalle this project was followed out much HP and Nm , but one interested that camshaft of Raptor and which turbo to achieve this ??? Title: Re: Small powerhouses and old school Post by: Andrimot on June 02, 2012, 18:44:09 PM Nice job! But why on a turbo motor? Andreas Title: Re: Small powerhouses and old school Post by: mr horsepower on June 06, 2012, 19:29:33 PM Hi loungers i hope this is the right topic to ask my question. A few jears ago i got hold of a pair of solex 40 pt-4 carbs and intakes they were verry worn out . But i liked the way the were worked by hand some body had a hard time on them . I think the came from a old autocross or rally engine i liked that just to own it 4 jears later a buddy of mine got hold of a set of hand worked old race heads They have 40mm intake and 32 ex valve he told me ill could use them to make and engine for display with it nice i thouged when we looked at the heads and the intake i sayed the look the same as my old school carb/intake set So i pulled the carbs out of the dust and placed them on the heads And then the amezing came . The match the same as dna on peolpe!!! wauw! I thouged thats cool , So my buddy says lets put then on a flowbench just for fun and the turned out to flow 160 hp!! But i i consider them to far worn out to use But i have an 1956 ragtop oval bug that needs a bigger engine and i like old school And i gonna try to rebirth the old engine parts, But there are cracks in the heads and now i want to now can the be saved i hope so. Can someone give me advice on that i don t want to use new parts only period time parts and work to keep it originel and give the builder respect because for me its a part of history that i want to restore Here are some pics gr henri

I'm planning to put the engine in my bug so the engine can finaly be put to the test, cause the high reving nature of the engine is no good match with my heavy bus. With the right gearbox it takes my bus under 18sec. Even with the tarp on.

I lightened and polished it. ( lot of ours) & not counterweighted stock rods lightened and polished. mahle 92mm piston and barrels. lighted and notched for valve clearence. lightend vw flywheel then bottom end was balanced. cam was a grind of my own spec which i wont give details on.(sorry) heads were 044s 40mm inlet 35.5 exhaust, ported by myself i even ground off valve guides inside the ports. 40mm dells comp was 12.2:1 and i was shifting at 7800rpm. this small engine was alot of fun and it never broke in the 3 years i drove it and raced it.

Q uote from : m ym e dusa on April 11, 2013, 16:01:42 PM @pe te r: te ll us m ore about the ge arbox ;)

Hi Mymedusa, Its a Hewland JFR 6 speed sequential shift gearbox with straight cut gears and dog engagement. Its a smaller and cheaper version of their well known FTR box. They get used in formula 3 cars and some single make formula cars like Formula BMW, Chevron also use them in their new car single make racing series. Its a good fit in a beetle with little modification to the car required (just remake the front mount) and make a bellhousing (modify an existing one). The difficult bit is the clutch as the standard arm for the release bearing does not fit if you want to keep the motor in the standard location which is what I've done. This means the gearbox sits slightly further forward and lower in the car than normal which helps improve the weight distribution a little. My car is 62% rear and 38% front currently but my ultimate aim it to get it to 60 / 40 if possible.

Hi Torben,

Print Page - Small powerhouses and old school

The Hewland boxes Mark 9 and earlier are only good for around 150ft lb torque, but this one is apparently good for around 240ft lb subject to R&P. As Alex suggested it would not be much use for the big guns on here but for me I hope its going to be a good set up. The plan is that it would give me a bit of performance advantage in terms of the shift time and having the motor operating in a better rev range (more area under the curve) for more of the run. Time will literally tell if that proves to be the case or not..... Peter Title: Re: Small powerhouses and old school Post by: BUGULA on May 20, 2013, 19:09:36 PM I built a 1641 with a VZ15 cam, 10:1 comp, home ported stock size valve heads, 40mm Dells and a c/w crank. It went 14.79 with 6" slicks and a stock 3.88 trans in a '71 standard. Open stinger and fan belt on. The lite flywheel made it really hard to launch with the slicks. My next small combo will be thick wall 88's (I have an old set from a gasser) with a 69 or 74 crank and a webcam 86A. Maybe, somekind of 40x35 store bought heads. Title: Re: Small powerhouses and old school Post by: Old Guy on June 12, 2013, 21:27:05 PM Hi Peter, It sounds great. I am assuming that with the dog-box you are not using the clutch to upshift. If that's the case what are you using to kill the engine temporarily? The shifts sound too quick to just be "bliping" the throttle while you yank it into gear. Title: Re: Small powerhouses and old school Post by: whirligig on June 12, 2013, 21:46:38 PM well our bits 1679(and I mean bitsa)whent 14.9 lifting off with the new gearbox ,lower 3rd and 4th,so looking forward to the gti meet at shakey ,dont know if it will take warmed slicks though!!!!!! Title: Re: Small powerhouses and old school Post by: 67nos48ida on June 16, 2013, 07:54:04 AM I was active in the Cal-Look seen in the mid to late 70ty's. At that time had a 1750 too. lots of head work, and with a FK89. Transmission somewhat total different that is where most of my money went. Lets just say on the freeway, in the slow lane I would be doing 45 miles an hour. We wont talk about RPM's either But also I ran a little additive to help me down the 1/4 and behind Nabisco's. My car was 19967 Black VW (old school) and hung out with DKK which I was a member of. But to this day I will still build another 1750.(almost the same thing I had as I had back in the day) Track time at OCIR without help12.90, and with help12.10. The unit that I was using was installed my Miller Brother's. ****I am trying to get in touch with Bill S. from DKK, since I don't live in California any longer.***** Phone or cell? email address?

Q uote from : O ld Guy on June 12, 2013, 21:27:05 PM Hi Pe te r, It sounds gre at. I am assum ing that with the dog-box you are not using the clutch to upshift. If that's the case what are you using to k ill the e ngine te m porarily? The shifts sound too quick to just be "bliping" the throttle while you yank it into ge ar.

As you suggest no clutch to shift up, or down actually just a blip on the way down to release the gear. I was lifting slightly originally on the way up the box, but to be honest my brain did not cope particularly well with the coordination and I kept making a mess of it, so I ended up keeping my foot in and just giving the lever a good tug. It shifted as you can hear on the clip from Alex. I spoke to Hewland about the possibility of this beforehand and have since and they suggested as long as the gear releases and you are quick then you will be OK. I got the impression this was particularly so in my case as my car is not heavy and has relatively little torque or horsepower, relative to what many modern Hewland boxes are designed for. I'll have the box apart at the end of the year assuming it stays in one bit till then and see how it looks, but as the upshifts sound crisp and the gears release easily and there are no nasty engagement noises, fingers crossed it will be OK. I'm going to MOT the car tomorrow and assuming it passes I can start getting some street miles on it, so hopefully I can get the hang of driving it before EBI in a couple of weeks.

Thanks to a lot of help from Ian (WPS) and Peter (Cogbox) for the best part of 10 years the car came a long way with us collectively making small incremental improvements which eventually resulted an the car running regular high 11's street driven and reliable as you like. I can say there is a lot to be said for staying with a combination and developing it! I learnt a lot, and had a great fun along the way. Things have moved on a bit with the car in general, but Peter and Ian have continued to help and be involved along with many other friends I've made along the way. The car passed its MOT today so had my first drive on the road since New Years Day 2011. I know I've said this before, but my good it feels fast on the road when you have been used to a diesel polo for 2 and a bit years! I'm slightly embarrassed to admit it, but I've been driving around this morning just trying to find an excuse to change gear! The acceleration and noise and generally feeling is just fantastic! A hot VW on the street really is such great fun....... The good news the back of the car feels really planted and a big improvement over the way it felt previously on the road. That said I've not been going too quickly as yet, so its still a bit early to tell but it certainly feels promising. One other interesting thing. I'm currently running the car without an external oil cooler or the standard one on the block and it still took at least 20 minutes of driving to get the oil temperature over 80 degrees which was a big surprise. I have the external cooler pre fitted in a new location due to the suspension mods and just need to make up some new oil lines but I knew my initial journeys would be just a few short local runs I didn't bother thinking I could just keep an eye on the oil temp. As it turns out I could go far further than I thought, but to be fair it was a regular traffic low speed so that does go some way to explaining it. That and the fact even thought its nearly the longest day of the year here in the UK it was only about 15 degrees! I've a bunch of must do jobs before EBI, and a few which might have to wait as I'm leaving here a week this Thursday which means I only have two nights in the garage between now and then. I had hoped to drive the car there, but its looking less likely now, I'll see how I get on with the must do jobs.

Title: Re: Small powerhouses and old school Post by: slowlearner on June 30, 2013, 05:32:31 AM First time poster... I remember coming across this thread and Johannes 1603 a few years back and being transfixed by the idea alone. Of course the engine itself is more amazing. I've got some 'out of the box' plans for a mini-mouse motor of sorts. I swapped my subaru powered dunebuggy for this oval last year... (http://i279.photobucket.com/albums/kk127/stpeterscia/1956%20Oval%20window%20beetle/IMAG09791.jpg) (http://s279.photobucket.com/user/stpeterscia/media/1956%20Oval%20window%20beetle/IMAG09791.jpg.html) Nice original paint (mostly) car. Came with a Judsoned 40hp. Cool setup except, it wouldn't pull the skin off a rice pudding and I am really beginning to miss autokhanas I used to do. I live in Australia. It is a great place to find rust free cars, but an awful place to get modified cars approved. I was up for building a blown 1600 for the car when it was made clear to me that swapping to front discs would involve thousands of dollars of brake testing and certificates. Dumb, but they're the facts. We don't have the dollars or room for tow cars or trailers. So, I need to keep registration and stay within capacity limits. Which means a supercharged 1300. Still figuring the details out, but I'll be taking plenty of cues from this thread. Low budget, thinking outside the box, etc. ;) Title: Re: Small powerhouses and old school Post by: modnrod on June 30, 2013, 09:34:39 AM Morning Mr Slow! ;D I too live in our great red land, in a state that also has a disease called "Tech Inspector Apoplexy". I have had a 1641 with Solex and modded stock exhaust running mid-15s, lots of others here have run mid-14s all day with a stock-looking centre carb set-up (hide them under a factory air cleaner assembly), and I have heard of a guy in the US, who is my undoubted hero even though I don't know his name, who has achieved low-13s out of a 1584 with single Solex! :o Now even though that's 2 seconds slower than Johannes twin-IDA'd motorbike motor, it won't even cause a second glance at a roadside inspection by one of our red dust covered finest...........

It's all good man! ;D Title: Re: Small powerhouses and old school Post by: Peter Shattock on July 07, 2013, 09:30:48 AM Well after what seamed to be a long break in the calendar before Ebi, it came and went in a flash. I had a list of jobs to do after UKDD, which just about got done in time, but I only just got the car MOT'd before leaving for EBI. So with basically no street miles I decided not to drive the car to the track, which was a bit of a disappointment as I had hoped to drive. There was no running on Friday due to the track not being safe / dry following a lot of rain the day before but it was good to have a look round the pits and catch up with people. The track opened on Saturday and stayed that way for the rest of the weekend, but was single lane only and 1/8th mile initially on Sat again for safety reasons. It was a shame there were no side by side passes, for the crowd, but I don't think they were too disappointed judging by the number of people watching. I ran the first run with clutched gear changes just to get back into the swing of it and all felt good then shifted without the clutch for the rest of the weekend. I'm getting the hang of the shifting now and the good news is both the suspension and gearbox have been reliable to date. Unfortunately the oil leak issue I thought I had resolved was still a problem but the plan B parts I had with me fixed it. That said it turns out that in fixing one issue I'd made another which resulted in a temporary fix at the track which needs a proper fix now the car is home again. Nothing spectacular to report in terms of the times but I was pleased to get into the 11's (11.89)on the street tires on a road based track. Hopefully I can now get some street miles on the car and get back to driving to the track. That said next race is Bugjam which is only in a few weeks, so I better pull my finger out! There are a couple of short film clips on the EBI video thread in happenings if you're interested, thanks to Jo, Ian / Mav. You can hear the ratios are all wrong but 1st to 4th should give you and idea of what 5th and 6th will sound like next year. Peter Title: Re: Small powerhouses and old school Post by: Peter Shattock on July 15, 2013, 14:20:45 PM Quote One other interesting thing. I'm currently running the car without an external oil cooler or the standard one on the block and it still took at least 20 minutes of driving to get the oil temperature over 80 degrees which was a big surprise.

As it turns out I could go far further than I thought, but to be fair it was a regular traffic low speed so that does go some way to explaining it. That and the fact even thought its nearly the longest day of the year here in the UK it was only about 15 degrees! Well the car is back in one piece again after a few fixes and upgrades and took it for a drive on Sunday afternoon as is was about 30 degrees so I thought it would be a good hot running test with the oil cooler in its new location and to see if I can leave the deck lid closed as I never really liked the look of the standoffs. The oil cooler is now where the torsion housing used to be as I figured getting the weight further forward would be a good thing and if all we under and about air running of the back of the floor pans and into the area under the boot floor it should not be too bad. That said its closer than ideal to the underside of the boot floor directly above where the torsion housing normally sits. The car got up to 90 degrees with about 10 minutes running in traffic and a couple of short runs at 60mph on some open roads. A short blast later and the temp was just over 90 and it then stayed between 90 and 95 with similar traffic and open road driving. Oil pressure was still good at this point around 40psi at 4000rpm. I then switched the fans on at 95 which dropped the temp to 85 in about 1-2 mins. I left the fans on and the temp stuck at 85 or there abouts for the rest of the journey. When I got home I left the car on tick over with the fans on and with the low rpm the oil temp dropped to 80 degrees. So it looks like I still have some good temp control for the longer journeys to the track as it’s unlikely to get significantly hotter over here. As before the oil pressure and oil temp were quite closely linked with a 10 degree increase in oil temp resulting in approximately a 10 psi drop in oil pressure, perhaps slightly less if anything. All this with the deck lid closed, but I might nick one of my son’s tennis balls to open the bottom of the lid just to give a bit more air to the engine and see if it makes any significant difference to the temps for the drive to the track on Friday as it looks like it’s still going to be hot still. More street miles on Wednesday just because I can! Peter Title: Re: Small powerhouses and old school Post by: Shane Noone on July 15, 2013, 15:05:01 PM Hi Peter, Very Interesting reading and real life tech feedback, as I also drive my racecar out and about and to the track and back. ( Just raced at Dragstalgia after driving there and back in those same 30 degree temps ). My 2332 Comp Eliminator motor was sat around 100 degrees C Oil Temps measured in sump via VDO dipstick sender on the road jouney. My cooling is stock doghouse plus 19 row Mocal and Kenlowe fan. I had the fan on the whole journey. When I got home with the motor idling on my driveway and the fan running it did pull down to 95 quite quickly and I expect would drop to 90 if I waited. ( I have seen the fan drop the oil temp by up to 10 degrees C previously but on cooler days ). Your setup is running nice cooler oil temps. I can't remember do you have the MS230 heads on your mouse ? What's you Compression Ratio set to ? ( am assuming as road car your using some 99 RON pump fuel ). Have you got any pics of your remote cooler location you can share on here ? I did have a quick look under your car at DD but can't remember. Thanks, Shane.

Good to hear you're another one who driving your car on the road and to the track, and with any luck home again! I run modified std heads so plenty of fin area to help with keeping the heads cool, a CSP non dog house fan shroud with a wide fan and a power pulley. My oil temp sender is also in the sump. CR is 12.7:1 and it runs on Shell 99 pump gas. I'm sure I have a picture of the cooler some where but I'm hopeless at all the resizing and all that to post them. I'll have a go at some point, but basically its in the std torsion housing location. Peter Title: Re: Small powerhouses and old school Post by: Shane Noone on July 16, 2013, 11:33:35 AM

Morning Peter, Yep, there's not too many of us left that still do that ! ;) Ah ok, yes the extra cooling ability of a stock style head on a street driven motor. Wise choice ! Are you running any additives like anti-det stuff when racing on pump 99 with that kind of compression ratio ?? And you just cruise around the streets presumably at low speed RPM's where the effective CR is much lower due to cam bleed off on plain 99 without any signs of detonation.....? Ok no worries about uploading pics etc - I'm pretty useless at that stuff myself :D Just wondered if your cooler was flat or upright in location and whether you were forcing air through it with some sort of ducting or just relied on an electric fan to push / pull air through the cooler as and when you switched it on etc...... Cheers Shane Ps when / where are you next planning to race as if I can make it I'll come take a fresh look and say hello. Title: Re: Small powerhouses and old school Post by: Peter Shattock on July 16, 2013, 14:00:31 PM Hi Shane, No det issues, but as you say the cam has big duration so at low rpm it makes very little dynamic CR so not much heat. Not had to use an octane booster but I do have a bottle just in case.... Open road speed is slow though 4000rpm is about 60mph but temps are well under control then. I like to keep them as low as poss within reason (8090 degrees), so engine expansion is kept in check so that the oil pressure stays good with nice tolerances for the bearings and lifter bores. Next outing with the car is this weekend at Bugjam. If you can face the mayhem that is Bugjam drop by. Peter Title: Re: Small powerhouses and old school Post by: monkiboy on July 16, 2013, 15:02:42 PM Hmmmm interesting reading on the fuel/CR/det etc I know there are ALOT of other factors to consider but I was worring about 11.8:1 :-\

peter there's a tread about brian's engine here (http://cal-look.no/lounge/index.php/topic,18903.0.html) Title: Re: Small powerhouses and old school Post by: Peter Shattock on July 28, 2013, 20:28:43 PM Well this is my last update again for a while following the race last weekend at Bugjam, as I’ve decided to make an early start to my planned winter updates, in a hope I can avoid a last minute rush next year I’m glad to say Bugjam was far better than I had expected as an event. It’s been a few years since I was there last and the way they have set up the racers pit meant there were only people interested that bothered to walk in which was good. I’m sure there were plenty of revellers there but they didn’t make it to the racers pits. To the credit of the Santa Pod staff it was all very well organised and all in all an enjoyable weekend. I finally got to drive the car to the track again which was the first long drive I had time for with previous longest runs being only around 30-35 minutes. I just bumbled along for the 2 ½ hours it took to get to the track from home. At about 55mph oil temps were just over 90 degrees with the fans off and the deck lid closed. Fans on they got down to below 75 degrees and as before the oil pressure increased over 10 psi in this temp range. The first long run with the gear box revealed it shifts quicker with warm oil (no great surprise) which is now on the list of jobs to contemplate for the future. Friday was a day of bracket racing for me with a string of 11.5* second runs, but the clutch was marginal on a good track after a couple of runs and that familiar clutch aroma filled the garage after each run. On Saturday this resulted in me trying to get the car off the line without a burnout or even a tire scrub the latter was what I was doing on Friday. This worked remarkably well and I actually managed to run a couple of 11.4*’s just to break the monotony of the 5*’s. I went backwards on Sunday with 2 11.6*’s, but I managed to get back to the 4*’s for the first round of eliminations but got beaten by JG (again). The highlight at the track was a 117mph run which is my best terminal speed, but I think this was mainly due to a healthy tail wind rather than anything either the car or I did. Having packed everything back in the car again the drive home was great on a nice warm evening, I left the fans on and drove faster when there wasn’t traffic jams and could keep the oil temps at 80 degrees between 60-65mph and did this for about an hour on the last part of the journey, again with the deck lid closed. Big thanks go to Ian, Alex and Mav for all their help and advice over the weekend. The cars not gone any quicker this year and has actually been at best 1.4 tenths of its best time from 2010. It would of course have been nice to go quicker, but this year was all about trying to prove the new setup works and is safe and reliable. The good news is that this has proved to be the case in all respects having driven the car a fair bit on the road now and on 3 different tracks. Hopefully there are no horror stories when I get the car apart, but I’ll just have to wait and see on that front. I have to say a big thank you to Luke and Andy at Robinson Race Cars, as they mounted the gearbox, built the rear suspension and set the car up and provided loads of advice and help along the way. Also Paul for the gearbox and the suspension design advice which in all has made the car very easy to drive and a lot of fun to change gear with! I have a busy winter ahead, but looking forward to 2014 already.
