    That slot accepts the Adjustable Powerbands.

    Wish you had a little more low end torque? Maybe you want a high revving formula1-esque screamer? KaleCoAuto's Adjustable Powerbands are the perfect solution! The power bands are made from titanium-injected rubber, with high grade 440 fasteners. Six links are included. One band is for horsepower, and the other for torque. You may use more than three links per side, but extreme caution should be taken!

    I honestly can't answer that one.

    Those end up getting filled in on my cases with Marine Tex. Just some of the stuffing I do on mine.

    That pic I posted isn't my case. Its actually one of Sharp's big bore stroker builds. That is why there is metal shavings all over, from the machining for the big big bore pistons and the extra stroke of the crank!
