This new LSR vehicle is front steer, independent rear brakes, candy apple red and still on warranty. I have applied for a low SCTA

number to make it easier to attach to the basket. I may have to add ballast because it was built for racing in grocery stores and

uncontrolled slippage could happen. Check that padded roll bar. Dan Warner has created a class for a single entry. A case of suds

stripped his duds.


FREUD



The classes for this


F TMF              Female   Two Moving Feet
M TMF             Male       Two Moving Feet
D SMF             Drunken   Slow Moving Feet
F LSMF            Female    Long Shopping Moving Feet
M SMF             Male       Shopping Moving Feet


I don't know what minimum the SCTA will set for them, but if you be faster than 1 mph in the D SMF you will be disqualified.... grin

This vehicle will pass inspection, at Salt Talks, immediately.

Zip lock bags will be provided to hold your 50/50 tickets. Just deposit them in the basket.

Free cleaning as you leave the salt, at the end of the meet, by the firemen.

Guaranteed records the first time you run. Barrett can sleep during your run and still announce the time

at the end of his nap.

SCTA has no control over "buying a ride and a record" in Porkpie's classes.

Brilliant suggestion. That would double the number of classes.

What's the address of SCTA?

For setting a record you get a hair net.

The only problem with Bob D. driving he would spin it out pushing off the starting line. Might be to much for him to handle. Maybe the propster could add a rubber band driven propeller to it. Just a thought. grin evil

Freud, don't worry about how much bandwidth you're using (well, don't worry too much).  Since last fall's shootout coverage I've had the site running on a bigger system -- because of all the folks that were online at that time.  There's room now for your photos.  Thanks to everyone for making the site as popular as it is.

As for the shopping cart-liner -- you aren't the first, and there's likely to be some real competition.  How could you have forgot about Judy Sight's cart?  She's the "Baglady" that goes through the car lines awaiting inspection.  She passes out paperwork and other necessaries to all going to inspection.  Her cart has many miles on it from doing duty for years.  You'll have to hide some nitrous in the tubing, I expect, with nozzles for the operator, if you're hoping to win out over her more skilled operation of the thing.

I would like a little rules clarification on whether the M or F operator is allowed to wear Talledega Nikes or has to use run of the mill Wall Mart, made in china skinny tennys. The wide Talledegas may give the D class an unfair advantage in balance retention.

I asked for a ruling regarding Kaopectate.

The SCTA board ruled it was not a fuel. They considered it a lubricant.

That allows many more entries in the gas class.

Freud,

Have the motor's been built yet? Any dyno time? Are there plans to run them for any length of time on the dyno to check out the front drives etc?

Thanks,

Tom G.

Asking questions is one's only way of getting answers. As a young boy I was always taught that there is no such thing as a stupid question. It suggests that the quest for knowledge includes failure, and that just because one person may know less than others they should not be afraid to ask rather than pretend they already know. In many cases multiple people may not know but are too afraid to ask the "stupid question"; the one who asks the question may in fact be doing a service to those around them.

The engines are built and just recently Marlo and Les have discussed dyno time for them. They were developed for the Treit and

Davenport lakester. The lakester was the "mule" for refining equipment for the 'liner. In my opinion, the drives are totally reliable. The

belt system was severely tested on the lakester. Several parameters were established that gave a realistic guide as to the capability of

the belts. I am trying to imagine what the dyno adapter would look like to test the drive as it is in the 'liner and I will just wait to see how

Les answers that situation. Dyno testing will be in Calgary, Canada, but I will be there when it's conducted, if my Witness Protection

Officer will allow me to travel.

I spoke with Marlo tonight and he is ecstatic over the new front end that was delivered to him yesterday, after a prolonged time. Add to

the time for building the parts, a screw up in the delivery by the freight company, and you may feel his frustration. All's well that ends

well.

Compare it to a brides wedding dress being lost at the cleaners.

Several things may keep me from posting fotos of the assembly for a couple weeks. A soon as I can, I will.

Tom, thanks for asking.

SSS, Drury's main concern is if Judy Sight's decides to run NAKED.

He can't get up for that class change.
