JEREMY here, giving some basic details on what I'm looking to do, and with what... I have a 1/3rd scale Yamaha R1 (known as an X7 Bullet) that I've gutted and custom-installed a Yamaha KT100S kart racing engine into. This engine pushing a 400lb load has easily broke 120 mph on the kart. Now that it is only pushing a 300lb load I'm hoping to run her out to 150 or better if she holds together! I do not know how the 'classes' are designated and need to find out what all of this is about so that I can see if I qualify to make a pass and get into the books. I truly believe I own "the world's fastest weedeater"!!! This bike is the only fully plated 50-state legal and insured mini pocket rocket in Indiana at this time, and I've rode her for 2 years with the stocker (50cc) until I decided that "Stock isn't good enough!" and bought me the KT100S  that's dynoed out at over 17.5hp @ 15,200rpm compared to 5.2hp stock. As you guys can understand, these are SERIOUS numbers and providing I can get it into the proper class I'd love nothing greater than to count myself in the ranks of the fastest in the world! I have done all of the reengineering and modifications myself to make this possible, and she's VERY close to being finished with the new engine install and I'm eager as hell to get her out and run!!! So, I'm seeking knowledgable input to help/teach me just 'what' I now have, and what I'll need to do to make my run a reality.

It's not what we do - it's HOW we do it, and we like it FAST! 1/3rd scale R1 running a KT100S  and looking to earn a place in the record. 🏁

Jeremy
You are going to need a rulebook... I don't think the pocket is legal for SCTA bike classes due to wheel size
Your best chance may be the Bub... look at their rules online
Good luck with your quest, if you just want a timeslip and bragging rights... actually what we all race for... RWB at Bub or 130 Club at WoS are the best bets

Hi, my name is Mike and I'm addicted. I had my first taste of it in 2011 after my friend claimed it was the greatest thing on earth. It took me 12 hours to get that first taste but after that first hit, I was done for and I've been hooked ever since. Now my year is now filled with Bonneville salt and the dirt of El Mirage.

Grew up in SoCal ( Santa Monica ) and still live there ( Saugus ) with my wife and dogs. 

Recently I've decided that my addiction needs to be satisfied in another way so I've decided to become more involved with the SCTA in particular Dan Warners group. I'm not sure if it's for me or if I'll fit in but I've decided to give it a whirl and see what I can contribute.
Cheers

Hi Mike and welcome,

Since you are new and joining the WGB, you might be interested in my part ownership of a Bike that is part owned by two other people from the WGB. For $500 you can be a 25% owner and the WGB would have a 75% interest in the bike, and I can put the money in my roadster. You won't find a cheaper deal than this. Here is a link to my ad. http://www.landracing.com/forum/index.php/topic,13508.0.html

Good luck whatever route you decide to take.

Asking questions is one's only way of getting answers. As a young boy I was always taught that there is no such thing as a stupid question. It suggests that the quest for knowledge includes failure, and that just because one person may know less than others they should not be afraid to ask rather than pretend they already know. In many cases multiple people may not know but are too afraid to ask the "stupid question"; the one who asks the question may in fact be doing a service to those around them.

Hello All,

My name is Brian Axup, I oversee the specialty engine builds at Esslinger Engineering.  Our forte is 4 cylinder engines based on the Ford 2300 and Duratec families.  We have a few good customers that run in SCTA events, typically in the F engine classifications.  If there anyone is looking for some info or answers on engines in these families, feel free to message me or send an e-mail directly to me at brian at esslingeracing dot com

Welcome Brian! Didn't Circle Track Magazine do an article (and cover photo) of one of your engines not too long ago?
I'll be sending you some questions, since I'm building my first-ever performance four-cylinder- yes, an 'F' engine, but not Ford.

Thanx for the offer but I'm not joing WGB except for a cocktail at the end of the day! When I stated that I'd be joining Dan Warner's group it was as an SCTA volunteer not as an official member of WGB. I know that group at WGB but only as a known associate not an official member.

Cheers

Thanks for the kind words Rick.  You're a pretty cool cat yourself!  I'm pretty sure I'd have a permenant skidmark in my driving suit after your 2014 Speedweek...  And you seem to have pretty much taken it in stride!

I talked to a gentleman about a 2L n/a Lakester engine yesterday and then after getting off the phone it dawned on me that we could put a 4-valve head on one of our blocks with a destroked crank...  It would allow for a larger bore, better breathing head, and still come in under 122cu.in...  I guess we'll see if the gentleman calls back, it would be a really fun project with lots of potential!

Welcome! I read that an Esslinger powered car won the Chili Bowl this year? How many have you won before?

Hi:tock My name is Mike Feldner and I own a company called MF Performance.  We are located in northern Wi. and have been in the drive line business for over 40 years.  Some of you might have seen our add in the Bonnivlle Racing news and I would like to take a little time and tell you a little about us.  I started out working on our family race team and was tapped to do the drive line work when needed.  In the early 70's I found a lot of people needed my help and started a business company called MFR Enterprises Inc.  We did mostly stock car work with some road racing and drag racing.  I managed to have a lot of good people working with and for me  over the years and grew to a point where we had over 450 people world wide.  In the 80's we where doing a lot of specialized work for teams and had a lot of new products .  We where building special qualifying transmissions and gears for NASCAR teams , this would help[ me with LSR teams down the road.  I found that a lot of things that worked at Daytona would help at Bonneville and then a lot would not.  I can tell you that all of the things I do have been tested both in the shop and on the track, I can also tell you that I do not know it all but have a lot of people that I can go to when needed. In 2004 I made my first trip to the salt and like most got the salt fever.  I had a great time and met some really neat people , needless to say I learned lot about LSR.  Also that year I sold MFR and moved form the Milwaukee area to the Hayward WI area and down sized , starting MF performance.  My main interest is R&D work, along with LSR.  I was asked in 2006 if different Ford 9" gears could be made by a LSR team,  and to make a long story short I got it done with the 2:30 gears.  I will post more about this later on and complete the story.  One thing for sure is that I will work with anyone and within their budget. When people call I will call back and answer questions to the best of my ability.  I can be reached at (715) 462-3817, (715) 558-2421 or e-mail at MFPerformance@centurytel.net Thanks for the time  Mike

MRK,

We have been lucky enough to have some good guys running our stuff.  The past 7 Chili Bowl Nationals have been won by drivers with our engines.  Damion Gardner in 2008, Sammy Swindell in 2009, Kevin Swindell 2010-2013, & Bryan Clauson in 2014.  We've had all 4 styles of our Midget engine now, XT, TST, EST, & RSI...

Wow, very impressive record at the CB! Any experience with the Pontiac Super Duty 4?? My ol'buddy Dick Martin runs one in an F/GT Fiero. He may need you if you do!

Cheers!

The best thing to do if you have questions is drop me an e-mail to brian (at) esslingeracing (dot) com .  I do have a little experience with the Super Duty/ 801 head stuff...
