    It doesn\'t pay to open your mouth after all

    My turn to vent.

    Went to another bog race yesterday. Last time I was there I complained about tractor tires running with DOT tires. They changed the rules. Now they bumped us up to XXX (anything goes) class. If anyone had more than 3 engines mods done to their stock engine ( headers, etc.) We had to run against a rail car and nitrous boys. They put naturally aspirated trucks against the guys on the bottle. What a bunch of crap. Only 14 trucks showed. 7 of them ended up being in the XXX class. Only one guy in the X class ( 44” tires). He happened to be the tech guy. No one could believe it. Looks like no many people will be going back including myself.

    It was fun running against the rail car and Robin came in third with the Knight after all. He had a great run.

    Put some pics on the site if anyone is interested

    So put manifolds back on and run a monster nitrous system... *evil grin* then you can run the 'X' class and kick some butt!

    I am so tempted..... but I like to wheel.That's why the truck stayed the way it is.

    Could you picture wheeling on nitrous.... I don't think so :)

    C'mon Tess, mudding with laffing gas would be killer! Plus you would have the chance to use the rules against them![​IMG] Besides nitrous is something you can just 'not use' for regular wheeling or Mudding like when you're not competing.

    Pretty cheap to add too - 150hp worth of NOS only runs around $350[​IMG]

    Get some late 60s rams horn exhaust that flows great. or big truck exhaust. remember to retard your timing 2 degrees for every 50hp increase of N2O. Hope you have forged pistons too.
