quad440, where you at?  I live in Whitesboro, just west of Sherman, Tx. 

Is this a stock bore motor?

i'm just wondering why sparks can get this kind of power that some seem to think is really hard to get... :ermm:

D-Racer I have some bad news for you...just came from the shop of JH-Racing...and...drum roll please...he laughed at the 59 HP number!!!

His best output ever has been 54 and the only Sparks part on the bike is a pipe!!!

His first bike last year was a Sparks built bike...said it ran great the first race and dropped about 15% in performance each race after that and never, never made over 50 HP!!!

Here is his website...call him if you disbelieve anything I have reported!

JH-Racing Clicky!!!

When I used VP-U4 it gave me an additional 2 HP. I don't know if any racing gas can give you 6 more HP?

VP claims MR9 will make 2-3% more power than that. Don't know if it's true.

Why would anyone consider any of Baldwin's, Sparks', or whoever's work when Dan Lamey claims 67hp out of a stock bore engine?

The 54hp claim in the above post from a Sparks engine, and the 54 hp from a Baldwin built engine from a local pro TT racer clearly fail miserably in comparison to the DASA.

It almost seems unbelieveable in the gap of output between them.

If all of the claims prove true, it's probably based on the amount of cubic dollars you have available to spend.

I am not saying that that is an engine made to beat around on the trails and in the dunes. I is made for racing only!!! And Sorry it not an engine combination I am not willing to sell yet. Gat to keep my edge till the racing starts in Feb.

Ok then.

I'll say this. They all still fail in comparison to your 63-65hp output.

Both Mark and Curtis build great engines and have been doing it for along time. I have alot of respect for them and get along with both of them. We always are talking at the races and might look weird to some people but we have a good time.

I have nothing bad to say about Curtis at all he helped for the first few rounds of the nationals and the 1 stadium race I did. His motors ran good we just had a few problems and I had a local guy that does stuff for the shop build me a motor and it ran really good. He is only a 45 min drive away if something happens in pinch it is not a big deal to get it fixed. I have alot of respect for the guys like Curtis,Dan,Mark,Eddie,Arlen,ect. The guys that have been around for a long time and have always made a good product. I agree with Dan I can talk to just about anyone in the industary competor or not and have a good converstion.
