    On Topic KOH cell coverage

    For how many people attend the event, I’m surprised carriers don’t put COWS out there. (Cell tower on Wheels.) All the major carriers have a fleet of these and periodically dispatch them to large events where big gatherings of people would otherwise overload the normally used area towers.

    Hi Bro, There are some VERY large differences. They main one being that In a 10 car you can't leave anything on the table for your competition. You have to have the best-of-the-best running gear or you wont run top pack. I think there's a stigma that a modern day 5 car is a 120K JFW car. Yes...

    Are you guys running a built engine? Saw in the race report you pulled the hole-shot on Schweers. Was surprised to hear that given both cars are the same essentially, with the exception of them having a 2.5 vs your 2.4

    I’m curious if the high entry cost will discourage a large car count like the one we saw at the 2018 PCI 300 with 21 5u entries. IMHO there are like 5-6 cars/drivers that could clench that big purse.... Cade, Grinch, Grabowskis, Willard, Belk, Maybe Bean, Maybe one of the new shoes behind a...

    Nice picture. What do you propose we could do to put it on the said diet? Comparing it to our other car, it seems like it has "just enough" tubes that are strategically sized and placed. The other thing is that we ( drivers & co dawgs ) are on average 220 lb dudes. :eek:

    We were kicking it around for a couple weeks too. I kept telling my buddy it's too good to be true, why isn't it sold already?!? My guess is the guy's location is the reason it sat on the market for over 2 weeks or whatever it was. And better yet, we got it for 13k!

    We all know Zac's the man and could probably beat out the field in the old car that had the junkyard engine and 2.0 smoothie shocks up front. Meant "The other guy....." At any rate, you've all lost me as to who owns what now, and who Jlongo is vs. the Swifts, etc. I thought the "Aztec Building...

    On Topic Water Cooled 5-1600??

    No offense taken at all. There rules are so dang tight on these things, there's not much you can do other than giving them CAM and COMPRESSION. You take (1) of those components away, and now you have the same super limited engine that you can CAM however you want on a restricted compression...

    Be interesting to see how said champ does with more than 1 competitor that isn't running a single-shock pan car?:eek: Jokes aside, not gonna make this one. But I'll be out there with my cheerleader Pom-Pom's rooting for you guys and pre-running Friday in the Red Rocket Any JFW cars gonna be out...

    Tape them together with electrical tape. Once the pack is taped together in a couple spots, kiss the corners of the pack with a flap wheel to lightly contour the sharp edges.

    On Topic Water Cooled 5-1600??

    I hear the "Low Compression Engine" runs pretty good at 9.5:1 with that 44idf carb Hey JHUT, putting together that "Race Engine" at 10:1 is a waste of time. You can't leave anything on the table in this class. You need to get as much compression into that thing as possible. 30cc heads, and a...

    new class 5???

    Had a whole whoppin (3) 5U's at the night race and (3) 5/1600's. Maybe people are discouraged due to the dominance of the Jake's cars and feel that if they're trying to compete with anything else it's just a waste of time? Maybe we can adopt a rule that if you have a JFW 5u, you have to run a...
