SCREAM!! <Shift> BIGGER SCREAM!!!!

« on: May 12, 2008, 05:44:00 PM »

Hello everyone,

This is my first season running landspeed, and I am trying to adjust from road racing to SCTA. I have a full suit, but it has perforations and strech panels. Now, I have ordered an SCTA-legal suit, but it won't arrive in time for this weekend. cry

Does anybody know where I can rent an SCTA-legal suit in So. Cal, or does anybody have a spare so I can pass my licensing runs?

Looking forward to seeing you all out there.

Thanks,
Dave

First question:  bikes or cars?  I'm going to guess bikes because of your concern about the stretch panels, but I'm not positive.  There are many vendors that make SCTA-acceptable leathers.  Nancy and I got ours at Z Custom Leathers in Huntington Beach, CA.  The price is the same as a good set of Dainese or Vanson or other good outfits -- and the fit can be as good or even much better.  Let's see what the others say.  Good luck in the dirt.

Man! I just sold my suit I wore last year........I would of let you borrow it.

It might help if you put up your size and weight.

Check ebay and craiglist there are always good deals on there.

Good luck,

Yeah, I'm running a bike - stock hayabusa, and I mean STOCK, all the way to the paper air filter.

I'm 6'0" about 185lbs last time I weighed in.

Thanks! All I am shooting for this weekend to get oriented and get my license. So if I can pass tech with it, that's all that matters.

Make sure your bike is saftey wired, aftermarket kill switch, metal valve stems and covers, proper thickness and length chainguard,, remove the mirrors and tape accross the headlight and blinkers, remove the rear foot pegs, must have a motorcycle state issued license, helmet must be Snell 2000 (or greater)

If you need help with either a kill switch or a chain guard I have them in stock and will bring them with me either way, if you need any help come over to the Moreland/Noonan pits 40' long White/Maroon bus and a 36' 5th wheel with a White Duramax Towing it..as long as you are not a rear finder / gear grinder (just kidding) you are welcome to pit with us.  Even that fast Canuck is welcome to pit with us.. grin

See you there and good luck!

I'll have one for sale at the motorcycle inspection trailer. I'm 6' & about 205 & it's too tight on me. I just picked up my new one from Z Leather, so I'll sell this one for $150.

Thanks again Willie. I will check out the set that Matt has for sale first just in case.

$150 is a whole lot cheaper than what I paid for the suit I ordered. I'll check it out.

Still working on the safety wire (broken drill bit), but other than that, the bike is ready to go with special thanks to V8Pinto for the battery tie down idea.
That'll be great, I'll have to stop by and chat. I'm so new to this form of racing, that I would definately appreciate hearing some tips and war stories from experienced racers.
I'll be rolling in the U-Haul special with my wife driving the Honda Civic "Support" vehicle.  grin
