More Power Through Improved Rocker Arm Geometry
Another of my old RaceScene TV Episodes. It was filmed at Crane Cams with
Ralph Johnson who worked with them under the old ownership of Crane. Ralph
shows how to maximize rocker ratio by using different length pushrods to
produce more power. He also discusses correct valvetrain geometry.

A drive in the 57
This is a quick video that I threw together to show the car driving. I'm
not happy with how much wind noise that was caught filming, so I will be
doing another video next time the car is out. Also my dad never really ran
any of the passes at full throttle since he still is getting used to
something with this much power. I have run it at full tilt and it is way faster than any of the runs in this
