Re: Target 550 for 2018

Experience at our special place teaches patience. Run hard and run safe. All the best to the Target 550 team. Sounds like our Lake is as good as she gets so make the most of it.

Re: World Speed Trials Australia

Sorry Paul, that record would need to be FIA certified. This meet is FIM motorcycles only. :)

That equates to 2/5ths of F/All or .0625 of F/All for the younger members.

Re: Another V8 bike

You seem to have the right plan. The salt is not a place that hands out success easily and much more so demands patients. You can have all your ducks in a row only to turn up and mother nature says well come back next year. A truly testing place in many ways. Stick with the plan.

Re: Caster

I'm running a VT Commo front end in our F100 which is layed back in the frame for additional caster. From memory I think it was 12 or 13 degrees. It goes dead straight with good feel at 185mph. You can let go the wheel. In a factory sedan my advice is as much caster as you can build in which is what...

Re: FEET FORWARD AG1350

Re: FEET FORWARD AG1350

That seating position is comfortable in a car. Are the bars under for simplicity? It would feel much more natural above. That just looks like it will take some getting used to.

Re: Car Entrants

Quick access hatches at critical points for fire extinguishers in a fire/rescue. Special construction engine bays are often hard to access from a fire/rescue standpoint. I think this was a recent update to our rulebook. Haddie's fire was an example of that where the fire/rescue had problems getting ...

Re: Gas Turbine streamliner

Can see its early days but my question came from seeing your front hoop not going through to the bottom rail. I think this is a requirement.

Re: Gas Turbine streamliner

That is all looking good. From a scrutineering standpoint please read the rulebook thoroughly regards cage tube material and basic structure. At this stage of the build it is easy to fix any minor issues. Any questions or queries contact one of the scruitineering crew. We will all be happy to help.
