Are ya keepin up with all this OJ? grin What's OJ short for, ya last name isn't Simpson is it? evil
If you plan on getting yourself down in there or even looking through the nose, you will need to come up with a helmet with enough front opening depth to see over the chin area plus the mandatory head n neck crap. Put the helmet on, standing straight put your chin on your chest, if you can see your feet that'll work. If ya belly's in the way......build a door car.  undecided

Nope, not Simpson & the glove don't fit me either!
I haven't missed anything, my pea brain is processing and absorbing at full speed.  If I ask the same questions next week its' because I temporarily confused myself.

As you can see there are a lot of people here willing to share there knowledge, unlike most other motor sports. Tanks are a different animal & salt racing is a whole different animal even to straight line airport stuff. Weight & balance & front end geometry are hugely important on the salt, you'll get basically the same advice from tank/lakester guys & then a theoretical variation from others. You are about to embark on building an oversize ship in a bottle where everything is a compromise & the rewards are huge.

A friend that raced competitive NHRA 'Stock' class went to visit Bonneville and was shocked at the attitude.  He said that his fellow racers at an NHRA event were a secretive, backstabbing vindictive bunch that celebrated whenever a fellow racer got 'tore down' by tech but everybody he talked to in Bonneville would drag him over to their car, enthieustically tear the car half apart to show him what they'd done to run so fast.  Quite a difference.
