It was nice to the both of you DD. And let me tell you I asked DD how many RPMS his buggy was turning he said O about 6,000, DD your Tach is wrong that thing was turning about 12,000RPM. It is a bad motor.

That motor is burnt. I'm saving up $550 to get another out of the junk yard. I've only got 90-65-110-165 etc compression compared to 195 even a year ago. I had some trapped air issues before I was educated and could grill some steaks on the head 6 or 7 rides and I bad over heated it each time.Opening day last year it would twist out of the frame. I learned the radiator had to be bleed the hard way. I was new at radiators.I love that VR 6 motor.
