Tony - What up dude? How ya been? You've been quiet for a while..how's the Dunlap's doin?

(Is Sean still whipped? hahaha)

mafia - All told, there are about five people in the U.S. that I'd trust to start grinding on my motors. Anyone can talk themselves up to be a good engine expert but most of them are just inflating themselves.

Magazines find it VERY hard to justify running articles like that because they know it is going to lead to kids ruining their engines.

The amount of work done to my engines is VERY small, and done only to gain a little bit of engine efficiency (gas mileage). Your best bet is to leave it stock.

I run a port/polished cv that I did myself. Done a couple of motors. I actually love the little cv, and more so since it's been worked on. I did it just for the reason already stated, b/c I was running against all novarossi motors. Truth be told, I've got a brand new nova mt.12 in a box downstairs. I like the cv so much I just don't want to change it. And if I did, you know what?? Those same guys will still beat me. Because they are superior drivers. But the cv runs really well after the work. Hits jumps better, and accelerates better. So it does help me. I ran most the year just ported and not polished. After polishing everything is when I noticed the most difference. The cv is great for doing work on and practicing, it's cheap, and parts are cheap. But as for a os cv-r, or tr, or a nova, I wouldn't do anything to them because they are already built to be a race motor.

OH yeah....BTW, is it normal to literally break the handle off your wrench when trying to take the screw off of your flywheel? I stuck the wrench into the big bolt that holds the flywheel on the output shaft and twisted until the handle literally snapped! I couldn't believe it.....It took some time, and a few more wreches, but in the end I won. Maybe I'm using too much thread lock....at least I know the flywheel will never fall off or come loose!

Would it be worth it to put a sealed bearing in the engine? The one that the con-rod rides on is open on one end. Its still smooth and I don't think its going anywhere....but I don't know if its supposed to be like that or what.

That bearing is supposed to be open. The inside of the engine is otherwise sealed and that bearing is open to allow oil from the fuel to keep it lubed. The front bearing is/must be sealed.

Dub,

Haven't seen Shaun for a while, he doesn't really race anymore.... he's just kinda dealin' with all that being 19 years old stuff. I don't want to speak for him, but he felt to take it to the next level he needed to be living in SoCal and running with you guys! Tiffany still races though and I see her and her dad all the time

Doin' the real job thing, which is cool for the race budget but I only have a week of vacation until next August! So maybe one big race next year.

Also working with Team Brood on developing some exciting new products for the electric world......stay tuned........

Electric racing? What's that? Haha!

Shaun needs to get his priorities straightened out..I'm 18 and still find time for R/C He's pretty much right about the SoCal thing..hahahaha.

Save your week of vacation for the Reedy Truck Race! It was nice to see Tiffany and Jim again this year, she's getting faster. I told her she could borrow my back up gas truck but she was too nervous..hahaha. It's cool to see her keep racing and start beating all of the guys, they were all fired up.

I think Pro Mod Truck replaced her as the most competitive class though, it was craziness.

Nice to see you guys sharing information..you're all learning very well...haha!

mafia - It isn't uncommon for people to break wrenches like that. It's also not uncommon to see people using a pair of channellocks on their allen wrenches trying to loosen or tighten the clutch nut.

O-Doggy - What up bro?! Still racing?

mafia - hahaha..you don't know the half of it. I get myself into sooooo much 18 year old trouble it's hard to believe I have time for racing

O-Dog - No kidding! It's been in the 30's every night for too long. We went up to Hemet last Friday night and it was absolutely miserable.
