The 103" (1684CC) engine is designed and built by Zodiac's founder Ton Pels along with his son and Zodiac's general manager Vincent Pels (T&V Racing). The engine is fed by the latest type supercharger from the Swedish company J&M Performance, the Autorotor 2.1 RC. The complete engine is machined by T&V racing out of many kilos of solid steel, billet 7075-T6 aluminum and titanium. Like the crank, crank cases, con rods, cylinders, blower drive, complete primary, slider clutch and many other parts. The "Trick" chassis, with a 100 Inch wheel base, was also made in house from 4130 chrome moly tubing. For the new Composite Body the team went to Swecomposite and the special aerodynamic windscreen was made by National Cycle. The front fork was designed and built by GCB, while Hyperpro did the finishing on the road holding. The new engine has a bore of 4.25" (107,95mm) and stroke of 3.625" (92mm), and has a fuel consumption of over 12 Gallons per minute (almost 1 liter per second!), it takes some fuel to produce more than 1000 Horsepower! To get rid of the heat better, Ton & Vincent made complete billet copper alloy combustion chambers, so called "Skulls", in the heads. New materials were sourced for the exhaust valves and guides, and the production of these valve components was realized by their sponsor Kibblewhite Precision Machining. On top of that, a special exhaust system was developed with the help of SuperTrapp, to let the hot gasses escape the head a lot quicker and in 2014 S&S Cycle has joint the Zodiac Racing Team with their valuable knowledge and support. The T&V Race-team likes to express their thanks to our most important sponsor: Zodiac International B.V. as well as our other sponsors Spectro Oils of America, SuperTrapp Industries, S&S Cycle and Kibblewhite Precision Machining for their support. Without them we couldn't have done it.
