Charlie Toy is a long time Bonneville racer originally from Nebraska who now lives in Arizona. Charlie raced a Kawasaki Z900 air-cooled roller bearing engine with a Rajay turbo. The system had a carb on the intake side and sucked the mixture through the turbo, then into the engine. Charlie set records of just over 200 with this set-up. He then designed and built his "Toy" bodywork. The same combo immediately set records in the 227 range with a best of about 239. It works. This was long before the Busa, electronics, or even radial tires.
