I am in my last year of building Formula SAE race cars and am planning
ahead for next year.  I want a small high power engine to build a open
wheel car around.  After seeing your Dyno curves I have a few questions:

1) 	How much does your motor weigh?

2)	Where can I find good info on the gear ratios and cam timing?

3)	Have you built any motors with a wider powerband even if they have
	less peak power? 

4) 	How long will the motor last if it sees peak power for most
        of the time it is running?
