1969NovaSS answered my question correctly and asked this...
"Im running out of questions so this may be easy but its interesting. What is considered the fastest street legal car? Hint: it is not a modern production car."

THAT is the question to answer. We don't want to do to him what we did to Richard Steward 3rd.

Brian - I was just trying to make amends for my decade off foot-in-mouth response to you. If that's wrong, I'll just go sit in the corner and sulk then

Sorry Dave, I gave up trying to make a mends for my foot in mouth comments, it would take too much time.

I just didn't want to step on 1969Nova's turn.

Now Nova, I will bet Dinger has it right.

Hi,
The question about the WFC was answered correctly, are we waiting for another question or do we answer Dave Ws question about water pumps & flat heads?

Richard, because one person answered it incorrectly, doesn't mean we move on. We leave it for others to try. And honestly, we don't know if it is incorrect! Only 1969Nova knows!

Hi Brian,
I'll get this game right eventually. The reason I said that the Aero was correct, is because it's listed in the Ginnus book as
such?

I guess it's me.

A top fuel dragster is staged, having done it's burnout. The light turns green, it runs the full 1/4 mile.How many revolutions (approx) has the engine turned in this race? Not the burnout or anythinf else, just the race.

That blew me away Dan, of course after thinking about it, four second run, it makes sense but I never thought about it before and it is amazing.

Ok, the 1953 Corvette used a side draft carburator. What other two American production cars used it? I have to say answer both because one is just two easy. I'm not asking what cars used a sidedraft, I am asking for the two cars that used THESE exact make and model carbs.

Bonus, what other non automotive use did this carb see a LOT of?

Brian

Hi Brian, & 69 Nova,
I'm having a hard time with the bonus part, I'm thinking maybe aircraft?

So for the bonus, my guess is on some airplane engines.

The Carter model YH was also used on:
Nash Ambassador Six
and Corvair Corsa Turbo and Spyder.

I'm going to give it to you Joe, but I am not sure that info is entirely correct. The only Nash I know that used it was the Nash Healey because of the low hood line. The Corvair, ONLY the Turbo models.

And yes, marine is the bonus. Again, for low "hood" lines.

Your Floor Joe,

Brian

Nova, I don't think any Willys used them, I think they used an UP draft carb.
