sorry, must have read wrong. Didn't think you would be pimping serpent' product.

But, I think what everyone wants is updates on the motor

I myself will not be in the marken til about October time frame, but definatly like for your engine(with your rep im sure you will not sell a piece of crap) to be in my option list.

right now it includes Nova ns3 (modded or not I know it is a damn good motor, Mugen X12(I know it has trouble making 5 minutes in a qualifier, so it counts it out), JP Fx12t03( Kinda pricey but I am sure it performs). and yours. Dennis I know you dont have to sell me on yours because I know you will sell plenty but I am still a budget minded racer and yours appeals to me the most at this time cause of the price(and im in the military and dont make all that much). but, I dont see Jean Paul on this site supporting his motor.

I guess thats about it. Thanks Dennis I am sure the motor will be great and I will have one in my car come time for the worlds.

significant strides were made in the last two weeks with regards to power and we hope durability. we are pulling it all together. we had a eureka moment last monday night and the true potential of the engine was reveled. still pulling hard at 330 ft .All I can say is Unfricken believable, I never dreamed a 12 could run that hard. I'm still beside myself and cant get over it with all the problems we had at the great lakes challenge. Ironicly the issue was a very small one requiring just a .3 mm change to a part. All the plans are in place we hope to launch the engine soon with the fixes. stay tuned. The nats is the true test as to whether we have it nailed or not. I believe we do. All my buddies said I should not say anything but I just cant help it. If the production motors have power like the preprototypes do you will be buying stock in belts and diff gears. The engines went from mediocre to absolutly stupid on power.

Gixer thanks fot the support. I know we are manufacturers and in the business to make money but people who appreciate what we are really trying to do are rare. again thanks. RD and Richey Performance thank you all for your support.

Well done Dennis, from the way you have written your post it sounds like you're a kid in a candy store again

Let me know as soon as I can get a couple of those motors over here to Australia for testing

Default Yo yo Brad

After running the motor really really hard for 20+ tanks of fuel, I can say that Dennis has fixed the problems that were present at the GLC. The motor is a keeper. Strong strong bottom end and really screams at the top. I'm tryin' hard to understate things here abit but I was impressed. The motor was also easy to tune and stayed that way all afternoon. The true test will be in race conditions.

If there is a motor out there to put a smile on RayJ's face when he squeezes the trigger then sign me up for one.

Dennis, will we be seeing these motors make the Midwest Series this weekend?
