Impressive but it's for drag racers :cry:

Their other carbs seem fairly priced so I wonder what the earmark on this thing will be.

Now you can drop really big things down the carb. :D

I like the simple look, but that is always my reaction. Ask John Reed, the first time I saw the inside of a transmission my reaction was "That has way too many moving parts to work reliably".

Try opening up a bike engine. :o I estimate 400 parts by the time your done - with not one but FOUR carbs (or throttle bodies)16 valves-18 clutch plates-6 drive gears-6 driven gears--etc etc.
Translating road racing to hillclimbing:
Proper tire selection== nothing hooks up on moss or wet leaves.
Staying on the racing line==anything paved is considered good.

Amazing that they work so well. I'm still waiting for the solid state motor. :geek:
