Motor Specs

Motor Updated November 2012, Upgraded Mid 2014

2012 proved to be an unqualified success, setting 2 records, one that may never be topped, except that we do not feel the ‘Bad Bird’ ran to our M2 Team expectations. It became imperative in the second half of the year that we upgrade our motor program to get us to the next level of Land Speed Racing. This special race car received it’s radically upgraded motor this past week
Additionally, new “Aero” features have been added to the body of the car, unnoticeable to even the trained professional eye


Floyd Cochran Racing Enhancements, Fallon, Nevada, performed his miracles on the Yates C3 Heads, using his professional skills, flow bench, and 'Clean Room'. Flows increased significantly on the exhaust side, and on the intake, while increasing velocity. With his ‘Clean Room’, an absolute must in this age of high horsepower motor building, gaining perhaps an additional 100 HP at the rear wheels 

Floyd then turned the motor over to the capable hands of Mike Hughes, owner of Hughes Machine in Fallon, Nevada. This newly upgraded package, including upgrading the Jesel valve train components, new Clevite Bearings, Total Seal Piston Rings, and the build items shown below that were already installed in the motor, will take us to another level not seen in this car in its long history of Land Speed Racing
