    I'm 68 years old, I can manage picking up (strugling) a 14/71, the blower I got from Dan, didn't have all the parts in it as you can see in my utube pictures,I had to set up a block and tackel to put it on the engine, I'll say they weigh 50 60 pounds more than a roots,
    Also, how about just the TA/FC run the roots, and the dragsters keep the screw then you dragster guys will have a supply of blowers to buyfrom the FC teams, just an idea till some one steps up and makes another screw to compiet with PSI, It's a shame that theres politics in drag racing too! just saying.

    PS Don Hampton makes a 2 lobe roots that will put out 50/60 pounds of boost and it don't have any strips in it just billit rooters,I had a 8/71 that put out as much boost as a 14/71 3 lobe stripped one.;)

    go for it

    Nothing stopping anyone from running a roots. read the rule book. 2200 lbs with a roots. run a converter with a roots and you are at 2150. you pay your money and you take your chances!!!!

    Here we are a year later. Did anyone notice at PRI that DMPE and SSI are working on screw chargers now? From what I was told they had to be exact copies of the PSI or NHRA won't even look at them. I guess that is better than nothing and I hope both of them come through and are able to produce a product.

    You can send the blower to Cantrell and I will take care of the cert for you.

    Dale" I rotated the earth" Brand ran a 5.60 and also cured global warming while he was at it....Thanks Dale...lol (Ironically this was done with a PSI roots)

    The roots blowers have come a long way and are still advancing, the only downside is now you have to spend $20,000-$30,000 to get a billet case competitive deal because of overdrive restrictions. I will be running a roots just so I don't have to deal with all of the headaches between the PSI and NHRA as well as the lack of top alcohol races. The PSI roots are great blowers but I have been hearing horror stories on delivery times and such which may have been remedied by now, also they are a bit pricey.

    I think the simplest solution would be to allow Darren Mayer to build his screw blower as they originally were going to let him do, this would give racers an alternative to the monopoly which would help keep prices and delivery times reasonable as well as making sure that customer service stays up because then if there is a bad experience then you go elsewhere and they lose business. I would also love to see Darren's psycho helix roots in action, we may find that it can compete somewhat with the screw perhaps with a 50 lb weight break or so.

    Just some thoughts,

    How does Cottrell do it if PSI says they are the only one certified to do it.

    Hopefully PSI has their shit together.

    While Kevin Cantrell is a business partner providing us with quality performance coatings, he does not work at PSI.
