    Max did his job well, the team and their strategy really let him down. Generally you mirror what your closest competitor does and they did not. I was really surprised when they kept him out to the...

    I met an ex racer that actually still does vintage racing from Portland at Scottsdale. To my amazement he defended what was going on in Portland and said it was only a small area. He was going to...

    NASCAR has been bull Shit for years and years, they used to let Jr. Johnson cars run light because he brought Winston in and they were grateful. Restrictor plates have been used to manage the...

    It would have been interesting to see it against the GT-40, I bet it would have done well because at that time it would have had a power advantage and the weak spots of the Cobra chassis had been...

    That reminds me of a gokart I built for my son. it was a Tony Kart with a 440 Arctic Cat snowmobile engine, 55 hp about 300 pounds with him in it. I wanted to teach him throttle control but it...

    It is supposed to simulate a street race where they turn on a flash light or do an arm drop.

    In the video it is just over 9500, it still is making 790 HP at 9000 but peak power is 8200. The idea is to not have to shift in an autox and not bog in slow corners. Working range is 3000 to 9500...

    I was afraid to go that far out of town because I had no trailer and I broke the car on a regular basis. Raisin city ran us four abreast so that was kind of different. The only strips I went to...

    That video is of the old 498 cid engine, new short stroke 440 is much faster. As far as replica's go we have not been beat by one yet, in fact Kirkham is selling a copy (not exact)

    I thought they left Max out too long but he said he was fine on the radio (not sure that was before the last stop though). The Honda looks like power levels are getting competitive. I would love...

    I remember Shirley Shahan running 113 in an early dodge around 1962, We could not believe it since our "fast" street cars were running around 102 in the low 13's. She was in the 12's so we were out...

    I am with all of you on Hamilton he started out sort of normal and has become a real ass hole. Would love to see Mercedes put someone like George Russell or even better Max in the other car to kick...

    I can remember a Paxton blown 57 that went low 13's @ 103 at our local drag strip. Not too bad for those days but not really very fast. A stock 57 Corvette with single 4 barrel would run 98 @ 13.4...

    That is so true, a dentist brought one to an autox at Pleasanton in 1966. I was shocked at how small it was and so low too. I rode in one at our Florida test track in the 1990's and it was really...

    Thanks for posting, shows how well the cars went from the start. I was a Corvette owner in 1963 and attended the Laguna race. The Cobras destroyed the Corvettes to my dismay.

    Hmmm SC with a glove box, molded in hood scoop, no hood rivets, wrong rear fender lip (converted street car).

    I believe we old farts are the lucky ones, we lived in wonderful times and got to see so many important events like Sputnik and the moon landing. Cars are better now but way less challenging to...

    Really brings back memories, you could stand right next to the track in Famosa and nobody cared.

    Most of you probably know this but the original street 427's came with a spring loaded fold down bracket attached to the lower hoop of the front bumper. Whenever you exceeded about 25 mph the plate...

    Good story Morris, all their cheating did not help. The smell of that stuff on the formula Ford grid was so strong it would make you sick. You are right, very hard to catch.

    I used it back in the 1990's when everyone was cheating in Formula Ford and I could not convince SCCA to test fuel. It had a label that warned of genetic damage from exposure. It worked great...

    I am betting that Bubba had a big plate (if they still use them) but it was not quite as big as it needed to be.
