    What, no video???? ;)
  3. Buddy... and pay close attention to the ductwork directly behind him......

    this is what happens a lot to the Flatcad crew.....

    now we are getting there....

    Buddy n Dale in a heated discussion of which end goes where.....

    this shows how much has to be attached before even one run is made, hours of work by the crew.....

    the infamous head knockin duct beware those who enter this space!!


    Dave and Buddy contemplating the next move??????


    as of today 1st run ... 261 @ 4000........... 2nd Run 573 @ 4900 Go Flatcad Team.........

    That is a pretty amazing dyno sheet (and engine). What is with the A/F readings?

    Buddy, Things seem to be looking real good for you and your team. Just retired so will be there in August to see this Flattie do it's thing !

    Hey, just a thought . . . . Being retired if you come to El Mirage, give a little warning and I will bring your crew some of my "Super Dave" approved Guacomole and chips.

  24. Wow! Over 600 hp from an engine that originally made 150.
