Wanna see the new clutch design...........

Gonna make some changes. But I gotta figure out how to hide them if it works so I can work with 3d on design changes tho. I got some Dragbike ideas that will change the racing scene forever.................

So opinions are asked. What you guys think of the ignition ? I got a real clutch like a real Dragbike so why not add programmable ignition and a launch 2-step box ?????? It's $600 but it's only money right ? Lol.

Oh yeah i got me a burris slick and dwt magnesium wheel also for the rear. Will get the wheelie bars and axle made this week also !

I'm officially taking engine options. Dyno cams will not ever do any machine work for me ever. I need a motor with 3/4" shaft and 20+hp ????

Just shave heads for cheap....and when someone sends you a whole engine...keep it!

Joe...check for a PM from me. I joke around a lot...but when I get serious...I get very serious. I just might be the only person in Texas to get not only a refund on a conviction, but a letter of apology from the Game Warden who issued the citation with one very carefully crafted certified letter.

Sooo...you can be bitter...and vengeful...or get satisfaction...up to you buddy!

My block is supposedly getting shipped back already. We will see.

When I talked to him prior to sending it off. It was $40 to bore and $80 for a sleeve............where in the crapola do they get $180 for a set of valve seats and only one size up on one valve ???? It's not even for both valves or any parts whatsoever. That's labor only. I would like to see the price breakdown but he said it softly and swiftly and I didn't catch it.

I guess on the bright side everything is ordered and in route to make a complete roller minus brakes and powdercoat.........I guess.

Personally I would've just put a high load of nitro in a relatively stock engine of course nitro is $50+/ gallon, so I don't guess it really pencils out.

Well we have wheelie bars almost done boys. Just a few more welds and the roller is almost complete. Still waiting for the engine I want to change motor mounts and the steering stabilizer to show up..................


My build quality gets better every year I think. Whatcha think so far ?

Well they are done along with a few controls and the tachometer bracket also. Got a few things mocked up already. Gotta go get some bolts tomorrow for the rear wheel and hub. And it's officially a little bit under 8' total with the wheelie bar for reference.
