Z Car Racing Team - Switzerland

Here is some more info on the car I posted yesterday.
295ps converts to 290hp.

Not bad for a 2800cc motor (L28).

I wanna know how they got it revving to 9800 rpm!!! That is unbelievable for an L-series motor.

Looks like the swiss know something I don't! (not surprised)

  1. I'm thinking expensive spring/valves/retainers/etc. Those 10,000RPM springs from Kameari might do the trick

  2. Wow. I find something new to buy everyday and today is no exception.

    Thanks for the tip!

  3. 9,800RPM sounds nice, but personally I'm more interested in how they got it to handle so nicely. I mean, Konis and Nismo ARBs are not enough to make it stick as it does. I'm wondering what kind of geometry it runs.

  4. Mmm Kameari.. not exactly the cheapest brand around. But some of those crazy japs make in excess of 300bhp with those parts. I guess it's all down to cam & headwork. And matching all parts perfectly together, down to the length of the intake runners etc etc. And a little bit of magic too.

  5. That's crazy I had heard an L28 crank can only withstand 8500 rpms

  6. Gotta be some crazy voodoo balancing going on.

  8. 0-100 mph in 4 secs , that must be a mistake !
