    an old friend of mine by the name of vince chu would bore and port them put pipes and such.. they were fast as hell. he was the founder and president of the american scooter racing association. i believe he quit doing vespas and went on to racing ducattis but he built some mean vespas..there are still a few of his race scooters floating around town.

    here are some images and videos of the latest evolution of our wasp now with liquid cooling, 98cm3 and with much more power than any kit available for sale or even known parma kit with 130 cm3 directly intake to the cylinder by reeds valvle, achieved the charged by our power engine, described by the Spaniards present at the last race (24 hours Abrantes): the vespa coming from another planet

    some videos of our last race and win the 24 Hours of Abrantes (Portugal)http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=chfskIZkuSA

    this video evidence had been going for several hours but a clutch problem forced an entry in box to swap for a new clutch, with one more disc (5).
    that time was that I was riding the scooter,barely had time to remove the helmet lol can see the bottom of the scooter to work simultaneously with Antonio, during our little repairing Antonio drops the nut of clutch trying to pick it with a magnet but without success until I scream for all who were around us:
    we turn the vespa unlike the nut will come out!
    We were already in place before this first entry in the box, but with this loss of time when I resumed the race was already in fourth place ...

    some more links to photos of the race:

    in the next race would be great to have competition coming from all over the world as it is the race of the vespa wolrd days
