Re: Lake Condition for March 2015

Good points Dave. I looked over my records from a few years back when we ran the old wired timing system and the best average over the whole week was 12 minutes per run.

Re: Rule Clarification-Requirement clarification request?

From my P.O.V., I have designed and built my land speed racer that will require a lot of tuning and pre-running procedures that entail my personal presence outside of the driver's seat of the vehicle whilst in the pits and at the starting area of any DLRA controlled event.

Hopefully the front suspension arms will be ready to pick up from the laser cutters this coming week and I can then put the project on 4 wh...
