37 Fiat Topolino Bob test drive
Bob Rizzoli's 37 Fiat Topolino street rod...BPMS 406 Rodeck w/Kinsler 8 stack IR intake......Special Thanks to "Earl Miller" of Kinsler Fuel Injection who guided us through the very complex setup of FAST EFI and the first to provide us with a "super" base calibration fuel map for our IR 8 stack ........We are sorting out some small issuses....headlights,brake and tag lights ......are plan is to attend Ocean City MD. in the spring for their car show/cruise weekend. In the mean time we have been dialing in the four link and data logging in an attemp to minamize our O2 fuel corrections. The BPMS 406 runs very well.....lots of power for a 1600 lbs street rod. Thanks to "Earl Miller" of Kinsler this motor idles at 900 rpm w/great throttle response ! Working w/this EFI 8 stack off and on in the past ten years I finally had to agree with info I read on the internet.....That this combination was never going to be a streetable induction system .....not IR designs at any rate......Don't belive everything you read or hear ! This pile of parts works ....So glad I didn't give in to the Holley folks !

Mark Mackay A/MA modified altered Topolino footage from 2008
This is footage of Mark Mackay racing his A/MA modified altered Topolino from season 2008 at the Perth Motorplex. The car is a consistent favourite with the crowd, and was previously owned by Steve "Bushdog" McGrath who now races a similar beast in the Supercharged Outlaws bracket.
Mackay has proved the Topolino is a winner, and was very successful in it after the purchase from McGrath. It has been a great learning car for him to experience what the power of what drag racing is all about.
