    What's New at TurboHoses

    We begin building a new thread for TurboHoses.

    We're very proud to be part of the community, meet new people and build these incredible cars daily.

    Lets start off with the huge success this year, Grapeman's 2011 racing.

    That was an unbelievable accomplishment for all involved. It's things like this that make all of our cars that much better and more valuable in the eyes of the rest of the high performance world. Beating on any race car for a full season and having no DNF's and 12 out of 12 wins is remarkable. A testament to the skills of the whole team and to the real potential of the car, IMHO. I'm, for one, really looking forward to following Robert's exploits as he goes after another successful season in 2012. And he's starting out with the same engine he used for all of 2011!

    We should start a pool on how many more races that engine will last. Even though it still has the AER rods in it, I say, given how well it has done so far, at least 3 more races.

    Hoover has warned me that we may be on borrowed time, but compression is the same as at the beginning of last season in all cylinders, so who knows? I sure hope it's more than 3 races. I have two kids to put thru college!!

    i'm one of the realistic types.
    We already have valve train on the shelf, bearings and one block ready to build.
    Spare set of rods haven't arrived yet.

    It's definitely been a great year for the Noble.
    If we can manage the time, you will see DV out there as well.
