Hey Maximo, I know you do engine mods, and sell em. Do you think that video might hurt your business? People might think twice before sending you a motor to mod, after seeing what you do to them.

No, you need to come race with some of the guys I race with. They put the car or truck through the ringer and it keeps going and mine breaks for no reason. I guess I don't drive it hard enough.

Dude! if that was the case no engine modder would be in biss. how do you think testing is done? by pushing it's limits, and seeing what fails. You should see how bad Ed beats engines on the dyno.. oh man so much fun.. hehehe

i would prefer the modder to beat the piss out of a test motor to see if it holds up... just as long as they do not do it to mine

So considering I would have to wait till April/May to be able to run again It was well worth the risk to my tight motor....................... Also I had fun with my buddies, which honestly matters more to me then saving a precious race engine for next years season...Friends and fun are priceless, and when its -60 F in January I will enjoy watching the video I shot yesterday....



I should add as a disclaimer that this engine has gone thru a proper bench break in with a load prop, it has been heat cycled and I am running a high oil break in fuel 16 % oil ....it is on tank 10 and still has gobs of pinch, i am not really abusing it that badly..!!!! i do a feel maybe a little guilty, but not much !!
should move to Arizona we just started our winter series and every lap at the Nitro pit is that taxing on your motor!

i dont see the beating of those engines anywhere but hey to each there own

a real beating was at a pro series here where a guys motor blew and he had to races left and took a brandnew v-spec and popped it in broke it in 2 tanks and leaned it as far as it would lean and continue to run and ran it two races and threw it away
