I make sure to refrence that in my paper.
Actually ford made a motor to combat the hemi...it was a dual overhead cam motor if Im correct. But nascar axed it before it became reality.

Wow. You'd think we'd like to see that numbers get lower.. oh well, leave it to the Japanese to do the aerodynamics

There is some bad information About the Dominance of the Hemi engine out there, first off in 1964 the ford 427 high riser won 36 races the hemi won Daytona! at the end of the year the speeds were to a point were they were unsafe!
because of the 427 ford 's dominance it was Ban from NASCAR the 426 hemi was not a production engine but a special built Race engine, because it was not a street production engine it was ban as well! Chrysler boycotted NASCAR so there engine was given back to them! Ford kept racing they just built a different engine the 427 SOCH but it was ban before it even raced one race. by 1969 the Ford Boss 429 was making enough power that even Richard Petty switched to Ford! Dodge Came out with the wing cars that were fast, Ford Got Screwed again when there winged cars were ban again before they even were raced! If NASCAR was going to allow wing Cars they should have let every body use them or no body.

Thank you so much for your contribution! I'm sure this was just in time to add to his paper before he turned it in...a decade ago.
