  • He Did It Again!
  • Got my 52 N out the other day, along with my 12 year old grandson, Ramsey Charles. He wanted to "race me" on his dirt bike. So, I only used 1/4 tank of gas (weight, you know), Aired up my tires, put my ball cap on backwards. and off we went. Me in 4th gear, on a smooth dirt road.
    Yep, he did it again, Beat me.

    Dang it!

  • You have the standard 4 speed trans? A Sherman would get you about 23 mph. Still not faster than a dirt bike.

  • Put a piece of baling wire down to the butterfly and see if you can throw a piston at about 6000 RPM. as a kid I leaned down along and could reach butterfly.
    I also used to have a small lab sit on my lap, with feet on steering wheel and when people looked, I would point which way I wanted to turn and his feet would follow on the steering wheel as I steered with my feet on the steering rods. I even used a hand held spray gun and also steered that way
