Well... lets kick this baby off!
First off, anything mild to wild welcome.
Remember for the Bonneville side, you want to go as fast as possible... smooth and powerful is the name of the game here. Also, this is highly open to interpretation, if you have a semi with 4 Cat engines... I am sure there is a class, if you have a motorbike powered by raw eggs, there will be a class for that also! Also, remember safety is paramount... SCTA officals check everything!
As far as the Pikes Peak side, this is a wild, hopefully sub-12 minute, dash up Pikes Peak in Colorado. The terrain varies widely, the start is on pavement, transitions to dirt and back and forth the whole way up... if you want inspiration look up the Pikes Peak Suzuki XL-7 on Google. Same thing with safety here.
Lets say that the project has to be less than 25% complete or a rebuild.
Oh yes, the classes
Bonneville – Anything raced at Bonneville... remember that nearly anything flies!
Pikes Peak – anything that can be raced up the mountain... Rhys Millen has raced up the mountain in a Pontiac Solstice... very close to the same car that he drifts in, so that is also open to interpretation.
Either PM me here or send me an email with a. your real name b. username c. the model and scale and finally d. the classification to remingtonbox at yahoo dot com.
Oh yes, one rule: HAVE A BLAST BUILDING YOUR CONTRAPTIONS!
If anyone has anything to add, suggestions, comments... be my guest.
I also like Jarius' idea of a photo contest... Lets say 3 photos for the final submission, at least one has to be in the vehicles natural habitat (Photoshop, diorama, whatever) I will find something to throw in as a prize. Sound good?
Post renderings, pictures, ideas, trash talk, bench race, imagineer...
Like I said, above all, HAVE FUN!
