L/GL class?
« on: May 21, 2010, 12:08:32 PM »
Just wondering, looked thru the records on ecta-lsr.com and didn't see a record for L/ Gas Lakester (.25L and under), but I have seen records for K/ Fuel Lakester (Zainfield and Warren), K/ Blown Gas Lakester (Bogus Salt Racing), and for K/ Gas Lakester (Eastern Cycle Performance). Is there not a class for this small of a displacement Lakester, or has no one built one yet?

K is the smallest engine class. A rule book is really handy when you start to look at approaches you might like to take entering lsr. There are lots of options.

ECTA has a L Engine class 15.99 CID 0.259L and under, you need a ECTA Rulebook. Nobody has put a weed whacker motor in a lakester yet, open record, at Maxton only of course.

I stand corrected...looks like a Maytag washing machine motor was used. :-D

Sorry, I didn't look to see that it was in the ECTA section. :|

Have fun with a small  engine. There are some beauties available. :evil:
