Lmao! read your quotes and responses. Kevin posted he did what he did without major issue. When you quoted that posted you said he did it with NO issue. Which clearly wasn't what Kevin wrote. But Hey you must be the genius right? So have at it. I never gave u shit for questioning it. Just changing the terms of what was posted. And now im the one gettin shit? Lulz!
Oh ok, because spinning bearings at 10,000rpms on stock crank/stroke is just 'no major issue'...right?
Oh yea! no big deal brotha! just a rod bearing getting tossed out that bad boy at 10k! Crank and/or rods are toast at that point. who knows how many times that happened before he figured out he better invest in a crank and/or RA-ratio.
Jesus. Let me get vendorship, a gold name-tag, and I can sell you a bridge for $100.
A mod might as well close this up.
Kevin Warren resorted to talking crap on Facebook instead of actually carrying out a discussion or rebutting that the 10,000rpm didnt spit out bearings every other pass, while his clinger-ons jumped on and claimed how SRTF sucks. Only one shooting straight are Racerx and I, I feel. I don't sugar coat, and I don't band wagon so maybe that's why I doubt and ask questions instead of just believing every word said from a vendor.
FWIW, I'm not hating on KW. If he wants to aim for 10,000rpm and have it actually be reliable, great. It only furthers the development for our car, which is cool.
Just don't say oh yea i ran 10,000rpm no major issue...i just crushed bearings here and there but it can be done!
NO! if you are toasting bearings (and inevitably other parts in consequence) in a short span that tells you there are problems that need to be addressed.
I just don't want to see clinger-ons posting in a month "oh yea, Kevin Warren said you can rev out to 10,000 so it must be ok" and watching a helpless uneducated soul make a thread a week later asking why his bottom end is in pieces.
