I can easily find the NW corner of my property. That's where my neighbor's dog craps all the time.

Al, the only time I use the clutch is when I am starting moving, or coming to a stop without crashing.
It's nothing but pure Tecumseh power that provides the chaff.

Belts last longer without clutching, too. If you tried using the clutch on corner exit with Rick James (our engine), it would create smoke similar to a John Force burnout.

You mean a Panhard bar. That is used with suspended vehicles, not mowers.

Grooving isn't necessary because that procedure is to help keep tires cool. You'll never get enough heat in them for it to be a problem.

Did a little sipping back in the day and found no difference. Side bite usually isn't an issue. Forward bite is, but that's more a problem with compounding and/or track surface.

That baby will be under the ol' Christmas tree this Thursday. Can't wait. Hey Eddie, I'll bring your mower to the track in the back of that bad boy, yo!

Intek is best bang for buck. It makes alot of torq with not that much money involved. I wana say 2000 to 3000. Vanguards you need to spin it to the moon to make power. Kohler is like 4000 pluse.


Really??

Well, whatever it is, it's warring, so you know there's going to be trouble.

My plow truck is still uglier. But it shifts.

Hope your new one still shifts, Ed, because you're putting your car hauler behind it and retrieving my baby so I can give it a proper Viking funeral.

You can thank me later.

Al, Al. Al. No 5.4L for me. This baby's got a 4.2L V-6. FEEL THE POWA!!!

Okay, so now Little Eddie's making fun of my 393 thousand mile F-150, which just cooked its second transmission.  It's almost like Ed was driving it 'cause something broke.

Paul, you're confusing the Fiero with my favorite car of all time (besides Pintos), the Renault Fuego. Now that's some real French cooking, my friends.

I loved driving my BP. 

I hated racing it with the guys who are out of control. 

I'd prefer to remembered a gentleman driver than a winner. 

You all need to come to Wisconsin. We'll run twenty lappers green to checker with nary a yellow. Most of the yellows we have are from Ed breaking something different again, but very, very few crashes. Our top 8 will never touch you. And none of them are running junk. Lots of good Vannies and a few Indians with good chassis, except for Ed when he breaks something.

The numbers in BP started falling off the minute George Herrin said he was building a Supermod and retiring from the class.
Sorry folks, but he is the pied piper, and the mice followed him to Supermod. The mice, and a few rats too... heh heh.

Will G be back on a BP in 2015??? Watch!

Chuck, still the best damned driver out there, pretty much confirmed what I said. BP's are hard to drive, and therefore not just an engine class. BP/Super Sport classes separate the wheat from the chaff with respect to drivers.. Mods are TOO easy to drive, and the chassis rules mean they all pretty much handle. It's engines racing other engines, not drivers.

It's not always the drivers fault with flips, as Paul, who is from Iowa and doesn't know any better, would have one believe. We've been on some pretty tough tracks over the years, tracks that a super mod would never run on. Those tracks are like a scorned lover. They'll reach out and bite when it's least expected. Had one of those in Union Grove this year, causing Ed and Paul Kellner to go elbow-over-tea kettle together. A mod would have probably done nothing more than high-center on the bump, spin its wheels and be done with it.

BTW, Paul, ever see the best dang race driver ever, A.J. Foyt crash? I have, and it was his fault.

When Ed is driving my twin on a grass track, especially a bumpy one, I tend to drink more beer.
