Those big aircraft V-12's and V-16's weren't built for High rpm.

Jim Lytle ran an Allison V-12 in a seriously chopped top '34 Ford Sedan called "Big Al" back in the mid 1960's....didn't turn much rpm there either. https://www.google.com/url?sa=i&rct=...95171223856911

Edit: after some looking online, I believe the plane was named "Dago Red" and not Red Baron
Probably was . Red Baron Pizza sponsored four Stearman Bi-planes.
