    Default Paging Warp Speed.

    Warp, did I see you post somewhere that a Cup Engine makes 2.4 hp/cu.in ?

    Is that about correct for a SB-2 or Ford engine ?

    That sounds about the average for a cup motor

    About right for a good running piece, give or take a little!
    Not bad for a 12:1cr, flat tappet cam with a single 830 carb.

    Not sure about the Ford's (slightly less but not much!!), but I know they are handling through the corners pretty good right now, and that makes them look like they have a 1000hp when your struggling!

    The SB2 was about 2.2hp/ci, but that was 2 years ago when we stopped using them so i am sure they would be better now.

    A typical Sprint Cup engine is right around 850hp no matter what the make.

    Thanks Warp.

    I still can't believe they don't run roller cam's in those engine's. Why is that ? That seems like a stupid rule .

    Trying to keep it old school I guess. Otherwise we would use EFI and rollers, but then that would put even more people out of job's and that is already a problem in the sport right now!

    Same thing as everyone, the new car is tricky. There is so little you can do, that when you do find something, it is huge. For instance the 18 car earlier in the year, and now the Roush cars. What used to be a little something is allot now!
    We had them covered last year, but racing both cars we spent allot of time trying to lock up the Championship instead of working on just the new car more, and it has showed this year. We have good speed and usualy qual. well, it's just getting them to stay that way all day long.
    I think the Dodge boy's had the old car down, especialy on the Intermediate tracks (1.5-2mi). The new car is a whole differant game, and if you are a little off your down laps in a hurry!

    Thanks Futs.
    I've been extremely fortunate in my opportunities, but have had to bust my balls and sacrifice allot to take advantage of them. Been there 10 years now and it's a great place to work. You won't find a better man than Rick!!

    You doin' allright?
