    Chuck I presume you're #1 on the beta list? I was #1 on the preorder list after the betas got theirs.

    So are you saying it wasn't possible tony? The upgraded thrust option is somewhere between oem journal bearing and ball bearing toughness?

    Really good to see some progress here! I guess I've found the upgrade I want, though I'll wait for what the beta testers say.

    I'm not going to compare a thrust upgrade to a ball bearing CHRA that's like apples and oranges. But the alloy thrust and increased surface area will drastically increase thrust life. And it is possible to get ball bearings to fit. But they were so small they did not meet the RPM requirements.

    Tony do you have a vague idea when the flappers may come in? Do you think the turbos may ship out in early/mid February?

    Tony, do you know if the Stage 1 beta guy has installed his turbo yet?

Well a stage one pre order customer was in dire need and decided to forgo the upgraded SS flappers, and just run the risk of rattle in the future after we explained we could not guarantee they would not rattle without replacement. He understood so we built him a set and shipped them today. Since our Original stage 1 beta lost his car due to a WW meth kit fire. This customer has become out Stage 1 beta. We are hoping he gets them installed and tuned asap so we can see some numbers. I will keep you guys posted.

    He sent me the signed beta agreement today and said he received them yesterday. The agreement states they have to be installed within 7 days. So I am assuming they should be on there soon.

    I think he was saying there may be a conflict with the "installed in 7 days" part of the agreement if the timing on when the betas ship is immediately before or on the 23rd.

    lmao... yea that is a good thing, so i take the congtats with honor... we have a little one on the way, wedding date was sept 1... things change... & quickly.

    But wont change is me having atleast one car with 2 doors thats fun to play with... she knows and is cool with this... i cant wait for this change .... 8 years together so there will me minimal surprises, lived together for 5... im getting out easy IMO... 29 years old first baby right when i turn 30 this summer... im golden.. she'll be 4.5 months on our wedding day, shes a tiny girl and its the first one so shes hoping not to show but id prefer it lol

    but yea if turbos are sent right around the time of the wedding or just before it will be tough, however installer is local and i have a bro that can get it installed while im away but dyno, 60-130 would be a little delayed if it lands in that 2 week period
