Thank you gentleman for the kind words. I just wanted to throw out there that I am doing a preseason special on all motors for $50. You will receive the $80 full race port work for $50 on any engine you send in. Just make sure its fairly new and doesn't have 4-5 gallons already on it. I prefer new or next to new just so we both know it has alot of life left in it. I hate putting my name on worn out abused motors and in fact I have refused work several times because of it. I only give you guys the best I can so I would hope you send me the motor in the best shape you can. Take it easy gentleman!!

Well here is a few pics of a Jammin JPX 21 sleeve I just did....... 100% os this workis done by hand using the files in the pictures........ Of course the rough surface is deliberate, i sometimes will polish a sleeve for pictures. but i am lazy today.... so i will just leave it with a brushed finish

so, what would happen if i cut a small amount of the sleeve out, so that part of the intake is higher than the exhaust to make use of forced induction? then the exhaust port would be closed, and there would be nowhere for the pressure to go, resulting in a supercharged engine that works?

i have a kyosho GX-12 that i bought as a spare but doesn't fit my firestorm, and i would be interested in running it on a bench to try it out...

Nice stuff Maximo ! Thats hard to do with a jewelers file !

heres a couple of pics of my work , i know i have polished them up for the pics but i have a different theory on the size of the grain needed to help fuel flow and reducing windage ...

Thanks for compliment !..... I hope Budz can hang onto this mill. I think its going to be a real handfull in a Buggy even for an expert driver... I told him this mill will be better suited to a truggy, as these Picco's got such a crazy bottom end on em...But in a buggy she's going LOL !
