|bigballsofpaint||Just checking to see if there was going to be anything in the works. With my current mods im happy with the power, i need to do brakes/suspension/wheel & tires/roll bar before going back to the motor so it wont be anytime soon.|

Hello Everyone, just checking out the forums this morning and came across this thread. yes, we were at nationals, but we could not get our trailer up to the top of the parking deck and worked outside in the lower parking lot. As most of you suspect, the Slingshot and other platforms are really hot right now and the majority of our focus is on those other platforms that are still being produced. That being said, we are still working on Solstice/Sky products, but at a slower rate than in the past. The supercharger kit casting we needed did come back, but the first batch needed some tweaking and those are being redone. The turbo kit we have been developing for the Slingshot took a lot more of our time than we thought it would also, which pulled any development on the Solstice/Sky during that time. That turbo kit for the Slingshot is up and going now though and we are waiting for the new castings for the supercharger kit and then on to the other projects for the 2.4 and 2.0.
Anyway, that is a quick update, we will of course announce anything new when it is ready to ship, but have no timeframe we are giving at this point.
Hope that helps,

|Robotech||Also, Hahn Racecraft is another option though right now they are in the process of moving and setting up a new shop so I have no idea how long before they are up and running at the new place.|

|wspohn||If you are looking at that sort of power goal, you need to do a lot of internal work - special forged pistons, new rods and implement an auxiliary fueling package to get enough gas at higher rpm. And yes, the larger turbos will be necessary with all the replumbing and external BOVs that entails.|

|bigballsofpaint||So i guess im wondering, are the WERKs turbo upgrades our only option essentially? I know RPM does the big wheel upgrade but my end goes is 450-500 crank hp, so it seems the werks stage 2 or 3 is my best bet. Its a good chunk of $ for a turbo alone but it is what it is.|

|Robotech||RPM is still around and they may be doing a few more things for the LNF since their focus is on the 4 cyl Turbo Camaros that use the descendent of the LNF.|

DDM showed up thursday. Had some prior problems as I understand it.
I had talked with Dave about the exciting news, but was told many months ago that is was based around the 2.4 engine, which make sense as that is what the Slingshot uses. I do not see them stopping what they do, but they will follow the money. The slingshot is a hot item for them. It took me almost 6 months to get my turbo ugrade from them. Dave told me a the beginning they were no longer doing it, due to problems getting the blow off valve. But if I could locate one, he would do it.
I have moved on to PAW for engine support and Robo and I are working with PWerks Dave on finalizing the tune.

|wspohn||Dave, I own several cars made in similar numbers to the Kappas. They continue to be supported by vendors despite being made 50 years ago or more. Several of those vendors also service other models and say they will continue to do so as long as sales continue. I'd expect DDM to continue support for as long as parts continue to sell at a reasonable rate.|

|44thSKY||Correct me if I'm wrong, not knowing Dave of DDM, but I didn't think or hear that he was even at NASSAM2018, Black Hawk. No intentions of starting a rumor, but has the transition already begun?|

You have to keep in mind, that as time moves on, the share of business that is Kappa related gets smaller and smaller in terms of the overall business that DDM does. Eventually DDM will quit supporting the Kappa cars, on most things. Only Dave and Ivy have a clue when that will happen.

|bigballsofpaint||I feel like if they came out with something at nationals it would be posted by now. Wondering if there was some hold ups? Im planning out a turbo upgrade (down the line) and was interested to see what they were going to come up with.|
