Re: Quickest Cars on Tiresmoke

Had the digger out once this year @ 42. I left REAL easy (I planned to but the plan wasn't to go THIS easy) anyways I was a bit nervous since last year I bent the frame on a hard landing - this blower motor is MUCH harder to launch) anyways with my all time WORST 60' of 1.7 I went 9.15 @ 156mph. Had...

Re: DIY press fit con rod install

For a race motor that's coming apart for any reason - floating makes the most sense. Cost isn't much on a new build. Having the option for easy disassembly and parts swapping is worth it. For a street motor I personally couldn't justify converting one way or the other. A press fit deal does require ...

Re: Chip off the old block

Just too update this old post. I finally got the car out again this year for the 2020 RocknRace. Only got one pass in - left like a grandma coming from church (that was in fact the plan) although I left a bit easier than I really wanted and while cutting the WORST 60' of my life (in that car) a 1.7 ...

Re: Rock-n-Race

I saw the advertising, but didn't head out there. Was it a cool event? How was the music? Did you camp? That Tailgate Tormentor is great!! -Dave I've been there a few times - it's always been a good time. They have a swap meet too, it's not real big, but hey a great way to kill a little time when t...

Re: Rock-n-Race

Tailgater Tormentor! That's great. You should post a picture of that... 154mph has to be way faster than you were going before. -BP I was mid 140's before so nearly 10 mph better. Also this pass I left in high gear - so there's a LOT left on the table. I've only made a handful of passes with the bl...

BP, Ask and you shall receive! I only wish I could have taken a pic of some of the expressions on their faces when they saw it up close!

Re: Rock-n-Race

Yeah THAT part sucked. I think I musta tweaked it a couple days earlier as I was crawling around it as I was welding a couple more uprights in, but it didnt hurt right away. It started acting up AT the track! I was like SERIOUSLY??? Get in was bad, but getting out was REALLY bad. Even bending over t...

Rock-n-Race

So did anyone make it out to Rock N Race @ 42 this past weekend? I drug the dragster there and made one VERY easy pass. I grannied it off the line (evidenced by my 1.7 60') and then rolled into the throttle leaving in second BTW. And STILL ran a personal best 9.15 @ 154. Just for reference - the inj...

Re: DIY press fit con rod install

Fred, My first motor rebuild was a small journal 327 Chevy. It had press fit rods, but I took it to the machine shop as I was still under the impression then that there was "magic" involved. Last two motors I did both also had press fit, the turd motor in that nightmare MG were press fit a...

DIY press fit con rod install

Hey Guys, I thought this might be helpful if you've never done this before. Background: I am putting together a "fresh" motor for my old convertible. An old Rambler straight six. A 195.6 OHV to be exact. Always wanting to learn a wee bit more (or maybe SAVE a little $ ) I decided that I'd ...
