    That would be awsome to see in a gokart. I wonder how many ponies that would put down?!

    My life is a
    Ben Stiller movie.

    they sound better than, and probably make more power than any rice burner! Those were cool.

    wonder if the builders integrated cooling systems or if they can't run them long b/c i didn't see radiators on many of them...some had fans though.

    I actually looked those up one time to see how much they cost. Big bucks.

    Just did a quick search and didn't find the same one I looked at a while back but this is ballpark for prices. OUCH!! They don't make as many HP as you might think either. Cool ass toy either way.

    Unfortunately, the 427 engine that many of you have been so familiar with, is no longer in production. Like the V-10, most of the molds for the 427 engine were destroyed in a catastrophic fire at the foundry.

    Here is the latest in the Conley line of V-8 engines. It sports the Stinger 609 name badge (6.09 cubic inches or almost 100 cc) and is the culmination of almost 30 years of knowledge gained in the designing and construction of model engines. The new Stinger possesses no parts used in prior V-8 engines. The bore is 1.00, with a .970 stroke. It weighs about 11.25 pounds and measures 14" long, 6" wide, and 8-1/4" tall. The supercharged version will be about 10" tall. Among the numerous innovative features like large oval shaped intake ports, "D" shaped exhaust ports, and investment cast parts, two bold attributes stand tall: the dry sump pressurized oiling system and a full ignition system. The engine even has a user replaceable oil filter. For those of you who lack familiarity with dry sump oiling, it simply means that oil resides in a holding tank, rather than a conventional oil pan, which circulates throughout the engine. The oil that does collect in the pan is simply pumped back to the holding tank. There are two separate "Gerotor" style pumps to move all the oil. An important side note, my test engine held about 40 lbs oil pressure at idle and 80 lbs oil pressure at 8,000 rpm. The dry sump oiling system not only adds more oil volume but aids in engine cooling. The spark plugs have a 10-40 thread. As always, the new Stinger 609 V-8 will have an electric starter as standard equipment. No hand held electric motors here, or something that fits in a box below the engine, but rather an 12 volt electric motor that comes as standard equipment and is part of the engine. It can be activated manually or via the transmitter on your remote control. The centrifugal clutch is also included. The cost of the standard engine is $5,295.00 and will show off the standard “Zoomie” style exhaust. Optional cast stainless steel exhaust manifolds are shown on the engine. These can also be ordered polished. Other options will include a painted intake manifold/valve cover combination and a fully painted engine. The supercharged version will be available in the future as well as a forward/neutral/reverse transmission.

    Each engine will be fully Dyno tested and adjusted for optimum performance. I am expecting around 6+ hp at 9,000 rpm for the normally aspirated version.
