All this data is derived from Computer Sims

Power plant supercharged .8 l (yes I said point 8 L) 2 cycle radial 3 cylinder.
making 1450 Hp at 11000 rpm and 725 FT/LB of torque at 10000 rpm and still brings in 450 FT/LB of torque at 2000 rpm with Direct cylinder Fuel injection, Fuel being H2 (if we are going to switch to hydrogen we need to capture the imagination of the people). And it has the Octane rating to handle 15 to 1 compression ratio. 2.4 inch stroke with 3 inch bore. The whole engine with supercharger is slightly larger than a coffee can, and would sit under the floorpan along with the 6 speed Lycoming Airshifted Transmission, with Auto and manual mode. some times it's just way to fun to shift. Clutch is Fluid, no disk.


The Chassis mid mounted Power plant, AWD, body, Chassis, suspension and drivetrain, are all made of Carbon Graphite.

82 inch wheelbase
Curbweight a little over 1300 lb.

Quarter mile time just under 6 seconds and toping 235 miles per hour while still in 4th gear.
Fuel economy I figure around 14 mi per gallon.

Sounds nice, but I think it would have to be a little bigger than a coffee can if it was a radial with a 2.4" stroke, especially one that has to handle 15:1 SC. That's 15:1 off boost static compression?

I want to see one of those Audi 5 cylinders out of the S cars on hydrogen! It's 2.2 liters, makes 260ftlbs at 1950rpm, and peak power of 230hp at 5800 rpm, with a redline of 7000-8000, depending on application. That's on 92 octane...

BMW recently had an older 7 series on the show car circuit, running on hydrogen. It was a really simple conversion, and it made quite a bit more power than the gas. Not only does have a higher octane rating, it also contains more energy.

There's a good page that has info on a propane swap, and table with info about various fuel types...

what is it with people and small cars?

not too long ago one pulled out in front of me while I was driving a loaded 2 ton truck.

they pulled out only 35 feet in front of me. I could do nothing.
and then they acted like thet did not see me.
how do you miss a 2 ton truck?

you really can't miss a two ton, and normally in a small car you can hear it very well, even wit you music off, cuz they are so cheap. if you look in your mirror you really cant miss it.

If the Civic slammed on it's brakes, and you had to swerve, I would think you were following a little closely... Or was this in really bunched up traffic?

So has anyone seen that commercial for the Midas(?) shop, the one where the guy brings in his Yugo for a tuneup?

(yugo driver)"Wow, it's running great!"(looks over at tech in passenger sat) "Let's jump the bridge!"

(tech)"But we're in a Yugo!"

(guy tries to jump bridge that is out, dukes of hazard style, makes it 5 feet before dropping into creek)

(tech shrugs shoulders)"Yugo...)

focus. Both are FWD, both are commuter cars, both are reliable
WHoa !!! HAHAHAHAH .. Fuckus reliable ? There are more pages of recalls on the focus than I can shake a stick at.. ! ... sad but true ...

Quote:
but we are talking about an 'SL' model with DOHC 5 spd and 222 plus hp and over 205 torque with minor mods, I have walked many v6 cameros and mustang's stock
ROFL ! uh... My Tacoma 4x4 has never lost to a V6 Mustang / Camaro either.. some were mod'd. both at the Track and Street.. have videos too... I just wouldn't get too carried away about how amazing that 'SL' is... you slap a turbo on it, and I'm all over it being badass... know what I mean !?

Quote:
Anything ford
because they are slow and very very
unreliable
Yea.. pretty much ! especially the reliability part ....

Quote:
Slow and unreliable? Where do these come from? My mustang's fine at 35k miles, not a single prob to date...hopefully, luck will continue. And mine's fast, so...Maybe we shouldn't count mine, though, since it has too much invested.
.... ROFL ! 35k ? Is that a joke ? :apuke: ..... you need at least 150k before you can say anything about reliability... check the Consumer reviews, watch what you see on the side of the road.. talk to mechanics.. read the reviews... Ford is NOT know for being reliable or even close to it... ehhh

I'm not gonna tell you Toyota, or Honda or whatever, is perfectly reliablie or whatever... but there is a difference... hopefully you never have trouble w/ your Stang.. but judging by the numbers... it could happen...

.... As far as cars I hate:

- V6 Mustang / Camaro
- Most Fords, but not all
- Asstek
- VW BUG
- n/a Eclipse
- n/a Supra
- n/a anything that was offered Turbo'd
- Riced Econo Cars....

Thats all I can think of now...


I am probably an asshole..... heh

Love how generally STUPID the anti-whatever posts are.

I can tell how many clueless kids and inbred retards are posting, including the moron who started this thread.

So tell, me, does it physically hurt to have your mind closed that tightly? It should. I've never understood why people actually LIKE to be closed minded and hateful.

Go ahead. Insult me with your childish retorts if it makes you feel better. Try to ignore the meaning of my words, so you don't have to actually think.
