Re: Why are our engines so expensive?

My point was hp to hp between a V8 and Flat6 when compared to pricing for rebuilt replacements is ridiculous and I stand by that observation. There were comments above concerning availability of cores and sheer numbers produced making things for the V8 cheaper, which has validity. Still...WTF? Ok, ...

Re: Good Week @ 996Outpost.com

We can do carting as a private event, but not as a PCA event. Funny thing... PCA's insurance allows us to drive like lunatics on the track, but won't permit carting. Too dangerous. Yup - no drones or karts at PCA events. I can share that I was injured(not serious injuries) more while racing karts t...
