So, it's not working out so good. They are having more motor failures? Got to love eth.
There is no way John Force racing is using cast blocks.I believe Ford cast's the blocks for Force and Bob Tasca. I know, they have nothing to do with street cars. Also Toyota does not make a V-8 with the cam in the block. They are OHC, except in NASCAR. If it flies, floats or rolls and has an engine in it, I will probably watch it.
I agree. Force has a huge collection of Haas CNC machines that most likely spit out Billet blocks/heads all day long... The days of water jackets is looooog gone, those suckers are solid, and knowing the way Force and Austin Coyle did things, most likely some aluminum alloy that has yet to be invented..... Or identified.... I know Coyle built a blower dyno years ago. It had/has a huge flywheel on it to duplicate the instant engagement of the "hit"....In an interview a few years ago Coyle was asked what they did with the blowers that didn't meet their specs. The answer, "We sell them to our competitors".... Same with clutch discs, test, and sell the marginal ones to other racers....There is no way John Force racing is using cast blocks.
It's not going away anytime soon thats for sure, but it does have it's issues in our combination for sure.So lets see some FACTS of how ethanol CAUSED a motor failure and not just some BS statement you pulled out of your ass.
good post Paul and as I posted a few weeks ago its 105 octane or some kinda rating equal to octane-not 98- and yeah there is a learning curve ...Warp Speed-My mistake here I apologize got my fuels mixed upWarp, so it is just like everything else where there is a learning curve to the fuel. I heard there were a couple "High-Tech Rednecks" working in the Hendrick engine area, and I bet they just might figure it out in spite of the Huge Obstacle that it is.LOL I would love to see some if the data you guys have found in the testing. It looks as if there is more to the fuel issue than just the adding of Ethanol. It looks like some other details have been tampered with in the base concoction that we call "GAS".Unsure
I love the guys that truly believe that Ethanol is the culprit in this mess. The issue it the "Change" in the chemical makeup in the fuel. I am no chemist, but I bet other chemicals had to be added to help "Blend" the ethanol which in turn makes it where we are comparing apples to oranges. It is clear that people like Unchained as well as those racing on E85 at Long Beach have proven that Ethanol has its place as a usable fuel. It just takes some changes to make it work. Clearly some (I won't name any names) are incapable to opening their minds to anything different and therefore will never move forward. Some just find complacency comfortable, which is not a terrible thing. Although true winners are never complacent.:wink2:
