Hey Dennis
Want to test at sea level? Come to Honolulu, the parking lot we race on is at sea level In fact the ocean is across the street from the parking lot. And Kris Moore from Mugen will tell you the track has a lot of traction.

Thanks Roy and others. Please spread the word about the engine as it is still somewhat unknown to the rest of the world at this point though I figure after the nats that won't be the case. If you hobby shops don't carry RD stuff tell them to get on it! we have alot more stuff comming. a car is in the works somewhere in the next year we hope.

As far as volume goes peak production is sloted at 1000 a month with a gradual ramp up. There should be plenty to go around in a few months. My website will also include comprehensive information about tuning and caring for your engines. Right now the site is simply a placeholder on the web but that will change within the next few months.

If we get whacked at the nats it will be a driving or setup issue as we do not have a lack of power problem. In fact dealing whith the amount we have has been. On throttle push on the 710 was a real problem for us the last three weeks but we have a good handle on it now.

There are alot of good drivers and tuner engines that will be at the nats. we just hope for a good showing to make up for the catastrophy we suffered at cincinatti a few years ago.

Dennis what did you do to get rid of the on throttle push on the 710?

How about on the signature engines you put the names of the people on the waiting list their names? Peronalized Richey Signatures engines.

The lhs's here havn't heard of your engines until recently and some still don't know about you. Only a few racers talk about it and are waiting to see how "unfricken believable" your engines are.

So when will we learn more about the new car? Serpent, Mugen, Kyosho, AE based? Shaft or Belts?

One question, is the signature engine coming with the package of both heads + pipe, etc. or will this be just engine??? I need the std. head, because we still haven't changed our rules till next year to allow turbo heads.
