This may get people irritated, but a few will laugh and agree. When I use the word YOU, I am not refering to anyone in specific here.
Society has "dumbed down" and gotten lazy. There's 24 hrs in a day, use them. Don't think that you're on a fixed income because of a lunchpail job and can't afford it.
You want fancy parts, a big engine, a good induction system, learn how to make them yourself, or work harder, smarter and make money and buy them.
I like my tractor pulling hobby. Some say it's a waste of money but I say it makes me work harder, smarter and make better decisions in my business. It's also driven me to learn how to make from scratch or modify existing parts on my own.
And yes, I have a couple kids, a family life, etc. Just like every other person and yes, I'm frugal when it comes to my antique pulling tractors.
Nothing is impossiable but some things take a long time. Today I'm useing a few hours of spare time in the morning to make a set of sleves and billet rods for an engine. Tomorrow I'll probably get up a little extra early and work on my rod design a little more....
