I read the other day that UMP is testing the 525 crate at Charlotte, and ran it in a car at Montpelier last week.

Thoughts?

IDK about dirt, but 525 hp in an asphalt mod, on our local tracks....would be about enough power to negate the advantage of trying to cheat by modifying it. I like that. I dislike underpowered crate motors where a little bit of cheatwork can be hooked up to make real speed. Do these crate option organizations and tracks running nowadays take fuel samples like they should?

Since no one wants to do a wait break for a V6 on asphalt mods I think this is the way I would lean to try and make sure we didn't over power the rear tires.

Gavin I have heard no results from the test but have a couple calls into guys down south to see if I can get an update.

I know the car ran well, but I dont know the implications to rules changes. I also agree with Mike that teching is a big deal, IMCA does a good job of this, I have no experience with UMP. The "blueprinted" crate class that CRA/Jegs and several dirt latemodel series have become is about as far from the intent as you can get.

my buddy is a crew guy on a UMP mod in Illinois, he has told me they are going to one. they run little tracks, FALS,Macon, etc. I don't think they're selling off their Mullins motor yet though.
