Webb's plan appears to be simple: disrupt Roczen's focus by shifting the focus to Webb. Instead of focusing on clean laps, a clear head and winning, Roczen is now angry and focused on revenge or what Webb will do next. Webb is going to continue messing ... more »

Added reply in a thread Are 2-strokes banned in California? 3/10/2021 9:52 PM

I see this: "Manufacturers must decide whether to bring cleaner 2-stroke models to the California market once the Red Sticker program ends in 2022." They are trying to drive new technology. Maybe the manufacturers will respond. The new regime isn't great, ... more »

Now that's just badass! Harkens back to the mid-90s- RC defined PC at that time.

My first thought is there can only be one JS7. The man was on another level. Sexton going for it is cool- but maybe the first race back from injury wasn't the best time.

If Roczen did all that, it would show Webb is in his head. That would be playing right into Webb's hands- take away his focus, make him mad and flustered. Webb is a lot smarter than people give him credit for. Dude's also tenacious as shit.

I feel bad about mischaracterizing this- sorry to Donn Maeda. I just remembered it wrong, or misunderstood his apology. At least I could edit the post.

All I saw was Donn's apology- could have sworn it was a dude at a local track. Maybe I had it a bit wrong- apologies.

[Edit- apparently I got this slightly wrong- see post on next page with Wheaties box] Remember when Maeda tried to out some "squid" at a local track by posting his photo (because he didn't have numbers or his gear wasn't cool or he somehow or other didn't ... more »

Okay- thanks. The thing is a 2004 and pretty ragged out, but they want me to fix it. Maybe I will try a new carb. Sheeesh.

Added reply in a thread Polaris Ranger 6x6 won't start 2/24/2021 3:04 PM

Put in new fuel pump, battery and plug. The thing started and ran for like 10 seconds and cut off and wouldn't start again. Gas has been sitting in it a few months. Maybe drain the gas? I'm wondering if something is clogged fuel-line wise, too. Looking ... more »

If GP racers race in kilometers-per-hour, and an American racer is going the same speed in miles-per-hour, who is going faster?

4-stroke 450- clear big jumps at 3000 RPM. Two-stroke- clear big jumps at 13000 RPM (much more impressive sounding).

James was the sport's biggest star in his prime and I can't really think of anybody that has his starpower since then. I don't see Eli Tomac being invited to Jimmy Kimmel Live.

Some of those take-offs and landings must be in different time zones. Dude goes big.

California Energy Commission is also very close to banning any gas-related infrastructure in all new construction. That means they are banning gas stoves and gas heat. It sounds crazy, but it's happening. Enviro groups will not tolerate anything that ... more »

Not illegal to drive the one you have, but to buy new ones. Dude, it's already happening. Gov. Newsom issued an executive order in September 2020 mandating that all new vehicles in the state be zero-emission by 2035: https://www.gov.ca.gov/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/9.23.20-EO-N-79-20-text.pdf ... more »
