VTROTM for 2018

So here it is, a new year.
Interest in VTROTM this past year was less than enthusiastic. Totally understandable.
So moving forward, if anyone wants to try their hand at keep this feature alive now is your chance.
I can give you instructions for how to, or you can contact Wolverine for them.

I think she's dead in the water mate.

Thanks for your efforts. I got a lot of inspiration from this topic.

Cheers

Well if it is now dead I guess that means I'm the all time Grand Champion with 5 wins over the years........

For those that don't read Japanese, it says "you have the most envy-able pistons"

I've heard both..... so Roger has an email to find the correct answer but they are what was used in all the Mori engines (they only made one High Compression piston) So if they are good enough for a STG2 or STG3 build they will do just fine in my close to STG1 build =)

Still learning new stuff....lol after talking with Roger these are 10.6:1 pistons. there were 11.2:1 pistons but they were race only and were only sold to national race teams.
No worries though as they still will work just fine and for the price I got them for....well it couldn't be passed up =)
