Default Re: land speed record

If the idea is to stay at 50cc then look for the highest HP 50cc motor you can find. Peddling up to speed before engaging the motor is a good idea if going with high gears. The fairing is going to add a lot of weight but will probably be mandatory.

I think a good high quality set of tires will work but the tubes might be a weak link.

How is the search for regs coming along?
