Tape

What does it mean when someone says like they have tape on their motor? This might be a stupid question but I am trying to learn as much as I can so anytime I hear something I dont understand I will ask questions about it till I do.

Jets so big it runs cooler . The flathead was on methanol and the animal also . They ran much cooler .
It boils down too somewhat of a hold over and monkey see monkey do .
Then there is the small power gains . Reduced wind drag , and a more optimum temp .
 
Heat is a part of it, yes. But the bigger thing is the air, keeps air away from the flywheel. Helps reduce drag just a bit, to add just a small bit of speed.
