Engine builders: Ryan Smith & Dixon Smith

Dixon Smith - Racing RR Merlin expert & lead engine builder

The engine overhaul is documented by engine and component sub-galleries. Two engines will be built (with different gearbox ratios). Dixon Smith is leading the engine efforts, as he was one of the original engine builders with Bardahl, Pay 'n Pak, and many other successful Merlin hydroplane teams. He has advanced technology and supported air racing teams with Merlin engine development. Dixon & Dwight Thorn are arguable the two leading experts on modifying a RR Merlin for high performance racing.

Once in the gallery, it is possible to move between sections without returning to the engine overhaul main page.
