what works in mini generally never works in touring car (mini require less torque) and what works in touring car isnt fast enough in a mini.

i could reveal more... but then i would have to kill you. there isnt any open memberships right now in the inner circle of silver can tuners club.

You could reveal about the different type of water to break the motors in and the special cleaning agent to clean the motor after every run ??????
Then you could be a member of the Platnumn Elite Silver Can Tuners Like us old farts that have been tuning on these motors since the start of time????
Those Black Can Motors explosions last year year at the TCS Nats were exciting to watch down the long Tamiya Straightaway when the motor would let go after they were geared to the moon and the car would roll to stop in the infield and burn to the ground!! I bet Fred will have the same motor rules for the 2007 TCS Nats???

I really liked the meltdowns on the track... looked like the real thing.

Although Doc M looked like he was playing with shellite and fire and singed eyebrows in his Sport Tuned Nats/Mabuchi pit area. . .

I better shut up before my Mabuchi Lodge Membership gets revoked for TMI.

I forgot about Doc's "540 flambe" in the pits last year!! so that's been Doc's big secret all these years on getting the Horsepower out of these little gems.
"1 thing for sure "Doc Mertes" knows how to extract the last ounce of horsepower out of those motors! Hey Doc do I here a 540 Motor Tuning Business forming in the near future? Afterall with the F103GT class and Mini and GT3 540 Motor Tuning will be in "HIGH DEMAND" No, that would be in violation of our contractual agreement with Hickman Bros Racing? I will have to review with our lawyers on that issue? I do know Doc held a 540 Motor Tuning Seminar @ Frederick, MD indoor facility and it was standing room only!
Please, Doc check with us before you give away the farm! "Oh well" you can't blame a guy to exploit a little free enterprise.
Hope to see everybody @ Trackside, tic,tic,tic,tic,
P.S. I heard a reliable rumor that the 2007 TCS Rules will be posted anyday now????????????????
sh.

No worries, Steve. All of the 'real' secrets remain safe, although the motor clinic was a lot of fun (ask Litsluv the next time you're in Frederick).

That flameout at the Nats reminded me of an Audi I owned about 30 years ago. Nice ride once you got it going but this was in the early days of ECU's and solid state ignition systems, and after the Audi got a bunch of miles on it, it didn't want to start on a cold morning unless you used ether down the carb (also pre-FI). Cold morning + in a hurry to go skiing + ether + sveral starting attempts = two fewer eyebrows, no eyelashes, and a very singed mustache. ...to say the least.

Looking forward in the most positive way to seeing the rules!
Doc

whaaaaaat? you guys use water to break it in?

(pure speculation on my part) but i dont think we'll see the black cans at nationals this year since they used the GT tuned (25T) motor this year at TCS worlds.

Hi Mike,
Between Lambert's Cafe, Corky's BBQ, Biehl Street and oh yeah TCS racing, how could I miss? Unless the rules are not posted by then. . .

Will that mean you will be driving your Silver Shelby to Memphis?
If so can I have a joy ride in it!
Keep your stick on the ice.
Jeff

You know it...a 100LS. Named the "Most Repaired Model of Automobile in America" shortly after I bought my '72 used in 1976. Couldn't give the damn thing away- literally. When we finally sold it in 1980 the first guy was willing to pay $125 but said it had to be delivered (fat chance- $125 cars DON'T get delivered!). Second guy gave us $200 and drove away like he was in love. Said he'd always wanted one. Hope he made it home safely...

OK, back to our paid programming.

I'm getting in to Seattle on Friday morning for the TCS race & am looking for a hotel suggestion for Friday-Sat-Sunday nights. Does SIR have a deal with a local hotel? Ideas? Anybody coming in from out of town who needs to share?

Mr Mertes:
Townplace Suites
18123 72nd Avenue South
Kent, Washington 98032 USA
Phone: 1-253-796-6000
Fax: 1-253-796-6050
They are just around the corner.
I will ask Doug to Call them for the TCS race, we have had deals with them 2 other times. I think it was about 80 a night. If you call them ask about an Seattle Indoor Raceway discount, as Doug may have it set up. But I'll talk to him tomorrow to make sure it gets done.

Doc, I wish I had a good car story. The only smoke I blew out of my car was antifreeze, when the head gasket went. Made me feel like James Bond or a bug fogger.

Although I do miss my other car which was a 71 Nova. Great for making donuts this time of year... mmmm... donuts....
One time I did pull a Homer and got pulled over for doing donuts (many in fact) in an empty lot. I parked, got out, locked the car played dumb and told the officer I was looking for a place to park. You could see my handywork from the fresh snowfall lead up to my car. He let me go. Duoh!

For the most horsepower in a 540 silver can motor you nee to contact TJ in Huntsville Al. No matter what silver can you may have his will put yours to shame. You can see what I am talking about in Memphis this year or ask a few people that know of him. Some may say good things others may not say good things depending if they are running one of his motors.
