What engine?


"All of a sudden it started making noise, then started losing power. I limped the car home and tried to get it up the driveway, the engine just died."

 

Why do people do this?

A $100 tow bill is never as much as the extra damage you cause by trying to "limp the car home".

 

Don't be that person !

Late 90's Kawasaki ZX9R (900cc, 4 cylinder) with Kinsler mechanical injection, running on methanol.

Love the smell of napalm methanol in the morning (or any time).

Here's our last run.  Only 110.7.   It shows the process of setting up, running, and how long it takes for us to drive out to tow the truck back.  

 

Our re-build for next year is already underway.  The rear axle is almost done.  Transmission in the works.  Ballast being acquired.  Plenty of smaller upgrades laid out on the white board for the winter.
