Bloodhound LFB golf to Rotary

Post by Bugger » Mon Jan 23, 2017 9:44 am

This Beetle was at 2014 Desert Speedweek Hakskeen pan and did a GPS 215Km/h and I missed the Traps as the track was turned around and I did not understuud the marchals inital instructions
Bu then the run straight After that I managed to do a official 206Km/h with a Warm motor and intercooler

It was a serious challange to do this Speed 215Km/h in a Beetle but then on Sand it was even hiher risk as the Track
was Quite ridden out by the time we arrived at Speedweek

I had a 2L 8Valve Turbo Charged Golf Motor in Bloedhond that made a around 145Kw on the Wheels at the time
Gearbox is one of my Bugger Stage 4 Transmissions with chrome molly main shaft with longer 1st and 2nd gears
as well as Coarse 3de and 4th with a super long 4th gear Ratio of 0.82 where standard is 0.93 and my first longer ratio
I normally do have a 0.88 in same as Tony Z stage 4 Box then welded 3de and 4th gear hube
Super diff housin with 4 spider gears and both sides of the Box have HD ally Side covers
steel Selector Forks and Special Imported Syncro rings on 2nd 3de and 4th

With that I also used a set of Chrome Molly Side shafts to handel the Power

I have had engine Failure when the Guys were tunning the motor for some more power on the Dyno and removed the Golf motor and started with the 13B rotary Turbo conversion with a Charge cooler system and Bridge ported and hybrid small turbo to bring power in at low rpm

One of the Reasons I have gone to the Rotary route is the 9000-11000 RMP of the Rotary and seeing this bug is built specifically fot Speedweek on the Hakskeen Pan and All Tar
aswell as to do the 800 and 1Km challanges at ODI the aditional RPM i will be having will only help with top speed
My aim is to try and break a 250Km/h speed with the new Bloodhound LFB project and that will be my challange

Will post pics

These are a few pics of Bloodhond with the Golf turbo

You will see the heading is called

Bloodhound LFB.

The bug have been renamed after
Bloodhound SSC ( super sonic car)

Now you ask why change the name to Bloodhound LFB

LFB stand for Low Flying Beetle.

What is life without humor
