If they competed in 125cc, they could call it a SizzleLean...I think I'll go slash my wrists, after that one.

Default THIS COULD END UP BEING EMBARRASSING...

Seriously, I get the feeling, if this makes it to Laguna Seca, things could get embarrassing.



In-the-box, outa-the-box or Jack-in-the-box, it all sounds a bit too "Rube Goldburg".



Hope it works, but I sure ain't gonna be doin any Off Shore Betting on this one.

Is he standing in line for handouts while swindling old people or did you mean that he is swindling old people who are standing in line for handouts?



Oops, I forget. EVERYONE in DC is standing in line for handouts. Sorry I mentioned it.

A better name for KBucket would be Nostradummy.

Hey Buzz, do you think KBucket's new nickname Nostradummy will earn me another lifetime free pass?



Look! What's that up in the sky? Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No! It's Nostradummy on a broomhandle!

you forgot inline 6



Best engine layouts:



inline 6

opposed 6

90' v4

60 degree v12



All of the above are naturally balanced -ergo- smoooth.



worst layouts:



45 degree twin

inline 3, 4, or 5

90 degree v6

singles



yes yes my bike has an inline 4. The advantage is that it's cheap to manufacture and lightweight for its power output. The problem are the vibrations inherent in these layouts which neccessitate counterbalancers.



Doesn't mean they aren't fun.



I think I would categorize the motor of this bike is more of an inline 4 than a V.

I think a good flogging will suffice.

I had to read the article two times (through a beery haze) to understand the complex nature of the engine/chassis setups but it just might be crazy enough to work!

I thought they were done away with because the fans sucked up all the track debris and threw it up into the faces of the following cars.
