Hey, don't you ever come home to the UK to visit friends or family? Come over to AMCC ... as NiMo says ... "Overseas visitors welcomed".

If things go according to plan, I'll join the Series 2 race on the 4th of July.

C'mon man ... we'll get PalamarisEurope, kreidel etc over too perhaps.
If I only have to bring over my car and radio equipment

got my copy of the ray woods video the other day, was quite nicre to rewatch the race, I would hope we could get him to every winternats.
took my serpent out last week, still broke from the second lap wall it got in the main, put er down on the local track, did a tire swap and put .4 second faster laps on the guys, now I juts need to replace the front bumper plates. (still broke from florida)

nats in toledo, I have been so wraped up in the 1/5th development in the US I have not even thought about them, but the thought is there now. Hmmm can I resist or do I need the big show fix.. can the family and pocket book survive five big shows in one year..... hmmmmm such hard choices

This is due to the chassie being pushed down when using serpent type of starter box. Now, take a look at other boxes, like the mugen one, this type of box has a flat part where the chassie actually sits on it and when it is pressed the WHOLE part goes down.
And people wonder why I insist on making an ugly looking box instead of buying one.

Tested this months ago. Ran a full solid bar through the one-way with the outdrives attached to either end. But didnt hold it with set screws. Basically a solid axle with no front wheel braking.

Works great with Lola shells on a tight twisty track.

Is there a company website for HARD Shark pipe? I hear that the shark pipe comes in 3 different types for .12 engines which is low , mid and top end?

Not sure why but the Shark pipes were not working here on the JP or Novamega engines. Totally killed the power and sent the temps through the roof. Stopped some engines from idling.

Is it true because I just ordered one, but I guess its not too late to cancel the order

Possible they just dont like our colder weather. I believe Chris Lee is running one on our engine in HK and he seems to be flying with it.

the shark pipe is not as good as you would have to beleive. indeed, the shark pipe is very high fuel consumption and we switch back to nova or max

The drugs are fortunately not strong enough to affect my brain that much
Hopefully the injury clears up quite soon, as I'm off into the alps in a week and a half!

I'm not aware of this. If you got the inline one, you could adjust the pipe length via some teflon inserts. If you got the two piece pipe version, there is an outlaw and legal version. You need to purchase a separate manifold for it.

The Shark pipe requires very rich HSN settings like 5 to 6 full turns out. Else, you'll just lean the engine. Ths Shark pipe is very long. I think I measured mine and the pipe length was like 118 mm thereabouts WITHOUT the inserts. With the inserts, it'll be longer. Nova pipes are like 98 mm thereabouts.

Perhaps that's the reason why kitracer is having success with the Palmaris. The engine can be leaned out a lot and still hold a tune.

For high speed tracks, the newer Nova based pipes are excellent. For short tracks, the Shark pipe gives very good bottom end torque.
