    They can shut up and clean it up. And if they don't like it, I'll leave.

    Piss on those pricks. I can say I've liked the track one time. I've sat while powerglide after powerglide shit itself all over and none bitched about that.

    Or have three 10.5 cars in a row kick a bone out and put oil from 100 feet all the way past the finish line and the bitches cleaned that up.

    So they can clean it up IF it happens.

    If it sounds like I could give a single shit about a track, you'd be correct. I've done more than my time dealing with dirt ball owners, insane NHRA, retarded city people, deaf cigarette smoking liars, a sound engineer who had a maniacal HATE of anything even remotely resembling a race car, multiple city councils who would go by the very laws they wrote to save their lives, a promoter who was not only a pathological liar, he was also a full blown crook who should have had he teeth knocked out more than once...want me to go on?

    Piss on the tracks. If the least they have to do is clean up something other than water they can eat my root.

    Depends on how you define best. It isn't the best for most things. I just sounds good to the over educated long haired engineers who have to pay off college loans and hate the world.

        I don't know I read the bottle and it seems to work good for me LOL pour bottle in and then finish with distilled water and when it's time to dump it out I just pull the hose and let it roll down the driveway with no mess... Actually I think that's the best part...

        You run a pressure cap? If so, maybe best isn't best?

        I gave the short version. Want to me tell you about all the time I spent researching the city archives? About how there wasn't a lawyer in all Division 6 who wanted to touch all the laws the city breaks every year? Still?

        Like I said...screw the tracks and all who run them and the sanctioning bodies who are nothing but mendacious whores.

        Now I'm getting wound up...

          Dude...you need pockets full of cash. Straight cash. They'll be lots of good stuff there.

          And if you manage to find the place, and don't fill up on donuts before you get there, I'll buy you a cheeseburger.

          Just remember, NWDRA rules say I can't even begin to load out until like 2:30 or something. Unless you want to hand truck out to my truck all the crap that doesn't sell.

          We should have probably started a valve job and water wetter post.

            LOL. If I gave you the full history of my local track, we could go much, much lower. Then, I could give you the history of the two promoters that ran the local track on a payola basis, and how th boot licking drag racers never stood up to them?

            I should write a book, but my ability to make a living was already threatened (and several others) twice before.

            Not enough of the criminals are dead yet.

            I use 50/50 anti-freeze. My cars are in the cold 4 months a year. My track is IHRA. I've not had them check, and I've not had a spill of anything on their track. Everyone knows all the street cars, and new Scat Packs aren't running water. LOL.

                I just picked up on this video. There are 3 in the series about why you shouldn't just bolt these heads on and go. Like we have learned from PBR, a proper valve job is the place to start.

                  I wonder if SM even grinds the seats. I bet the seats already have the angle and they press them in and go.

                    16 out of 16 valves sealed in my heads. That would be pretty lucky if they are just pressing and guessing.
