Remarkable New Air Cooled Landspeed Record thumbs up

190 mph is off the charts best ever air cooled.

Nothing more known except the blurb below.

Designation is EMS...3-4 liter Modified Sport.

Two seater with aero package improvements.


"A new all time fastest air-cooledland speed record was set this morning when

Dan Lawson drove Mike Fischers red Karmann Ghia to a top speed of 190 MILES PER HOUR..."

First question...how do you build a 3 liter VW engine?

Second question...is that a Corvair in the background?

I don't think so because it looks like it has a grill????

A and C pillars look vairy familiar.

But the point of the post is 190 mph.

Seems that racecar ran 180 on pavement previously.

There is no comparison between salt and pavement.

Everything being equal you go faster on solid surface.

When I was there in 2006 (as a spectator) there was a Turbo Porsche running with a huge wing. He was making runs over 230 mph. Apparently on his 'last' run the car became unstable going out the back door and he totaled the car.
The current record in F BGMS is 220 mph set by Kahler's Porsche Service in 1988.

They must have done a lot of business with Pauter Machine.
Pauter machines entire blocks that are easily big enough to build
a 3 liter 4.

Pauter would be the one to make Corvair Cylinder heads if someone had the money to spend

"If" the #3461 Karmann Gia is naturally asperated

And I'm thinking it is...that is an over the top WOW.

There would be a B for blown in the class designator.

If turbocharged or belt driven boost is being used.

According to 36'er Challenge Faeebook page.

2900cc naturally asperated running on alcohol.

But that doesn't jive with EMS on the racecar.

I have pictures on my computer at home of the 4.25" bore Pauter cylinders from a Pauter "big block" that a friend was building. The heads had enormous ports too; think big block Chevrolet sized.

These are the ones. Everything was large on that engine. Basically they supersized the air cooled VW engines plus added better oiling system, more studs around the cylinders, etc

No prices on those parts on their website.

If you have to ask...you cannot afford them.

Wanna go fast you better write the big check.
