Crane HEI Distributor

Years ago GM’s HEI distributor was a great idea. The all-in-one design meant no external coil or CD box, so wiring and installation was a piece of cake. The problem, however, was a stock HEI just couldn’t keep up with the needs of a performance engine. When either the compression or the rpm’s got too […]

European Dirt Racing

Somewhere in Europe (at least we think that’s where this takes place) they have some kind of crazy combination of dirt track, rally racing that they call Autocross. It looks like some type of funky go carts running a rally course, except instead of time trials they are all on the track at once. And […]

Jeff Taylor

In racing, it’s the drivers that get all the glory, but there are many people in many different roles that are just as critical to a great night of racing. Maybe you’ve heard of Mooney Starr, he’s one of the more colorful people in racing, but he’s no driver so he doesn’t get the same […]
