are you wanting to test bulding saw skills or chain building skills? race chains on woods ported saws is not something id go for if the chains and bars are all the same id be a little more interested.

if you want bone stock chain, ok. but you could put 50hp or 100hp on that chain and it will cut the same if the rpm is the same.

your choice

thats why we use standard chain scott. if you can build a saw that will turn more rpm and hold it better in the cut than you win. atleast thats my idea of a build off. all paramiters need to be equal for cutting equipment and the port work will show the skill set difference.

It doesn't matter to me what the rules are, you're going to have to play by them. It is your call not mine but I know Eric is no stranger to building chains that are fast.

I would think anyone building saws would need to understand saw chain and vice-versa. I have seen where some of the buildoff/races stipulate certain chain,bar, etc, to 'level the field'. Why level it? This sounds like an awesome idea.

I see you guys have races at GTG's and have fun even though saws, chains, operator skill levels are variable. What is not to like?

Tree monkeys are tough to catch. lol
