**edit** and anytime I've been beat, (often) I know it was my driving or lack of as the reason. Have fun fellas!!
Well put.

Is this for real or did someone hack Dax's account? I don't think he was offering you a sponsorship...merely telling you where you can buy batteries.

I never Said anyone Cheated, Just appears On some Peoples Motors Half the Bushing Appears to Reamed Out. I Did not think ROAR allowed Altering of the Bushings. Then again I could'nt win at our Track with a Modified Motor In my Car!!!

Polishing bushings isn't illegal is it?

I Think you are allowed to polish the Bushings. Maybe, someone with more Knowledge of the Rules could Help us on that.
It's Looks like they are using A pretty Gnarly Compound!! Looks like the Bushings Are about .128 halfway Across!!!!

reaming out the bushing is a waste. After a weekend you'd have to buy new ones. The bushings are broken in after a few runs anyway

I can't believe we go to the lengths we go to for Club Races. It truly is the Columbus Worlds every weekend at Platinum.

Thanks. I'm hoping I'm allowed the venture to Toledo. Was that a new Putnam you purchased? I've never had one like that, that I've noticed. Right now I'm running a Fantom version Monster and it was a bit tighter than the Putnams new out of the package. I currently don't have a motor sponsor because I haven't found anything out there that I couldn't do better with on my own. I'm not a motor genius by any means!
