    HAS ANYBODY HERE FLOWN A KOSDON 29MM J1000?

    It was LDRS 15 when Greg Muri fired an I800. Pretty sure Kosdon east loaned him the casing.I seem to remember only one of the grains being inhibited. That motor was so loud and short..with the burn ending so abrubtly..that you could hear the echo roll across the trees. :)

    Great Find! According to that long ago Magnum Ad..it had a "small Pinkish Flame". Ross even called it out as... "before White Lightning"..

    It was a nice Spank Motor! made a really cool sound with minimum diameter rockets..(dopler)..We (I?) used to love sniffing the Iron smell on Vulcan Motors..and sniffed every reload grain I ever had for that matter..LOL! I always thought the 24mm G200 was a Suicide Estes Motor..Shred-O-Matic..

    Like a 38mm smoke bomb...Not a lot of thrust but ton's of thick "Smokey Sam".

    Jason's Motor Porn Thread

    We should start a seperate thread on the I-800..LOL. I cant remember the NS but wasnt it around 360+?..I remember Greg Muri firing one off and it sounded like a shotgun echo off the trees at Orangeburg..Greg said there was no delay just an epoxy plug? was it even one sec burn?

    Jason...I estimate the issue of HPR was around 1983(Edit: 1993) ..The Magnum ad had a very young Ross Dunton standing next a NCR ASP 4" that was a special run........also mentioned were a "Special Run" of Aerotech G-80's that were described as the original formula with a Pinkish white flame and...

    Thanks Jason and Bob! What a great chunk of History to fill in..It gives the Tripoli numbers before 5000 a chance to fill in the blanks....What were all those mystery Motors during the 80's?

    Firestar E-match igniter kit

    Some have slivered a small Blue thunder re-load for an ignitor for "M"s the dowel will usually exit a larger motor ..I have used those folded double dips for up to any K motor and a Kosdon "L". I have heard of flyers dipping a small balloon in the pyrogen..

    Unknow Motor Manufacturer

    But the green Lacquer color was clearly visible..that's why I mentioned it..not Thermalite..also the tubing was bigger to fit the Visco..I can't scan the picture or I would.

    Unknow Motor Manufacturer

    I gotta ask..Wayne and Kathy are seen in old HPR mags in Danville showing off Red Anodized snap ring motors with what looks like a green visco fuse in a plastic tube ignition..anyone else remember this?..It was either the first attempt of The Iroc or the second..did they really use a squib to...

    Anyone else remember the 38mm original LOC Tristar?

    JD..those are some heavy ass motors....they might have cracks by now but Wow! to those that don't know this was The Largest Black Powder motor commercially available (Maybe Ever?) and pressed into aluminum tubes. :shock:

    Turbine powered Go-Kart

    I agree with Mark..right away I was cringing about his back tires..(and the fronts for that matter!0..but i appreciated his building it and making a fairly decent exhaust..this is his "Boiler plate'..he could modify this or move on or lose interest completely..remember also that he wasn't out at...
