NO EXCUSES was a conservative "650 HP" and PURPLE HAZE had a set of 750 (I think) Cobras that later got bumped up a bit with some big blowers. Kind of nuts if you really think about it.
Fully agree w/ ya here! Konrads would be great.
Also nice to have a bit of that weight forward to keep it a bit more flat. But engines and drives would cost 60-80k.
(15-20 per 600hp engine, and 15-20 per konrad drive w/ tranny and gimbal +)

So, what would it take to buy no excuses to make it worth the while??? Instead of just buying new?
