    Track sled.

    Anyone looked into these or thought of making one? I moved from Texas to my home state of Montana and since ice fishing is one of my favorite pass times, "why not". Russians appear to be way ahead of use in the states on this. https://youtu.be/U1BR6JNNuBg

    Connecting Rods.

    Why are all the performance rods aluminum. The car world tends to use steel cast, powder forged, forged, and billet. Now powder forged rods are pretty common from factorys in engines these days, and are fairly inexpensive to make. They last a lot longer than aluminum rods. All out high...
