Well, let's see (about loading photos, that is).  Did you click first of all on "additional options"?  That takes you to the neighborhood where you go to load photos.  BUT -- you're limited to 500kb/4 images (totalling 500k), so don't try putting those high quality super panoramic shots of your shop on the Forum - that way.  Lots of folks use a photo sharing site, like Photobucket or Flickr.  In those cases you put the photos, any size you dang well want, on that site and just link the photo to the text blank of the post (the part I'm typing in right now, that is).

If you're not sure you can bring it off after you've tried a few times -- unh, shoot the photos t me and I'll post 'em if you'd like, or ask and I'll send you my very imposing and at-a-glance technical set of instructions on how to put photos on this Forum.

Either way -- good luck.  We'd like to see the pitchers.

Here are a few 1:1 Cardboard tracings just to try & get a feel before hacking & also to scribble on. The Kitchen & Living Room are now Drafting surfaces.

Sean, I have an extra copy of the 2013 SCTA rule book. PM me your mailing address and I'll send it to you.  :-D
If you build to the SCTA rules, you'll be pretty much covered for all the other organizations.  :cheers:

You need to start a thread in the Build Diary section of this Forum and be sure to include all your pictures there.

Rule book is SouthWest bound with the hammer down!  :-)  :-D  :cheers:



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.


Driver's meetings are WAY cool and you can REALLY learn a lot. I always attended them at Maxton and continue to do so at Wilmington as well, even though I'm not running anything yet. If you can, try to get up to Wilmington.....Night and Day difference compared to Maxton. Beautiful facility and nice town to boot!

Here are some links to my Photobucket of all meets I went to this year

As for my truck, no 2.2 but a Neon SRT4 Turbo engine swap.

Hi Sean

Have you seen the build log on Andy Welker's flathead Tank, you need to study his very nice fab work

Does not get any better than what he did , also you might think about putting a flat bottom in to lower it for better C/G and Aero stuff along with setting inside by not having all the drag from your helmet & cage

Looking forward to seeing your Tank come to life

Hello everyone!

My name is Scottie.  I've been Hot Rodding since I've had my license and building/restoring classic cars for almost 10 years.  Last year I picked up a 1958 Royal Enfield built Indian Trailblazer.  I fell in love with the bike and insisted on getting another to do a performance build on.

I now have a '59 Enfield/Indian Chief that I am building forBonneville.  I'm doing a full performance build that will have a 13.5:1 static compression ratio that I will be running on methanol.  I'm also going to be custom fabricating a full fairing for a semi-streamlined body.  I will post some pics when I get home tonight.

Hi G Don,

Just started a build diary with a few initial pics!  :-)
Oh, and my previous post here was supposed to say 13.5:1 DYNAMIC compression ratio.  The static ratio will be somewhere around 16:1.

Hello all.

Been lurking for a while now... figured id get on and get cereal. Im very much into things that look good, sound good, or go fast. Ive done various forms of weekend racing, survived 100+ mph motorcycle get off, and generally just like being around like minded people.  Build all sorts of custom projects mostly composite and upholstery based by day, help buddies out on their projects and tinker on my stuff by night.

Havent been to the salt just yet(i know, terrible huh!), but have helped with a number of salt racing projects past few years with local lsr guys. Just chompin at the bit to put a ride together and join in on the fun.
 :cheers:

josh

Welcome Josh :-)

I run a Triumph T20 at BUB and am now building a Honda CB750 for 2014.  What's your pleasure?  Those long winters in Minnesota can be very productive if you start NOW :lol:
