With the recent news that 2011 "may" be our last season at Maxton, I have started thinking.... I know me thinking again is dangerous LOL  cheers

I have been running on.chasing and setting records with my "E"  engine at Maxton and Loring... I knew that that little 255 cu.in. would not be able to break 200mph from a standing start in the Mile at Maxton, I do however think I have a chance at Loring (may be a dream, but I feel the E motor can do it)..

My sadness is I wanted a 200 Club from Maxton (my home track and the ECTA my home club)  now that is the dilemma !!!  the  E gas motor can not do it... I know of no classic gas  car that could with an E motor... so

I THOUGHT I Had more TIME...... the only option is use another motor !!

Oh my !!!  I thought I had more time !!!

To anyone who has dreams or goals for them at Maxton,,, you have the same time   dilemma ... get your projects done.. See you all in April..

I know how Charles is feeling. I'm about to be 74 so my time on a bike may be running out soon.

My 100cc production bike is still ill and I really want to do 70mph on it at Maxton. So, if I am lucky I will have 5 more chances. Some things I thought I had more time for are going to have to come up in priority.

Loring is a long way for a 2 day meet and with the coming of $6 gas probably not something I will be able to do.

Maxton here I come.

Cajun, it's gonna cost you one way or another.

You have confidence in your E motor.

Dallas knows.

Hit it with the can.

Then u are racing.

Charles - do not go over to the dark side - it is where peope specialize in making many many small useless parts out of one big part that used to be a good motor.  Just buy my firebird.  If 850 HP pushed me past 200, it ought to really make that stude fly!

I know you guys understand...

I can't say never,,, but "Artificial Horse Power"  like N20 or forced induction is just not my style... I want to do it on race gas and a single carb... and I will !!!

I do have a 370 cu in SBC... that I could pull out of the Vicky and put "the good heads" on it.. that would surely get me 200 at Maxton.... It is just a lot of work, to tear down 2 cars twice to do it.....

I may re tool my thoughts after Loring in July with the E motor,,, then swap motors for a run at 200 at Maxton in Sept/Oct.

Yeah, I could just put a 200 shot on the E motor and go for it,,, but !!!! that would be a tough choice for an old school traditionalist like me.

Working on several back up plans now...

Joe, I know there will still be an ECTA, maybe even a new and improved multi track version.  Maxton Mile is what I was referring to...  and with the E motor,,,  Yes I am scheduled to go to Loring,, looking forward to it...Now that I know how long the drive up is,,,I have alloted more time to be less rushed and enjoy the trip more. (still have crew/help concerns that far from home)

Charles, I'm not sure N20 is artificial HP...  undecided It is not just something I would bolt on and hold the button for 20 seconds, but it will help your motor consume more fuel thus making more power.  I've never considered it the dark side, it just makes you a fuel car, kinda like nitro on demand...  rolleyes
