Pushrod Rebound

Post by cstraub » Thu Feb 19, 2004 9:27 am

Don, French and I touched on this a couple of years ago when I was have some problems with a Super Dirt Late Model engine.

Ask French about pushrod defection and the trend to go larger pushrod diameters for less deflection. Are we going the right direction IHO?

Yes Chris, I'm asking him about tuning, but he also wants to talk about engine components.

Any more questions for French? I'm interviewing him tomorrow at 6pm eastern. This should be a good one.

Don,
Outstanding interview with French Grimes. His common sense approach to technical issues is a lesson for anyone involved in racing. Keep up the good work!
