Hello! I have been reading posts on here for a while, and decided I better sign up!

We are currently putting the finishing touches on our Land Speed racer for Maxton and Bonneville. Doesn't look like we will be done testing this one in time for B-Ville this year, so we will have to go without it ;-( We should have it ready for testing at Maxton in Sep and Oct.
