Difference in the Whelen and the SK's?


I have a the Whelen mod and the SK mod, and the models of both look the same to me. The only difference to the eye is that the Whelen mod has paints.

Can anyone tell me the difference in the two?

In real life, the SK's run a 2-barrel carb and are limited to 350 cubic inches (I believe).

The Whelen (Tour) Modifieds can run a big-block, with a 4-barrel, and are limited to 368 cubic inches.

Basically, the Whelen Mods have more horsepower than the SK's, but look very similar.

You are close, but a little off.

SK's run a wet-sump engine with cast iron heads, and a 500 CFM 2 BBL carb. That is the main difference, along with a lot of cost saving rules as well (larger clutch, shock rules, etc). Most SK engines are 0.030 overbore which usually leads to displacement of 355 CID.

WMT Tour type mods run dry sump, 18 degree aluminum heads with a high rise intake, and a 390 CFM 4 BBL carb. They are not big block engines. They can run a small clutch, and are allowed to run more expensive parts.

There are other tour type modified series (such as the MRS) that are more lenient with their engine rules. They can run steel head 23 degree engines as well as other combinations
