    1/2 1600 thread ONLY

    I always start with the outside springs and work my way in. Grease everyone individually also.

    On Topic Water Cooled 5-1600??

    Our Major Performance LC motor puts out more than our HC motor. Andy has got it figured out. And I believe there is more to come.

    On Topic Water Cooled 5-1600??

    When we raced 5/16 we did it on a budget. We had too. Pushed all our parts to the end of its service life and then beyond. We gambled every time we showed up. After a few DNF’s we started replacing parts and servicing the trans more often. I’m lucky enough to be able to do my own engine work so...

    Break pedal fade

    We have residual valves already. We may go up in size. We have the brackets that come with the kit. The “flex” is something we’re already looking into. But in all the other cars and ppl I’ve talked too the brackets are fine. Also running 33” Yokohama’s. Thanks guys keep the ideas coming. This...

    Break pedal fade

    We have a 5-16 with J-mar disk break set up front and rear. Rear is reg stub not micro. We replaced the VW master cylinder with 81’ vw rabbit truck 22.8mm bore. Oddly enough bolted right up. When we bleed the breaks they work great lock up all 4. We can stand on the pedal after bleeding and get...

    Crash Tested Designs ???

    Pretty sure the cars today are drawn up on programs like "solid works". The new engineering programs can predict stress points and potential failure spots. Nothing can predict the forces of a high speed roll over. But at least this gives them a starting point. I saw such a program on Chenowith's...

    5-1600 Question.

    Only prob with that is single port heads are hard to find and most cars already have dual port. Disks are safer than drums,And like Dave said about PS. So nice to have it. But my old car is still out there running no bypass all 2.0 no micro stubs. I would love to get my hands on it because I...

    First timer's guide to participating in the Baja 1000

    40k seams light to me. In 06' we made the run to la Paz in a 5-16 and it cost us 30k. And that was way more then I wanted to spend. You have a good plan started that's half of it. I have my team pit book on digital file that I can email. PM me your email if you're interested. You can use it...

    5-1600 Question.

    We're getting a little off topic from the OP original question but I couldn't agree more. Some people just give up on arguing the rules and let things slide. A hydraulic clutch won't make a difference rotating pivots might. The problem as I see it is some rules are ambiguous. Rules shouldn't be...

    5-1600 Question.

    I used to. Sold my car a few years back. This was a topic I was dealing with after I rolled it and pushed the pivot into the frame horn. I wasn't posting to stir up S#%£. It was more for edification. Seeing how you and others have been around for so long I was looking to learn something. Sent...

    5-1600 Question.

    Straight out of the rule book. "This class is a stock production class and all components must remain stock except for those modifications allowed herein." I read this like Dave says "if it doesn't say it can't do it". Correct me if I'm wrong but didn't this verbiage get changed not too long...

    5-1600 Question.

    More of a question than anything else…… thought you could as long as it was used with the stock pedals. I remember seeing hydraulic cylinders on the clutch. But that was like 10 years ago, things change, and it doesn't mean it was legal. Also did they ever open up the brake master cylinders...

    1600 Snore/More Rage At The River.

    Without getting all mushy it's always been a dream of mine to race against this crowd. 41 cars and still weeks to go. So many fast guys that I've watched for so many years, and now I get to race with them. Pretty honored honestly. Hopefully I can hold it together and hang it out there long...
