As some of you know, last year I spun a rod bearing and hurt 2 rods and my crank. In a haste to repair and get ready for Drag Week our only option was to have the crank ground. When we pulled the pan after Drag Week to check the bearings however, we found the crank hadn't been fully cleaned up and we had badly worn bearings on 7 & 8. We decided that due to time constraints we would get a new crank rather than repairing mine. Silver lining: we ended up with an upgrade for Badmaro: a center counter weighted crank!
