Currently at Race Visions Reborn getting a frame wrapped around it. Planning on running a 50:50 nitro and methanol. May go up slightly from there depending on how the engines react. Plans are to have it running next year (2015). Here's a shot of the business end.

RVR was able to use the PMFR hub by modifying the rear sprocket. Rear sprocket is 42 tooth and geared for around 180 mph. Nice work. Thanks RVR (Race Visions Reborn).

Can you post a higher definition photo? It looks like there are lots of cool details in the avatar. Any details on the upper end mods you want to share?

Gives a different meaning to "long bike" !!
