Not trying to call into question your running this setup on this particular motor,but the guy who Barry tuned his motor for said this trick did not do anything in reality.He said his motor done this way yielded no more power/rpm then anything else he was doing that weekend. 767's with a cavity works great.

767's with a cavity are the 769, right?
what do you think is working better with the cavity, with serrations or without serrations?

769 is correct. I run them without serrations and its fast! I noticed it doesnt fall off as bad as with serrations.IMO.

dude.. the Nemesis work great.. I don;t like the alfa too much at swr. too much front bite.

I prefer the mazda body rear bite and side bite is good.. medium steering I used that body to win norcal tc champs at SWR

the Nemesis is a good all round body especially if its high speed and sweeprs in the tight stuf it lacks heavy downforce in the front and feels like a status with more rear bite.

verdict ;

tight technical tracks mazda

high speed flowing tracks - Nemesis

Interesting... I can tell you, that it's definitely changed my perception of the Reedy Quad 19. Psychological? Maybe, but it was faster on the track, thats' for sure. Of course, actual results may vary.

One thing Ive found with the Reedy quad mags is a HEAVY springs and lots ol' gear!! Couldnt really tell much with brush cuts except a small hole in the center or an oval shaped hole in the center seemed to help it run a little cooler. If its really hot out I will use a small hole in the center then take a smaller bit and run it all the way out the back of the brush to make a vent like hole....it will really help with temps.

EA

Hey Dan let me know when you get the motors.

Dude.. I race most weekends against racenut123 .. his motors work pretty good. Too bad he's looking at my tailights alot!

19t is getting big here in Nor California..finally get some speed..
Open mods are still too exotic for most racers.. and require some driving skill..but once they get used to tuning then they'll step up to hotter winds.

Mod here is basically reserved for "factory" racers.

Anyone ever come to northern california let me know.. there's racing every weekend somewhere.

Is there a way to take back some peoples reservations? You know, like if you've never won a race at your hometrack you have to run sportsman until you do? LOL, you know who I'm talking about
