Powerstroke.org on a sprint car!!!

Alright guys, first off some history. I pit for my Boss' brothers wingless spring. These cars are about 15-1800 pound cars limited to 363 cubic inches running methanal for fuel. The class he races in is only allowed to run a two barrel carb. The average car has about 550 HP and the car steve drives is probably about 575-580 i would guess based on how well it pulls off the corner compared to the bigger dollar guys. We race almost every saterday and some fridays. The motor itself is 16.3 to 1 compression (almost as much as your 18 to 1 diesel).

As most of you know getting stickers on a car cost money, and if a car wins you also then have to pay again. Thats how sponsoring a race car works. If your stickers are seen in the winners "circle" you pay for it. Well, i have an annoucement!!!

Due to me pitting for the team, they have allowed me to put some powerstroke.org stickers on the car!!! They will be put on tomarrow morning before we leave for the race in Penaluma, CA. Below are some pics of the car as it was before the stickers. I appologize for the car being so dirty in some of the pics, but the jerk in front of us was throwing mudd off his tires like crazy....you would have thought he had just been offroading or something OHHH....and next race i promice i will make sure to check the air pressure in the left rear tire, as you can see from the pics, it obviously is llow on air since its like half the size of the right rear

After wrecking it in the heat and having to put a complete axle underneath (down to the kuckles and kingpins) as well as fix broken parts on the rear end.....steve then all but totalled it in the main after all that work to get him back out....lol....took almost 1200 bucks to get it fixed agian for tomarrow!!!

But yea, all that horsepower is sweet to hear. In the one pic of steve trying to drive under a car for the lead in the heat, you will notice the white smoke ring coming off the tire.....that is from being way too loose and spinning the tires...that means he wasnt hooked up enough and needed adjustments for the main

approx 70-110MPH depending on track conditions. "tacky" or moist tracks are the fastest and "dry, slick" tracks are generally slower. You actually lay rubber down on a dry slick track like a nacar car does on pavement....littlerally black tire rubber being layed into the track
