With the weather warming up we were able to do some testing with our new oil and oil less turbo systems.

So far everything is working great . Shredders project Blue Balls with it's triple ceramic bearing oil less turbo worked great. It was different not having any oil lines going or coming out of a conventional looking turbo. Were now working with our turbo builder to dial in the sizing to make it perform to our standards.
What we really like about this set up is we can use a larger frame turbo and drive shaft with wheels and housings ment for for smaller turbos. That with the triple ceramic bearings we should be able to do away with problems related with small frame turbos.

Jr's white Raptor with it's stand alone oil system performed great. The oil never got over 150 degs. This aided with the Raptors cooling system with the Raptors water temp. never getting over 180 degs. even with several hard passes in a row.
This was a really good weekend for Bob's quad. With a few new mods and tweaks. Its was the first time we were able to turn up the power to near the potential of the turbo system. He was clocked with mulitable guns making passes from 79 to 86 mph going up the drag hill at Sand Mountain. Not bad for 4500ft alt. His personal goal right now is to hit 90mph on the hill. We feel it has it in her just having trouble with the clutch slipping and the small frame turbo holding the high boost.

Keven's Raptor with it's new Monster big bore duals on a stock motor. Now as he gets older he can build into the pipes. The fit and finish on these new big bores are second to none. Paul at Monster does great work.....:cool: Thanks for the hook up Paul....:thumbsup:

Nice work Bob, 79-86MPH is flying up that hill! Those bike look awesome! I still haven't sold the R1 Raptor, looks like I might trade it for a 4 mil Banshee or something. If I don't sell it I'll get my bike back to you guys for some more power later this year.

I'll be at Sand MTN for Memorial Day Weekend. If I sell the R1 Raptor by then, I'll let you know.

I retract my previous statement about the oil pump being in the way when shifting. I would still be afraid of hitting or accidentally kicking it and breaking or cracking a fitting. Bikes are looking good.
