FeRd, did you decide you could take paypal gifts for your little soiree?  Or am I going to have to go find my checkbook.

Hello Everyone,

My name is Jason.  I have been interested in LSR for many years and it is a HUGE goal of mine to get to it this year.  I have always been interested in anything with motors, wheels, and computers!  I am most interested right now in racing everything 500cc and under class.  I often wonder how some modified Harbor Freight motors could do in LSR.  There are a lot of mini bikes around here using them and I have found some interesting things. 
I have procrastinated doing the things that I love and instead got caught up paying bills and living a limited life.  So last year when I was laid off I cashed everything in and I am trying to get my own business "SillyFast" off the ground.  I figure I am 38 now so I have plenty of time to start doing the things that I enjoy. 
I look forward to hearing from everyone and hopefully soon I will get to start a build thread of my own really soon!

SillyF... welcome to the site
Do a little searching, I believe Briggs based motors have been discussed, maybe in the Bub section.  I would get a ruling for the sanctioning body you plan to run on using one.  I know the Jr Dragsters are making wild HP on look alike engines.

SillyFast, be sure to get down to Wilmington, Ohio to an ECTA event this year. We've had some serious competition in the 100 cc''s (I think one "2" club member stole his boy's MX bike) up to the 250 cc's. I've seen atleast one 50 cc with a bottle. There  are also a couple of Kohler brothers who might have a comment about their namesake engines.

So project is a srt10 ram reg cab

Sounds like fun Ken, and a handful!  :-o :-o :-o

Why don't you fill in your location before SSS decides to do it for you and you find yourself located in some unusual spot. The location often helps when it comes to having someone knowledgable close at hand to give advise or even a helping hand.

Ken, Peter Jack is correct.  Unless you put in something I think I'll move you to - oh, how about Levitated Labia, Louisiana?  Would that do?

Now it's a race to see who fills in the location, isn't it? :evil:

Hello all.  My name is Greg (my old custom motorcycle company was called chopsmitty).  We moved to the Big Island a year and a half ago from Michigan (SW).  I've been into cars and bikes my whole life and have decided to try my hand at LSR.  I have a '32 Ford body and frame and am thinking of building something to compete in the D/BSTR class. 

I'm here, first, to find a rule book and then to be an active part of the community during my build.

 :cheers:

Welcome to the addiction Greg, the drive to Bonneville would have been a lot shorter from MI...  :roll: 

Rulebooks... SCTA website... Street Roadster is probably one of the toughest classes... of course you only have to go about 230 in that class for a record, so that is the speed you have to build to.
Good luck with your quest, we look forward to your build diary, I'm sure Stan Back will coach you on how to keep from being protested  :-D

Getting a rule book on the SCTA website is like banging your head against a wall...  I've just sent a contact email. 

I want my project to be a street driven car 99% of the time...  Bolt in cage, install chute and make trip to Wendover.  Similar to Frank Curries car (always loved that thing).
Anybody have a project log on something similar?

 :cheers:
