I need that Winsor for my Pinto. Wait, that's probably an "M". Never mind...

K car? Did someone say K car!? I need a K car in case my Pinto breaks. This will not affect either my beer or race budgets, both of which rival the national debt.

Ed and I are hoarders, and we have several 820-017's that were bought on the cheap back when the 017 gear set could be had for $125 and new 820's for $100. $400-500 for a new transaxle is a little steep for something we don't need.

Given the current obsession racers have with 700's, I don't think there would be much of a market for 820's.

Or maybe we just don't want our competition running 820's.

Ed never buys. He can't afford my habit.

Technically speaking, what's being described here bears little resemblance to a sprint or midget in/out box. It's just a single speed transmission. In the mower set-up, you still have a clutchable belt. Sprints and midgets are direct drive with no clutch, thus the need for push starts.

Now that's a good reason to drink.


It's just one of many I have at my disposal....

In Wisconsin, 50's is shorts and flip-flop weather. Bert begins to sweat at 51.3 degrees.

And thus the never-ending need to replenish precious bodily fluids with beer.

We're getting uncomfortably close to a discussion involving ergs. And ham.

Doubt you'll find anything for it. Best to go with another brand unless you're a machinist capable of making your own flywheel and rods.

We run normal ARMA build rules and tires studded with #6 sheet metal screws. Last year, we had 3 ice races, and they counted in the season points. Put us at a real disadvantage because as Ed says, "We blow" on ice. Spend all year catching up in the points after 3 last or next to last finishes for the BHI #1 and #2.

For this year, we have a plan...

From a very reliable source who shall go un-named, but an engineer at Peerless, the 820 is more efficient in transmitting torque than anything else Peerless makes. That being said, transaxles are slow. I would like to see everyone running a 700

We've traveled some over the years (ED, Troy and me), and we've NEVER gone home without the big trophy. Come on up to Wisconsin, all you super V-twins, and get your REAR kicked.

Just because a turd has peanuts in it does not make it worth more than one without.

Same with corn?
