Upping the Ante – JFC Racing Dials in v8 Power for Its Wolf Chassis at the 25 Hours of Thunderhill

JFC Racing has been bringing its Wolf chassis to Thunderhill for a couple of years now, and it’s usually one of the fastest ESR cars on the track. Last year the car was equipped with a Honda K20 engine, which was good for 240 horsepower and a fast lap of 1:41.819. But the engine didn’t make it through the night after spiking oil pressures necessitated an engine swap.
For 2016, JFC Racing upped the ante by fitting the car with a Hartley V8. At 2.8 liters, the Hartley V8 dyno-tested at 430 horsepower with “conservative” camshafts. Splayed at 90 degrees, the Hartley V8 block is machined from one piece of billet and topped with cylinder heads from a 1340 cc Suzuki Hayabusa motorcycle engine.
