    Default Long wheelies!!! ALX power football pitch length wheelies

    Videos from last weekend.

    Lost my header bolt again towards the end dam thing won't stay in

    Rpm what I wanted only 14780 @ 49.1 mph
    But noticed my brakes were dragging on and the grass was little long.

    Do you use Spring washers on your header bolts ? Or maybe the thread needs helicioling ?

    I've never been bothered in speed until this past week or so Deans got me going.

    So all this speed stuff is new to me ��

    I have something new next week maybe that will give me a huge advantage

    That's my issue.

    Header is so tight hard to get a nut on and the studs just come out.
    Is the header flat ? As it looks a bit bent but that could be the pic ? If it was Bent that would put a lot of pressure on the stud , you have far to many washers on the one stud , why do you need so many ?
