Topics I've Started

  1. Front Screw Jack (Cost Driver or Just Continence)

    Posted 17 Sep 2018

    Not that I'm getting a lot of responses to these questions but I'm going to keep adding them. I of course have my own opinions on these but am looking for others to either support or change my mind.

    What are others' opinions based on a cost saving measure rather or not to allow front screw jacks on a street stock type class of car (once again this is dirt but not sure why that would matter in this case)? Given the option of allowing front screw jacks vs no screw jacks but allow shims and screw cups.
  2. Question for Engine Builders

    Posted 14 Sep 2018

    At what RPM limit would you say the cost of building a motor really starts to make a jump? Not looking a F1 type stuff here, just for motors used for short track racing. Maybe there's more then one step but where are the point that component or build cost hit the next level.
  3. Michigan Dirt Street Stock Rules

    Posted 13 Sep 2018

    I'm doing a little research and working on reviving a little project I had started on a few years back and was hoping for some incite. What can anyone tell me about the "Michigan Dirt Street Stock Rules". I posted the header off the rules below and is states a number of tracks they are approved for and had a couple of questions.

    Michigan Dirt Street Stock Rules 2018 Season Updated November 2017


    The following rules have been approved for racing at the following Michigan Dirt tracks: Crystal Motor Speedway, I-96 Speedway, Merrit Speedway, Mid-Michigan Raceway Park, Silver Bullet Speedway, Thunderbird Raceway, Tri-City Motor Speedway and Winston Speedway (Each track may have different engine claim rules.)


    1) How many tracks are actually using them?

    2) Is this the evolution of the set of rules that a number of tracks got together to create a few years ago and is there a group responsible for them or just a collaboration of the track owners?

    At this point I'm at the planning stage and want to make sure I know the right people to get in contact with.
  4. Question on Engine Code

    Posted 23 Apr 2018

    This isn't really racing related (unless you count that it's for my tow vehicle) but I have a question on an engine code. I've seen on here in the past some good help from people on daily drives so I thought I'd ask. I have a 2001 Silverado with the 6.0 gas engine. I am getting a P0300 Random Misfire Code. The check engine light seams to trigger mainly when I'm coasting from speed or maintaining speed. I don't notice any actual misfire, at least not enough of one I can discern. My question is, can this code be caused by an exhaust leak? I know I have a leak at the exhaust manifold gasket and was wondering if once I rectify that my misfire code might go away. I guess I'm trying to be lazy and hoping to not have to go through looking for vacuum leaks, checking coils, and checking injectors to track it down.
  5. RR Shock Travel Dirt Modified

    Posted 10 Nov 2017

    What kind of compression travel should I be seeing on the right rear shock on a dirt modified with a a 4 bar shock in front?
