On a SLOOOWWWW cold blustery Wisconsin night,
Tuesday night club race at the Tri-Clone.
In Stock, Tony Balisterri Tq,d with his 1st 34 lap run, good job Tony. Dave Hitz won the Main, Pat Simkins was 2nd, Tony B 3rd. In a very humbling experience Hays Reeling & Dick Wood ran the MVP and stumbled home with their tails between their legs.

In 19-turn, Corey Heft TQ'd 39:02, 2nd Jon Foister 39:03, 3rd Hays Reeling IV 38:00, Bill Sullivan 38:01, Bob Wright 38:03. Corey won the Main, Foister 2nd, the rest is so unclear. Sullivan, Wright & Reeling sat out the mains for various reasons.

In Modified only Rob Murdock ran the main, so he won!!

Hays, I hope you dont mind me copying and pasting your recap on here.
Just want to get the word out.

Not much happening at the track today.Everyone was scrubbing tires,which is taking more time than everyone had hoped due to the low track temps and record low air temps.Stock racers are stuggling to find HP with the MVP motors.Tomorow will another day to struggle with track conditions as the weather forecast is for lower temps with gusty winds and rain showers.

these mvp motors are turds.. plain and simple.... we usually run high 6 second laps with the trinity motors.... we have been able to get as low as 7.0 but after about 5-9 laps they drop to 7.5-80 .. they just suck....

anyone got any mvp speed secrets to post??? we are definatly hurting in the horspower department... our track record is a 34 400 i doubt we will even see 34... most guys times show fast 32 lap runs..... but the weather has been better today.... we have controled practice to.. so the stock guys arent dodging out of the way of the mod guys.....we have our club race tonight... ill hopefully have lap times.. i know hays usually gets them before me lol and posts em on the confrence....

Burbs,
I have never tuned an MVP but I know some guys that went up to the ROAR carpet nats when they ran them. One comment they made was that the hoods needed constant aligning for some reason, so check that after each run.

I also heard guys were zapping the can backwards then re-zapping to take some magnet off to get the RPM up.

Or heck just over gear the heck out of it so it gets super hot which will kill some magnet.

Try narrowing the brushes 0.020 on each side to make them almost square should take away some rpm and run cooler ( according to Big Jim) good luck ....
