 IMPALA SS STARTS THE SEASON AT SOUTH GEORGIA MORTORSPORTS PARK

The twin-turbo Impala SS made it's way to South Georgia Motorsports Park in late February to compete against the fastest radial cars on the planet.  Hoping for a top 10 finish among a very strong field and a packed house, the custom Baker engine turned out to be more than the small tires could handle.  The car, however, was a big draw.  Click the headline for more photos, thanks to Dragzine.  Watch for a story in Dragzine!

DEVELOPMENT ENGINE DEMO

BEI’s proprietary 24 cu.in. Opposed-Piston Turbo Diesel Engine/APU has successfully demonstrated cold start, low idle, high idle and incremental loads nearing the target power output.  See it run at http://youtu.be/WJvEYzIgGYI. With a target of 20kW output, this technology has widespread potential due to its small size, flexible footprint, power-to-weight ratio, low part count, and fuel efficiency.  The single cylinder engine also provides a low compression ratio with low heat rejection, variable boost, high speed, good cold starting and multi-fuel capabilities.  The Opposed-Piston Turbo Diesel Engine is based on traditional design coupled with advanced engine health management strategies.  Operating on the two-stroke cycle, the inwardly-opposed-piston engine offers reliability and efficiency of a breathe-easy piston port design.
