Very cool.  Keep the updates coming.  I made sure to get the hemi version when I bought mine.

I mean geez, if I'm going to lay out $99 for a motor I damn well want the proper head geometry!  Haha

Yeah I'm thinking this thing is going to be down right scary at top end. Like said, Ken is my inspiration, it's going to be Stupid Powered. 20HP should be right in the ball park, on a bike that was designed for 3 1/2 or 4 hp. And yep it's the HEMI head version 212.  When ever you are ready I'll be glad to build it for you, and I mean you. We all know you built the kart for you. LOL!

Most of the performance goodies arrived today, I still have to order the new wheels and tires for it. Also got the frame and such all stripped down ready for clean up sanding and some new paint.

Yeah the way they screwed up with the track of Irma, I swear they have a dart board they toss darts at for the weather reports.

Maria looks like Irma's big sister, hopefully she tracks North and stops going West. Saw it has decimated some of the islands and was about to clobber Puerto Rico next.

That's all we need now, all the debris in piles along the streets and roads from Irma would make for nasty things for her to toss around.

I think it's about time for you guys down south to hunker down again. Cat 5 in the Carribean.

This one went from a TS to a cat 5 overnight. Hurricane Maria. 

You Tubers think this one could be the biggest ever.

Well, it might make me legal (or closer to it) for some applications. It does open up a bunch of frequencies to me but obviously that would require specially tuned gear outside the normal RC -centric frequencies. More fun theory and crap to futz with for sure!

You're going to make it into the 20s? (hp)?

This is a Predator 212 right?  Let me know when to box mine up and send it.

You ever watch the youtube videos from John and Issac?  Love those guys.

Oh the old racer in me has taken over. While waiting on the parts to arrive I was looking at the cylinder head. Hmm, I think I can make it flow better. A while back I read up on port modding. Instead of making the ports bigger, you make them smaller.  ???

Yeah I know goes against all proper thought of bigger ports means more flow.

You also change the port shape, by putting a hump in the "floor" of the ports and instead of a perfectly polished intake floor, you cut a series of notches in it and leave the casting fairly rough. The roughness/notches creates vortexes which help keep the fuel mixed with the air. And the hump, causes a venturi effect, speeding up the flow, and in turn it helps  pull more of the mixture in via causing a vacuum affect on the back side of the "venturi.  This makes more of the flow make it to the valve and combustion chamber, and also helps with evacuating the combustion chamber on the exhaust stroke.

On the exhaust side, same type hump, but a polished port. Same venturi effect, which once in motion actually causes a vacuum in the port, helping to pull out the exhaust. The polished port keeps the stuff flowing out.

Also you remove any sharp edges on both ports where they meet the valve pockets, this way the air has a smoother shot into and out of the combustion chamber.

Actually when you think about it, it makes sense.

Coupled with the new camshaft grind, valve job I did, indexing the spark plug so it has a better shot at firing the mixture, rejetting the carb, matching the ports on both carb and header, and stronger valve springs to prevent valve float at high rpm's, this thing is going to be wicked.  It's going to have KEN STUPID POWER! ;D
