Re: theTRUTH

Ha ha, the back wheel. Russell, yes saw Dennis Mannings the first time it was here. Brite shiny streamliner with these add on skids in bare metal hanging out the side. Obviously last minute. You need them to park.

Re: theTRUTH

I love it, a bike with the right number of cylinders. The best of both worlds. Towing it from pits and post run.There is pressure from some in the club (and for some good reasons) that might make this mandatory in the future so might be a good move. We go there to race, not drive to and from the pit...

Re: Two way runs for 2019

Why not maintain "one way records" as a local track record and create "Australian records" as 2 way runs.

A lot of us have invested a lot of our lives to achieve the records that we own. To have these suddenly discounted or shelved would be unjust and unfair.

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.

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

Might feel natural coming from a recumbent bike. Many of the 3 wheeled versions steer a bit like that. Are planning on this March for this?

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 ...
