Being a geezer headed for 74 in January all I can say is; it's hard not to become a victim of your past successes. But, if you can keep on learning and studying all that past knowledge can keep you going ahead of the competition.

What I find is a lot of guys that grew up on the computer donít appreciate that the machine is not innately smart. People who did things put that data in there. The cool thing is it can be manipulated quickly which lets you put different takes on the data thus taking different information away from what it may appear say.

But in the end, thereís no escaping that new obsoletes old.

I use my ti30 calculator so no real computer needed for basic stuff. I usally measure everything. Computer cant help unless the numbers are right. I still use scratch paper and store the correct numbers in the computer after i do all the calc. Havent found a good program that is actually usable. Displacment and basic bore storke calc is not issue but calc the speed of the air moving through the intake is the hard one to do with the computer. Go figure think computers were supposed to make that stuff easier.

You have to have the experience to know what is going to work and not. With the knowledge of years of racing you will know what piston speeds are too high and when to use a smaller cam to slow it down.

Quench is your friend. Zero deck the block. Run a piston that gets your target compression ratio for your chamber volume and fuel you will be using. Check piston to valve clearance. Have fun. Be happy.
