Elektra Scherzo attempt.

Post by Jutte » Fri May 16, 2008 2:39 am

Just had to have a crack at a version of a Elektra Scherzo.
The CC was my usual oil filter bodies that I had used for
my other Elektra.
Well...unfortunately it turned out to be a fizzer.Tried all the ususal stuff... increasing/decreasing intake lengths as well as the tail pipe lengths...
different fuel settings etc.No banana.With compressed air blasting in you could barely 'hear' any 'sustaining growl' etc at all.
So I cut off the small diameter 'tail pipe' and slapped on a regular style tail pipe and it was into sustaining mode no problems at all.
Still it was fun and even if it didn't go as planned I thought I let you all know anyway.

lol -- I had completely forgotten that one -- it's going to be my new mantra.

Now I want to see the movie all over again.
