A friend of mine knew I wanted one... And I'd likely never get around to it... And don't have the skills to do it well...

So he made one for me! :mrgreen:

Sweet!

One obvious flaw: it needs a wider base so the massive torque doesn't flip it right over when you rev it :P :lol:

Man, that is lovely. In 2019, I watched Dave Mueller pop open the throttle on a 300+HP Slant with a base about that width.
