I trained Isshin ryu..... till Brown belt..... Then got a DWI so could not go..... Then trained at home...
Cool trick, are you the only one doing that?Oh if ya look at second pic above, you will see I don't use carbide ski runners. I wrap the ski loop entire length for ice drags to slide FAST !!!! Bitch to keep straight IF your sled not setup correct on pull though. BUT FAST compared to runners, scags etc.... Put them in oven till warm, then bend them....
Like totally bitch’n video’s! Where you ever featured in some snowmobile magazine’s in the mid ‘80 to ‘90’s? The only type of snowmobile racing I’ve done in the summer is Water skipping, 1990 Tundra with a 580 Rotax from a totalled Mach1. Summer Hummer. Unfortunately the venue in Atikokan, Ontario; Canada had to put a halt to it because of the environmental impact it had done over the years... real shame racers from across Canada and the USA would participate! Gainesville is now the biggest water skipping event to my knowledge. I have duel citizenship, you can read more about myself in About. Thanks for sharing the pics and videos! 😎Cool trick, are you the only one doing that?
Did you beat Jeff with his donated rotary plate? How much do you trim off the plate to give you a edge.. probably a secret! 🤫
I use a 207 valve disk. The cover plate I use is off a 75 340 Free Air RV motor. A straight shot plate, no angle, then run short boots to carbs.. Or the CrankShop Cover bored to 48mm. 45MM NON-INJECTION RV COVERSDid you beat Jeff with his donated rotary plate? How much do you trim off the plate to give you a edge.. probably a secret! 🤫
That cover plate from the Crank Shop is a piece of jewelry dude! Short boots probably help with top end, you mentioned that you use a 207 disk, would that have the same advantages of shaving the disk? Non injected cover, what would lubricate the disk and gears; just mixed fuel I’m presuming. Yesterday I mentioned have you ever experimented with different ski saddles, the placement of the bolts that run through them; some older sleds would have three different holes on the saddle; might actually help to lift the skis to your preference. As for your competitor Jeff, you mentioned that he’s got you on the last 3/4, have you ever tried experimenting with different secondary helix ramps and gearing? I know that it’s a time consuming process, and your primary clutching will be thrown out the window; as well as your carb set-up. Have you ever like checked out Thunder Products? There’s some like really cool trick parts that might be of interest to you! Might give you the winning edge against your competition.... unless their tuned into this conversation! Ever give a thought about getting into water skipping? Great way to cool off on a hot summer’s day, and to work on your tanage dude! There has to be some water skipping footage somewhere from the Atikokan event that is near my home town, Thunder Bay, Ontario. Like thanks for the update again! 🥋🥊
Next update to bug ya LOL.... I took my cardboard tunnel template out to my brothers today. He built my rear tunnel enclosure. Not completed yet though, he needs to do the section that will meet the rear of the seat still. All parts just sitting on top for a picture is all, and get more measurements. The seat will just use 3in. wide Velcro strips to snap it to tunnel to remove at any time. Here few pics just for comparison from old to new, parts just sitting there, LOOOONG ways to go before fitment and paint. Coming pretty cool... ??
