I just do it for the beer afterwards.

I can hook you up with 3 cobs of corn, a 2 gallon gas can with a broken spout, a couple used pair of socks (no holes though),
an empty 6 pack of Billy Beer...

You drank my beer?!?!

BERT, you mean steering with wheelbase.

Yup.

Build a Tecumseh!

I am the mass master.

There may be a SLIGHT difference of weight loading on the mounting bolts of the engine. The side with the head hanging out may have a bit more weight load than the opposite side, but it would be minimal. Not enough to worry about.

Now, about late model dirt cars with "lift bars" and all the other stuffs. Sorry, but physics says that's a bunch of hooey. They say lifting the body under braking pushes the chassis down for extra weight. Where is that weight coming from? The Body pushing against the sky? Nah, it's all an exercise in roll steer, helping the car turn with the left rear overloaded by increasing right side wheelbase and shortening the left side (LR tucked into the bodywork).

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.

Kazakhstan has some cool billet performance parts for Trabants. NOW who's cool?

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.

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

Robbie does well against others. His mower handles well. Hmmm. Robbie has a boring motor. We've spent years improving engines and working like crazy to keep the chassis up to the motor output. Something gets improved every year. But they're still scary some days.

I haven't complained about the money. My complaints are that we have too many classes and that the modified classes are no longer lawn mowers. Adding billett engine pieces only serves to widen the gap between real mower based racers and the fabricated fakes.

If the money involved in running 2 twins was too much, I wouldn't whine and ask for claim rules. I would simply run a class. I could afford.

Bert

PS. Ed wants me to buy him a 410 sprint car. I'm not whining, but I really can't afford that right now.

put a claims rule on the motor of $2000.00 that would stop the big money spending

You'd also lose 95% of current BP/Super Sportsmen class mowers, and 100% of the super mods. Heck, you'd lose better than half the Mod X/CP mowers.

If you don't want to spend money, there are classes that work just fine.

Huh. I think Chuck just called me a fat a**. Thanks, buddy.

With nitrous and water injection. Or maybe those could be different classes.

And just for the record, I have fabulous hips. The chicks all tell me so...

Paul, would one of the new classes be based on combines???
