    New Riva Stuff!!!

    Some interesting new stuff here. I noticed they took a different route than R&D for their engine cooling kit. Instead of adding more water pressure, they replaced the restrictive OEM fittings & came up with a way to make the flow adjustable with different size rings to replace the thermostat. Some nice engine upgrades too.

    Wonder if they're working on a set of camshafts, don't see why you would need upgraded springs and retianers if you haven't increased the lift any.

    On Picture 2: Are we looking at the intake ports or the exhaust ports on the cylinder head?

    From what I've heard, there won't be a need to upgrade the springs unless you're turning ~8900+rpm. It must be the intake side because the exhaust ports are waterjacketed.

    At the world finals they had arear seat mod for letting the heat escape. The design was not as good as Chris MacClugage, asit does not allow for air to come in forextra cooling.

    Glad to see RIVA and R&D are producing so much stuff and at a fast pace.
    Going to be a long X-mas list this year.
