Default YIKES!!!!

Wouldn't all that material removal from the counterweight screw up the already unbalanced rotating assembly?

How about adding heavy metal plugs to compensate for material loss(if you have enough room left ).

no wonder my engine is so fast

as far as loosing weight on the crank i see it as all good

i once had a legal sirio and outlaw sirio apart at the same time the outlaws crank was worked alot more than the stock

with only the crank in the block spinning the legal crank was harder to spin and it stopped spinning sooner than the lighter outlaw crank

the weight of the legal one seemed to throw it more off balance

These cranks are pretty balanced as you need to take into account the piston and conrod. If you were to take the stock crank and spin it without the piston, conrod, and sleeve attached, it would spin about 3 or 4 turns freely. The sirio's have a lot of metal on their cranks as is. After the work done to these cranks, it spins about 10 to 15 turns freely with a ring the same weight as the piston,conrod, etc. on the conrod shaft. I have been trying brass as my counter weight material. It also looks good polished.

I am always changing designs to further the output power of these motors while still maintaining 6 to 7 minute run times per tank. I dont go around saying my motor is faster then his or hers I just let the motor and the customers do the talking.

I dont even remember what a RTU OR RTO looks like anymore. I know my designs have improved my motors 85% from its first picture post. Needless to say, I have already seen my designs used in other tuners motors and I could care less. More power to them and I hope that the money they make goes to a good cause.

More power to us regular rchobby enthusiasts who are just trying to equal the playing field(Richey included).

I have to give credit to MR. D. Richey. I have learned a lot from him although be it indirectly. He has opened the field up for every tuner out there and has made the path that I have gone down much easier. His opinions and research given to everyone on rectech.net and other sites are worth their weight in gold. I look forward to his opinions on the these posts and his art out on the track.

Just remember, no one is perferct and we all make mistakes, me so more then others.

Sirio cranks are very heavy ended and have a lot of material to work with. THe Novarossi based engines dont have as much material and I have a different design for them with some of the same characteristics as shown in the sirio's.

Definately great looking work.

I think a lot of us jumped the gun big time. We can only apologise and learn from mistakes and then leave it all in the past.

Post Like they say,

there are more than one way to skin a cat, more than one road to Rome. if one must think his way is the only good way to skin a cat, so be it, but just don't start yelling "copy cat !!! " as soon as someone pick up a knife trying to skin a cat in a different way.

We need cheaper cats not fancier breeds. Besides the hairballs are a bitch.

Pretty soon those fancier breeds will require some inbreeding the way everyone is going!
