    Hi, I'm thinking of getting into 1/8 on road. I noticed you are a 1/8 racer. Where do you practice and race.
    I live north of Philadelphia.
    Thanks,
    Philip Rode

    The .32mm clearance is too low, I do not know what OS is using but most brands use 0.50 up to 0.7. The torque comes from the low clearance but it will also result in a fast damaged rod because the combustion is too soon, Probably you will not reach a high level of RPM.
    Also if you do not know the timings of all ports you cannot reproduce a same engine.

    It is a compromise making the performance. The length of the manifold is just determing on which RPM is the peak of the powerband with which you can/must optimise the gearing.
    You can use a high gear ratio and a short manifold. The motor will speed up the RPM faster but due the high ratio the acceleration will be the same. High RPM is giving more horsepower but also more consumption.
    The long manifold will give more torque which can handle a lower gear ratio. Running a 2-speed gives more advantage.
    With a short manifold I was running 16/19 on my Mugen MRX with standard 49/46. With the longest manifold I am now running 16/20 with 49/46. Without changing the 1st gear ratio but giving the motor more torque it will accelerate much quicker but it will give you more room to play the gearbox shift moment while with the short manifold you must reach some higher RPM so the car will not slow down when shifting to the 2nd gear. Just get all manifolds and play to find out what is best for you.

    Can you send pics of the car? Would you consider to sell it ready to run without receiver and transponder?
    Please text me @540-220-4395. I was looking to get something for this weekend. But i don't think that will happen. Thanks Dave

    I called you last night because I think you should know a few things. I bought the software without the board even knowing about it. I agree that we need better software. They did not want to pay for anything that I buy. They want to buy everything for the club. New computer, software, PA system - everything. They want the club to be independent from me and Richie. I want the club to save all the money for when we need it to build a new track. I demanded last night that the members vote on what we do with our money. Only members can vote - 35 people. Corrado, Diatta, Torres - those guys are not members and can't vote. We have $1,806 in the bank. I bought VHT, Methanol, porta potty, new clip boards on the drivers stand and last night we authorized a good blower. Give me a call 917 468 0615. The porta potty people are delivering the unit this morning. I have to call Richie when they are 1/2 hour away from the delivery so he can meet them to show where to put the unit.
