Pete,
The engine in the car is a 1955 Chrysler 301 cube Windsor block with '55 Hemi heads fitted.
The 301 is a "square" engine with the bore & stroke identical.
Greg,
I have 6 early Hemi engines, all were imported by myself from Washington State.

Very interesting 8) 8)

Thanks for support Chris. Lots of hurdles in the way only makes life more interesting doesn't it?
I don't know Lance, but know quite a few pro riders and even they think i'm mad. Motorpacing is a dying sport..it used to be huge.

Helmets are Ok....Leathers are being looked into. No way could i ride in my off the shelf Moto leathers. Without fuel involved i'm hoping there is a case for stretch panels to be allowed ,maybe kangaroo hide leather ( lighter/thinner/stronger) is another option.
I'm not even sure about salt's suitability for this. All previous records have been on bitumen...Edwards airforce base in USA/ autobahn in Germany/ M1 in England....

I have a motorbike which i am setting up for training/ pacing, a 1977 z1000 Kwacka. Enough power to do required speeds, long and heavy and stable.. Donated to the cause by a mate...I built it for him 20 years ago!
Will start a build thread when i get into it. At present all effort is being put into Uni' studies...well, mostly.

If its got b**bs or wheels its bound to be trouble!

Currently working on more traction.
That and adding length seeing as Greg's is longer.

Ive got a project that ive been sitting on for a while. RZ250 Yam and a 350 Banshee top end with some chambers. I bought it as a project from a guy who had lost interest. RZ frame, Aprillia RS250 Mk.II front end and RGV gull wing swing arm. I was going to make it a track bike but im probably getting a bit old to go round corners at silly speeds so it will make a good candidate for the MPS/G 350 class im hoping. Pics to follow.
I hope it will be louder than my RGV :lol: :lol: :lol:
