15hp is getting serious for sure IMO. Enough to take serious or get bit!
I dont think i make that much with 95cc,s
The CVT is seriously underestimated by some!

Areo - have you ever had correspondence with Marco over at RacingPlanet.com? Either it was him, or someone he knows well, built a Super9 that purportedly hit over 20 hp!

Looks like ROOST has something up their sleeve.

I want more info on Marko's cylinder! That's a lot of meat at the exhaust flange, and it definitely looks like he's up to something special with that one. Perhaps it has some universal exhaust flange, or a special design that lends to better "on the pipe" operation?

I didn't see any news on his site about it.

Ever heard of a triple bridged exhaust port?

Probably not quite what you had in mind though. :P That's the Frits Overmars FOS cylinder. You can read more about it at pit-lane.biz. There's a couple threads here on Scooter Invasion about it as well.

Yeah, it's really really neat! Read more about Jan Thiel and Frits Overmars here: The French stuff pretty much goes away after awhile. It's a must-read:

Best,

Well, last Sunday Daniel O, MrJoNeS and I went to the drag strip for our final passes of the season. Everyone did well, and we had some fun!

I thought I would share a photo of my 15 HP cylinder. Please keep in mind that this is a cylinder that I started porting years ago, so there are some things that I'm having to work around that I wouldn't do the same way today. The exhaust port has an "eyebrows" kind of shape to it. It's working well enough for me though, and the next things I want to do with my engine are to get a new clutch (I think I'm going to go with Dr. Pulley again), cut a new head, and do something about the ignition. I'm still using a stock CDI. If I can get my hands on an MSD 4217 I will.

ImageSo, here's the cylinder so far. More work needs to be done - especially with the transfers. I put this together in a hurry the day of the race, so I didn't make a port map of it, but I will do so before I do more work to it. As it sits, the durations are 194 and 126. I think I can squeeze a little more out of it with a higher exhaust, but I think I'm going to wait on that and re-work my combustion chamber first. It's nice to know that there's room to raise both transfers and exhaust though.

Last time I had the engine apart, I noticed some scuffing on the bore in front of the exhaust bridge. I used a cratex abrasive to relieve the bridge a little, and also went the extra step and drilled a couple of holes in the piston. Please excuse the damage to the piston up at the top - remember, this cylinder came out of a garbage can some 6 years ago. :)

I have thought a long time about retiring this cylinder, but I refuse to do it until I am able to produce 18HP out of it. Someone told me it was impossible, so that's my goal before retiring this one, and starting over fresh. :)


After this, I managed my best ET of the season, which was 10.283 seconds in 1/8 mile. With some more CVT tuning I'm sure I can get this into the high 9 second's range. With the head and clutch, I hope to be able to get the times down even more. Even still, I believe that this is a slow scooter compared to many of the high-end builds. I feel pretty good about how far I'm pushing this Airsal top end though.

Still looks a mess after all this time. :) I've got the body work down at a local paint shop, and he's going to get to it when he has time. Looks like it'll be a while though.

Cheers!
