Race to 400mph - DYNO Test
Sam Wheeler of Arcadia California, is preparing to break the motorcycle
land speed record with a run of 400 MPH plus at Bonneville Salt Flats Utah
this summer with his PARTS UNLIMITED/EZ HOOK streamliner.
With the PARTS UNLIMITED sponsorship Sam has totally revamped the power
plant and transmission on his liner. The streamliner is now powered by a
Suzuki Hayabusa 1300cc engine built by Vance & Hines.
The 20013 Bonneville Salt Flats season saw very wet salt conditions, and no
record runs were attempted.
With Bonneville testing out of the question, in September 2013, Sam brought
his streamliner to the Vance & Hines Dyno facility in Santa Fe
Springs CA for testing of the engine and the new drive system. This video
gives us a look at that session.
