    Another Killer bee issue

    So my battery is fully charged. I have the latest killer bee that DDM sells. The truck will not start with the killer bee on, as soon as I unplug it the truck will start. I've tried reading the forum but didn't come up with anything. What could be the problem?

    Flywheel gap

    What would happen to the engine if the coil gap was off by bit. The reason I ask is that I just bought a prostock 28.5 and bought a used 990 carb, new CY flywheel and coil. When I go to start the engine it starts, then as soon as I give it alittle gas it dies. If I lean the slow end in a bit it...

    Spark plug color

    So I'm in the process of breaking in my new OBR prostock 28.5. The carb setting are at factory setting. 1 1/4 out on low and 1 1/2 on the high. So far I've done 2 15 min slow 1/4 to 1/2 throttle runs with a 15 min cool down between the two. I'm alittle concerned about the color of the spark...

    Your opinions

    The flywheel you see in the pic suffered a bit of damage when the pullstart bolt backed out. Luckily I was just breaking in a new engine and was just putting around. No fins are broken, but some are chipped in a few places. Would you guys just replace the flywheel or do you think it will be...

    Zen vs CY

    Would you say that the zen pullstart is about the same as CY? I'm currently looking to replace mine, but I'm kinda in a pickle? Don't know which one to get. I mean they are all the same right? This goes the same with the flywheel and clutch. CY's are cheaper, I concerned that they might not...

I have tried simple green, alcohol, goo be gone, dish soap. I'm at a loss as to how to remove it. It's like little white specs all over...

    Racing in Lufkin, Texas

    Drove up to lufkin, Texas, it about a 2 hour drive from Houston. I painted up a woodster just for this race. I guess all those hours I spend on set up configurations paid off. I ended up placing 1st in the heat and also took 1st place in the main. This is the first race that I've won racing 1/5...

    Woodster Rear wing

    After tinkering around in the garage this pass weekend, I decided I needed to make my own wing. The first fab I did was out of 1/8 thick diamond plate, then I thought that was too much of an over kill. So I jumped in the truck and heading to Home Depot. There I found some a sheet Lexan of pc...
