A bit jelly, that's a great mod list. Can I ask who you bought it from? I had an autox instructor who mentioned a LO msm in NJ used to dominate the autox events.

That's this one. The guy who used to own it won 2 SCCA nationals in it apparently, he lived in NY.

The motor isn't built like some thought, just had the rev limit on the Hydra set @ 8000rpm :fp:

I love it to pieces.

The original motor spun a bearing aand is being collected in the next few weeks as our winter project. Gonna build it up so it can take 16lbs and redline @ 8000. Just not sure what's required yet.

Sounds like the one, the instructor mentioned it rev'd to 8000 and could hit around 70mph in 2nd gear.

Let me get this straight, that thing is hitting 8000 rpm on stock internals? :eek:
