Avantikid,
you could ask your questions in the 'Technical Discussion' section on this very forum...
Then there is 'forms and documents' on the SCTA homepage.

Haha... just being answered by our moderators!!

Some of them Compressed Air Roadsters have different sizes of engines.  The only legal size is "C", but it don't matter if you never make it to Impound.

The class was conceived for to solve something it has never come close to happening.

Thanks GH for answering my question, I do remember years ago a team from France brought over a car that was powered by air pressure tank and I think it only did about 120 mph, they brought with them a helicopter to video the attempt, was a failure, they were very disappointed . Dave

If you can't race it or take it to bed - it ain't worth having.

The SCTA website should start posting the daily run logs any day now.
