@Mike Miller Racing Engines, that looks like a nitrous piston to me, is that what it is???

 

It’s from a centrifugal Superchargered drag boat motor.

There are the ones I brought to work, the rest of it is either in the trash barrelat a race track somewhere or in a box at home. 

Everything from a nitrous 903 Chevyy", to a NA 1915 VW, to mendeola gear sets.

Those CV balls................... WOW.... 

 

I still have them somewhere in my shop. The axle got so hot it pretty much welded the CV star to it. It's hanging on the wall in the race shop. We were running 2nd place in the 2010 BITD Parker 425 and our first time racing that series. Downtime cost us 2 hours. We switched to true outboard hubs soon thereafter, which cost us $10,000.

Stock honda 3.5A3 in a mid size HRT a-arm car. Original build of the car had all weddle trans top to bottom, super dif, reinforced case “strongest you build an 091”. That trans lasted 5 season with the third seasons needing bearings and reverse gear. The last refresh it needed R/P and second gear, I went with a German R/P vs a weddle it only lasted half a season.I definitely believe in weddle product after my experience. Also after having five season in the car and with my boys growing allowing for faster speeds. We it let go it was a long up hill sandy run at Superstition with dirt tires (33” BGF). After the pull up the hill I stop to let the group catch up, down shifted from third to first, as I let the clutch out to take off BOOM and shook the car like Iv never felt before I knew it was catastrophic. It was time for a beer break

Hondas can build some Torque ... I've been in a car when the Trans "locked up" .. it was an Underwear break even more than a Beer break.  My trans builder says the New German R&P's are no way as good as the Weddle stuff - If you want German you buy and old "seasoned" set . I though it was BS, but this confirms it...
