    310 @ .020 is pretty nasty. The valves don't spend much time closed. :rofl:

    Hard to believe the price difference

    Buy from whoever you choose. Mancini has the best price, buy from them. Summit lost out on this sale. Who knows why their price is so far out of whack. May be just a typo. No one is "ripping you off". It's your choice on where to buy.

    Not all the Tracks are Closing!

    Our local track is still hanging in there. It's 4 miles out of town. I am a 15 min drive and can hear the cars on race day. (not loud or offensive but I can still hear them.) I hear train engines and whistles too but they don't go away.

    Not all the Tracks are Closing!

    Idiots! (county commission) Building houses is more important to them than a noisy race track. Like he said. We built outside of town to keep everyone happy and now you want to build houses right next door. We had a failed dog track that some wanted to change into a circle track and it failed...

    I bought a Sling Shot dragster today

    They are all cleaning up in ET class now. Box racers of course. They are hard to beat with a door car.

    Not all the Tracks are Closing!

    Not a huge deal but a step in the right direction. They milled and resurfaced from the concrete launching pad to the end of the 1/8th. I hear it is very smooth and the traction is good. Our local track is getting better every year...

    I bought a Sling Shot dragster today

    Looks like fun. Nostalgia drags are quite popular now days. They don't need to be fast just cool.

    Rod balancing

    My small block rods. They did a nice job.

    Bore limit?

    Good thing you are too far away. Unless he is building a 440 for a dragster or truck puller on alcohol or turbocharged, he probably doesn't need or could use a filled block. It sounds like he may be a newbie and even posted his question in the wrong forum.

    Bore limit?

    Just below the ridge is taper not out of round. THere is a lot of ring movement at the top of the bore when the combustion is the most violent and the piston is changing directions. There is always more wear at the top than at the bottom. To the op, send your block to the machine shop and have...
