Golf-tee revisited

Well, it looks like the golf-tee would be the mod dejour this weekend, here's my approach, a simple machinist clamp, in this case a light-weight miniature machinist clamp. Three minutes to accomplish plus it is easily reversible.

How's the sound improvement on the 135? Is it just during idle/low revs? Sound clips please? :biggrin:Makes the little monster sound far more manly upon startup and at low RPM.

It does sound better.

I used a 5/32 BB and it took me 2 minutes to do and worked perfectly.
