 :cheers: Hello! Doug Lynch here. Have played with cars most of my 50 years on this earth. Land Speed Racing has always held a special mystique for me. Have done some drag racing, drove a police car for a few decades (and never crashed one!). Now that I am retired from public service want to give it LSR a go. Thanks for allowing me to be a new member of this prestigious yet motley group.

typing next to Giants. will be standing next to giants this august. 1st time to the Flats. just bought a drop tank. been looking for years in my price range. . Oh by the Way Kevin Mc Cann from Venice California. been building cars for about 20 years. Been wanting to build a Lakester. its been on the list and slowly collecting parts. raced through tornado alley last May to get a 200$ 50' flat head from Kansas and back in 28 hours. Driving another 24 hours up to Oregon to pick up the drop tank from a P80 fighter. been doing research never enough research. I have had a fever for this and as soon as I step or get close to the salt i know its going to consume everything. 
been an adrenaline junkie for ever. love the big surf. love the downhill skiing, ... i don't know if im doing this right. ...story of my life. Tons of questions.... but will read as posted before the criteria of this.

anyway .... HI.

kevin.

Welcome Kevin... good plan to look at tanks before you build... talk to owners to see what they would do different, enjoy your quest.
See ya on the salt  :wink:

Yep! Talk to tank builders before you dive in there. Any old fool can build something then hang a body on it but it's a whole different animal when you're having to build a ship in an aluminum bottle. Tip of the day, If you want to go fast, don't build an oil rig on the top of it. :-D
