P-Zero 1/2A Buggy conversion and fix

As you probably know, I have been converting and selling the P-Zero buggy
engine by de-stroking to make 1/2A rules. I have had several of the engines
break the crank, which is not good.
However I think I have the handle on the fix, and I am asking any engine
shipped before Oct 16, to be returned to me and I will modify the crank and
return the engine. (Or you could disassemble the engine and just mail the
crank.) Even if you have run them and the crank did not break, please send them
to me for the treatment. There are about 30 of them out there that may have
the possible crank breakage problem.
This is a great 1/2A engine when the crank stays together.

F1E Team Selection Results

Results of the F1E Team Selection Contest,
held at Holloway Mesa, Lost Hills, CA, Oct 15 &16, 2012:

Pl      name              AMA#      Score
1.     Robert Sifleet   18326      890.90 
2.     Peter Brocks     84018     859.50
3.     David Saks      382450    775.29
4.     Tom Ioeger      94350    762.64
5.     Richard Wood   43748    626.28
6.     Dave Parsons    6280     530.80

The event ran quite smoothly as the Wx was quite accommodating.
Ten rounds were held over the two days as per schedule without
delays or need to move site.
Bob Sifleet led from the 5th round to secure top spot.
There were only 9 flights that did 180 sec maxes for the 100% score
of the round.  That indicates the conditions were light & variable, with
weak lift generally.

My congratulations to the team & alternate members.

F1E Finals Contest Director
