Ace assisting Bullet Whisperer racing effort
« on: October 31, 2013, 02:29:38 PM »
BIG news!

Paul Henshaw(Bullet Whisperer) and his Enfield racing team have selected Ace to assist in technical modifications and support for their Bullet 500 racing engine.

We will be working jointly on this project to make next year's season even better than the last.

We are very honored and pleased to have this tremendous opportunity with a high profile team on the UK racetracks.

We thank Paul and his team, and hope you all will be rooting for us to win!

Yes, as Ace has already pointed out, exciting times may be ahead, the 500 'Big Head' racer engine is totally stripped and will be looked at in all areas in the quest for more power and speed 45.95 BHP @ the rear wheel to beat, as a previous best. There is a package being collected for shipping to you tomorrow, Ace, that will set the ball rolling. There is no shortage of 'stuff' to do here, as well  8)

I can't even describe how excited I am about this. I was up all night thinking about it!

Ace & BW - This is really exciting!  If my new plan goes without too many hiccups I may be seeing you at Bonneville next year.  How cool would that be?  A Bullet and a Twin going for speed records at the same event!

Do you have a crank in the works or are you using a Hitchcock's? That is first on the list of things that my bike needs. I need to get off my ass this winter and get it running again. Ace, how much to get my current head checked over and flow tested?

We rebuild cranks, either stock or Hitchcock's, but we don't make any cranks at this time.
We do a couple variations of Carrillo con-rods, and big end bearings, but not any whole cranks yet.
Maybe next year.
But, we can rebuild what you have.
Chumma does all the crank rebuilds in NJ.

The flow tests are about $75 each, and the check-over of the head condition is minimum bench charge of $75, plus any extra time if they need to do anything.

We have received Bullet Whisperer's cylinder head and have done the initial flow tests to establish a baseline performance benchmark.
The head flowed very well, and we have presented some ideas for improvements, for his consideration.
We will be discussing this shortly, I presume.

Sorry, no numbers coming up for public consumption on this one.

Great news, this endeavor can only improve the mill you are developing.

I am sure improvements will result from this collaboration and perhaps some of what is done might be of use replicated in some fast road going machines in the future, both in the U.S. and here in the U.K.
 I have also had visions of an 84mm bore, short stroked 350, with tuned 'Big Head', revving beyond 9,000 rpm with ease  and fitted in modified Crusader type cycle parts, like our current 350 racer. A 612cc with 'Big Head' would also just squeeze into such a rolling chassis - just imagine a Crusader sized race bike with around 60 BHP  ;D ;D ;D. Anyway - back in the real world and the present time, we should end up with a pretty handy bit of kit with the next incarnation of the 500 Fury Special !

This race bike is  getting some exotic mods!

It's gonna be really cool!

Had a nice long Skype conference call  from the UK again today. Lots of cool ideas coming out of this project.
