    Do you think the F1 OMC v8 of your day could compete with todays F1 Merc?

    I don't know..the circuit is different today with shorter straight a ways with left and right turns. A lighter V6 engine with maybe less power is easier to handle on that type of race course.

    Well..but if you take an F1-V8 boat to a place like Idroscalo the way we run back then..two point race course with close to a mile straight a way..both directions.. I am pretty sure the old style F1-V8 is way faster.

    One interesting point..on my own racing web site http://svera.se/blogg/f1-v8/forst-till-bojen/ I did this story last year..

    UIM F1 goes V8 four stroke..??.. Check this engine.

    http://svera.se/blogg/uim-f1-goes-v8...k-this-engine/

    This story is by far the most read..over 10,000 hits in a few days.

    Many Merc fans said.. finally we also have a V8..but no..it was not made by Merc.

    I do not want to take anything away from the today's UIM F1..the series is doing very good. You can watch live etc.
    I just wish we can get one or two races in the USA every year.

    Lars I have read all of your stuff. I remember when gillman ran that v8 in free practice. Didn't look bad. When I see these 4 stroke engines and they say light weight. I think of valves, valve spring, cams, cam gears, belts, oil sump, oil I could go on. I think light weight? Compared to what? It would be cool to see a OMC V8 on the back of a BABA or DAC.

    Just look at the torque curve and you see the will need 10 speed gearbox to race a 2 stroke or twice the capacity
