I have prolly watched this clip 100 times of the Surfmobile coming off the 55' Chebbie push car and Mike blipping the throttle to keep it clean, slipping the clutch expertly while making a slow right turn!

Damn I wish I could have been on the left coast to see all of that back in the day! Dave

Yeah, being an NA guy, that's a freaking MILE of piston to head! Would that help with piston to valve clearance on a hemi, or do the valves crashing into each other limit lift and duration before crashing into the piston becomes a concern?
