Sounds like you have great plans for your 190E. Also, I forgot that you folks on the "right coast" (as opposed to us on the "left coast") have to worry about running 2 sets of wheels -- one for Winter, one for Summer. We in California just run our Summer wheels year 'round
. You mentioned RC Imports? Is that THE RC Imports in Rockville, MD? I've dealt quite a bit with the "R" in "RC" -- that'd be Rick Ellinger. Nice guy, and I think they'd do you proud if you had them build you a motor. With his racing outfit (16Vs), he has a lot of track time behind his work.
