    Thanks for the correction, David. I had the wrong Stude in mind. Skip's Mercruiser set up was VERY interesting and it's part of what I love about LSR - you never know WTH is going to show up. Not that a 2 cylinder BBC is common. Although there WAS a 4 cylinder BBC (in a Monza).....

    The Stude powered Stude was running +/-165 CID (IIRC) and was also a pretty decent race car. Saw him in impound as well.

    Actually, the other car in the class was the Hudson Boys, but they had a Mercruiser/Chevy II four-banger destroked with an Eaton blower and a nitrous unit. It looks like they decided not to qualify in the Fuel category so that we could keep our measly record. They did get the record in the Gas class. Skip Carlson (with the Stude) was a true sportsman and a gentleman the whole way and very, very cool to let us play even though he brought a real race car and we did not.

    The Hudson Boys were running a destroked Studebaker V8. No foolin'. I forget the actual displacement but it met class rules. It was a sweet little motor - not that Keith's wasn't! (I think I have the right car here. You see SO many in tech).

    Hey Keith, would it run harder if you yanked all the unused rods/pistons and just put collars over the journals to keep oil pressure?

    No parasitic losses that way...

    Hey, what were the Hudson boys running for a motor?

    So here's the quick and dirty scoop...... Frieburger and I decide we're going for the slow to fast, roll on, push followed by a Hard HARD ass push if the first fails us..... and Fail it did.... so he banged it down into first to see if he could get the RPM back and the answer was a clear NOPE........... So I banged into him Hard like 14 mo fo's.... and Pushed him again like a dump truck hitting the little old lady in her Galaxy....... Seriously I hit and pushed him so hard I broke the push bar and banged into the rear bumper.... ( we're Racing .... Hello. )......

    He actually accerated for a minute there until it started smoking like a 442 locomotive... Seems the header on the right didn't like Oil from the valve cover gasket .... ( the motor didn't seem to vibrate to bad according to David )....

    He ran and ran.... finally passing the timed mile and turning out to arrive as we did on the return road..... ( seems he kept it at full throttle as he left the course!!! )

    Life is good..... even if the Hudson boys beat our record right after us....with a 130mph record or so....
