I should order a new book...last time I did that, I ended up receiving two rule books and three shirts. Not bad for $10.

Sid, everclear (190 proof ethanol) drys quickly, sanitizes immediately, and can be put in a small spray bottle for use.  It is my go to hand, mail, grocery and breath sanitizer. 
Just saying  :cheers:
I squirt everything with a bleach soap mix but not my breath, although Trump did think a guzzle or two might be medicinally advantageous! Mate, hold my bleach......

No butterfly injectors fork just fine Jim. I remember a few who have done it. Cree was the last one I think. Take your butterflies out and they will work too. If you think your engine will just run to explosion, think again. It can't rev or over rev without fuel... where does the fuel come from?. not the fuel pump, it comes from the barrel valve. You control fuel by the valve. Think about it. as you would adjust your idle screw opening up the butterflies what did you also do???? You opened the barrel valve too. So you control idle with the barrel valve and connect you throttle pedal cable to it......Granted it's not the smoothest but that's how it's done..Neil Thompson did it and so did Clifford Clark.

Seems like they'd run pretty lean at idle.  Probably not a good street set-up.

I barely knew Clark.  He borrowed my Enderles to see how they were set up compared to what he was manufacturing.  Took me six months or so to get them back ? completely disassembled.  I was not happy.

Yes , 2020 book arrived in Utah !   little beat up also but the book is fine .
My question is ; page 17 thru 20 is all in bold print , so new rules ? Ok , what about 1.V there has always been a paragraph addressing this , seems to read the same . Is something here I'm not seeing ?    Thanks !

The reason those pages are in bold is because there was some consolidation of what was stated in the motorcycle section and what was already in the general rules section. Nothing really new just calling out the move of information. Page 95 for example has a "rule change" called out in a bold font.
Not to say you should ignore these changes in section 1, just an explanation why the bold font.

Stan, I remember being at El Mirage years ago and the car that was on the starting line sounded very strange. Motor would rev very high then sound like someone would kill the motor, then rev high again, and kill the motor. This sequence just keep going on until they pushed the car off.  I thought to myself what is wrong with that car. It was a lakester and at the time it could have been Walkey's or which later was sold to Creel as I remember. Anyway I found them in the pits and asked what all the noise at the starting line was about and they told me that there were no butterflies in the injectors and that to be able to control the injectors at idle they had a kill switch they would activate when the motor would rev up and they would release when the revs dropped down to keep the motor running. At the time it did not seem to safe to me, but under a load I could see how it would work.

One of the desirable things about LSR is that innovation is still allowed, unlike pretty much every other motorsport. I can't imagine trying to drive a car with a WW-I technology "blip switch" but hey,.... if you want to you can! :?

Anyone North of the 49th get their rule books yet? I usually get mine about a week or so after those in the USA but nothing yet.
