    Ive a local contact who is involved in racing cars, usually oddball stuff for the Lemons (not LeMans) class. I mentioned my Guzzi project to her and she sent me these two links to videos of the Fiat600/Guzzi "FiaGuzzi" racer her team built using a round-fin engine.





    Pretty cool!

    cheers,
    Michael

    I was going to ask about cooling after watching the first video. Then I saw the huge furnace duct work on the roof in the second video. Still an issue apparently.
    Very interesting.

    Take an air cooled engine, shoehorn it into a confined space in the back of an old Fiat, and be “surprised” that it overheated.

    :D :wasntme:

    I feel sorry for that lovely engine. What an undignified ending to a beautiful thing…

    Here's a different style of engine mounting in a FiaGuzzi racer.
