    Re: Crazy Screaming Video: A Two-Stroke V8 Powered Sand Rail On the Dyno

    Much like Group B rallying and other excesses of the 80's, this engine was meant for F1 and offshore racing.

    Evinrude published a bunch of stuff like this on how to go crazy fast on the water: http://issuu.com/liquidnirvana/docs/...wners-manual--

    anyone know of a build thread somewhere? I like it.

    where do you get an Evinrude - VW adaptor?

    ok, around here, if you need that much power you buy an innie
    Competition Bass boats and off shore hot rods sometimes have up to three of those.

    I saw a DFV powered open wheel car at a vintage race a few years ago. That summabitch was ear splitting loud!

    The graphs are because it clearly took the dyno operator a while to figure out how to get a good RPM signal from an inductive pickup.... not a simple task on something like this engine, I am sure!


    Awesome sound, reminds me of a quieter version of the Cosworth DFV V8 I once tuned,

    I wonder how much of that screaming is those aggressive tires on the dyno rollers. I'd like to hear just the motor on a dyno.
