All the markings in the world will do NOTHING for equipment failures, Non-English speakers not understanding anything, and completely selfish Jerks doing what they want.....

I have a multi-level system in mind that will work:

1-Well marked finish line is a given as is better Rookie training
2- Distance count-down signs that begin just after the finish line 5-4-3-2-1-0
3- At the "Zero" marker,,, orange plastic soft netting across the course to entangle the vehicle
4- At "Zero" plus 1 (distance to be determined) Real Barrier Netting with parachutes that deploy as per Bonneville
5- At "Zero" plus 2 and just inside the out of bounds line,,, a Tractor-Trailer Lowboy rig with a Bulldozer sitting on it. It would be quite the motivator for perfectly functional
     braking systems that have redundancy built in....

We might have to reduce our current course length to One Mile, and used the .3 mile for additional stopping distance....

We get serious or we get gone,,,, It is up to us in the SCTA to make it work.....

Thoughts ?

My thoughts are that:
1. The SCTA and the BLM would never approve anything that would injure or kill a participant.
2. The first time a participant was injured or killed by a barrier as you describe, their attorneys would own the SCTA.

The solution must be one that allows for bonafide runaway vehicles or driver/riders having medical problems.
That is why the solution is to just turn the track around and the SCTA can OWN the backdoor and never allow spectators in that area.

With the severity of the situation, maybe turning the track around isnt such a bad idea. Better than not running.

Hi All,
A short time ago I heard some talk about making the sewn-in arm restraints illegal. Does anyone know different?  Something about the need for the restraint being placed at the small part of the wrist, I took that as to mean just above the hand. As you know sewn-in restraints are a bit closer to the elbow. Anyhow I am ordering a new fire suit and prefer the sewn-in style but...
Thanks & Merry Christmas,
Chris

We've gone over 200 and set records with 3/4-inch spacers -- for the same reason you want to use them.

I have used wheel spacers at Bonneville and nobody ever noticed or said anything about them. But I never used 3/4 inch spacers. Don't think I would be comfortable with that.




    What thickness did you use?

  Would anyone know if wheel spacers are allowed at Bonneville? The project Im working on needs another 3/4 inch of space so the rear tires do not rub the inner body surface. Longer studs and a properly machined spacers will cost a lot less than custom built wheels so the reason for the question. No mention is made in the rule book 2.G Wheels or on the inspection sheet.
