Re: I'm Baaack!

Well, it's not going to be a 2 piece chassis for long.... Our courses tend to be pretty fast, a lot of Vettes and other CAM class stuff so pending on gearing I don't think I will be shifting that much. Were you running the 494? My DareDevil F Mod has the 493 - more torque. If I had not sold it, I w...

Re: I'm Baaack!

Autoxing with a 600cc MC means a lot of shifting - FSAE comes to mind - unless you have upped the power. And, I am told by the MC gurus that 1st and 2nd gear don't like to be run hard in autox's. And a single piece chassis handles much better than a two piece chassis that a Zink Z19/22(?) has - from...

F600 CHALLENGE: 2018 FINALE AT ROAD ATLANTA

The Friday morning qualifying session was cold and wet so few of the F600 drivers ventured out onto the track. Unfortunately, Jeff Delong went out and slid into the back of a FF in a braking zone on his 2nd lap and bent his front suspension; it was finally fixed for the race. The afternoon session w...

Re: Sonoma Runoffs

David Lapham won after Jeff collided with a FF. David was disqualified in tear down when
they found that the motor had the older, larger restrictor plates in it. John Holman was the previous
owner and David had not checked the restrictors. Bummer.

Re: F600 Challenge: 1st Time at NOLA

But not as fast as the cars COULD go if the track was smooth given our limited suspension. Our drivers commented on how the FF's were smooth through the rough corners with only their wheels moving up and down. The result was a lot of broken pieces over the weekend.
