I found basically no difference in efficiency when I went back to a standard spring setup, but again that could be because of springing. I also found that it magnified tolerance differences between powertubes since the valve retainer doesn't guide as much as on a stock valve.
You need to test newmaticarsenal's kit with the huge internal dimensions.

THE-SHOOTIST Anyone chubbin' like me for this?
mailmanmike Since Monday! That's more than 4 hours though, so according to those cialis ads I should see my doctor.
tlane77 I think for a non-chemical chubby it's 6 hours before its time to see a doctor. So you should be good for another couple hours.
splattttttt I wasn't goin to google "chubbin" because I assumed it had to do with fat. The lard type, not the fun stuff. But what ever feelings Jeff's experiencing, then they must be of the fun like stuff...
