    Last chance, Daytona


    Just a last minute reminder to anyone wanting to go to Daytona or if you're going and will be bikeless, we still have room for an extra person and 2 bikes, leaving this Tuesday at 7pm sharp and returning Friday the 14th. The cost for you and your bike round trip and lodging will be $500-$600 (probably closer to $500 but that will depend on fuel costs)
    We're taking a large late model motorhome, the only thing crappy about this thing is the Ford V-10 hunk o junk under the hood

    What's there to figure out? The Chevy 8.1 V-8 has more power and torque than both the ford and dodge V-10s. In this application the 8.1 has 100 MORE ftlbs (485) of torque than the ford V-10 and 40 more (340) horsepower. Why waist the time and money on developing a V-10 when their V-8 smokes the competion?

    There's no replacement for displacement

    Only 340 HP? Last time I checked the Dodge V10 was making 500????? in Viper trim, and it's got an ancient valve train....

    Sorry Mark, I haven't been taking my meds, and I'm playing Devil's advocate to everyone....
    Have fun in Daytona, and I hope your ice cream melts on ya!
