    MiamizFinest. I have sent you a PM about organising the east coast event. Let me know what you think.

    Basically I am looking for somebody to help organise the event. I agree with you that there will probably be more interest in the east coast event. If they are on different weekends people could go to both!!

    maybe someone should step up and charter a R/C landspeed record organization and have rotating events or multiple events evach year. This way the classes get better defined. The event planning better and maybe even some better coverage of the event. RCCA only looks after one thing, subscription sales. They know all they need is 2~3 cars to shoot the moon with 100+ speeds and they can take some photos and sell a story.

    I mentioned the need for this two years ago, this year I decided just to build the car and go for broke. I may even show up with some RCDriver and XrC stickers all over the car.

    This is what I'm trying to do. I have tried to ensure the rules for the USA event and the UK event are the same and that the results are pooled from all events but I'm having real trouble getting anybody to even answer their emails. At least Me and Nic agree (well nearly!) so we have a start

    Well just to throw some ideas around i thought id post a few things here is a link to a list of HOTELS in the area of MIA airport there are some basicaly across the street at good prices check out the link

    http://www.orbitz.com/App/ViewHotelS...e=interstitial


    also in the early post i took a wild guess on how far the drag strip is from the airport my guess was 20 miles turns out i almost hit the nail on the head its actually 19 point miles away here are directions to show how easy it would be to get there


    lastly here is a idea how big the strip actually is here is a pic useing GOOGLE earth from about 3500 feet above the ground this is ofcourse before the whole drag strip was set up since google earth is delayed by about a year

    Another guy on this forum is also arranging a speed meeting is South Cal somewhere in April. I'll let him post the info but it will be on a closed road about a mile long.

    Nic and Brian. A chance to do some testing!

    Cheers

    Don't you belong to a club? If you have that much local interest they should be willing to front the money for expenses if there's any chance of getting it back. The other requirement would be insurance but your club should also be able to provide that through ROAR or other organizations.

    Hi

    I just spoke to Shawn Palmer of Schumacher USA and he says he has been busy for the last 2-3 months so hasn't had a chance to organise anything yet. He is looking for a location within 2 hrs drive of Tampa and if anybody knows a suitable place please post it here and I will pass on the info.

    As soon as he gets a suitable place its pretty automatic that the event will go ahead. Shawn suggested that October-November is the best time for that area so he will have an advantage as he will know what the records are from the other 2 events.

    He also said he has done a few mods to a standard Fusion 28 and has clocked right at 100 mph!!!
