Stock type clutch and flywheel for an asphalt street stock? As light as the rules allow or on the heavy side?
602 crate northeast dirt sportsman, my local home track opened up rules on exhaust. Any header (no stainless) but stainless tail and mufflers is legal. Is a tri y or custom header better then a dirt legal style?
