Nerd’s Eye View: Ferguson & Macmillan Racing K-Liner


Just for shits and giggles, this is the dyno plot of Project S2000 on the same dyno at Church’s. Yes, the K-Liner with slightly less displacement makes almost five times the power! Using some basic math (1200hp / ((48psi/14.7psi)+1)), the K-Liner would make about 281hp naturally aspirated. That’s about 140.5hp/L naturally aspirated which goes to show just how potent the build of this engine is. Keep in mind a Ferrari 458 Speciale only does 133hp/L. Hmm… I can fit a K-Liner engine in Project S2000…
Supporting the front end of the K-Liner is a pair of coilovers nestled in the narrow frame. You can also see the steering linkage.
In between the two coilovers is a shock pot (potentiometer) to keep tabs on suspension travel during a run. I get the feeling that bottoming out the suspension at a few hundred miles per hour is a bad thing.
The rear suspension also utilizes a pair of coilovers with a shock pot in the middle.
Goodyear Eagle skinny tires and disc wheel covers are standard issue in land speed racing.
