That is useful info although I am working with a four stroke engine.  Right now I am getting up at 5:00, going to work for long days, getting home, doing chores, and have only an hour or two before midnight to work on the computer modeling.  It looks like I was sent a beta version.  It is non functional and I am in no mood to troubleshoot it.  Other computer analysis programs are being investigated.

Hey Sparky, once you can't get any more free help inside the doors, send the rest of them up 15 & tell them to bring warm clothing!  grin

Speed Demon is so fast because Ron thought outside the box . Downforce , waste gate traction control , a manageable amount of power . George came because it went fast . The money didn't make it fast . It allowed them to keep replacing and improving things .

Th speed demon is awesome. Crew and owner included. I have a great deal of respect for all. But having motor tires and trans to spare as well as a paid crew to change and maintain not to mention prep are te reasons for the quantities of runs over 400.  All of which come down to budget. You have to have a car capable which is talent and experience but the spares and crew and best of everything is mjnkey plain and simple. I don't intend to deminish any accomplishments because that isn't te case.  Look at all te times the car has broke parts or motors etc. it's not like the car performs flawlessly over and over. Anyone with my budget would be going home after the first motor blew.

I took some interior pics I will post them when I can resize them. I also say jn the car. I am 5-10.5 230 lbs I was tight. The seat is all the way to te side and small. A larger seat repositioned will help greatly for a huh my size. Height could be an issue for someone too tall as I don't know that there is much room to move the seat back but my legs weren't too cramped a there is some room for knee bending.  The car is around 43" wide and 48 tall at the rear. It's pretty small. Good small hole in the air

Thanks for the answers. The frame I am using still has all the factory info on it. Vin is on the steering neck too. Was wondering about gas tanks and foot peg locations. On the standards and roadsters the tank is the 3.3 tank and the footpegs are mid mount. On the Customs and Low they are the 4.5 tank (which sits lower on the backbone) and forward controls. So nothing that is model specific can be changed ?

Go talk with a few of the instructors at: (or call at 623-245-4600 -- same # for both campus)

- MMI at 2844 West Deer Valley Road in Phoenix

- UTI at 10695 West Pierce Street in Avondale

You can always get volunteers or as interns (you have to do more paperwork for the latter)

Option 2 is to load the lakester up and bring it to a local car show or the Pavillions in Scottsdale.  Put a "help wanted" sign on it -- local crew to help build / fabricate / maintain and race crew needed for Bonneville and SoCal dry lakes events.  Lots of retired guys around the valley who attend the car events but have no place in their retirement community to have their own projects.  Some great machinists, fabricators, mechanics and more would inevitably like a gig like this to get them out of domestic duties.

Clarify, please:

This topic is listed ad "SCTA rules questions" and you're quoting BMST rules.  Which sanctioning body are we discussing?
