In restricted classes, high r.p.m. is often necessary to win.
The bore being, "a little over 4-inches" and the stroke being, "a little over 3-inches"

That which you manifest is before you.
The above reminds me of the multi-time LeMans winning Dodge Vipers. 6200 rpm max IIRC, 'course if was an endurance race.
There are very few people in this world who's opinion I value, you are not one of them.
300 in 1999
Interesting, that's almost exactly the range I have on my turbo-4 endurance engine, I hit peak horsepower at exactly the same rpm. They must have read the same SAE paper on LeMans racing engines that I did. (Said firmly with tongue in check, LOL)
Anytime I hear that someone's goal is X boost, or X rpm, I figure they can't find their ass with either hand. Those are means to an end, not the end.
I'm still learning
Not that Ive got the cash, but this thread started me looking for R5 parts on ebay. Lots of good stuff out there for lowish bucks,
at least when compared to new.
