The news here in the Northeast is the developement of a 500HP Jasper engine and transmission to be run in the 358 modified class as well as the developement of generic heads..What a huge change this will be form the $23000 engines the DIRT guys are running...I think it's about time the little guys can have a chance

The new motor/transmission combo is supposed to run...@$7500...The head developement is actually more expensive....I don't get that..

Cosmo is right, the reason the heads cost so much is because that's where your power is at! I take it you guys are from the Northeast. I am too. I run an IMCA Mod and I'm going to try to run a Dirt Sport Mod but first we have to see how the money is.

Ok, Cozmo
Give up a good basic set up for a 3/8
usually quite wet during heats but by the end of the night is dry, slick and dusty

thanx racer,
we still run the bars,,it's an attempt to keep the car more consistant throughout the race without having to spend the big bucks on shocks...we can't keep up with the shock budgets that some of the guys have...We are running the bowl every week, then traveling to bear ridge(Bradford VT) on Sat nights..It's closer for us and no big dollar DIRT(gives us a fighting chance)
