'why' was not the question of the moment....

yeah, thats my hand. small accident at work turned into a few hours at the Belgrade Urgent Care Clinic. with a little under 3 weeks till race day and a ton of tuning to do, i now have 13 stitches and one broken finger. now things are a little complicated. it hurts a bit but what concerns me is getting my gloves on to wrench and race. i should be healed in time but to be safe i have Dylan on standby as the pinch-hitter. lessons learned: make sure your best friends are about the same size as you, so when they have to be you, they can fit into your tight leather suit. i'm sure there is another lesson to be learned but one a day is enough for me. f this day.

things over here are deep in the crunch. i very recently got my motor back from the Porter and the inside is a thing of beauty, the ports are so smooth that they feel a little sticky. he went all-out on this and consorted with several "dudes who know their shit" and has incorporated several ideas that should work. emphasis on the 'should'. this is racing after all.Chris Carson Marine
our new dude hooked me up with 3 sets of 3 different weights of reed valves custom cut to fit my cage! i will put up picks of the motor's internals later.
