Added reply in a thread 2014 Texas Pro Challenge **$25K** Oct 3-4-5 9/19/2014 7:11 AM

River Valley outside Fort Worth will have a $5k pro purse the previous weekend for their annual cancer benefit race. It should be a good warm-up race for the guys that are in town to attend the Pro Challenge.

I was at Lake Whitney when Lechein won his first national on that bike. Factory unobtanium trickness!

LOL

We'll see. The big problem is getting 100 octane without adding ethanol. Look at the MSDS on any unleaded 100 octane race fuel and you'll find a lot of ethanol.

Added reply in a thread AV Gas for 2 strokes.. 9/16/2014 2:42 PM

100LL isn't going anywhere. The FAA and EPA have been trying for decades to find a non-ethanol unleaded 100 octane alternative to 100LL for decades and it simply doesn't exist.

I greatly doubt the fuel was your problem. Aircraft often sits for long periods of time and no pilot can afford to have engine trouble when he is trying to take off.

Added reply in a thread AV Gas for 2 strokes.. 9/16/2014 2:09 PM

The FAA and the Federal govt have not made any changes to 100LL. It's still 2 grams/gallon.

MP818 is a local Texas pro. He's fast enough that I would recommend that he stick with 927 in the summer and run K2 in the winter when it's under 50F, or run K2 year round.

You would be safer with 100LL.

Added reply in a thread AV Gas for 2 strokes.. 9/16/2014 12:19 PM

Max, just be careful running 927 in the winter. It separates from the low specific gravity fuels when it's cold outside.

You heard wrong. Straight 100LL works great. Been using it for over 30 years in my 2-strokes. Cylinder head temps for my bikes generally run 140-145F when I pull off the track in the summer.

100LL is good 2-stroke fuel. It's only $5/gal around here, so I just run it straight. The oil ratio depends on the type of oil, your skill level and what type of dirt you ride.

If you want your 02-07 CR250 to bark right off the bottom, have Gorr mill .030" off the base of the cylinder. When you mill the 02-04 cylinder, the head will also require milling for proper piston clearance. The 05-07 head has enough clearance to run ... more »

I was riding a mod '73 XR75 in '75. Had a Powroll big bore, cam, ported head, big carb and Bassani pipe. It would run circles around my brother's new TM100. Then he installed an FMF pipe on the TM and that bike came alive and would run circles around ... more »

I've got my '95 shock working well with some shim shuffling and heavy oil.

LOL, it would be worth the trip but you won't find any yankee soul food around here! Lot's of good BBQ and Mexican food though!

Come check out the races this Sunday, even it's just to spectate. You'll dig it.

The Texas Vintage Racing Club has a class for your '96. The first TVRC race of the fall season will be at River Valley MX in Boyd this Sunday. You should bring it out and spin some laps!

Shout is not corrosive. It has a neutral pH of 7, which is the same as water. One of the nice things about Shout is that it works so well that you can leave the pressure washer in the garage. All you need is a spray nozzle on a garden hose. That is the ... more »
