Gee, I'm kind of stumped on how to tell you to let the SCTA know about their website not working easily for a new guy.  In the rulebook - which book you can't get - there are email addresses and other contact information for many SCTA officials.  Only a few SCTA board members participate here, but maybe one (or more?) will see your note and try to get in touch with you to find out what troubles you have.  Remember -- SCTA is a volunteer organisation of racers, and maybe the website gets short shrift compared to bikes and cars.  Maybe not -- I know that Ed Saffrick (sp?) was taking care of it, but I think he's retired from that job.  He was pretty good, for sure.

Anyway, thanks for posting and for joining the Forum.  Ask questions all you want to, and don't despair - you'll get a rulebook soon.  If you really can't find one (the USFRA is a good source if SCTA is out of 'em) I expect that at least one or two of us will have a spare book to send you.  It'll be slightly out of date really soon, but it can help a bit for now.  Let us know.

Back to Christmas dessert. grin grin

Hi ALL,   My Name is Jim, Been into cars, trucks Jeeps and about anything with a engines since i could walk. I was saving a 88 Thunderbird for my nephew but he had other plans when he turned 16. SO,... I now have a stationary lawn ornament and i got to day dreaming about this old car and wondering about this Non drag,non oval, non road racing type of racing.
 So here i am to learn what can be done with limited funds and some time.

 Ok after an hour of trying to get on this site I'm in, where is my medal?

  Anyway, Hello I'm  Dick Spadaro,  I sell antique Ford restoration and hot rod parts outside Albany, NY. I also toy with fast circle track cars. Keeping up with news and trends requires me to monitor other web sites for speed secrets being discussed so I thought I'd see what you inline boys and girls were up to.  During the warm season I drive a 32 Cpe with a warmed up flatmotor.

Jim, the new rule SCTA books are a work in progress, apparently getting close to completion. As soon as they're available I'd get one and expand your planning. In the meantime you might look at running in the 130 mph club with USFRA. They run to SCTA rules plus a few other classes. It would get you a chance to learn a lot more about salt racing and have a little fun at the same time. That would allow you to get a little experience in a street legal car while you figure out what you really want to do.

Good luck!

I don't understand. I just went to the SCTA web page, www.scta-bni.org, and look in the store. Each item I clicked on came up and placed in my cart. A 2013 Rule Book was one such item.

That's what I get for not checking myself and just a$$-u-me ing that things were in their normal depleted state at this time of the year. I imagine that with a lot of days being rained out there weren't as many rule books sold as usual.

Hello all, my name is James and as for the pickle part don't ask its a very old nick name. Anyway I am entirely new to this type of racing although I have much experience in others. I have been looking around on this site for some time and have decided to finally come out from the wood work.

Some background on me for those interested... I am a physicist, graduated from UCLA, currently working on a doctorate in aerospace engineering. I build rockets, race cars, and anything else that can get up and move. I've built mainly drag and road course cars and many classic restorations. I just finished a project and have chosen to give LSR a go for my next.

My buddies and I have located a belly tank and plan to build for XO/GL. I have been looking for a while now at the build diaries and needles to say I am quite impressed by the work of many on this site. One thing that has drawn me to this site, and LSR in general, is the overwhelming sense of camaraderie displayed throughout. As I said I have been involved in racing for a couple decades and I have never seen this type of sportsmanship. I am entirely aware of the learning curve involved in this sport and hope to learn much from you good folks. I am located in the south bay of Los Angeles (Redondo Beach) and was wondering if there was a group of racers here or perhaps a club so I may meet some of you in person and begin the learning process.

Cheers!
James

Hi James

The best tank build I have ever seen is Andy Welker's, if you follow what he did you will have a first class race car as he is a very crafty guy

You can see where he gave everything a lot of thought

He has a web page too

Welcome and have a good time building your racer, and let us know what you are up too

Buy a rule book, then notice that SoCal is littered with SCTA clubs.... all interested, well maybe mostly interested in going fast. 
Have fun

Pickle, welcome to Landracing .com. The The Gear Grinder club is close  to you and one of the oldest clubs in that area. They meet the 1st. Thursday of each month at Pop Warners golf club in Anahiem.
There are several lakes racers in the south bay and others. It's a great  club. If interested contact me and I will get you some info.
