Not sure if USAC will follow but just got word, 2009 wf motors have to have a new 1/4" thk alum plate attached to the rear/firewall side of the engine to keep parts from injuring drivers.  Anyone else heard this? evidently 2 motors grenaded in reg 5?

also new wf gear boxes will be available in april.  what we all need another box?? 3 out already, now after 4 years they bring out there box? hopefully it will bring down the costs. 

just passing some info on.  not sure if USAC will adapt or not.  all just FYI for the good

Ziggy installed one on my motor when it was refreshed a couple weeks ago.

I believe someone said on the other forums that the motors that grenaded were moded WF half motors.  I don’t see a WF with the rev limiter installed coming apart that easily or being an issue but a piece of aluminum can’t hurt anything.

It's all about proper installation. First I have to broach 3 holes along the bottom side. Insert our offset "keways" to be used as pegs. Thread a nylon brake line through the mounting holes and hang it on the wall. Then the "keway" pegs can be used to hang our 3 year old seat belts on. True genius.
