 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!

Pete

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.
