lol, fail.

What will they think of next.

Im sure it sounds nice but i think the sideways forces from the bends will eat all the torque that the motor produces,
you'd be shifting down faster than a 1liter car trying to climb a steep hill. :lmao

well gearing wise they would have it figured out that you are only using like two gears for the track. I looked, I dont know out of how many cause the site is horrible, but he is 5th right now.

I am interested in how it performs against the competition.
my guess is pretty poorly. I mean, the v8's they use in stock car racing are just as built as this thing, and 4 more cyl's = 4x the power and torque. This setup is nothing but a handicap against v8 powered stock cars in teh same class.

i will never even compare to a nascar v8 with the restricters on.....not in hp,tq, or transient throttle response.....you'll need 9 close ratio gears just to help tq multiplication


it's only running 550cc injectors meaning it's putting down under 350whp.......it'll get spanked

NASCAR pondering move to fuel injection - ESPN
BRISTOL, Tenn. -- NASCAR is researching the possibility of moving from engines with carburetors to fuel injection.

Officials met with top engine builders from organizations earlier this month to discuss the move of that technology and others that would make cars more fuel efficient and more like cars on the manufacturer showroom floor.

Manufacturers switched fully from carburetors to fuel injection in the 1980s.

No timetable has been set for when fuel injection could be used, but Toyotas Lee White said his company could be ready to go by the 2010 opener at Daytona if NASCAR gave the go-ahead.

"I would vote for it," White said on Friday at Bristol Motor Speedway. "No question, because everyone right now is spending an absolute fortune on [carburetor technology] that has absolute zero application in real life."

White said all manufacturers need to be more conscious about the environment to survive, and he believes NASCAR needs to move more in that direction.

"Sit in the grandstands and watch these cars go into Turns 1 and Turns 3 and watch all the fuel belching out the tailpipe," he said.

White said the transition could be made easily and without great expense.

"Its something that could be implemented along with a few other things that could be discussed that could potentially reduce costs and increase the potential audience for the sport," he said.

wait wait wait, did I just read twin clutch for a torque-less freak car?

i'm gonna laugh since it's probably slower than most mildly modded street v8's ....haha

interesting article. Wow tho, I'd figure they'd have switched, like every other motor sport lol.

Doesn't Honda make a V8 for the Ridgeline? or is it a V6? They couldn't have used one of those?

lol, its not in Nascar, those engines are very closley scrutenered. You would never get a I4 in there. I stated already that he is 5th our of probably around 20 I would guess I dont know how many there is just a guess, but I do know he is 5th.

I dont think they are going to release its true numbers either.

This thing sounds nuts!!! Just found some vids!

I wonder how dereks engine build compares to theirs with all things considered.

You know, money spent and hp/tq developed per liter.

the car is under 350 rwhp...it's running 550cc injectors....which indicates 260-350whp range

well that means dick all, why even care about hp/tq per liter. meaningless.
Hp per liter is meaningless, but tq per liter is not. All you need for more hp is to spin faster, getting torque without using gearing is much more difficult at a set displacement.

IMO tho, either number by itself be it HP or TQ is meaningless without other information.

Things that matter to me HP/TQ made from what size engine, with what compression ratio.

Simply put: my view is it matters only if you have all the numbers to compare the engines to each other. Then Hp/TQ produced per X ammount of displacement matters.

My favorite example is the Rx8's renesis engine vs the subi wrx's ej20T the RX's makes a LOT more hp, however its tq sucks balls.

The other thing I don't get with that car is that it has a twin disc clutch setup for a small engine that doesn't need that kind of tq handling capacity.
