I'm tickled to have an old-school modder on the site. The description of his motor mods -- changing the valve timing to make an ersatz Atkinson and still managing 55mph on what little power was left - is just awesome stuff.

I think, Xpedro, you would have made a decent racer. What with however long it must have taken to build speed in your little Sprite on such modest power, you must have learned some skills at not giving up the speed once you'd acquired it.
