    I have a polished 112 w/ 90mm (NIB) I would love to get upgraded to a polished 122. Any possibility?

    Re: Maggie group buy

    I know I'm new and not frequently on this site but I tend to lurk around....What about the 112 and the econo axle setup? From what I've been reading it looks like you believe the econo axle should hold up to the approx 450rwhp and 425rwtq right?

    This is going to be a hard sell to the wife...baby on the way in December haha.

    Please send me what you think we could do. I'm going to have to do some research on the 122. Not even sure what the difference is to justify the extra 600.

    John Behe called me out without calling me out yesterday. I've always been very leery of heat soak since I like to track mah V. But he said heat soak will only happen when you overdrive the maggie...even on the track. Behe attacked internet forums as to the perpetuation of this issue.

    He claimed that if he tuned it right, with keeping the redline around 6100rpm, heat soak would be virtually non-existent...


    hmm...

    I think he said $4999 and $100 off for each group buy.

    I'd like to see some proof to back this up because I don't believe it.

    Though, a fully heatsoaked maggie will still put out 430/410+

    The argument John Behe was making is that at the top end of the rpm range is where the majority of thermal issues come into play.

    His point of view was that if a maggie is properly installed and tuned including an RPM redline reduction, and no change in pullies, that you would in essence reduce the heat soak problem by not generating nearly as much heat.

    This was in context of a road track vehicle setup where you wanted continuous long running performance increases, you could afford a few hundred RPM decrease to achieve a reliable configuration.

    I'm not sure that this would be relevant for a street setup or drag configuration where you needed maximum power.

    Hendrix,
    I tried to send a PM regarding my question above but apparently I either haven't be a member long enough or don't post often enough. Could you please send me a reply to my private email at npolczynski @ yahoo dot com. Interested in maggie + econo axle. Thanks.

    During my last track day, the one time I looked at my gauge, IAT was at 114*. This was in the infield. I was running the big track at Pocono. Two long straights at WOT.
    However, I do run Meth. I was planning to data log later in the day, but didn't make it back out on the track.
