...I got a coupla nifties all done.  "Something not borrowed, something blue".

First off, my billet can #2 with a screaming #26

Second is a tastey Mura Green Can motor.  This is one I machined all five sides flat.  Result is extra crispy edges AND a bit of a drop in weight.  To go with her new more-svelte figure, she got a heavy freakin' duty #25 wind.  Magnets are the proper long ones, and I threw a com cooler on her for giggles.

Two very fast and vastly different motors, but both were the kind of projects where everything just "worked".

Excellent  choice!  It's got dragster written all over it!  Would also be a good starting point for a real 'thingie'!

Jeepers, I woulda thunk it would feel right at home in a glorious lead-sled...but hey...it's a lotta horsepower and could go in anything that "wants" the slot car equivalent of a blown big block.  :D
