Default Need your help Motorman!!!

Hey, Dennis, would you mind elaborating on the modifications you did to the drive train on your VECTOR/Impact hybrid? I would like to do similar lightening measures to my Impulse. Any input would be much appreciated. Thanks alot.

It has to be a non-turbo 3-port design.

Thumbs up Thanks for the info Dennis

Good lord that's alot of mods. You are the king Dennis. Any ideas on some mods an average joe like myself could do? Or you could start up a line of aftermarket parts Also would you mind dropping me an e-mail about pricing on some motors? I have an MT-12 that i'd like to keep ROAR legal. I also have an RB 5 port and an RX-21 R1. What can you do on these? Thanks again for the response.

What does having bearings with a smaller outside race do? The outsides aren't rotating mass and the reduction in weight is almost nothing isn't it? Why do you think Serpent didn't use this from the outset? Just curious!

Whew, crazy mods to your car Dennis.
I have a header question: Does a smaller ID header tend to give more Low end torque and mid range, larger ID top end?
Or am I confused again, LOL.

Seems like a lot of engines out now will give my little RB 5 port a run for its money. Motorman, can work be done on my 5 port and how much will it cost? There is probably a queue or a huge line outside your house . My email is [email protected] or [email protected]. that is a zero in ic0nn, not an "O".
