Re: how much

Hawkwind- I apologise in advance for the "highjack" but think what follows is sort of relevant in relation to "bang for your buck I am a lone wolf- the fab., welding, design, engine build, paint etc is all being done by yours truly, as I suspect is the case with most land racers. It is a passion- I ...

Re: how much

Don't forget the safety gear. Good helmet, fire suit, hans, belts, fire bottles, plus 200mph plus tyres and approved rims. I refuse to add up what i've spent so far on my vette, but it would be North of $30k, (without the initial cost of a "damaged" corvette from US) I have most of the engine compon...

Re: Landracing tyre cost

Thanks Greg- I took the plunge recently and had 15" steel wheels made, because 15" seemed to be the most common, so I assumed more available, and (ha ha!) less expensive! Denis

Landracing tyre cost

I plan to run G/Year LSR tyres, rated to 300 mph. G/Y is about to manufacture a new batch (per Landracing.com) I have just been quoted "ballpark figure" of $850.00 each, by North Terrace Tyres. The tyre is# 2284 25.0x4.5-15 Does this seem "right?" Has anyone brought in L/R tyres from USA- I guess yo...

No worries, it seemed like a good idea at the time, after proba...

Re: DLRA General Meeting and Information Day

Greg- I know this is a big ask, but is there any possibility of the Gen. Meeting being recorded, and then made available for members to download from the website. I realise this would add to your workload but as a sign of good faith, I am prepared to put $50.00 in the pot, towards the cost of necess...
