In lemons racing, the rules are pretty subjective. The judges frown on teams showing up with miatas. They're just way too good at turning fast laps.

So, you do what Evil Genius or Eyesore racing did. Something a bit 'out of the box'....

It pull-starts by the way.. and is hard on belts apparently..

I can only hope that's what I'm seeing.

Connecting rod tow hook, too!

Dude. I just saw what you were talking about. It's either vomit or croutons, or vomited croutons.

I love delicious garlic croutons, and I don't like to associate them with vomit.

I wonder how a roots scavenged 2 stroke would be for racing. The exhaust plumbing would be much simpler, and there would be no need for oil in the fuel.

why are there springs on the exhaust?

IF, some one is legitimately wanting a sohc head for their 1.8 that would bolt on, I am going to have a know running condition head in a month or so. I'm pulling my sohc 16v 1.8 out of my protege. Can be yours for the price of shipping and a 6 pack of cheap (really cheap) beer.
