    Default Roll On Oppy!

    Roll on Oppy!




    I wanted to clear some apparent confusion. More and more often now I get comments about how "great" I think my engine is. I do think my little Oppy is a power house, but I know its not the baddest thing on the turf. Since adding the Isky cam it is getting close though! I love the Opposed twins and I think If anyone ever completely built one they wold be pretty un-beatable. The OHV singles are good engines too, and can be built into great engines, I know this as I have been beat by alot of them! I have my reasons why I prefer the Opposed Twins but that doesn't mean I think they are the only viable race engine for the class. Bot configurations of engines in the C/P class can win races if built right, put on a winning chassis with a winning driver.
    Build you a good chassis and the best engine you can and lets swap dirt and quit worrying about who thinks they got what, we have a flag that tells us about that!

    How much variation is there within classes (CP, AP, BP, etc.)?

    Do some racers have a definite advantage over others based on the machine or are the differences negligible and all is left to how well you drive?

    Alot depends on the machine, the driver and the track.
    BP's when built right can be wicked fast and a handful to drive...definitely not a beginners mowchine! On the other hand, an AP even with much less engine most have a very short and light chassis and can be a handful to drive just as much!

    Often the fastest lap times of the day will come from the SP class, and the fastest speeds through the trap from the BP or FX class.

    This thread explains the different classes.

    The mowchine will definitely make a difference. Horsepower, handling & Driving win races, in no certain order. Some will say you can have too much horsepower, I would disagree...you can USE too much and over power the track, but I would definitely rather have some left on tap than to run out of engine!

    I guess I never really answered how much variation in the classes...
    The Prepared Class "Ranking" from least HP to Most would be : A/P, S/P, C/P, B/P . Even the little A/P's are fast but the difference in HP from that to a B/P is the difference in your momma spanking your butt for stealing a cookie to a 300 pound Tatooed biker planting a size 16 in your seat cover for stealing his Harley.

    The other interesting thing I have found is the different types of people in the classes.

    Some moms ARE the 300lbs bikers... or worse
