Re: The FORD Fudge Factor

Come on BD, surely you know that Ford and only Ford has ECOBOOST, yeah right. What it amounts to is nothing more than direct injection and a turbocharger which is, you guessed it; a combined 220 year old technology.

Re: WONDER WHY NHRA HAS QUIT SHOWING ENTRIES TO THE EVENTS

BD>"My bad" moparornocar. No problemo Kemosabe. Me thinks Cheby will not be part of that type of low life scam. They do not have to; they have pro stock by the tail with a downhill pull, plus most of the lower classes. A Ford engine has not won a class in the first 2 races.

Well, old dummy finally figured it out; on the event home page there is a search block up on the right side and seems you must search as this example "2015 gatornationals entry list", http://www.nhra.com/schedules/2015.aspx, http://www.nhra.com/events/event/gatornationals2015/, http://www.nhraeventr...

Elim., TOP Dragster, etc. And showed the brand of engine. The entry list is no longer there and for m...

WONDER WHY NHRA HAS QUIT SHOWING ENTRIES TO THE EVENTS

Could it be because the Ford entries/Ford powered entries have for some time been very few and will now be almost none existent? We should know that NHRA has always sucked up to Ford in order to pacify the Ford fan in order to get their attendance. With SCUMBOSS going to Chevy, no fake Ford engines ...

A BETTER IDEA FOR THE FORD CAMMER

A BETTER IDEA FOR THE FORD CAMMER I truly believe if Ford had used this design for the engine it would be the primary engine in Funny Car, Top Fuel, TAFC & TAD and perhaps Pro-stock. It would still be a chain drive, but use an arrangement in the shape of a Y. There would be perhaps a No. 41 double r...
