1460cc's @ 9000rpm according to the title. The bottom end has to be more impressive than the head.

It's very light to be able to respond like that ,,,,,

Still amazes me what people can get out the olde A series!

 

I'd be interested to know what the bottom end is.  Possibly an Arrow crank?

It really does go to show how much the standard head, even when modified, strangles these engines,after all, there, very little that can be done to the bottom end to increase HP.

 

A modified stock crank will do that, but just what sort of life you'd get from it could be another story, though it will fare better than you might think. The Rods and Pistons though will be something else.

 

I wonder too how well the drive train puts up with all that?

 

Looking at that video, it's quite apparent that it has solid engine mounts and steadies. Compare it to how much this one moves (and yes, another GREAT vid with high quality sound)

Im sure that the 190hp is at the fly not the wheels. I know there are lots of people getting that sort of power from the old A series nowadays, But most of whom are with forced induction not N/A like this one.

The transmissions today are pretty robust even with lots of power if there the right kit!

Arrow cranks are not all they have cracked up to be. They have been redesigned in the last few years without the c clip groove in the end due to cracking and I <think> the 88mm versions have now been taken from sale, again due to failures. I also know that the 86mm cranks are prone to cracking a pal of mine has had 3 cranks in several years and now says that he will never use another.

 

I myself boast big power and swear by the standard cranks although trying to convince the masses is somewhat difficult..

 

Looking at this car it seems to be a road car so will not take the abuse a racer does, Its the revs that scare me though 9000 is lots for any engine. although not possible with this power keeping the revs low will increase engine and gearbox life.   

 

omega pistons and arrow rods are the way to go. I myself use these and im happy to report its all good.

Are you sure it's not just the Go Pro getting sucked off its mounting?

That first one was immense. The second not too bad either.

How long can these cars stay like that reliably though? If you sat on a motorway at that speed, for example?

Just to clarify, I don't mean is it going to blow up after 10 minutes, more how many miles between rebuilds if using it at that level all the time?
