Silva Racing ?

Post by makoman1860 » Sat Jan 28, 2017 1:34 am

So long story short, I had gotten a dyno off ebay, and the post office decided to sit on the package for almost a month. It had become almost funny trying to figure out all the places this thing went. Anyway it finally came and after about 10 seconds of running it went poof. I just busted a gut figuring it was cursed. The seller though felt really bad about it, even though it wasnt his fault, and sent me a goody box to make up for my having to rebuild the dyno. It came today and there were all sorts of neat things in it, a couple low turn brand new armatures, a couple of motor timing stands, a few Novak chargers, some old AE parts........and this 4 cell motor break in box. Made by Silva Racing "the racers edge". The cells in it are Sanyo 1200SCR. Anyone ever heard of this outfit? The fellow that sent it was from Reno. Im thinking late 80's early 90's?

Sorry...that wasnt so short :)

Well I got my own answer to this.....which made it all the more interesting. I was writing back and forth with the fellow I got this stuff from, and he mentioned that he had gotten it from his friend, who was the brother of Dyane and Darryl Silva. The oval racing and speed record guys. They were working with Mike Reedy, and there is a good chance the 6 turn armatures I have now were made for speed runs. Now to me....thats cool!

That is cool...but even better is dealing with someone with the class to make up for your misfortune, even though it wasn't his fault.
