    The CX is called slurry pump because these old pumps never broke.<br>They work always in the same speed, not fast... but never give up.

    <span class="postbody"><br><br>we built one for a guy in australia that had 105hp at the wheel. we built a custom set of fuel injectors and opened up the intake and exhaust ports and used bigger stronger valves and made a custom exhaust that could handle the new setup. the final bill before shipping was around $20,000 and it took a year to complete. he was thrilled to say the least. we are talking about building a kit for the cx so more people can have fuel injection but so far its too pricey for the entusiast groups.<br><br>back to the reason im on this forum... lol<br><br>i used cottonwood for my slingshot. anybody ever have problems with this type of wood? it worked welll for me but obviosly i havent shot it yet and i dont know how it will hold up in the long run.</span>
