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?

I was born in 55 and remember going to fuel races from the 70s all the way to the 90s and you could watch the cars through burnout and stage and every other race see who was going to win by watching the zoomies for holes going away.

Just revisited all the episodes that WC posted, thanks! Waiting on the short last episode #51 now to be released. Sad to see the story end, it has been a great read with lots of nice video. Dave

SKINNER, CROSSER AND JOBE AA/FD! This is the second recreation by Bob Higginsn built to the 1963 specs but with the engine built to 1966 specs as when they won the Fuel and Gas Championships beating everyone!

First day firing the Skinner, Crosser & Jobe (later The Surfers) front engine fuel dragster on 97% Nitro (3% Toluene). The car is built to its 1963 version however the engine is built as it was when it won the 1966 U.S. Fuel & Gas Championships otherwise known as the March Meet. Bob Higginson did a wonderful job recreating the car and if you want to hear and see it, come out to Nitro Revival at Barona Raceway later this year!





TURN IT UP!!!!
