Instead of the reedy engine have a word with steve at indy about getting the alpha orange head engine. it is priced lower and seems a very strong mill. Last i heard about the reedy is that there have been some tuning gremlins that need to be designed out of that engine. everything else looks good. might want to consider the alpha pipe with the engine, he may have those in stock as well.

on the reedy engine take out the silicon in the crank! i have seen in many cases it coming out and ruining the whole engine. you can take it out and nothing will be effected except you'll loose about 30 seconds of run time. great engine other than that.

Hope you get it together in time for Indy. I won't offer any tips though since I'll be racing against you.
I've seen several of the Reedy motors run and almost bought one. They seem to be nice and smooth. I didn't get one because of all the issues with the silicone falling out of the crank.
