Well, the powerplants are coming too... just not as soon. All the major players have one... Star, Freedom, Cope, etc.

Frank, that new TL bodywork is pretty slick too! I sat on a replica at AirTech a few weeks back... I think Fred Collis may run one.

Can you explain the general rules of Pro-Stock to me? I think it's aminly a North American concept.

If it's stock how is it any different etc etc?

You do can racing like that too I know.

The old rules of Pro Stock bikes in NHRA said that the bodywork should be "stock" appearing and that the engine should be no more than 1500cc if it was a two valve and 1300 if it was a fourvalve ( They also had a rule about forked lifters aka Suzuki but I think that one is long gone ). Well the 1500cc two valve was a rule they made to keep Kawasaki in the game because Kawi didnt have any 4-valves that was competive. Soon somone remembered that Suzuki made a 2 valve ( the old GS1000 ) and they started putting the 2 valve head on a 4-valve bottom. This because the 2-valve gs have the studs placed so there was no room to go over, say 1220 ( 78mm ). This was to strech the rules a bit but it was given the tumbs up and because of Suzukis better gearbox and clutch , soon there was no other than Suzuki on the grid. Back to the rules ( I got a bit carried away here :) Now there is a 1427cc max on the fourvalve. This will make the two-valves obsolete this year ( and the records will go even further down. ).
I guess that we will see a 7,0something. Maybye even a 6.99 during the year.
If somone are interested in the rules they can be found at: www.nhra.com and at Prostar ( go through www.dragbike.com to find Prostar )
