in this (planned) application, the ss o rings only stick up a tiny bit and are forced to bite into the mls gasket.
another way is to run the o rings with more stick up, and have a receiver groove cut into the surface on the other side (block or head) of a solid copper gasket. but that way is a bit of a pain.

no it was just a stock bore cometic MLS gasket clamped down with APE 11mm studs at 75 ft lbs. i think ss o rings with the same setup will hold it together.
Koenigsegg already beat you to the One:1 deal.. Check out their One:1 car... Same as your bike 1 Hp per 1 Pound of weight.... Not a bad goal or bad company to be in..

I've read about that car it's unreal in what it can do! Thanks for the link was very cool hearing/seeing it run. To be a millionaire and have real access to toys like that, ugh, maybe in my next life...

There is one significant difference between the two.
Scott has a 1 HP per pound
The Keoningsegg is 1hp-to-kg curb weight

AND 1 kg = 2.2 pounds

So though it's sounds close,
close only counts in horseshoes and hand grenades

Scott WINS!!!

2004 zx12 1290cc 191std HP 495 lbs
2014 zx14r 195sae HP 520 lbs
2014 Loring AFB 14 runs over 200mph
with a best of 208.1 in 1.5 miles
and 204.5 in the mile.

There's a lot you aren't sure of. Then there's a lot that just flies right over your head as well. What's new?

They have a lot in common actually. A dream for starters. I follow Koenigsegg, and they make a damn fine automobile for the performance market. 280mph is pretty damn impressive for a car. I bet it's a rush. If you followed the company and where they started, you would know that Koenigsegg and Scott share a lot in common really. Both are reaching for the same goal. Impressive acceleration, incredible top end, and making a name for themselves in their respective circuits.

You can't just love one aspect of performance motorsports. Whether 2 or 4 wheels, where these guys are going with their machines is....nothing short of sweet madness.

Agreed, when it comes to insane performance 2wheels always has been an always will be without a doubt where my heart is. But these new crop of SuperCars is nothing short of incredible. What their doing is truely out of the realm of what a car can be an do. It's just awesome! That being said, if I were given the choice to play with the Koenigsegg on a track or play with Scott's comp bike on an airstrip, yea I'll be on the airstrip every time ;)

My comparison was actually a compliment to Scott and those that aren't punks that took the time to read and comprehend what they read realized that.. Hence the remark... ( Not bad company to be in ) Scott has stuck to his goals and improved a ton since his first attempts to turbo the 12R. I'm sure even he'll admit he's learned a lot from his affiliation with his employer since being there. Nothing beats exposure and doing when it comes to learning. He's not making the most power from a turbo 12R but he's in the top 2 or 3 on the planet in that game. Nothing to dismiss or sneeze at for sure.

There will always be the Hibs of the world that own the fastest mouth on earth and nothing much more. I spent more on Titanium bolts and nuts last week than he's got in his whole pile of rigged up junk.. But I'm not posting how to threads and pictures any place anymore due to people like Hibs. He can learn on his own dime or in his case pennies. Except for responding to his mouth I never mention him any place because he's irrelevant to me or the sport. As opposed to him and his constant name dropping and bad mouthing. It must be terrible to go through life feeling so inadequate that you can't stop trying to compare yourself to others or thinking that owning the latest greatest thing sold is going to earn you respect in a couple of other's case, so desperate to feel important in whatever field they have chosen that they don't own a home and finance up to their ears searching for that acceptance. I respect Scott far more than those like I have outlined above. He's stuck to a 15 year old platform and continued to adapt the latest advances to in proving older is sometimes meaner. Good job Scott in case I haven't made how I feel about your bike and accomplishments clear by now.

You're the guy coming in his thread, and immediately talking about some million dollar car, then make a half ass attempt to try and congratulate Scott at the end. Any constant "bad mouthing" from me is only towards you, and calling you out on your Jack-Assery that you constantly bile out in any post here. As you stated yourself, you don't share info, you don't contribute to this board, you just come on here to spout shit. You clearly know nothing of me, my finances, my bike, my life, or anything of the sort, yet you always like to try and act like you do by trying to throw personal life into people's online/motorcycle topics. What a life.

That's all I'm going to say. Sorry for the clutter in your thread Scott, you are the man!!!

Thank you, yes i have learned a ton from Richard, hes a good teacher, and every now and then he even learns something small from me.
I cant afford to push the limits for a dyno queen. i believe this bike is strong enough to do what i "need" it to do. I would love to have a 600+ hp 12 and claim the most powerful in the world, but everyone knows the real dyno is the race track. spinning up a storm on the first shake down pass and getting within 5-6 mph of the fastest 12 ever, leads me to believe that im doing something right. its only going to get better as i refine what i have. this is no cookie cutter bike, and will need some adjustments to see its full potential. tech actually joked that finally they werent checking another turbo busa lol. 250 mph appears to be well within reach at this time. when i have that i will set my sights higher.
