We met your daughter at the WOS a couple of years ago, she was security at night, she's a peach. Something about that oversized chicken that spooked here. You sure do a great job at the gate, I got to drive by you when leaving last August with a big smile (set a record and didn't break the engine this year.) See you at speedweek.

Mark    Thanks for the compliments. Good to know that our posts are being appreciated. Kinda makes the trip worthwhile. If you go to El Mirage look us up. Just look for the white mailboxes and come on in. I think beef stew will be the dinner choice for the month on Saturday night after the course walk. Whatever it is, you are welcome to join us.

Hello everyone...... My name is Drew Liggan. I'm 32 years old and have been going to the races at El Mirage since I was around 13 or so. I bought my first car when I was 15 years old and still own it to this day...........thats why I'm here......it's about time I get off my a$$ and do something. The car is a 55 studebaker that I've started and stopped working on too many times to say. Like any project.........got the time...no money......or vise versa. I look forward to talking to you and hope you guys don't mind me asking alot of questions.

  I've got a lot of questions to ask but I guess I'd better start here first. My name is Jim Hoogerhyde and I made my rookie run at Speedweek in 2007. I was riding a friends 350cc pushrod bike and it was enough to hook me bad. We went 103mph and it was enough to set a record. I was shocked that we set a record and now that trophy is the most coveted one on my shelf. I've been road racing and flat tracking for 15 years and just wrapped up a national championship with AHRMA in the Supermono class and am looking for a new challenge. I returned this year for the Bub event and ran my 600cc street bike just to bump my license up to a "C". We went 153mph this year and while that was great it just hooked me even worse and two days ago I ended up buying a 1000cc GSXR. I'm selling off all the street bits and building a dedicated Bonneville bike. I'm guessing I'll run it in MPS-G but I just have a personal goal of going 200mph.
   I guess that about covers it and I'll get cracking on all my dumb questions now. Thanks for providing this forum as I'm hoping it will save me at least a little bit of heartbreaking lessons over the next few years.

Heyya Guys and Girls,

Finally got around to signing up. I'm new to LSR but planning to pop my cherry in South Australia early next year. I'm in the middle of building a Turbo Busa that i will also use for the drags seeing as we only have one LS event here each year.

I've got a bit of a blog of the build going. http://www.hiboosta.com/

Cheers and look forward to chatting with you all.

Jim and Tyson, welcome to the forum, there are no dumb questions although you may get some dumb answers from some of us in the peanut gallery...  :-D

You both have picked tough classes and breaking any of the records in those classes will likely result in a 2 club hat from DRLA or Bonneville...  :wink:
Have fun and see ya on the salt  8-)

I am ziggy12345 and I run the website www.fast-rc.co.uk. We are a small bunch of RC car enthusiasts that have got together to try to set land speed records for remote controlled cars. We have formed and association called ROSSA (Remote Operated Scale Speed Association) and we organise championships for classes of RC cars.

This year we had 2 events, one in the UK at Shakespeare County Raceway, Long Marston and the other in the USA at Rockingham Dragway, North Carolina. Bother were well attended and we managed to set a new overall speed record for an RC car at 161.83mph. It was set by Nic Case of the USA.

We are already planning next years event and there are many cars being developed to break the existing record.

If anybody is interested in RC cars for speed records please visit the website. See you there!

ROSSA Chairman
