This is a comprehensive history of modifications to the Rolls Royce / Packard Merlin for boat racing and airplane racing. The topics include internal modifications such as quill shafts, crankshafts and cam shafts. Also included is a discussion of Nitrous Oxide, ADI (Water methanol) injection and Nitro Methane. There will be actual Merlin parts to examine. The presentation will be technical in nature, but also will be of interest to the average Vintage Unlimited fan. The presentation will include a power point presentation.
