So... anybody know of any SCTA (or for that matter ECTA or LTA) records held by 2-stroke powered 4-wheelers in any class whatsoever? Any qualification attempts by such a machine?

Someone must have run a Saab 93 or early 96 with the 3 cyl two stroke. Was Bertil's a 3 cyl?

Definitely have seen a Saab or two at Wilmington (ECTA). Don't know the car/driver specifically so can't find the record though.

Years ago thete were some Go Kart powered streamliners that ran. I think the Ballpoint Banana may have been two stroke.

I remember a car -- liner, I think, maybe a lakester -- running a snowmobile two stroke at the salt.

What was the power of the little front drive, rear steer (later lakester) from about 20 years ago? I sort of remember it being started with a pull cord like your average chain saw/lawnmower. Had some handling issues so don't know if made a full pass in that configuration.

I think the "Ballpoint Banana" K streamliner ran a 4 cyl Evenrude outboard 2 stroke

Arnold's Ballpoint Banana was a 2 Stroke Evinrude
The rear steer Liner had two 2 stroke motors
2 strokes were not handicapped as far as I can remember.... but then again, they were only allowed in special construction and motorcycles until sometime in the 90's.  That is when the SCTA decided that non-automobile (motorcycle motors) could be used in other than special construction.

an old posts from 2008 about some 2 stroke streamliner cars:

"".... the car you mean is the first streamliner which Tom Burkland built.

A while he runs with a yellow as base color, on the bottom was two orange strip and the top something like purple.The number was 41 and runs in K/GS class - later Zimmermann used the car and changed the base color into red with a checkered flag on and a splashed Duck on the nose, was sponsored by Jaz  ..."ie Jaz Production Special"

In George D. Lepp book "Bonneville Salt Flats" from 1988 is a good picture from the Snoopy version - you can find this book is in the most library."""


This Burkdoll car holds currently the K/GS record. This car was destroyed when Bo Burkdoll rolled the car during the World of Speed in September 2004.

"""...........- the car he asked was the Tom/Gene Burkland built streamliner - Mays runs them originally and set a record in J/GS - before this streamliner runs in K/GS - and as I remember he ownes this record in K/GS too, before it was broken by the the Burkdoll Family. When the car runs in K/GS he used a 443 cc snowmobil engine and had this famous Snoopy Airplane window paintshop on.
Later Zimmermann used the car and run a K/BGS engine for a record which is still in the record list.

The records this streamliner set are - in J/GS 215 mph - in K/BGS 201.7 mph.

The Burkdoll record in K/GS is 202 mph. """

I think Jim Burkdoll set the K/GS in the little bluebird streamliner not the streamliner that was destroyed, if I remember right. The little streamliner that Burklands build for Nick was was the proof of concept car for their big 450MPH streamliner. Good data Joe

I was wondering when a 2-stroke Saab would find its way into LSR. What about the DKW?
