Though you might not get into triple digits through a corner on the street, up in the mountains I have found myself going through "slow" corners at twice the speed li..recommendation. So you can, in a sense.

"Corvettes Buicks of the sports car world"? I think you are being unfair to the Corvette. The latest versions compare favorably with other makes, especially in handling (I think it posted a higher skidpad value than the Ferrari 360) and car magazines hold it in high regard.

Circa 80s technology, makes ~120 hp. Big-fast-ugly-Mofo-of-a-cruiser.

Ah, doesn't NASCAR *require* a pushrod engine? OHC isn't allowed, which is why you don't see any in the series. It's not because they are "easier" to modify.



NHRA? I don't know for certain, but I thought that Top Fuel also mandated pushrods. True?



Of course, where we really see pushrod dominance is in F1...

The drysdale V8 has a displacement of 750 cubic centimetres and can run at 18000 rpm. Haven't you guys heard of the bos hoss?

Horsepower: 502

Carburation 850 CFM 4-barrel



It has so much torque and hp that it does'nt need gears!

I'll wait to see how well the new Triumph cruiser engine works. It won't be a V-8 but it should behave very much like a downsized small block. Should be relatively compact, lightweight and torquey as hell. Lots fewer moving parts too.

How about that guy in England who put two KZ1000 cylinder blocks on one crankcase? He did a fantastic job of it, too. This is the same guy who builds custom 5 cylinder Kawasaki two-strokes, as well.



Anyone got a link for it?

What do you mean ugly? The VMax is a classic that can still thrill. Can be made to handle if you want. Feels furiously fast and can be built to scare. Garners much cred in the real world. Never gotten more attention from a bike. And it sounds like a v-8 votrod taking off!
