    Hi Tim, staying in MI ? I miss attending Mark's AOMC meet, so much racing history displayed. Have missed many of your MAD machinest displays at Mark's.

    In as much as Tim is having trouble uploading pictures, I will upload the engine mock up photos that he has forwarded to me by email.

    It is a really nice looking package looking forward to seeing it run.

    Default Many thanks

    Many thanks to Dick Austin for posting images. The 888 looks fearsome, and will run early fall; a move will delay completion. More images and detail will be posted as progress occurs. Have a fun summer, and always remember: The throttle works both ways! Tim

    Can you give us a precis on how it works, crankcase compression ratio zero, so boost overcomes that, is that it?

    Precisely: The crankcase is an open plenum; the crankshaft is supported by reed cages with no reeds. Cylinders are fed with air-fuel mixture supplied by the turbocharger.

    Hi Tim, are you staying in MI ? That MI air seems to keep the creative juice flowing. Between our old friend, the late Bud Parker, you and Dick showing the way to the future. Hope everything goes well in the move.

    Hi Al,
    Actually departing Michigan for the mountains, lakes, and rivers of Idaho. The shop will be down for a few months; but you'll see updates in September if BRF behaves itself! Have a great summer, all!
