lets all hope for some great weather and racing.
Hey Jeff, arrive early so you can help your fellow "Milers" set up the tower side cones!
I will sure try Willi
See you all there!
LOL well it definitely wasn't me coming in that kicked you out and the 10 member limit is long gone. I didn't come into the club until '97 and in '84 I would have been 3 years old so it definitely wasn't me.
Jeff, welcome to the club. I'll be a little easier on you now that I know you're a Miler. Is Emily coming out?
I will be there as I have Sat. afternoon patrol. My sidecar tire was rated to 130. At the Oct. meet I managed to run 130.224. Whether I will be allowed to run in Nov. is now being debated and I'm waiting to hear. One way or the other I'll be there.
SSSSSOOOOOO? get some higher rated tires??? And if you need someone to ride/drive that thing.................. dont ask me
Therein lies the rub Lance. Its a "for racing purposes only" tire but its from kart. No speed rating per se but it a spec tire for a 125 shifter class. Min. weight for class is 360 lbs. But it only carries 49 lbs. on the sidecar. But with no speed rating the tech guys are in a bind. Hopefully will get a decision before the Nov. event. You don't want to ride it?? I thought you were a big hairy chested biker!!
What size tire you runnin'?
4.5-10 X 5 kart tire. But the world won't end if the SCTA say no. Plan B is already rattling around my head.
nope I manscape. And yes, you have some balls to ride that thing. See you next week.
plan B, run one of my motors and see what it feels like to go 60mph
60 mph? Austin cranked off 87.418 mph. Its that engine or nothing! Congrats Austin!! (nice tuck)
LAST CHANCE TO SEE LAND SPEED RACING IN 2012!! NOV 10-11
Yes, I think they got us as a matched-set.
I will be there for sure. 4 cracks at the record, I ran a 131,8 on a 134 recored, oh so close yet sssssooooo far.
TMAN's coming?? Make sure you come by so we can meet in person for the first time.
I have the rear end changed out and the truck is in fine tune. Also got the F-350's problems all sorted out (for now anyway) We'll be out there Friday night. Pray for dry weather.
Car 701 will be there. All washed up and ready to put in the box Thursday night.
Looks like it's going to be a nice weekend, bit chilly though.....
No, not this year but I will be joining Tim in the Rod Riders. Hoping to get to Elmo at some time. We have cheap flights to Vegas, gets me most of the way!
Im ready to roll in the morning, hopefully this weather cooperates.
See you guys there!!
See you out there! I'm coming in late, maybe around 10:00 pm still have to work most of the day. I'll tech first thing in the morning. line # is 78.

WHAT A GREAT WEEKEND! Our bike sucked, nothing to impressive. Got to see alot of old friends and met some new ones. For us spoiled California boys 70 degrees is cold and long pants weather. It was in the 20's-40's all weekend, ouch. kaui got a record in the BREW 102 car, congrats. See you guys in May!
One thing I noticed was not many people were compensating for the dense air. We were at 4000 + feet but the air density was at 1900. Needed a lot more fuel for the air. Our guys set a few records. SDRC!!
I better start buying lottery tickets then to finish the car AND afford towing 1300+ miles one way!
Here's the one from my truck.
