My car is not quite legal for Nationals in SSM it is only legal under NW-region supplemental to run in SSM. Id have to run XP at nationals. My car is more of a street driven track car that I take to autocrosses than an autocross car. Id get my **** kicked I think if anybody showed up for XP. I may try and bum a co-driver ride in somebody’s car that is actually prepared to the rules in some class. E-stock even is actually quite fun.

I think your only comp in XP is Keith Brown... The rest of the XP cars are all stripped out 2nd gen Hondas.... lol

At least that's what It's been for the last few years.

Kieth is in DP. Ron Bauer and Jim Danials have also converted there old CSP car to DP. I think Kieth is faster though he is getting 170+ rwhp out of a naturally asperated 1.6l spinning it to 9000 rpm and weighs 800 lbs less than me and can drive. Locally there is much less competition for me in XP which is like DP with turbos and big motor swaps than even SSM, but I dont know who shows up for national tour, I have never been.

Thanks for the pistons, Bob. I hope the thieves that stole them out of my car last night will get as much use out of them as I would have.

I happen to be more prone to being ripped off than most people. I have atleast 2 expensive items stolen from me each year. Everything from my gas getting siphoned to my house being robbed. I've never stolen anything in my life so i'm not sure what i've done to get this karma.

ya its a good illustration of the compression differences between a GTX and a miata. Miatas have 9.5:1 compression, right?

I was more referring to #3 and #4 being at TDC at the same time. No wire wheel love for them?

Oh haha. Ya, I reworked the crank, I think it'll work better this way

I'm putting a bunch of used parts together on the cheap. The only thing I cleaned on those pistons was the ringlands. I see no point to cleaning the top, they'll be dirty again instantly when I start the engine.

Cut crank in four pieces, reweld so 3&4 and 1&2 fire together. He's calling it the "Harley Miatavidson"

i was looking at those pictures with a WTF face too. what if we made it so that everything was synced parallel though? all 4 pistons at TDC at once! (nevermind the fact that the starter couldn't turn the crank) fire all 4 at once for momentary super power, RAWR!!!
