Royce and others,

Why would flame front be any different for a flat top .105" down or a normal piston .010 down with a 22cc dish, they both have a total of 86cc's chamber volumes at TDC. To me it seems as both would be the same. How much does quench really effect in the real world? Wouldn't both these pistons respond the same? Royce I hope I don't sound like Im arguing, Im just trying to understand the physics involved here.

K-star mentioned his friend ran .190 down. with out problems.

If anyone has built motors with .060" + quench please post here and give me your opinions.
