Congratulations -- that's gotta be some sorta Y-Block record!

If you're building a roadster and using that engine, it could become a legitimate C/AIR contender.

  Stan, I have aluminum heads,or believe me it would be in a Roadster.
I run in GCC,  the record is only 265!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Just doing this for fun.Like I said my ultimate goal is running 200, (yes I know that will not get me the RED HAT)
And I do think it is a record for a Y-block.

Hi All

My name is Simon Oswald, I'm 42, from sunny West Sussex in the South of England (although I'm actually Scottish/South African).

I've done a bit of LSR in the past (had a nitroused Busa about 10 years ago), but am currently building a nitroused ZX12R to have a crack at Bonneville.

What could possibly go wrong?

Uhm, let's see -- what could possibly go wrong?

How 'bout the time, back in '03 (I think it was) when I went about re-mapping our ZX12r from gas to nitrous.  I entered the correct program and set the correct parameters -- butt, it turned out, forgot to hit the F7 key (or whatever it was) that would send the modified program to the ECU.  A few miles down the course I hit the button -- and about seven seconds later needed some new pistons and a bunch of head work.

Is that a good enough example of what could go wrong? grin grin

Hey all!
New here and trying to work my way into building a gsxr 1100 LSR motorcycle. I am currently buying parts all the necessary parts to build a turbo and nitrous motor, aiming for around 350hp. I'm also trying to build my knowledge base with info specific to landspeed racing. I'm fairly handy with fiberglass and carbon fiber so I plan on making my own streamlined fairings. I have yet to decide on a wheel base and several other specifics but I'm hoping I can pick up some of that info here!

Welcome, jl.  I would venture to say that you've found the best place to get scoop and trade information and have a good time asking questions -- in the whole danged world of land speed racing.  We've had scads of new folks that are slow to ask -- thinking that they'll get made fun of.  And then - after a while they realise that we're really here to help them enjoy the addiction I mean fun.

Enjoy, welcome, be safe, have fun, go fast.

And get rulebook(s)!  You'll get asked at least a dozen ties if you've got one yet - so you should and right away.  The (new) 2015 books are fresh - most of us don't even have ours yet but they're arriving daily - so the information is up to date.  Get three -- one for the shop, one for the coffee table, one for the back of the toilet. rolleyes
