In Texas we don't have to give a reason for Firing an Employee. Nor give Compensation. Sorry my friend.

Building a small, high rpm engine with the perfect bore, stroke and rod ratio is very impressive.
It's like a highly skilled Morrocan sword fighter with a Damascus Steel Scimitar.....

Cubic inches is like Indiana Jones with a cheap pistol.

Re: Ok Boys and Girls it's Storytime



Well I got the Drivers side header fixed up and coated. I also spent a couple of hours cleaning the truck up. Changed the oil, lashed the valves and added a little timing in hopes it will run a little better in bad air. It's all ready to head to Topeka next week for the Double Divisional. This will be my 6th and 7th race out of 8. My next and final Divisional will be in Noble, Ok the first weekend of October. The week after Noble will be the National Event at the Tx Motorplex. Then it will be time to tear down the motor and freshen everything up for next year.

Re: Ok Boys and Girls it's Storytime

Well as usual I'm my own toughest opponent. Topeka didn't go very well. I didn't gain any points. So here's a little summary of my own undoing.

Houston- I made it to fourth round and lost a good race. My .017 light wouldn't get it.

South Georgia- I give up the stripe 2nd round by .002.

Ennis#1- I gave up the finish line 3rd round by a ton. Totally on me! Stupid driving.

Ennis#2- I scrubbed E.T. before I caught my opponent 2nd round. Stupid

Tulsa - I was just lucky to make it to 4th round. I'll take it.

Topeka#1-I gave up the stripe by .004 to the same guy in Ennis #1 3rd round. I would have started making points 3rd round. Duh. Oh and I was .000 to his .032 on the tree.

Topeka#2-I go .001 red 1st round. I thought the .000 the day before was fluke.

I showed up in Topeka with a chance at winning Division 2.5 rounds out of 1st sitting in 3rd place. I come home in 8th without a chance.

Re: Ok Boys and Girls it's Storytime

With all that behind me I'm down to two races left. The Divisional in Noble, Oklahoma the first weekend of October. That will be my final points race. the week after is the Fall Nationals at the Tx Motorplex. I made a decision while I was in Topeka. I've been really wanting to try a 4.30 gear for awhile. It's just such a PITA to change with a Dana rear. We found a set so Tony is going to set them up for me. I just keep thinking if I ran right at 130mph on a second gear leave wide open it might pick up a few. At the same time it will kill some starting line ratio. I guess we'll find out. If I can get it done soon enough I may go do some testing before Noble.

Re: Ok Boys and Girls it's Storytime

Thanks Greg. I hope it works and doesn't turn it into a pig. I think it will work though. It will hurt the Hot Rod side of me if it slows down. Either way it will race. If it doesn't back in go the 56's. Lol
