Darien Grisel Racing Update

It is hard to believe that we had to wait 167 days to go racing again after the Winternationals but thankfully we got to go to Sonoma last week-end.

Things started out extremely well with a great 5.24 ET at 277 MPH.

When Does One-Thousandth Of An Inch Equal a Mile?
Measuring tools are the most critical tools in your shop. They must be of high quality, they must be calibrated, if not you will surely not read a critical dimension correctly and then that engine you just built will be blown up before it gets warmed up. Micrometers, dial bore gauges, setting fixtures, RA surface measuring tools, stem height gauges, dial indicators, calipers, run out gauges, hardness testers. All of these tools just have to be spot on accurate. This is one area you simply cannot compromise. The higher the quality resulting in the higher cost of measuring tools will in fact pay for themselves over time.

The Harley Davidson® WLA45

The Harley Davidson® WLA45
It might be a stretch to say that Harley-Davidson® won the war in Europe, but there were certainly instrumental in the Allied victory. Very early into WWII, it was apparent that troops needed total mechanization. Special motorcycles were developed for the infantry and armored divisions.
