EDGY CYLINDER HEAD SHIPPING UPDATE
Good morning! I have had a couple calls and email asking for an estimated shipping date on the cylinder heads.
As I have mentioned before, the single biggest delay in the process has been the fact that we unexpectedly decided to significantly improve the design of the heads. Once we received the patterns from Earl (EDGY), I flew to California to meet with the pattern maker to discuss his recommendations on how we could improve the design. Part of this process was sawing up two existing EDGY heads, as well as two stock factory heads to critically analyze their strengths and weaknesses. The pattern maker at the foundry suggested several improvements to the design of our Gen II design.
Understandably, but also not expected, this delayed the casting, but will result in a markedly improved end product.
I spoke with Javier at the foundry in California again this morning. As you may have heard, it has been extraordinarily hot in California. They even had to shut down the foundry for a few days over the past few weeks when the shop reached 139 degrees last week!
So, long story short is that we are still pushing hard for an end of July shipping date, but due to the fact that we will be at Bonneville about that time, I think mid-August shipping is more likely.
Sorry for any inconvenience. If this poses a problem for you, please let me know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
