Hey Gothicteo is that just a single cam 8 valve 2.3 or 16 valve motor ? and a 5speed of course , I had a 190e 1985 5spd sold it cheap .

It is a 8v engine because the 16v engins are to expensiv.... We are on a tight budget.... We have to sell the car after the race for 850usd if soeone wants it....

Its realy hard to build a competetiv car under 1000usd....  the black one is 15000usd in just buildingcost.... so i use ever litel tip and part i can use to ceep the cost down

4 or 5 speed gearbox is irelevant becaus we only use gear 1-3..... The track is designed to keep speed under 80kph (50mph?)

I guess you can't beat up those motorcycle carbs in the wash boards of the race track ! , I have seen off road cars with Ford 2.3 motors here with Mikuni carbs for the same reason , I still have a 2.3 MB motor here and an automatic trans on it ,I need to sell it.
