Chaparral 2J @ 2005 Monterey Historics
Demonstration laps of the Chaparral 2J driven by Vic Elford during the 2005
Monterey Historics at Laguna Seca. The 2J had two fans at the rear driven
by a snowmobile engine to evacuate air from beneath the car, sucking the
car to the road. In the video you can hear the snowmobile engine over the
bass note of the Chevy V8. Phil Hill & Jim Hall are driving two of the
Top 5 Race Cars We Liked As A Kid - /SHAKEDOWN

for his favorite car, Leo Parente and ShakeDown team up with Mike Spinelli
to rip through a list of the Top 5 race cars that made a forever impression
on them. ShakeDown was created by Mike and Leo, so you get to hear their
lists first. YOU'RE next! - In the comments below. What were your Top 5
Race Cars you liked as a kid?

Jay Leno's Tank Car!!
This is when I saw Jay Leno in his "Tank Car" at Supercar Sunday in
Chaparral 2J Start
Raw avi to get the best quality for you. Firing the "big" engine on the
1970 Chaparral Chevy 2J at Goodwood 2011, a 7.6litre big-bloke "moose
motor". You get a couple of short blasts of the "small" 2-cyl 2-stroke
snowmobile engine, but this had a fuel pump problem and needed a quick
re-build before it would run without fuel being poured direct into the
inlets. Watch the "Ferrari 312PB start" clip to get the full effect of this
engine once it was running, 2-cyls easily drowning out 12, at least a BRM
V16 is worth the pain..... I am sure this is why the other Can-Am teams had
this amazing car banned, not only was the 2J competitive but it gave the
other race teams a headache and stopped them spending time in the paddock
working on their own cars.
