Designed by Chuk Williams, the Cyclone steam-powered land speed racer measures 21 feet long, 30 inches high (not including fin), and 30 inches wide, with a drag coefficient less than 0.2. The body is constructed of fiberglass composite and the frame is made from tubular steel. Both the front and rear suspension feature coilover springs with 1-inch of travel
(1/2 inch up and 1/2 inch down). It'll run 21x5R15 Goodyear Eagle Land Speed tires. Since fuel delivery to the circling combustion chamber (the red round piece located on top of the engine) is automatically regulated, the driver opens a valve that controls the flow of steam to the piston engine to increase power to the wheels. Since this is a steam engine, no radiator, transmission, or clutch is required—the wheels are directly connected to the crankshaft with a 90-degree gearbox and a belt.
