    I smoked \'em all... literally

    Smoked them all out with my smoke cloud. /forums/images/graemlins/smirk.gif Another motor bites the dust.

    I got to a mud bog a bit late, but still got to enter for one last run (out of two). It was smoking pretty bad, and upon driving home about 30 miles afterwards, it used about 2 quarts of oil. So long valve seals.

    This is the 6th motor in the Orange Blazer, and should have lasted longer than 5 months. Oh well, another thing to add to my "to do" list.

    At least I got a trophy out of it. 3rd place... not bad for getting the max time penalty for not running the 1st round. I wonder if I could have done better had the motor been running better. /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif

    It made it through. I think only 3 rigs total made it through in the Street and Trail class. Had the motor not been running so crappy, I wouldn't have run out of power at the end and had to shift down to low and slowly make my way out.
