      So Im doing some research and found this.

      Its the worlds smallest nitro V8 and its 1/8 scale. Build by Ken Lisonbee sometime around 1990 and won at the GSL XII - May 3-5, 1991.

      Seems nobody has seen the guy in years. Anyone here know where he is or what happened to this motor?

    Nobody seems to know. Just kind of vanished several years ago. I heard he did a 1/4 scale Porsche motor also. I figured with the crowd we have here this is the best place to find the guy. Would be cool to see what he's been up to the few years.

    Here are some engines for you to look at; even a couple of supercharged ones.

    Enjoy!

    these have been favs of mine for awhile BUT being it only puts out 5.5 at 9k rpm and the baddest of the bad r/c motors out 4.5hp at 35-40000k rpm before nitrous or s/c its outragously expensive but still a great piece of work
