Been there and done that. And it was one of the best roadies my guys Ed King and Troy Werachowski and me ever took.

Great track, great track crew, and Paul Krueger gave me a lot of Bud Light. We had a great time.

Don't know the dimensions of anything on a vanguard, but an ideal rod is 1.8 to one. This is center to center on the rod holes divided by stroke.

That's a time bomb.

.030 is asking a lot considering the sleeve is approximately .090 wall thickness.

There are some options, but you'd have to buy me lots of beer for me to tell you.

Let's leave my cheese out of this.

I'm all confused. Again...

River Bottom is absolutely the best track my guys have ever raced on. The crowd, the officiating, the track  itself, all top notch. And I drank lots of Paul's beer.

I put Bentonite on crackers and feed them to Ed. He thinks it's caviar.

I'm not Bert, as I am in slightly better physical condition, but yes, it probably would.

Ed, you may be in better physical condition, but I'm way more handsome.

The Bentonite liquifies with heat, Al. So you may have a bit of leakage (like me when I watch Ed drive my stuff) at speed. But when cool, you won't have any puddles. Even with the STP added, the stuff hardens up.

The STP isn't there for lube. STP had a lot of tackifier, so it helps the Bentonite adhere to the gears of the box.

Tecumseh/Peerless used a lube called Bentonite. Good stuff. Still available at various small engine dealers. Bentonite liquifies at higher temps, but alone doesn't stick very well.

I've been running Bentonite for years in my 820's for years with a bit of STP mixed in. About 6 ounces of the sticky stuff will do.

Use it in any transaxle and you'll never have a lube related failure.

Call Tim Isky a cam recommendation. I'm thinking a #3 grind, which is pretty tame but gives good low end torque.

I agree most will not explode.   It is the one that does is the problem. 

We are talking about doubling the rated RPM's   We are the only Motorsport on the planet that thinks this is OK.    Or would even try this. 

Huh?? What's this got to do with the amount of torque an engine produces?

It needs more stacks.

I use Flint water in the water injection system on my Pinto. Makes the exhaust smell like a Dow chemical plant, yo.
