i'm not a particular fan of oval track racing but i always have respect for virtually any motorsport, everyones go their preference

i'm a big fan of drag racing and also really like touring cars, auto-x and most forms of racing.

i have no car pics to post cuz i'm limited to only my daily driver at the moment, all my time and effort seems to go into my friends cars, eh its still fun

cool pics though man

Dale Jr is ok, but my Roush boys are top dogs. I HATE Tony Stewert and Jeff Gordon.

Im helping my boy build his first race car. We got the 85 four eyed stang. Going with a 408 with Yattes heads. Came off Bill Elliotts car. Should make 800 rwhp N/A.

Also have did some Kart racing , but got into drag racing 4 wheelers. Selling the 4 wheeler now.

I like the Daytona 500 and will keep updates to see how my drivers are doing. But I cant stand sitting there and watching cars go around in circles for hours upon hours. I just like to see who wins and watch the crashes. I know that sounded bad. I dont wish no one gets hurt, but some of those crashes are insane in the membrane!

If you went to a race in person, youd think differently. I must admit, its a different tiger on tv....I def prefer the in person.

A good friend of mine internationally races go-karts. Don't ask me what type of kart he has because I have no ****ing idea, but it's something italian and the motor he has in it apparently pulls 40+ hp. Not a shifter kart, but a direct drive. Thing is blindingly quick.

weight is 2300 with driver and tank of gas, ac is out aswell, 1/4mile dirt oval with 50 cars on it for 100 laps no stoping, and hitting speeds of 110kh/h in second gear... going into the corners on 15 inch tires and no powersteering and car break down they stay on the track.

the stang we are building should produce about 700 to the wheels N/A. but we are going to put a T-101 turbo on it once we play with it N/A hehe.

this is old, but it bugged me.

he most likely ran a parilla motor. and no clutch kart (direct drive) is blindingly fast. they have absolutly no bottom end.
