It's a 1615cc Powertech bespoke unit, 280bhp @10,500rpm.
280bhp doesn't sound like a lot, but the car only weighs 500kg, so it's power to weight ration is 560bhp/ton. I've raced it against full blown Viper GTS-R GT Race Cars, McLarens & Ferrari GT Racers, and although they're neck to neck on the straights, they cant live with the light weight & down force through the bends. It obliterates everything! - Apart from the Radical SR8's. They're Hyper-Racers. I could retro-fit a Powertech V8 to my car, but I get enough fun out of it as it is. And my wallet wont let me.

Sweet, that is light!

I'm with you, most car guys are all about the HP number and don't even think about the power-weight ratio. it really helps in the corners as well.

Here are my 2 current hot rides, the Radical Motorsport car in the second pic is one of only a few street legal (in Europe) examples in the world. Probably something to do with the urge to swerve & avoid bees going in your mouth.
Very nice LP560! And I bet the radical is an absolute blast to have on the track.

Bump! Where's the rest of your rides?

I just swapped in a second new Arrington 440 stroker crate into the challenger, running 11.427 quarters on street tires with a good hookup and well timed shift.
It's time for a full cage and 5-point harness before I add nitrous and possibly break into high 10s.

(on a private road...please don't do this on public streets!)
Arrington 440 stroker 580RWHP Challenger (2 min 57 sec)

How do you get these newer cars with "Hot" engines to pass a smog inspection?

Greg,

That depends upon where you live.

We've never had statewide vehicle emissions testing here in Minnesota. From 1991-1999, the Mpls/St. Paul metro area had mandatory annual testing for non-commercial passenger vehicles. Vehicles licensed as collector-cars (must be least 20 years old & not used for daily transportation) and vehicles licensed as street-rods (must be either manufactured before 1949 or made to resemble a vehicle from the era & not used for daily transportation) were exempt. Plus, you could modify newer vehicles as long as they still met the emissions requirements for the chassis or engine - which ever was newer.

The program was discontinued after ongoing air quality studies in the metro area revealed that smog testing itself had no measurable effect. Although pollutants fell 6% annually during the first 2 years of testing, more-efficient vehicles & cleaner-burning gasoline were credited with the drop. (Pollutants had been falling just as steadily for 5 years before the program started.) The fact that running a typical lawn mower for 3 hours created as much pollution as driving a newer car 1000 miles also played a part in the decision to drop the program.

I had to get my modified '87 Grand National tested a few times back then. It easily passed, even though I had tuned it for 403 HP & 485 pounds of torque at the wheels. It did so well that it surprised the testers. They said it was clean enough to meet the requirements for a mid-90s car.

No emissions testing here. My tuner said to run an extra cat on each side if I moved to a state that does test.

Here in California we have to undergo biannual emissions on every street registered car built after 1974. They require the car to test while running on a dyno that has a camera logged into the state office!

The only get around is a home built/kit car registered under a SB100 variance. They only allow 500 new ones in the state every year!
