Hi there all, Big fan of the site and info provided. I stumbled onto it just looking for general info and perhaps some up to date opinions on suspenion for stock clip applications for dirt racing. I have been in the industry for some time, ie; NASCAR fabricator, DIRT chassis builder (NE mods as well as IMCA style open wheels) and metal fabricator in general. I supervise a production weld shop with robotics and hand welded jig applications so my mind is always turning. I spent most of my time on the rear end of the last few dirt cars I have been involved with and drove myself. The stock clip front end is a little taboo to me. Getting off track I will pick Ranger Mike's brain. However the common theme is the small block chevy power with a 500 lift at the valve flat tappet cam rule. With your background have you any thoughts on combinations of internals or lobe separation, etc. The last one we put together was a mild motor completely legal and made 460 HP and 450 Ft/lbs Torque. 355 cu in. I understand common trends, lighter rotating assemblies, deccking the block and heads but just thought I would ask if there was anything you have picked up on or thought would work. If need be I can provide more details in regards to rule specs. Pretty straight forward though. 23 degree heads, 2.02 and 1.60 valves, 750 max carb (1), stock rod length for make 5.7 and stock replacement crank no knife edging or holes in throws and flat top pistons. Some other track a little different but this combo allows for legality across at least 5 tracks. Again first time writing and think its great. Look forward to reading more!
