    Now I gotta guess the stock cage bearing on the piston wrist pin will not be used.. Just saw somebody's blow up today. Not the fist I have herd of ether.

    I think someone should have taken the bet....of course DV didn't put a time limit on his bet, so like the aircraft world, maybe in many several years, the speed of sound will also be had.

    I would have to be right there, in person, watching, before I'd believe there was a 49 cc china girl capable of xct2breaking the sound barrier. Even then, It'd be hard to fathom. And I would certainly question the sanity of the rider.

    Like a lot of pipe dreams, it may have gone up in smoke.

    I have seen a whole lot of people giving these guys crap just cause Jim runs a shop that does business every day and he can't spend every single day working on this super engine. He has already explained that he is doing his regular business things and don't have a lot of time to play.

    Seriously you guys need to give it a rest. It is already way old.

    What Nunya said!
    If you guys would read all the posts you will see that Jim is just making the best engine he can. If it goes over 50 great, if it hits 55 super, if it hits 60 woW!

    It is getting kind of old now. If it goes fast, good job. It goes fast. You'll get a 'atta boy and have something to talk about and maybe win some bets. If it runs smoother, good job. It runs smoother. If it does both, great job. It's still a boat load of mods and money to a $100 engine. Kind of like making a Honda Civic out run a Corvette, it can be done. Is it worth it? Depends on who is asking the question. The people on the outside will probably say "no" and the ones with their hands on it are all into it. It's relative.

    thats a terrible comparison. i could make a civic out runn a vette cheaper than you could buy a vette.

    picky, picky. It was good enough, wasn't it? You'd still have a civic, just a fast one. What about making this bicycle outrun a souped up civic?

    See what I mean about it being relative? Depends on who is involved. I'll rephrase if the comparison was so bad. It's like trying to make a civic out run a (pick a sports car). There are some out there that view corvettes the way others view civics, easily obtainable. They probably try to make vettes out run something else. It goes on and on. That's why it's relative. I use to be into 4x4's(yes, I'm a redneck.) I spent lots of cash to have the biggest and baddest only to go bust mudholes and break stuff that ended in spending more cash. Eventually, I figured out that it wasn't worth it to me anymore. It still is worth it to many others, just not me. RELATIVE!

    I think it's more like taking a Yugo and making it run like a Civic. Basically correcting the flaws.

    Hi 4easy. It's cool that you are so close by. If you can give me two hours notice I'll have a 2010 Corvette for you to race. My friend in Wickenberg buys a new one each year.
