Whatever you say skywalker. You are only 40 minutes away. I think that is about the closest we have ever lived to each other in dfw.

Thats cool. Long trip for you guys but i am guessing Bonneville (i am guessing that is the destination) is worth it. Do you have your "4 wheels" setup yet? I wish my father enjoyed racing! I am hoping to go to Bonneville in 2015 myself but on two wheels.

Its a very long trip, will be Bonneville. We all came over in 2007  and my dad got the 250 production bike Land speed record and is hoping to go out again. So i thought i would join him. I do not yet have my car, in the process of reading all the regulations and looking at the moment. It wont be for a couple years till we do come as it does cost a lot of  money to get bikes over, let alone a car to. Problem is my dad knows a lot more about bikes than cars. So there is large amount of reading to do, to find the right class etc.. Oh wicked,Good luck. Such an Amazing event and place :)

HI all  Mike Bourg here, My interest was peaked for the Bonneville scene by the fastest Indian movie a couple years ago, now I am going to have to go and see it for myself, and of course take a couple thousand pictures in the process. other than that just running around with my 58 chevy pickup and enjoying life.
Just became interested in the land racing at Bonneville and will be there this year taking pictures, one of my many pastimes.

Mike, toss a cheap scooter or bike in the back of the truck for riding out onto the salt.  Or drive something late model like an acura on the lake bed.  Do not go out on the salt in the 58.  It might get rusty.

MIGHT... Wobbly, might is a little weak.... it will start rusting when you take exit 4... but lots of folks take some really nice old stuff on the salt and as long as they realize the size of the cleanup job afterwards they survive.  Salt will find lots of hiding places... we clean and clean, but still occasionally find a little chunk of salt that drops off between Dec and Mar.

Welcome Mike, stop and see us on the salt.  8-)

Hey fellas,

I'm Tristan from Canada.  8-) I'm a Mechanical Engineer earning a living working for a methanol plant here in Medicine Hat, Alberta. I'm in the process of building up my 93 Ranger for a trip to Speed Week 2014 in the BMMP/C class. I'm green to the salt (as any 26 year old would be!), but it will be an awesome experience meeting and learning from some of you guys! As for racing, I raced my ranger at the drag strip here in town for 4 years before I went back to school and I was the project manager for Lakehead Formula SAE in 2011.

The ranger is a 5.0L Ford that I am in the process of putting a couple turbos on. The build-up will be decently substantial through the coming months, as I am rebuilding the engine, reconfiguring the wiring, switching to a new standalone system, building the roll cage, putting the turbo system together (including new intake and exhaust piping), as well as adding in all the safety equipment that SCTA requires. I'll start a build up thread in the near future.

Cheers!  :cheers:

Tristan, welcome to the addiction... there are a couple of guys with build threads going for mini trucks, read them as well as many of the others.  Lots of good ideas that will help you get your build going.  Have you been to the salt?  It is always best to attend a meet before being a participant.
Good luck and keep us posted.
