Hey guys,
My name is Kyle.
I currently don't have a land speed car, but plan to build a lakester.
I just have to get a few other projects done first.
I work at Hollywood Hot Rods to find these projects.
Nothing else is that interesting. Haha.

Hey, all!
My name is David.
Just like you, I'm sharing this passion for cars and speed.
I'm currently working as a truck driver.
Not too much to say about me.

I love a clean car. That's why I made a top with the best electric pressure washer for cars. This way my car is always clean.

Welcome guys... most of us are busy getting ready to race, others are giving us salt envy, teasing us with the way Bonneville was before strip mining....

Hi all,
I am an enthusiastic collector of facts, photos and models of land speed record cars.

A regularly encountered problem being that to get all the facts straight on older records, record cars etc... is usually hindered by a lack of correct information.
Member of the Speed Record Club, but living in the Netherlands where there is hardly even an awareness of the existence of land speed racing, let alone any interest.

So, a big fan, but from a distance.
Still, want to try and get to the salt for once!

Hey everyone.

Aaron here.  Some friends call me Joker, but I answer to either.  I work for a software company as a Cloud Engineer.  I enjoy modern muscle cars, mostly those with a HEMI in them, dogs, racing, and turning my own wrenches.  I have only raced 1/4 mile tracks up till now.  I found an article about the 130mph club and want to give that a try.  I drive a 2011 Mopar Edition Charger.  #678 out of 1000 produced for North America.  I have a co-pilot that goes everywhere with me.  Her name is Lucy and she's my service dog.  I hope she will be allowed out on the salt.  I joined the forum today to see what info I can gather around joining the 130mph club this year.  Hope to see everyone in September.

Yo, Aaron.  It's Slim - the head handlebar holder at the site.  Welcome.  And welcome Lucy.  You'll find out enough stuff about everything here -- but think about bringing boots or something for Lucy.  Lotsa dogs will get salt stuck between the toes and it's really uncomfortable for 'em.  Also water, sunshade,stuff like that-- Lucy might be able to tell you.

Welcome and enjoy it here, you hear me?

Hey all, I'm Tyler.  From the Wichita, KS area... A good friend and I have wanted to get into LSR and finally decided we're going to pull the trigger and build/buy a car.  Currently in the research phase, waiting on a couple rulebooks from SCTA-BNI and scouring the internet for general info (and YouTube for videos).  Haven't decided what vehicle platform we want to mess with, we both have a goal to make it to 200mph though.  As for me, I work as an industrial electrician and play bass in a local metal band.  Enjoy wrenching, tinkering, shooting, and will never let a good deal on a guitar pass me by (some say it's a sickness).  I look forward to learning what I can from this forum and can hopefully contribute here and there.

Tyler, there are at least a half dozen salt racers in the Wichita area... PM me a phone number and I will introduce y'all to a few of them.

Hi everyone. Thought I would update you. The car was on the salt but a persistent problem stopped us running. We know what the problem is but we could not fix it on the Salt despite a huge effort by all our crew. So the race car is back at the race shop for some work and we aim to be at the next race in September on the salt.

Sorry to hear you and the team had problems Geoff. Good luck getting them ironed out, and best of luck for some good runs in September.

Hi there, I'm John from Texas. This will not be too long since I hate this. I've been playing with bikes since I was a kid. I have a stable of bikes tons of parts, been collecting vintage Kawasaki and some Cb750 hipo parts for quite a while. Bonneville has always been a dream and at this point in my life it's time. So with that said I want to be ready for next season, first off I have no clue and I'm doing, I'm doing all the reading I can and it looks like I might have something I could use to start with Here's where I am, I have a few choices I have a 1972 Denco frame with a 74 Z1 engine that does low 9's high 140's, a 82 KZ 1395cc Smalltire dragbike 2 speed auto, back halved frame under construction 85% done, a CB750 under construction as a R.R. bike with an R.C. ENGINEERING Cobra engine. I really don't want to mess with the Z1 and the KZ is the most complete. I have realistic expectations, but it would be nice to crack 175, or do I need to go get a F.I. Busa. I always wanted one. I ordered a rule book and from the outside looking in drag bikes are not far off from L.S. And believe me I know it's not going to be that simple
