Anyone who had ever built hotrods or racers agree with you 100%.beachcomber said:CC,
that's a hangover from my Drag Racing days with V8 s !!
Rather than throw away grenaded engines I kept them less innards for set ups and "whatifs".
I'm now going a stage further and obtained a non V5 [non - titled ] frame so I can try out / duplicate any set ups on the bench first without worrying about scratching paint / getting a hernia !!
