No Paul - I just went back through the dyno runs, and when the motor went to 6400 rpm (just before the blower belts kept breaking), the motor was making 859hp / 705tq.

The 805hp @ 6000rpm was repeatable, so I told everyone that number. I've made a couple of little changes, and the blower belts are staying on the motor well past 6000 rpm, so now I'm claiming the full dyno-proven 859. I don't want anyone thinking I have a woose motor.....

Now that you're back in the land of the living, any plans on finishing that Cobra???

The big dude is back.

I thought you must have left the country!
Tried ringing heaps, thought you may have moved again.

Must talk soon to arrange a catch up with the families.

Thumbs up

OK AC Andy



You have had your ride. We have done the 360's and now I get the phone call from the factory tenant.



Who left the rubber out the front



Had to tell the truth.....

It was Andy in his ute.

Good to catch up with you all on Monday.

Alvin, OZCOBRA and AC. Passed "Justbetter" on the Geelong Road heading back to Geelong late in the day - cruising in
his 4 x 4.

See you all soon

Doug said he had you going for a while when he rang you! He knew it wouldnt have been my car, not wide enough or long enough, (he he). Had fun in your car mate. I was very impressed with the lack of rattles and squeaks in it.

It was good to catch up on Monday.

Cant wait to get mine finished.

Andy.
