I had 3 of the 4 bolts shear off the OE damper but at only 170whp and with a rev limit of only 7500. I guess this is the sure fix?

Cheers

I'm going to take a wild guess here, but I believe they begin shipping the first week of October...

The machined bits have been done for a few weeks. BHJ had an unexpected delay from a supplier needed for our dampers. Funny, he estimated they'd be ready first week of September so I added a month just to be safe. Now I look smart (that's rare). We should meet the published deadline.

Default Second production run

More dampers available!

We sold out the first batch much sooner than anticipated. Orders placed before today (October 5) should ship towards the end of next week.

New orders placed after today will ship around the first of November.

Take mine if you want. I'm still undecided on trigger wheels and have a motor in a million pieces. Mine should be in the early batch.

I want a picture of it installed and first-hand experience with installation.
I'll be getting one, just want to know on a 1-10 scale how much of a pain in the *** it is.

I want to see it running for 6 months at 9000RPM on a motor with a crank that hasn't been balanced.

^Don't stress the balancing. (I paid less , but not by much) I figure it will just make awesome more awesomer. I actually sorta hope with a balanced motor and the whammy damper I can run soft AWR motor mounts and screw changing rubber ones again. If funds allow I'll try both after I get it all running.

Show me a balancing job that affects torsional vibrations (which is the job for the damper)...

General vibration due to unbalanced rotating things is something else (radial forces, not torsional/torque).
That can be tested while free revving, torsional vibrations would be very minimal in that test case.
