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.

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.

11  General / Coffee Shop / Re: BP's on: December 03, 2014, 06:09:29 AM
BP's are kinda like sprint cars, way more motor than chassis. Yes, they're hard to drive well, but at least you find out very quickly who has the skill and the cucamungas to be a real race driver.

From what I've read, supers are far easier to handle. Yup, they're fast, but so is I-90 through the Dakotas.  I have no interest in watching traffic on I-90.

I've run some upside down transaxles on occasion. Let's see, Ed was upside down at White Creek one year, Troy Larson was upside down in Fifield, Ed was again upside down in Illinois somewhere (but that was on his own mower).

In those cases, the upside down transaxles did not work well as the tires could not reach the track surface.

Did someone say beer?

14  General / Coffee Shop / Re: What exactly is this? on: November 19, 2014, 08:08:19 PM
I need that Winsor for my Pinto. Wait, that's probably an "M". Never mind...

15  Mower Building / Setup Help / Driveline / Re: Dedicated 820 Peerless Racing Transaxle on: November 19, 2014, 08:05:22 PM
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.
