2013 World Record - 138.219 MPH
May 18, 2013
El Mirage, California - Jim Robinson set a new World Record at El Mirage Dry Lake on May 18, 2013 using gasoline on an Indian Chief of 138.219 MPH.

He was using Bob Nichols aluminum connecting rods along with cams and lifters. This record was established about 1949, 1950 by Max Breback, however, he had one advantage that we did not have that is four cams in place of two cams.

Bob Nichols aluminum rods allowed his RPM to be increased from 4800 RPM to 7700 RPM, and of course our two cam design was even better than the original four cam design which was 63 years ago.
