    On EBay he says:
    "I have tons of used, new, and NOS performance and R1,R2, and R3 parts for sale. Please email me or call for your needs as I am making a transition of getting out of Studebakers. You can visit my website at www.solankiperformance.com to see the other products I have for sale."

    Too bad,I hate to see anyone move on.

        Dang, that's awful news! Here's a post from the racing site from just this last Tuesday, 2/12:

        Posted: Tue Feb 12, 2008 10:24 pm Post subject: High Flow Heads

        --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

        Here are some flow numbers from today on the prototypes with 1.9" int and 1.65 exh valves.

        .200 140 cfm
        .300 193
        .400 238
        .500 276
        .600 278
        .700 286

        the numbers are awesome and are in the small block chevy performance level. Exhaust side is almost equally impressive, but will take me a few months to tweak. Just thought you performance guys would enjoy the numbers.


        Nimesh, I've never met you, but I hope you change your mind; your good work is surely needed!

            Ditto. Between Nemish and Stephen Cade getting out of Studebakers, it's almost like having the rug pulled just as I'm getting started.

                    Nimesh is supposed to be fitting some flanged axles that he, Kerry Dancy and I had made here in the USA. They're supposed to be better quality than Fairbornes.
                    I'm not sure I "get" this. Have folks been breaking the Fairborne axles?

                    Here's a relatively low volume part...relatively expensive...took a lot of time and effort to have made. Solves the keyed axle "problem". Made by perhaps the world leader in after market axles (Mosier). Why the heck would somebody come out with a competing product?

                    I've installed the Fairborne axles. Fit like a glove. Good service. Quick shipping. Work like a charm.

                    Is there NO other Stude part that could have (should have) been reproduced?

                        Well, I bought the blower. I paid $1,000 12 years ago to have mine rebuilt. No HP parts, no beautiful paint. I also bought the power window motors and regulators and I don't have power windows!!! They both seemed like a bargain. Thanks for the heads up, Bob.

                            I remember a couple years ago Nimesh said that he wasn't going to be doing any more heads, but I see he's still building and selling stuff.

                            I guess once it gets into you it's hard to get rid of the bug I see Stephen is actually hanging out here and posting so there ya go... probably just decided that vending as a full time job was a PITA but Studebakers are still fun.

                            I just hope that someone's still doing good heads by the time I have enough $$$ to get 'em done.
