I don't know too much about it except it's the standard 1915cc 110hp offering from VMC - twin 40mm Kadrons, Magnaspark ignition. I'm going to ask VMC if they have a more detailed breakdown.

When you talk to them can you ask what camshaft is in it and it's specs?  You want to know the duration, duration @ .050" and lift at the cam.  Thanks in advance-  Al

@ALB I'll ask and report back!
@IaM-Ray I live in SF so Hwy 1 isn't far away. We also have a 79 VW Bus and did a camping trip from Santa Monica to Petaluma. Went all the way North on the 1 - it was stunning, but took a really long time!
@MusbJim @Michael Pickett Thanks for the welcomes!

Took a really long time... sure it is slow and the view is so intoxicating that you have to drive slow or you'll be off the cliff especially in the northern parts

Al, I think it's YOU who wants to know all that stuff.

It sounds to me like Matthew just wants to drive the thing.

What I find amazing is that his son wants to be seen being dropped off at school by his dad. The Speedster is a truly transformative vehicle.

Party on, Matthew.

I have it in the correct spot now so I actually see it. Before it was Left front axle



The point I’m trying to make is I think everybody should be careful when they buy a replica that they don’t take shortcuts. Who would ever think that their brake fluid reservoir would be in a spot that you could never see.

Only in Arizona which is the newest state and that’s why we don’t know these things very well

Congrats on a great looking Speedster Matt. Hope you’re out there and enjoying driving her. Can I ask if you’re finding the standard 1914cc engine powerful enough with 110hp?

Ha, "powerful enough" for what? I think a car can always be more powerful for some reason, like your TV can never be too big

I'm never going to take her out on the track, and being so low to the ground with very little around you, even 60mph feels terrifyingly fast to me. So is it powerful enough for me? Yes! Would it be more fun with more power? Yes!
