  1. TSRS LM

    Im sure that was prob due to changing from the 4bbl to the legal 2bbl... I must say it does seem odd that a car out of the top 5 well really 2 were torn down for tech that doesn't happen much... Might as well of checked all the cars at one time but I doubt they ever had 4 of the top 5 DQ'd in the same night either... At least they are enforcing the rules some tracks only take the top 2 with very light tech...

    Uhm... HUH? I'm lost with that one... Jason did you check your %'s and weights earlier in the day? Were you that close when/if you did? If you were and didn't make enough of a change then you might need to own this one bud complaining about Jack or the scales won't fix anything... I have been with other drivers where the scales at the shop didn't match the one's at tech John Paul Kliewer's 22 Modified for instance. If we were close then we made sure to leave a enough of a cushion for Left side and total weight. It usually wasn't that far off tho from the shop scales.
  3. Congrats and thanks...

    Just wanted to congratulate Adam Torres on his first run in my old car. Getting used to a new car can sometimes be difficult if you dont know what to expect but you gave Frank a run for his money and we know there is still more there in the car...Ya did a heck of a job and keep it up... Also need to thank G Diddy for the tire and stagger gauge it really helped to get the car in the ballpark and once again congrats on your new little one...
  4. $5000 REWARD

    They had that race once this year when 18 cars showed up for Speedfest. Sure Naumann, Hudson, and Boyd were not there but Zach won that race too... I just hope for the tracks sake the cars that have come to take the bounty stay once the bounty is claimed... If you really want to make it interesting put in a provision that if 20 cars start the race and he starts from the back then he can cash in the bounty himself if he wins...I'm sure that would make it real interesting for the fans and drivers alike... Then again it probably wouldn't hurt the track to keep the bounty going the way it is since fan counts seem up and mod counts are up while the other classes level out.
  5. $5000 REWARD

    I have heard both sides of that... Just seems like out there those guys have a bit more motor...Guess it really just matters on what package they fall into when they come here... I would imagine someone with what HMP calls an open motor here vs Cola/Mobile car w/open motor they would have to add weight and lose left side%... Currently an open motor 2 bbl or 4 bbl mod is 2500 with 58% Left side at P'Cola or Mobile... add 50lbs for Alum heads... HMP Open Motor 2650 57% Left Side HMP Crate 2500 58% Left... HMP 2bbl 2525 57% Left... Dunno I would think seeing some of that I can see why a car from HMP can compete at P'Cola... Would seem (to me) easier for guys to go from a more restrictive set of rules to a more open set of rules than vice versa... How much difference does being able to add 1% for 2bbl and losing weight with a 4bbl and adding 1%(HMP) vs. losing 1% and adding weight (P'Cola/Mobile)... I forgot was Zac using the 2bbl option or Crate?
  6. $5000 REWARD

    I dunno if this should be turned into another thread or not but if someone were to come from out of state to claim the bounty ie Pensacola, Mobile ect. what kinds of changes would need to be made for them to be legal here... Just looking at the Pensacola/Mobile rules there seems to be some differences in some of the rules (motor, possibly trackwidth, left side %, to name a few) so dunno if there would be allowances to let them run as they are or otherwise is that the same elsewhere outside of the state? Or would it be easier for an out of state driver to drive for someone locally like Raymond (think he has a second car) or Long ect... Would be kind of neat to see if Lawrence Mikulencak has any inclination to run with these boys or if its been brought up to him...
  7. $5000 REWARD

    Thanks for the clarification. Good luck to all of the bounty hunters...
  8. 602 Crate Motors in Streetstocks

    Are they allowed? Should they be? Pro's - Con's? Just curious...
  9. Indy 500

    Judging from the in-car audio it didn't sound like he gassed it at all but you could hear the motor running... Might have knocked something off on the drive-train or it just didn't occur to him to hit the gas...
  10. $5000 REWARD

    You drove your ass off and nearly got him. Congrats on your run... And your right about how he races he is as consistant as they come at HMP and fun to watch... Good luck to you Zac and any of the drivers coming to take the money...
  11. $5000 REWARD

    If he is found illegal (light - ride height - ect.) does the winner get to keep the bounty? Will the bounty still go to him if he is not beat but has a minor infraction? Just curious...
  12. $5000 REWARD

    Just be sure to check the fine print....
  13. Indy 500

    Whats really amazing is that after hitting the wall he was still the leader till a couple hundred feet from the line... And still finished second...
  14. pure stock class

    Well the 24 has finally found a new home. I wish the new owners alot of luck and they will be out there for the next race... Now time for me to find me a new toy to play with...
  15. WANTED!

    I don't think anyone was holding anything back this weekend... McCurley was the closest before he pulled off and he was maybe a little less than a straightaway behind... Mormon finished 2nd half a track behind in a 16 car field... Go Figure...I think this makes the total winners payout close to 4k now...
  16. Dinsmore, Torres Win IMCA Features

    Now we got spotters in the pure stocks at I-27 Raceway?
  17. pure stock class

    Ahh its ok... Water under the bridge... Didn't think twice on helping anyone get a better handle on their car. Makes em easier to dodge haha... Was selling the car though deals fell though may just have to see how 'legit' my car is nowadays...lol... Prob would help to get it off the trailer first tho...
  18. pure stock class

    Depends on what your version of legit car is... If its built to the rules as they are written then thats legit. Just trying to get by with a car that is basically stock is going to relegate you to the middle of the pack... If you think someone is cheating or skating on the rules there is a $500 protest. The guys that do well are the one's that do their homework and get the most out of the rules. The guys n girls up front have done their homework and constantly work on their car not just set it in the weeds Sun-Fri... ie 99 9s 96 94 7x 88... Just sayin...
  19. TH350 in a pure stock

    I run a turbo 350 in first with 256 rear gears, in one of my cars. Its a winning car,so no reason you cant. In fact I am sure there are lots of people around running this same setup ! Good luck in racing ! Freddy The powerglides are smaller and lighter,and cheaper to rebuild. Thats why a lot use the powerglides. The Manual Trans is usually the trans of choice because of the reduction of rotating weight. The less rotating weight you have the more power you get at the wheels. Unless you run a dummy converter, a Turbo 350 or the Powerglide will be heavier. The other thing with the Manual Trans is depending on the track there are gray areas in the rules regarding clutches and flywheels another area you can reduce rotating weight and thus get more HP to the wheels. Of the 3 the TH350 is the heaviest I believe...
