Testing on the Spin Tron!!


We were lucky enough to be able to make time and get the opportunity to go to Statesville,NC at CV Products and do some testing on there Spin Tron. We were able to learn a lot between crates, limiteds, and super late model engines on there valve train. We spent most of our time at CV working on the crate program trying to figure out how to make these engines better, safer, and make more power, and what we found out was astounding that such a little change could make the difference between wrecking the engine or making big power. Were going to be putting together a kit for crate engines that will offer the chance to make more power and stay a lot safer and wont hurt the engine by turning it 6800-6900 and it floating the valves horribly. With this kit though it will not be NeSmith legal but only legal in a limited class, and its still above the seals. On the Spin Tron with a LEGAL NeSmith engine and on our dyno, 6800 is the absolute most we need to turn these engines without wrecking the valve train. With this kit on the Spin Tron and our dyno we can turn this same motor that nothing below the seals were changed, 7300-7400 and NOT even started floating the valves, while a legal engine is in trouble by 6800. This kit will be for tracks like 411 Speedway and Atomic in the Limited class, and once again NOT be NeSmith legal. With being able to turn 7300-7400 you can run more gear and be able to come off the corner 400-600 rpm's higher and run with the bigger engines, restarts better and just all around better. This kit will be on the 23 car driven by Cory and will be ran at the "Sweetheart 60" at 411 Speedway and if all goes good then the kit will be available to anyone. We will keep everyone updated with how this goes!! The Limited and Super program we also did some testing on what we've been running and it seemed to be ok and happy on the Spin Tron, we tried a few things, helping it everytime and got a few more rpm's out of those engines as well. Once again just come come off the corner and it pull hard, hopefully with the Spin Tron testing and our dynoing these past few weeks will help our late model engine programs and we will continue to run up front. We'll let you know how it all goes!!
