Both David Freiburger and David Vizard have done extensive back to back tests which proved....... little/no discernable power differences on a dyno.
Theoretical power differences are offset by the additional frictional losses.
As for Smoky Yunick = That is a correct quote that has a distorted meaning......
What he actually meant was.... longer rods flop back and forth less so there is less force trying to break them.... at least that is what he told us.
So Smoky said put as long a rod as possible into it.
