Default Re: land speed record

hahahaha.. its funny that most folks sit and think they are going fast on a mb.. and start to dream about the speed record.. i have a french buddy that has spent the last 5 years building engines for the 50cc mod moped class (real high end stuff!! no china crap!!) and he has not been able to get it yet.. its at like 87mph and he is hitting 83 or so.
what some folks dont realize is the heat and 3000+ elavation is what keeps folks from breaking the records.. a bike that is tuned for diifrnt elavations and then is taken their to race wont do well.. the saly is bumpy and rough also... and you may only have this year to get it as they are trying to preserve the salt and may not run the race any more!! hurry and get you some!
