I personally think that setup can override the motor aspect if done in a package.....what's your opinion?

I agree with ufb...First set the car up and then worry about a motor and I know this from experience.

I completely agree with you guys but always put in a good motor with good ignition so it doesn't keep breaking while you are chasing your setup. I know this from experience, I spent more time trying to make it start when I should have been changing my setup.

An 8 inch tire can only put down so much power, so you need to be on top of you chassis setup to get all you can down. We run almost all dry/slick tracks so setup is more important. On a heavy track, bigger engine can be an advantage, but We run a very healthy 377 and have never needed any more power. We have a mod car count of 50 to 60 every week and are a consistant top 5 finisher. If we do not win (I being the crew cheif) have to take the blame on not having the car dialed in just right for the track condition. Just my observation and thoughts.

There's an old saying, "If the hoods up, you ain't working on the chassis!"
