Chris, I think the 130 Club is an excellent way to get a taste of it. I'm going to assume that you've talked to someone in the USFRA about your Pickemup. I don't know the details of the class. Good luck.  :cheers: Wayno

Believe "street" safety gear.  130 is difficult - good luck.

Drive shaft loops are good idea. . . .

saltflats.org? check the rules there.
