Kinner Power

Not to be out-done, I've installed a 160 hp Kinner into the light weight Elan.

We have a radial engined Austin 7 running in VSCC events here; the owner also races cars of 26 ltr and 42 ltr (that's 4030 cu in and 6510 cu in).

Who says everything is bigger in the USA? :twisted:

Yes Bill, but that's 160 bhp @ 1850 rpm (5" bore with a 5.5" stroke) or cruise @ 107 hp @ 1620 rpm. Now just imagine loping down Fleet Street with all that torque in an open cockpit Elan.

That's fantastic! I love the reactions my MR2 evokes. There was new traffic on my videos and it took me a bit to find out why.

Don't just sit there and pretend, hook it up!
