Just got the Rod bearings in today (shop forgot to send them...) So now its off to be balanced again with the new dampner and clutch. That means next week we should be building the engine. Next race is Sept 28, Would really like to win that. No chance for the Championship but would like to show them who's Boss (Got to beat that dam GT3). Next trace will be with my wang!Okay now that we have all agreed Charlize is way hotter than some bald guy whose mom named him after the abbreviation for a Vehicle Identification Number, how is the CrazyHelmet's motor doing?
technically, yes it had 2 seats but only for the rules.Was that a street car??
first off, don't do this, it's bad for the environment, yourself and anything else it comes in contact with, sort of like hydrazine, but that didn't really stop anyone either.OK, I will take the bait, whats the story on mercury bars?

"1 gallon of water weighs about 8.35 pounds. 1 gallon of petrol weighs about 6.073 pounds. 1 gallon of diesel weighs about 7.01 pounds. 1 gallon of milk weighs about 8.26 pounds. 1 gallon of mercury weighs about 113 pounds. "
This mostly applies to circle track cars that have to have a specific left side percentage, as well as front to rear. since mercury weighs a lot, and is liquid at most normal temperatures you can seal it up in a frame tube ( a very robust frame tube) and place it in the car as just another chassis piece. The advantage is that as you accelerate the mercury runs to the back of the car helping plant the rear tires, providing forward bite, during braking it does the opposite, increasing braking and improving turn in. It also opens up a complete new set of parameters for chassis tuning. I know of 2 of these cars, I've seen one (supposedly) because you can't tell if the bars contain mercury or not. This is one reason why many tracks require 1/4 inch holes drilled in chassis tubing, to inspect the thickness and make sure there's no additional parts floating around in there.
It's actually a brilliant concept.
