    I've not shot for a while and feel a bit bored/stir crazy..awaiting catarct surgery. But I have observed that many trapshooters are into other hobbies and are very qualified and skilled. Love looking at your interesting cars, motorcycles, trucks, or how about some recommended fly-fishing and boating equipment. So many of you guys have taught me a lot via pictures/comments in this section. Thanks..

    Nice machines, that now-blue Chevy looks like a big project with the suspension change. Is that an LS series engine?

    Looked like that orange MC a KTM; riding single track rocks is a big workout! And if the rocks are slippery...even more difficult. Looks like a midwestern or east coast enduro.

    Here is my Cummins powered Jeep Scrambler. It is not quite done.

    I built it from scratch and the only Jeep part on the vehicle is the grill!

    I just fired it last week for the first time. the engine sat for 8 years and fired first kick!

    That's Diesel Reliability.

    Impressive stuff, thanks. The S-10 with the LT looks factory, nice job. I am not familiar with slab sided circle track cars, curious what class the car is used in, sanctioning body, name for the type of car.."sportsman" or "modified stocker" or...I have a modern Duramax powered GMC, but it seems Cummins are they way to go for swaps into older vehicles...makes 'em super strong and reliable...I imagine it is the older 12 valve that people seem to favor for projects such as that(?)

    Is that Harley one of the rare flat track styled MC's Harley first put out to the European market a few years back? (The orange Harley..) A proper MC for the style "an engine and two wheels"...neat.

    Chango2, It is the flat track styled Harley. For a while it was only available in Europe then in 09 they made it available here. However they discontinued it in 2012. It never sold as well here but I love it. Mike.

    Chango2,

    The class the dirt track car runs in is called Indiana Super Stock. Car was built on a jig with 2 inch square tubing and has a 1970 thru 1981 camaro front clip on it. The only limits on engines are it has to have cast iron heads and block. The body is all hand made from aluminum. It has coil spring suspension with weight jacks on all four corners. It has a ford 9 inch floater rearend in it and my fuel of choice is methanol.It is UMP legal and weighs 2824 lbs. without driver. It has a 6:20 gear in it and we run 1/4 to 3/8 mile tracks. Features are usually 25 to 30 laps in length. I set the rev limiter on 8800 rpm and we go have fun on saturday nites.

    Mike

    Is the Cummins a 4BT? Do you have the version with the balancer shafts? A friend of mine swapped one into a full size 2WD Suburban and ran it for about 200,000 miles. Mostly on waste veggie oil. They are tough engines!
