2004 600 Micro Season :
2004 Season: NMMA Multi Championship #9 for FTZ 600's!!
Paul Esworthy called us in the spring and told us he wanted
to try a Yamaha R6 for 2004. After some discussion over whether to use carbs or fuel injection, we decided to dyno
test and find out if there was a power difference to make the injection worth the trouble and expense. The testing
showed that the carbs made the best power and the reliability and consistency was obviously proven by Paul winning
the NMMA AA-Multi class National Championship. You have to finish well, in a lot of races, to win this title. This
is the 9th consecutive National Championship for FTZ built 600 motors, carbs and pipes! Thanks to Paul and his
excellent crew and sponsors for having continued confidence in us! Also a big "well done" goes to Tom
& Richard Fitz of Bullrider Chassis,

Jake drove Broderick Burke's very hooked-up
car to a new track record and a very impressive feature win. Brod's car is equipped with a R6 with our big-valve
ported head and FTZ exhaust system, same as Scott's and Paul's R6s. Jake's "A"class R6 (2nd in feature)
also uses our new exhaust. Great Job Guys!
