Lisa, great endeavor and I really like the Polaris bikes; but what about Indian's proprietary engine, if you're using a "modern" powerplant? Look forward to more in the future.

My name is Mike. Born in 68. I am putting together a 69 VW fastback to run on the salt and possibly other land speed runs in other places. Have raced and played with VWs offroad in class 5 unlimited for a short time. Sold that car, now to go fast in a VW with much less suspension and in a straight line. Have been reading here for a bit of time and was finally able to sign up to post. Looking forward to chat with everyone.

Mike   
Welcome Mike, I applaud you for taking the speed challenge on with a VW.
The 1st, few engines I built were VW's, once you have it in your blood your always a VW person - Just Love Em!
Good luck with your build  cheers
Thank you. Like most people in the VW scene it does stick in the blood. But I do have other vehicles past and present of other makes and models so I am not much biased on labels.  grin But for now I have a goal to set, and it is with an ACVW.

As you can now see, I've assigned Sean a location.  Maybe that'll joggle his elbow - and when he next visits this Forum he'll change it to his real town.  We look forward to hearing from you soon, Sean.

Hi Sean

Tell us more about your Tank & where you is?

G Don

Hey folks,

Updated my profile's location  smiley. "I is" in Cameron, North Cackalacky (south of Raleigh ~30-40mins).


Tanker-wise,... (the important stuff,  grin)

... I'm sorting thru some measurements today, doing a mock up with the Hellcat tins & decidin' on the power plant, trans & rear end. (I've got a few on hand) It's a really tight budget build -with no actual budget to speak of (sound familiar?). Tryin' to do an early ~60's powered (read cheap) build, but still get some speed out of the old girl.

Never been to Bonneville, so tryin' to keep things simple & make goin' to the salt a more than one time experience with some good buddies & the fambly.

So here's to makin' memories & enjoyin' life cheers,

Sean

PS: God Bless & Godspeed!

Sean,
Welcome from another NC Dude! Nashville here, about 45 miles East of Raleigh. Been through Cameron many times as I had relatives that lived in Southern Pines. To bad the ECTA does not run at Maxton anymore, about 50 miles from you.
You will find a tremendous wealth of knowledge here and answers to questions you have not even asked!   huh  grin  cheers

I am SLOWLY working on a 1983 Dodge Rampage for the BMMP class and will have it ready for one of the ECTA's Wilmington, OH meets next year!

Let me know if there is anything I can help you with.

Sean, STOP... before you do anything, do you have a rule book?  The rules for lakesters are easy, it is all the other stuff... safety... that is hard and you will only want to do it once. 

Most here will suggest you attend a meet first to see what you are about to get yourself into... taking ideas from other vehicles is a lot easier than reinventing the wheel... most will tell you what they would have done different after the fact... what they would change in their designs.  Those are the guys to listen to before you start building.

Thanks for the Howdy Gregg, I made it to Maxton the last year they ran & even got to sit in on the Driver's meeting. I was there early & figured why not hear what it was all about. Love the Rampage, you buildin' a 2.2? Best of luck in O-H-10,... Thanks for the welcome.

Pictures wise: I can't get any to load from my desk top. huh,... what's the easy way to get some up?

The book I have I bought in '06,.. I had planned on runnin' a Harley back then & life kinda took over. I went to the site last month for a new book but I remembered that usually they won't be out 'til March, correct? Wish I had a 2013copy. Hafta order a new one I guess after New Years.


When I went to the Maxton meet there were no tankers there,... I've reached out to the Old Crow guys & another fella from Texas that built a 302 Jimmy Lakester last year but haven't had much luck. Found this forum & hope to get some good info, though I wish it was in person & over some good BBQ.  grin

I appreciate the sound advice Sir, I definately have a lot of questions. Have collected a few articles on similar cars. Been working the general formulas on the Web & reading different threads on similar builds as I gather some measurements to plug into a 3D model on SolidWorks,... that will probably save me a bit of grindin' too.grin


Hey Frank by the Sea! cool
