I attend 4-5 events each year and need lots of flushing.

Stan,

Now you did it, I have to clean my keyboard from the coffee I just spit on it.

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.

hey everyone, my name is Shane and i joined the land racing forum so i could gather all the information i could about racing. a little about me, i used to live in Burbank California and moved to Lake Havasu City, Arizona where i'm attending college. One of my goals in life is to race a GMC powered roadster at ELMO and the salt flats. I have the engine and the ambition, and i suppose the rest takes time. Im here to learn, so i'm all ears.

Hi Shane

Welcome to LSR , first thing is do some soul searching to really make sure you can build a car all the way through.
There is a endless number of racing machines that were started but never got done & run, as it takes quite a commitment to do this - money to do the car right - space to build - tools - talent - time !! and a lot of heart for when things are not going too well and you wan't to through in the towel.
The great thing about this forum is you can get a ton of support and knowledge here to help you get it built
What class do you plan on running in with your GMC powered ride

Enjoy the ride, Don

Thanks for the welcoming Don. I want to run a vintage street roadster class with my GMC 270. I have a question for you though. If you were in my shoes, what would be a good class for me to run to get my feet wet?

Hi Shane

Boy that is all up to you, you might feel uneasy with your head out in the air at 100mph plus and would want a closed car'

Also depends on your building skills for making parts from scratch, the roadster class's are full of cars and i have always liked the Tanks

A GMC tank would be pretty neat too and you could build it so you are inside, it is all a personal choice

That is what is so neat about racing on the salt and the dirt , as there is just about a class for what you like for a racing machine

Some people really like the build process and some just buy a ride, that is up to you my boy

Have fun along the way, and enjoy each day as that is what it is all about

Don

Shane, best info gathering dates will coincide with the meets at El Mirage and Bonneville.  Before you pick a class, attend the races, talk to folks and get a rule book.  You will find the folks at the races are a lot of the same folks from this forum.

hey,  I'm Keith Platt from GA.  I have a 53 stude build in process.  it's your standard gutted rust bucket on a semi modern nascar chassis.  I have been working on this project for a few months.  I went to Wilmington last weekend for the first time.  it was incredibly cool.  Steve's run was very impressive.

Hey all!
I joined this site to get more information and help with a project that was created last year. 
A V-ROD Night Rod with a hayabusa front end with a street tire in the back.
We ran this last year for the 1st time at bonneville.  We had our gearing all wrong.  I think our top speed was about 126mph.  (every one starts some where right?)

Hi Billy

Welcome to the salt bunch, what class do you plan to run with what kind of engine?

I have been a tank fan since the late 50's at the dry lakes, and got to see Markley run 289 in 63 at the salt flats with that small ci hemi ' Priceless '

I hope you do a build log on your racer

Don
