Pretty cool to see that kind of innovation in the old FE's, I applaud the effort. FE's have never been about bang for the buck, that is pretty obvious. I've seen the FE shootout at Mason Dixon, hearing the Booze Bros turning 8500rpm with their stuff was amazing.
Guys who run FE's also like 16ga shotguns, 1911's, four speeds, single barrel bourbon, wool socks, and a good English Setter. There may be newer whiz bang stuff out there, but there's something cool about nostalgia that can't be explained.
