ybslow, Dennis:

Any truth to the rumour that Brad's Richey Mod RS12 had a 4 MPH advantage on the straight over every other car at Speedline? Wouldn't surprise me

I was informed his car was 59 MPH on the back straight on radar everyone else was 54 to 55. Baker ran a Murnan Serio and went 55. (and Uriah's motors Honk) The Mugen boyz run X12 JP's. That is a fact as I understand it. I certainly don't discuss the little advantage we have anymore. Were making a tremendous amount of power with the combo we have as you saw at the Airtronics race. (sometimes to much is a disadvantage as the car just cant plant it and the car actually goes slower)



No excuses he was just being out driven, That A main company is a tough crowd.

On another note I should be recieving 10 or so of the real RD/Richey engines off the final tooling around May 7th. Shortly after all the final testing is done and the packaging is complete the engine will launch in volume. Gary and the RD team is getting serious about turning up new product in short order. Watch for it.

ETA: Late May early June

Brad's car was insanely fast on the straightaway, but Barry proved that it's not just about ponies. He straight up walked away from everyone from the git go.

Awesome weekend, but tough on motors! I've never seen so many blown glow plugs in one weekend, which turned out to be somewhat of a commodity on the day of the mains.

Barry is the man! I do not race for a living or have a track within 350 miles of where I live either. I play with toy cars for fun and competition.

Kevin I would like to talk to you about doing a couple of bodies for me for the Texas Biggie.

What do you mean no excuse, I have several. Ran out of gas, flamed out in the pits, ran a different motor in the main that was not tuned to my liking, chose the wrong front tires and pushed like a Bee--Yatch! Oh and Barry is a paid professional and my number 1 excuse HEINEKEN!

When the Brads on he's on, I'll keep him. Not only being a good friend he's loyal as a BEE- ATCH.

I just still can't fathom his ass in a suit, with a bunch 50 year old of aerospace designers working for him. That shit just ain't right!!

I just can't picture it.

Dennis, how would it affect the Turbo II pipe if it was run with a header from the regular Turbo pipe.

I had som bending going on with mine and might have to rplace it.

Will it kill the pipes performance?
