darryl has produced a 37+bhp motor on a 225 no weld but no-one else has, so other
tuners ask how he's done it or want port maps and darryl refuses, think i'd be reluctant
to share my secret aswell if this would be my line of business, cheers

keep up the good work daryl
In other words it's the green eyed monsters fault that this thread turned to s**t

I don't see what relevence someone's activity on a FS1E forum has to this one and I for 1 am not interested in reading why he may have been banned.

Well I know Ive been away for a while due to Personal reasons and not really input for a while, so I thought new year new begining etc etc
When I posted the pics of what I have done in past and present I didn't think it would cause such a stir, just thought it would open up a good debate like the old days Hmmmmmm Thought wrong there :lol:

I've been playing around with 2 strokes for 30+ years and tried many things good & bad as a people that know me, can vouch.
They also know how mad I am about the need for speed done in a Traditional way ie no welding.
I tend to keep myself to myself, but people do come to me when they want something different.
I would say that I am a garden shed tuner and have always been, its a hobby that I love and has cost me a lot over the years :evil:

I'm very open in what I do and if people read back in the early days of this site, they would see I openly give conceptual Idea's on how 2 strokes work and the maths to go with it, to Dan, Sean Eden & Ric amusement :lol:

Just to say I've been doing mods like this for some time with good results, I would never say Ive invented anything new as most stuff you see has been done in one form or another in various 2 stroke engines round the world & history.

If people think I've walked over their toes in some way or other I'm sorry, but these pics show my handy work and some ideas I've been playing with, over the years.

I have now had chance to read through all this and the other thread and there is some brilliant stuff coming out here if you read through the rants ;). Which is what I thought this forum was all about. (not the rants)

People have their own views on whats right and wrong in the 2 stroke world which makes for good debate.
One thing here is not to dismiss what people say, but to try and understand why they believe in what they say

f@ck me sound like a philosopher now :lol:

Please lets get back on track :D

If its made of Metal Fettle it !!

a good balanced post from smithy , an example to all ,
id like to add that ive read many of smithys postings and become a fan, i can see theres a fantastic depth of knowledge and understanding of the workings of the 2 stroke that even lots of commercial tuners dont fully appreciate , im sure it will be rewarding him well in his various builds

ok then ,glad we are putting all this behind us now and so getting back on topic .
The so called "darrell ports " are good and do work for a TS1 /imola etc ,but I always thought that they were just a poor substitute for proper boyasen ports and cos RBs have the boyasen ports anyways I,ve never tried it with that as i thought that there was no reason to.hence why our sprinter motor hasnt got them ...
also ,
and because i have never tried it myself but do understand how it may work ...has anyone tried the so called "power porting "method out on a reed valve lambrettta ...using full skirted pistons (as in no holes for 360 inlet ) but cut back on the inlet side to say 200 degrees plus ?
