my mild engine is for from boring, like I said I hold my own with the big dollars motors

That just proves that is isn't all engine.   

Guess we better put a claim rule on the complete mower.

Maybe for you. It's not for me though.
When I ran single cylinders, we had some of the strongest ones around. Have the trophy's to prove it, and you can ask anyone who was on the track with them.
You couldnt even bribe me to race one now. Well, maybe if it was a really good bribe. Simply put, they bore me.
Our Tecumseh's are less big dollar than many would believe. They are just well thought out. The fact that we put a great deal of trial and error and thought process into the builds, where someone who puts forth no effort could then claim them? Pffft. They better bring boxes, because I'd be launching the rods through the heads before I let that happen.

Anyhow, do I feel billet heads should be allowed?
Nope.
Like I said earlier. Start with stock OEM head and block castings.

If you can't afford to play with the big dogs then don't. Either make a name in a lower class to get good sponsors or stay with what you can afford. Racing isn't cheap, never has been, just so happens mowers can be cheaper than other things.  As the story goes, if you ever find yourself in a fair fight, your tactics suck.  Doesn't matter the money spent on speed, handling will win in the end. If you just want to be faster, take up drag racing.

Guys your missing my point I don't care if someone wants to put thousands in their motor.
All I hear is it cost big bucks to run the super modified, that is simply not true. I cant compete
with people dollar for dollar but I'm competitive with what I have. If you are going to complain
about the cost of this class the best way to keep it down is claims rules. I just put $2000.00 as
an example because I have less than that in my motor. Sorry if I stepped on any toes out there.
This sport for me is about the friendships I've made with all of the racing family around the country.

YOU DIDN'T STEP ON ANY TOES! THIS HAS BEEN AN ON GOING TALK FOR A LONG TIME. BUY RULES CREATE MORE PROBLEMS THAN WHAT THEY ARE WORTH. SOME JUST HAVE TO WIN AT ALL COSTS! THIS STILL IS A FAMILY SPORT BUT JUST LIKE EVERYTHING ELSE A FEW WRECK IT FOR THE MANY AND THE MANY ARE JUST TRYING TO KEEP UP! WE ALL ARE TRYING TO REINVENT THE WHEEL IN OUR OWN WAY!

Al, you're wrong! I do this stuff to get away from family. By the same, the Mrs. gets away from me, too!

Bert has a good point. Going to the races and getting away for a while (so family members don't hurt or kill each other) can be a good thing. But i guess that would still make mower racing a "family" sport.  :lol:

My toes were not stepped on.
I'm not complaining about the cost of mower racing at all.
I think Bert only goes to the races to hang out with me and commingle with the cool kids.

Actually, I've been contemplating doing more family things to get away from Ed, but my wife will have nothing to do with that.

Bert actually want to hang with me due to the fact I am huge in Japan.
Bert happens to be a big deal in Kazakhstan, which is no where near as cool as Japan.
