I have a hypothesis that dual plugging is more of an advantage at lower RPMs when there is less turbulence to spread the flame front then at high RPM where turbulence assist with rapid combustion. Couple this with the idea that spark advance is stopped at higher RPMs because turbulence takes over and spreads the flamefront more quickly for us.

I wish I had more to add than that, but that is what has been rolling around in my head as I think about buildin my next race engine.

The only way I can/could afford to do most of this stuff is doing it for hire. I have never had my own TIG welder, my own dyno, my own machine shop or my own real sheet metal equipment! Get out there and do some good work! Listen and learn along the way! And READ!
