Here is the first race video of the Rocco. Unfortunately I lost count and did an extra loop through on this run so my time sucked for this run, guess I was just having too much fun and didn't want to stop.

ARRRRGGHH! So i was leaking coolant and oil from the head gasket. First head gasket came in bent. decided to go 4 layer steel instead. Then i read on a different forum that you can remove the thick shim from the 4 layer to raise your compression. Tried/failed. the pistons would hit the head when turned over by hand, removed cams to make sure all valves were closed. New gasket and bolts came in today. installed, good compression, wont start, kicks a little some time. :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: going to check it out more tomorrow, done for the day :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead:
