triton...... same but different.
« on: Jan 06, 2013, 09:54:30 »
the w2 kawasaki engine in the slim line was sidelined as i need to build/buy a frame jig to widen the frame so i decided to slip in one of the two pre unit triumph engines.....

after making up templates and a dozen on/offs i have the 1/4" aluminum plates almost done..

I took the shell off of my racing snail thinking it would make him faster.

It just made him more sluggish.
