Christian Major 300bhp Escort RS Turbo Top Speed Run. 1600cc CVH
A *friend* of mine had a 300bhp RS turbo a few years ago. It went rather well. Ignore the rev counter on the dash, accurate digital RPM can be seen on the Boost controller. Yes it did light the wheels at 70mph in third, in the dry and it does indeed go off the end of the speedo in fourth.
Ford Escort RS Turbo vs Mitsubishi Evo 7 - Performance Ford Top Speed Thrash
Please read description for full details. Watch in HD!
This video was previously uploaded by several accounts, but it is my video.
It is me driving, so I can tell you all about the car.
It's NOT an Escort Cosworth or Sierra Cosworth as some have suggested.
There is a picture of it at the end of the video.
This video was taken at the Annual Performance Ford Top Speed Thrash
several years ago and was relatively unplanned. It wasn't a 'staged' race.
Furthermore, there is no suggestion my me that the Escort is better than
the Evo. This video demonstrates the raw power of the Escort. Reeling the
Evo in from such a poor start shows just how powerful this car was. It was
built ONLY for Top Speed, hence the poor initial start.
The Evo belongs to Gary of AP Tuning in Norwich and at the time of the
video was around 450bhp.
The Escort is a 1989 RS turbo Series 2
(Mk4 Escort Shape). It has a 1600cc CVH engine, the original Block that it
rolled out of the factory with. The original completely standard crank is
still there too. The car also ran a standard Ford Head Gasket. It was on
modern Fuel Injection and highly tuned with a large turbo. Of course the gearbox was modified too,
many people have quizzed me over the years about gear ratios and I never
disclosed my secrets!
To clarify, this car NEVER ran a Dump Valve (or BOV). The noise you hear on
gear-changes is the natural Wastegate 'Chatter'. Please note the
gear-change just as the speedo goes off the scale!
The car always ran on standard pump fuel (usually Shell V-Power), but for
Top Speed runs I usually added a bottle of NF Octane Booster for safety.
The car was uncontested as the Top Speed record holder for many years, but
after a lot of stress and sleepless nights eventually got stripped for

O Ford Escort foi um automóvel criado pela secção da Ford Motor Company
A geração MK1 foi produzida de 1968 a 1974, na Europa, com carroçaria
arredondada remetendo ao estilo da época. Tinha tração traseira e estava
equipado com motores 1.1 e 1.3. Em 1969 surgiu a versão RS 1600, que
produzia 120 cv. Em 1973 surgiu a versão RS 2000 com 100 cv, motor pinto
The Mark I Ford Escort was introduced in the United Kingdom at the end of
1967, making its show debut at Brussels Motor Show in January 1968. It
replaced the successful long running Anglia. The car was presented in
continental Europe as a product of Ford's European operation. Escort
production commenced at Halewood in England during the closing months of
1967, and for left hand drive markets during September 1968 at the Ford
plant in Genk. Initially the continental Escorts differed slightly from
the UK built ones under the skin. The front suspension and steering gear
were differently configured and the brakes were fitted with dual hydraulic
circuits; also the wheels fitted on the Genk-built Escorts had wider
rims. At the beginning of 1970, continental European production
transferred to a new plant on the edge of Saarlouis, West Germany.
The 2.0 L RS2000 version, with its distinctively slanted polyurethane nose,
and featuring the Pinto engine from the Cortina, was announced in the UK in
March 1975 and introduced in Germany in August 1975, being reportedly
produced in both countries. It provided a claimed 110 bhp and a top speed
of 110 mph (177 km/h). For acceleration to 100 km/h (62.5 mph) a time of
just 8.9 seconds was claimed by the manufacturers.
