New engine in "hemipanter"

A tread for streetcars! So I like to show my streetcar then that just got a new engine in it, a 9.4 liter Hemi motor. Apart from the old engine this one is all aluminium that reduuces the weight of the car to 2310 pounds or 1050 kilo.
Interesting to see how it perform as soon as the snow is gone...

9.4 ltr Hemi in a 1 tonne car road

That's completely mad Goran... and totally awesome! If anyone else built it I'd suspect it would fold in two when they put their foot down, but being you I'm guessing everything has been properly worked out

Yes, definitely not a car for the snow....

Hello dtype38, it was a while ago. It's fun to be able to afford to buy an aluminum block to my car. My car's not a race, but more a spectacular creation built on emotional grounds. It's fun to digress a little from pure engineering feats and mixing in both emotion and design. But of course the car must work perfectly. A little excessive construction also has the advantage to provide experience and clarify what impact a "hyperbole" brings. Then we must not forget that it's a snap to get behind the wheel of the car, it wakes ones mind up.

Nice to hear the hemipanter is still evolving Goran! Are you able to desribe how much faster you have made the car over the years?

It is not so easy to know how to describe the performance, it requires well-arranged test (that eliminate the driver skill) if one is to judge from reality. Theoretically, I know that the car is lighter and more power in the engine, so the acceleration rate should be faster now. It is mostly acc at speeds over 100 km/hr, for it is only then that tire grip begins to suffice. But then we have cornering and braking performance where aerodynamics have a lot to say and it is not as developed in my car. I would say that the braking performance is slightly better now than before because got more weight over the rear wheels, so it might make an improvement of 5% compare to for 5 years ago. I've driven on racing tires in all the years before, but now I have Pirelli P Zero, and it does not provide the same grip.

Agree, the car is insane. But I have gone into a bit in the dreamland, old musicians who I am, and then get the emotions a little more free games. It feels great to allow the street car to become more spectacular as it still can not be built like a racing car. I think it's fun and I hope that more people think it's funny to see in one of the many pieces boxed existence.
