Default 1/5th scale V8

I don't normally pull threads off of other forums but this is one of the coolest things i've seen. Unlike a Conley v8 these are all machined. I can't even imagine the time and skill it must take to design something like this.

It's a very long thread but part by part pics and alot of info.
Very cool!

Wish I had the machines & skills to do that ! These are amazing.

Conley's new Stinger 609 series is very cool too. Check his stuff out here.

As much as I like them, This is Out of my budget. For right now anyway ...

I work in Glen Ellyn Illinois where Conley is located. I would never have guessed he had a machine shop like that going on there. I'd heard about his work decades ago. Nice stuff but too rich for my blood! My ESP Zenoah will have to suffice..lol
