This is a machine that makes me just shake my head. A Gran Prix race car with a chain drive. Slow lumbering dump trucks, fine, but the 1908 French Gran Prix winner averaged 69.045 mph (111.117 km/h) for 478 miles (770 km)and the fastest lap was over 78 mph (126 km/h).
They also had the first Gran Prix fatality that year.

Sweet ride. She must have been a handful at high speed.

775 cubic inches of displacement, making 100 horsepower...Not exactly the acme of efficiency.

The compression must have been about 2 to 1, 3 tops. That's cool, you could have a 9 year old crank it for you.

I may have overstated my temerity's degree of mitigation.

I need a gal like that in my life. Forward thinking, progressive, trend-setter.

Heh, nothing good.

Unless you're an observer, then, it's gold!

Hopefully, it fails to a freewheel mode, with the brake still functional. And hopefully, part of those hand controls are brakes.

Nope, just two throttles so probably no freewheeling.

I do believe the ProMod painters have cornered the LSD market.
