Hello Land Speed racers !


My mane is Laurent, I'm CAD Designer and mechanical engineer.
We live in French, we are kustom builder (motorcycle, HotRod, altered dragster…), our named company is Odyssey Motorcycles.
Please take a look on our website : http://www.odyssey-motorcycles.com/site.html

We will compete this summer for the first time at the BUB.
We want to compete in 1000-APS-AG class with two different riders (My friend Bertrand : the owner, and me).

We build the bike from A to Z (frame, wheels, swingarm, fairings, tank...), except the engine. We will use a V4 from an Aprilia RSV4 Factory (around 180hp).
You can take a look on my twitter account, and follow the progress : https://twitter.com/_L_o_R_a_N_.

Thank you for your help.
See you on salt...soon !

Hi B Rod

Just tried your site link and it did not work, would like to see your bikes.

Do you have any pictures of your new salt runner you can post.

Thanks, Don

How's it going everyone? My name is Nick. I'm 34, enjoy walks though old town dumps, junkyards, loud engines, and the smell of nitro fumes. Some of you guys may "know" me from a certain "hokey Acura" forum (I've been a lurker here and see some familiar handles). I used to be a musician/pawnbroker/bartender/promoter/wrecker/sound engineer/bum that slept in 'til noon, but I got some new friends and a job at a machine shop. Life is good when you have access to basically every tool known to man.  My boss has a '36 Buick with a straight 8 motor we hope to run at Speed Week this year. Although I'm a little hazy on the classes, but I believe we'll run Vintage Coupe/XXO. Ok well, that's my attempt at an intro and some humor.

Hi Nick

Welcome to the salt stuff, used to run a 37' chevy gasser so looking forward to seeing the Buick coupe with the inline engine.

Being a machine dude is a neat thing.

Hey there my name is Cory.
I'm from Oklahoma, I have yet to compete in any land speed racing but I have a built under way now.
I came here seeking aero advice.
I will be running a 1992 Ford Mustang Coupe.
I will have an LS motor with a T56 (faceplated).
Still debating on whether to go FI or stay N/A.
But I'm looking for reaching 200+ with around 600-675rwhp.
Texas Mile 200 Mph club here I come!

Aahh Pellandini, one of my Favorites! I once got 'this close'  :-P to buying one of his A Series powered Mini based sportscars!

Hello,

I figured its time to make an introduction since we will be running  in August.  Started building a RMR on Christmas eve.  Its been a long  six months since this is strictly my "weekend" project.  I have a small hotrod shop in Sacramento called Eddie's Chop Shop.  Website is currently down since I am not so good with the website.... but if you have a facebook account I have a page with plenty of build pictures etc.

  I had one of my builds in hotrod a couple months back that you may or may not remember it was a mid-engine 37 ford.

I met Eddie at El Mirage in May. Nice kid, tons of talent. He has a good mentor in Dennis Mariani.

Thanks Dan. Keep calling me kid and I'm going to get younger friends!!  There is a strong possibility I may make El Mirage in July for tech and some shake down runs!  I might need to be pointed towards a club that doesn't mind long haired "kids" with ugly rmr's!
