I was going off typical rules of not to be longer than the wheelbase on my regular Dragbike stuff. It's 36" and the wheelbase is 44". But yeah most are really short but that makes them unsafe also. Cause it can come up and off the back tire really bad. And I'm planning on alot of power so I called it safe.

Man that sucks about DynoCams. I pretty sure Poboy has a team of Texas lawyers that almost won a case once.

Let the dogs out Doug! lol

Bike looks great!

After the whole engine thing I've been moving slower. But I got the steering stabilizer done minus one weld. And I acquired another rare dirtbike to mess with til I find a engine.

1983 Suzuki Sp250 for really cheap and it runs like new............

Not a team...(had a team of Cancer docs...but) just one laywer...but I've only spent an hour and a half in jail and never went to prison....so...you KNOW he's good.

Could have been charged up to 22 counts federally or by the state or both . Plus another felony by the State. Case dismissed....felt like O. J. that day!

Update on engine build............

1. I got it back today finally !
2. I called a buddies machine shop which does car and drag car engines to ask where a small machine shop was on that small of bore. And what do you know he said bring it to him and he can get his boring machine down that small. He is only worried about getting it clamped down properly. So the build should be officially a go again.

So maybe a rethink is in order for the engine choices.

This Briggs is gonna be in the $1xxx range by the time my hp rating is achieved. So I'm thinking and seriously considering a 250cc 2-stroke engine instead. It will be half the price and have double the power. I'm trying to make it legal for racing at the local dragstrip. And that makes it a sub 9 second 1/4 mile at 130+mph. Whatcha think ? And you guys know I'm no stranger to going fast so me riding it won't be a issue. I've had Dragbikes to fast street cars to fast drag quads so I need a new thrill. Haha
