    I think it is because people consider the best = most powerful.
    Right now Duttweiler, DLS. RPE and Anderson are at the top of the list.

    I'm going to use Anderson to do one of them for SURE. The SB is obviously a Duttweiler car so it will go back to him for any additional mods. The other car.....I'm not sure yet.

    Weber built us a TSM motor that we will bring out this year, as soon as we get our ducks in a row:biggrin: We are shooting for the record, or it will go boom:biggrin: You will hear plenty about it....

    Dan at DLS built us a TFS motor that is just nazty:cool: Pretty sure it made most power on dyno with a stock turbo I/C combo has ever made.... He has 2 stroker 109 blocks going for me and a off center stage II we are trying to decide what to do with...

    Anderson's 7.25 motor is going in our Twin Race Car project with a few updates;) :cool:

    I think they are all great!

    I've seen guys with tons of financial backing throw their money away because their impulsiveness gets the best of them. :frown:

    Very true! I had a super gas nova with a $3500 BB full of swap meet parts and junk no one wanted. Just gotta know what works and just keep tweeking it little by little. Ive seen guys spend major $$ and change 8 things at once and gain nothing. Oh and yea that nova ran 9.85 on the motor all out no throttle stop. I remeber a friend summed up bracket racing to me once "Ive never seen so much money spent to go so slow" 9 sec. cars throttled down to run 10.90s. sad

    My Point is the same as yours, the man that started this thread was looking for the complete package. A proven combination. and not looking at throwing cash in the Wrong places... there is Nothing Wrong with wanting the Best.



    there is another thread in the Tech forum with a simular theme. :biggrin:

    I'm definitely going to do one car with Anderson, but he doesn't want the car until the fall since I'm doing a full car build. I'd say this time NEXT year will be the time to post pics of the car. :)

    That post is over a year old. VegasSE has already come and gone and been proven to be a lot of hot air.

    Maybe he did do some research and found it was more that he could deal with.

    I love these cars but if money was not a concern I would probably be building something else. Maybe his interests shifted. He did had 1/2 million dollars in cars in his garage so I doubt it was more then he could deal with.
