Here's a pic of Glenn Hall's ( D&D crew ) latest creation.

info from Glenn:

It runs! Got sled out for the first time, yesterday. Feels really fast. Cooling system seemed to be keeping up alright, blasting back and forth across the lake. Parts required for this conversion:
Motor mount kit and steering rod from D&D
M1000 engine harness, hood harness
M or F1000 engine, guage, ecu, ccu, primary clutch
Polaris 12.5 cc belt (1065 or 1073)
Modified M1000 pipe(s) and can
Assorted coolant hose pieces
Stock firecat fuel pump and power valve servo work fine.
Maybe could get by with firecat guage, if someone knows how to reprogram for different tach pulse
Also, could maybe get by without the ccu, if we can figure out if we can wire in the firecat voltage regulator.

The only draw back / pain I see with this is changing the belt, but I guess for HP to Weight you can live with tearing off the exhaust after ever run because it's sure to be a belt shredder L! bowdown.gif

This 04 f7 has D&D's 1200 top end kit installed on a stock 07 F1000 bottom end. Has never been dynoed, but same setup that just made 235hp at dynotech, but without the advance timing, to be more nitrous friendly. Haven't weighed the sled, but surely has gained some weight, due to the heavier engine, drive clutch, and electrical system. Still a light sled, though. Initial testing is showing performance on motor (no no2) similar to F9ss package with 50hp nitrous shot that was run on this same sled, last year. Nitrous testing will begin later, this week. Motor runs on pump gas, but will be running race fuel when using the nitrous. Belt change not as bad as it looks - no need to remove pipes. Engine has been moved forward slightly, to a 12.5" c to c. Using a 1065 polaris belt. No belt issues, so far.

With the Bancrofts ( new owners of Project FXR F7 ) purchasing racing products out the ying yang, I'm sure we'll see D&D up for a visit soon. We've had a very successful year so far in promoting and providing their products through www.sled-werx.com. Everyone is pleased.

Glenn... would be KooL to have weighed the difference between all parts while doing this build to give you a base from the Stock F7.

Thanks for the info..
