Motor and Drivetrain / Engine Sound on a Spintron
« Last post by fabr on April 13, 2018, 08:18:21 PM »
Ever wonder what you are really hearing ? A lot of the sound is the engine itself.  Here is a vid of an engine on a spintron. The engine is not running. It is being spun,logged and laser videoed @ 18000 rpm though.

Most of their use is in the UK since bike engine cars are very popular track cars there. That's what they are made for. Off road-nope. I do not know of any inline reversers that will take the pounding off road does to them. I do know of how to do an inline reverser that will though but there is no market for them especially now that SxS's have taken over.

It takes about a minute to pull full vacumn. Might take Several minutes to fully fill system. Follow the directions advice on putting your fill bucket as high as possible and it goes quicker. I pull a vacumn and let it sit for a few minutes before filling. If there is any loss of vacumn,there is a leak needing fixed first.

 I guarantee you won't ever have buyers remorse. Just hang the thing with the hose hanging down for a couple days so the hose straightens out before using. I store mine like that.
