Well, at least you're getting lots of reads.

That fits with Bert's new nickname, Dolla Fordy-Nine.
Thats way better than Fifty Cent.

Ed's just upset that I, as race announcer, now introduce him as Eddie Mustaffa King and can give him no explanation for it other than it fits so well.

We have extraordinary fun at our races.

Actually, Ed, who has won a lot of races and championships over the years, doesn't care if it handles or not. He just wants enough power so the he can see God. Well, that and helmet stank.

I think having a job is key.
I have found that people who need to go to work on Monday tend to drive less like sausages.

Forgot about that one. Ed and I have seen plenty of that. And, Ed just texted me that the usage of cool catch phrases is imperative.  Ed would share some his personal favorites, but he doesn't feel like getting banned from Heymow right now. Maybe tomorrow.

You need a good nickname and a hot wife and/or girlfriend. And buy me beer.

Bert you sure that was a back flip!!! I remember it a bit different.
KFC n Cheese curds man what a meal!! And cold beer.


I guess it was more of a crappie flop backwards, taking the barstool with you. I was just trying to be nice. The building shook when you landed.

Ok, I will admit my thought was incorrect, it is KFC, not Taco Bell.
But, I guarantee he will chew your arm off to get to a pile of deep fried cheese curds.
I actually saw it happen once near Green Bay..

And then George backflipped off his bar stool. Amazing agility for a fat guy.

Red  belts are good, these are better. If Ed can't break, stretch or chunk them, you know they're good.

I will argue with you all day long, i did the test years aago. Depending on the gearbox of course. The peerless 700 always has twelve gears that rotate when powered by the input shaft. The gear box only has two. Even if you only race in third gear for example all the other eight gears rotate and cause friction with each other ultimately robbing power. This is the complete opposite of a foote for example the only gears that rotate is the gear that you choose the sychros engage the gears and the others dont rotate if not chosen. Back in the day i used to turn my 700's straight into gearboxes taking all the gears out except one and locking it.  Cool

What I should have said was an 820 is more efficient that a 700 trans. Considering I got my info straight from Peerless years ago, I'll argue all day long, too (820 vs. 700). We don't run all the gears in the cluster either, so the 700 has no advantage in that regard. Plus, we don't have the additional parasitic loss created by a chain, two sprockets, with maybe a tensioner. If you are talking an RAGB, that would be correct, it is more efficient than an 820, or a 700. But I believe the discussion is about shiftable boxes.

I kinda like Javelins. Even this one. Ah, the sound of a built 401.

Just like a truck a buddy of mine had. Built 351 Windsor, which made about as much power as an unbuilt Chevy. Lousy with rust, so when he got on it, the box sides would flap in the wind. Kinda like Ed's plow truck.

You know, there are nights I can't tell the difference between Bud Light, Miller Lite and lighter fluid, but that lab of mine had his act down. Had to put him down a few years ago at age 13. Pretty good for a lab. Still miss him.

He'd have to give me at least 5 Colts if he's getting my dear Pinto.

the gear box will consume less power

Beeeeeeeeeep!!. Wrong, Grasshopper.
