    They do everything else, why not.
    Honda makes some good stuff no doubt but the interface between the pedals and masters seems ...meh. What is going on there? Uni ball in the middle?

    Edit: I know brake bias front to rear but..maybe its the photo making it look like the pedal swing is on an angle, nvm.

    Probably just a mockup for a photo shoot. Should be an interesting ride though

    Ok. I'll bite. Obviously it's in a truck due to it being front engined. My question is why is there only one massive header tube and why is it going forward? It looks like a turbo flange with no turbo

    Turbo? Just tacked together too.

    Yeah I found it on RDC. They lifted the motor from their Datona Prototype which is a twin turbo 3.5L V6. I wonder if SCORE will finally allow boosted gas engines. Josh Daniels has run a twin turbo V8 in a TT in BITD. If they don't allow it that exhaust setup will absolutely suck. I also wonder if it will be a TT or a 7200. Honestly it would be a mistake to run it in any class other than TT. All of the other classes combined only get 25% of the media coverage TT gets. Plus, the only boosted engines allowed in 7200 are sealed ecoboosts. I highly doubt that a full kill purpose built race engine would be allowed to run in a class with stock ecoboosts. My bet is TT but it probably won't be a front runner. It's running 37s in a class that is dominated by 39s and a naturally aspirated version (as the picture shows) of a purpose built boosted V6 with a torque killing exhaust setup. Maybe SCORE put the Kabosh on the twin turbo and is only allowing a single turbo. A crossover tube to a single turbo might explain the pictured exhaust setup.

    I spent all day dicking with a waste gate crossover tube to tighten a single oil line. It's a hating airplanes day.

    The bias bar can be that angled if the ball is off to one side fairly far and notice that the lock nuts on the piston rods aren't cinched - if one of the rods isn't threaded in fully it can cause the offset.
