How many fatalities has there been at Maxton?? I know of two MC riders killed there in the last three years. I have been going to The Texas mile for four years and no fatalities.

My response was about required safety equipment, there is no comparison on as far as what is required to run at the events. And I am not complaining about it, I appreciate the intent of the rules.  But I know full well 90% of the cars I have seen run at Texas would not pass tech to run 200+ at Maxton.

Fred and John, this topic was about Who is Ready for Maxton ?
Not about past accidents at any venue,,, let's not Plymouth on any LSR Venue PLEASE.  We all need to get along and promote LSR and each event.  Bonneville, El Mirage, Texas, Maxton, Loring,,, Miami (if they sanction), and events accross the big ponds as well,,, If I left any LSR venues out,, please add them to the list...

Not trying to police the forum,,, just keeping the peace !!!

Jon (aka  SSS),

I have done many build and understand the time and money Formula,,,, Heck we Built the Vicky from scratch in 7 months and came in only 4 weeks past the target completion date and a few Thousand bucks over budget.

I am very structured and detailed,,  But MAN did I screw up on the Difficulty, Time and Money needed for the Stude,,,
From the inception the goal for the Stude was to tech to run at least 225mph,,, it takes a lot more work to Tech to 225 than it did for the Vicky teching to 175...... everything has to be built bigger, better and stronger and lot's of stuff is custom or "one off".. heck have you every tried to order a full containment racing seat for a 6ft tall 375lb driver ??  It sure don't come off the shelf...or cheap...

I am not complaining,, it is a labor of love,,,some tell me that I am to picky, some say I should not pay so much attention to the fit, finish or overall appearance,, and some even say it's a waste of time and money to have a nice paint job..

But, If my name is on the car,,, it is going to look like a car show trophy winner, it's going to be safe and it's going to go FAST.... I am very cautious NOT to say it's going to get a record.. As I know the records are well earned and hard to get,,, all I can say is I am going to try.... But I want my cars to look fast sitting still...just in case they can't get out of there own way at the track.. :cheers:

Charles

Keith Turk once told me ... "to get over 200 mph in Land Speed Racing takes more horsepower than you think and more money than you have".

Steve,

Thanks for relaying Turk's quote,,, he is right on...

I have enough HP to go over 200 with my bigger motors,,,, But getting over 200 with a small NA "E" motor is the challenge,,,

The elusive 200 Club is even harder than going 200.... ya gotta get a record too !!!  That's the tuff part.

See ya in April....

Bike is in pieces still!  Won't be ready for the April run but I will take time to come down and meet everyone / learn the routine.  I wouldn't mind getting my bearings straight and learning the ropes before I lug down the ole BSA and make a fool of myself. 

I'm coming from Greensboro NC if anyone wants to car pool or meet up!

holdfastgreg,
I've go a Brit bike too and hold the fool record. That record will be harder to capture than a "2" club hat!
