longer bad?

Unread postAuthor: neilman88 » Wed Dec 07, 2005 12:19 am

i have a 1" width/14'' length chamber, and the sparker is in the back...i have to spray in 2 sec worth of right guard...im thinking thats bad because my chamber is so long, so i have to use up and lot of fuel. If my chamber was 1 1/2'' width and 9'' length would i spray in as much? i know it will be just as i good i did calculations but im just wondering if i would have to spray in as much and could it possibly increase in preformance.

thx =)

In my experiences ,a very small chamber ,like 1" is ver hard to get ignition with, 2" is much better ,longer chambers seem to be harder to ignite. I have the best luck with short chambers,and my largest ones which are 4" seem to perform the best and have less misfires.

yes if you want a large increase in power, kick it up to a 4 inch chamber about 2 ft long and install a chamber fan, it will circulate the air really well.

Well man why just not to put in a chamber fan i think your chamber is big enough for it and it wouldn't matter if your chamber is long then.

Get a small motor (brushless) and attach some foil to the shaft on it, and hook it up. They have some pretty small motors.

Beebs, I have a computer fan that fits inside of 2in pipe.
