I'm looking for the rest of the car as in a roller with a really Great Body. I have everything else in between including all new drivetrain, chassis, full 3" exhaust with coated headers, etc..
Date Posted:Thursday, September 10, 01:17:05pm
I have a healthy new big block motor(700) up. My question is; is there any advantage or disadvantages on the distance I install the mufflers from the header collector. Ya know, close to front or at rear wheels? Thanks
Date Posted:Friday, September 11, 06:20:58am
Farther away is better, less initial turbulence for the hot gasses, and they ( mufflers ) last longer as well. The muffler design has a lot to do with it. Chambers or straight through....

I posted a while back about needing some '67 Camaro doors and there was a posted response. I have tried repeatedly to e-mail him to see about buying the doors but have had no answer.
If anyone has a pair of take-off doors they want to sell, please call me at 713 690 4233.

In the grudge game, do some racers use money to race stop when trying to lock in? Is that good or bad for the game? Question...are all racers created equal or we have the big "I"s and little "you" syndrome? Who is responsible for the mentality if all racers aren't equal? Who suffers?

Grudge Racing is a big sport that we love and enjoy. With that being said, we choose certain people to uphold stipulations and rules as a DP man. Sometimes the DP man's decision can and will be challenged. Sometimes that person may have to ask the track tower for additional information to make the final call in certain situations. Once that person makes that call in this grudge game, we can't go back 5, 10, 30 minutes later, change it and expect everyone to understand it. That final decision was made with track input. Sometimes it doesn't look right and causes conflict. Now, what, if any, other solutions can we as a grudge community, put in place to help so that maybe this situation won't happen again? Track owners, elected DP men, teams and crews, we must move forward. Positive results are needed. We can't change the past, but we can move forward. Show starts at 7pm CST. Call in # 646-200-4419.

SUNDAY NIGHTS WIN IN OKLAHOMA'S $10,000 WIN NO PREP WAS A BIG NIGHT FOR THE BIRD CREW! THEY WERE IN LOUISIANA SAT NITE FOR A MATCH RACE WITH SHADDOW BUT THE CAR BROKE. THEY PAID THE $1,000 PUNKOUT @ 10PM. IT TOOK TILL 1AM TO PATCH UP THE BIRD.
THE GUYS HAD ENTERED THE BIG NO PREP RACE FOR SUNDAY SO THE CREW HEADED FOR OKLAHOMA WITH A WOUNDED 'BIRD. THEY MANAGED TO HELICOIL THE 2 BROKE ROCKER ARMS BUT THE MANIFOLD WAS STILL CRACKED/SPLIT.
NOBODY COULD WELD ALUMINUM IN TIME FOR THE RACE SO THE GUYS TOOK A RATCHET STRAP AND PULLED THE MANIFOLD TOGETHER! IT HELD TOGETHER FOR 5 ROUNDS! IT WAS AN ALL HOUSTON FINAL BIRDMAN vs FLACO- BIRDMAN FOR THE WIN.
IT LOOKS LIKE GRUDGE RACING HAS ABOUT RUN ITS COURSE. IT'S IMPOSSIBLE FOR THE BIRDCREW TO GET A RACE AT THE GRUDGE EVENTS.... NOW ON THE OTHER HAND IN THE LAST COUPLE OF MONTHS BIRDMAN HAS WON %21,000 BUCKS!!
IT LOOKS LIKE IT WILL BE "NO-PREP" RACES FOR THE BIRDCREW. WITH "NO PREP" PAYING $10,000-$20,000 FOR A WIN IT MIGHT BE TIME FOR THE BIRDCREW TO "FOLLOW THE MONEY"!!
**TOP SECRET- MAYBE I'M NOT TO PUT THIS OUT- BUT...**
[THERE IS SERIOUS TALK BETWEEN JAMES AND GARY IF THEY RETIRE THE GRUDGE RACING- SHOULD THEY LIGHT UP THE SCOREBOARD FOR LAST A MATCH RACE TRIM PASS. I CAN TELL YOU NOW- ONE GUYS WANTS TO LIGHT UP THE SCORE BOARD, THE OTHER IS AFRAID IF THEY POST THEIR MATCH RACE TIMES THEY WILL BE BANNED FROM SOME "NO-PREP" RACES. THEY ARE ALREADY BANNED FROM BACK HALF EVENTS- SEEMS IF THEY ENTER A BACKHALF RACE NONE OF THE OTHER RACERS WILL SHOW FOR THE EVENT.
I'M IN THE CAMP- LIGHT UP THE SCORE BOARD! IF YOU GUYS KNEW THE ACCOMPLISHMENTS OF THE BIRDCREW- YOU WOULD NOT BELIEVE HOW FAST THEY ARE- AND DOING IT IN A LEGAL BACK HALF CAR!! HOW EVER FAST YOU THINK THEY ARE -YOUR THINKING TO SLOW!! *JUST SAYIN*]

I need some help on a issue on Big Bertha.The #7 exhaust rocker arm keeps losing the lash on it.So bad I've already tore up a rocker arm and a pushrod.I've looked at the lifter and the lobe on the cam with one of those snap-on cameras and it all seems to look ok but it keeps coming loose.Any help would be highly appreciated.
[> [> [> [> [> [> Subject: Eric if i read correctly your loosing lash. If the exhaust valve is sucking up into the exhaust port you would be loosing lash. The exact same thing happened to me. I didn't find it until i pulled the head and boy was it obvious...
[> [> [> [> [> [> [> Subject: joe that sounds likely.. though checking the height of the stem compared to the rest of the valves would also tell eric if the vavle has sucked up.. providing the last machinest set all of valves close to the same height
[> [> [> [> [> [> [> [> [> Subject: I LIKE THE IDEA---.> I BET WHO EVER DID THE HEADS GOT ALL THE INSTALLED HEIGHTS PRETTY CLOSE. IT' MIGHT BE HARD TO SEE BUT MAYBE .050 OR SO LONGER MIGHT SHOW UP. TRYING TO CHECK THE INSTALLED HEIGHTS.

I have a 1989 gmc Sierra 1500 with 350 engine. When driving the vehicle it kills but cranks right back up. I could be on the gas and it starts to die out and kill. We've changed the entire distributor, computer, and fuel pump. It also has vacuum. What's y'all opinion. Mechanic can't get any reading cause of the year of the truck. He says all they could do is go through slots of codes...what's y'all's opinion
Date Posted:Saturday, August 15, 05:53:02pm
Willie check your oil pressure switch. It's tide in with your fuel pump and both send the signal to the ECM on the same wire. Also check your grounds like the guy suggested behind the head and you should have some around the thermostat housing too. Hope this helps

DAVID'S CAR WAS THE STATE
OF THE ART CAR IN THOSE DAYS. I HAPPEN TO RUN ACROSS EXCELLENT CHASSIS PICS FROM OUR 2005 EVENT. DAVID SAID I COULD TAKE ALL THE PICS I WANTED.
I REMEMBER ALL THE FIRST ROUND WINNERS HAD TO WEIGH. IT WAS OBVIOUS WOLF HAD THE FIELD COVERED AND WOULD PROBABLY WIN THE $2500. WELL WOLF WON FIRST ROUND AND DRAINED ALL THE WATER FROM THE INTER COOLER AS HE WAITED IN LINE TO WEIGHT.
I'M AT THE STARTING LINE RUNNING THE RACE WHEN SOMEONE CAME UP AND SAID I WAS WANTED IN TECH BUILDING. I WALKED IN AND A BIG CROWD WAS AROUND THE CAR. WOLF WAS 5 POUNDS TOO LIGHT TO MAKE CLASS RULES, HE HAD BEEN DQ'D -YEP DRAINING THE WATER OUT OF THE INTER-COOLER CAUSED WOLF'S MUSTANG TO BE FIVE POUNDS LITE.
HERE ARE 70 EXCELLENT SUSPENSION PICS. IF YOU RACE A MUSTANG YOU MIGHT WANT TO LOOK AT THESE FROM 2005. CLICK ON WOLF "UP TOP" OF THE PAGE.

Date Posted:Monday, August 10, 12:49:47pm
Someone sold enough crack for enough money to buy a Vega. He is planning to come to track in Houston and try to get a race or two. With a head full of crack and misplaced confidence he thinks he can out run anyone here and is putting everyone on notice he intends to do just that.
That being said save your money to put up so you can take his when he arrives. With that much confidence in his abilities you may just empty his pockets on the first race of the night!!!
Date Posted:Tuesday, August 18, 04:06:11pm
The race that never happened is in question.
Some think Birdman's car didn't break. Did Birdman leave town so that they wouldn't have to race The Shadow (Phil Shuler)? Birdman wants to clear the air. The Birdman crew days they ate never scared...win or lose! Lot of talk that the east coast scared Texas. What you think about that Texas? Is Texas scared of the east coast? Or is that just some of that oh so famous east coast hype?

I went and told them that all they got to do because they are better spectating than racing. Carl ain't never ever won a race talking about he was going to out run Jeff's 10.5 car with OTC what a joke and oh yeah OTC Off The Circuit
Date Posted:Sunday, August 09, 03:34:39pm
They did a hell of a job of promoting it fan wise... Too bad the racers didn't get the memo. The pits was pitiful...Atomic dawg show was a joke all smoke and mirrors. Keep race fooling the fans and you will witness the spectator side resemble what the Pitts looked like last night. It's obvious that you they have lost racer respect.... There was one Houston grudge car and one Houston 5.80 truck there and all the other Dallas grudge cars was at Kennadale testing and tuning. Treeman packed up and left the property after a couple of Duddd hits and there race fooling clowns (Atomic Dog) never told the fans that his big headliner wasn't gonna happen... People sitting around waiting on action that never was going to happen. HELL WE NEED FOR YOU TO TAKE A SIP FROM THE FOUNTAIN OF YOUTH JG AND SHOW THES GUYS HOW TO DELIVER A GOOD SHOW AND NOT PUMP UP DREAM VENUES AND RACE FOOL AND FUCK FANS OUT OD THERE MONEY!!! No hard feelings, no disrespect. JUST THE TRUTH!
Date Posted:Tuesday, August 11, 09:08:36am
HERE IS WHAT THE PROMOTERS DO-YOU PAINT A PICTURE THAT THE SPECTATORS CAN BUILD THEIR OWN MENTAL IMAGE ON, SOMETHING IN THEIR MINDS EYE. THE PROMOTERS KNOW THEY HAVE WAY "OVERBOOKED" THE EVENT BUT THEY DON'T CARE, THEY PROMOTE MATCH RACES THAT THE MATCH RACER DON'T EVEN KNOW THEY ARE BOOKED IN. JUST SOMETHING FOR THE EVENT FLYER . BESIDES THE UNSUSPECTING SPECTATOR JUST FIGURE HE BROKE. YOU ARE LUCY TO SEE ONE RACE AFTER SITTING ALL NIGHT. MOST DON'T KNOW THEY HAVE HAD THE "WOOL" PULLED OVER THEIR EYES. YES PEOPLE LIKE YOU FINALLY REALIZE WHAT IS GOING ON AND QUIT GOING. BUT HERE COMES SOME NEWBIE TO THE SPORT TO TAKE YOUR PLACE.
Date Posted:Tuesday, August 11, 11:00:31am
