that vmax is a screamer.

My 2000 royal star has the same V4 engine with 4 carbs. The royal star is toned down to only 74HP, but it still takes off like bats from hell in 3rd gear WFO.

Indeed. I imagine Maine has some spectacular roads to get lost on.

For mad scientists who keep brains in jars, here’s a tip: why not add a slice of lemon to each jar, for freshness?
