Default 2nd Annual Carolina Speed Rally

We will be holding the second annual Carolina Speed Rally again this year on June 27.
If you are a guy/girl who likes flying fast model airplanes this is the event you don't want to miss. We run two passes in each direction past a Stalker Pro radar gun and issue a "certificate of speed" recording all four passes and an average of the two fastest in each direction.
Propjets, Pylon Racers, Hotliners, you are all welcome here.
NO Rules to restrict motors, engines, wing loading, etc. Just bring your fast stuff and wring it out for everyone to see.

Speaking of no rules, not to sound stupid and redundant and all that, just checking... are open exhaust vintage racing/FF .15's spinning toothpicks okay, that sort of thing? Like, say, grafted into hastily-built-but-of-course-sound SWR deltas or the like? What about a pulsejet if by some miracle I could pull it off? (no, really). Is that sort of sillyness encouraged and rewarded with hoots and hollers? If so sounds like a camping and flying party to me, Revver Bro's, and I ain't in my life sad to admit done that once yet at a model event. How big is the field, can you land a light plane there? Don't jump ahead, just wanted to know, it's good to know these things so you can dream about the impossible, the ultimate road/air trip. You dig? Summer is a comin' in,..

One more bowl of frosted flakes and a short airplane vid then bedtime.

Cheers,

MJD

Only if it flies with the wheels off the ground. Alternatively, you can bring it if you leave the keys in it and tape on a sign that says "emergency beer getting car".

The 4.6s' are awesome! They look like a pair of 2300s' joined at the hip.
Funny how Ford took a back seat to Chevy for so many years [let's not talk about racer only options that nobody ever saw in real life] and finally drove enough nails home to shut down the Camaro / Firebird.

Notice that GM didn't advertise the Camaro or Firebird, it's like they wanted to kill the F body.

Hey, I wish I could come, but it's a bit too far to N.Carolina for me. My son was a trucker and he loved the area.

I've worked in Charleston a couple of times and loved the food and hospitality. I'll bet NC is no different.
FF, you can always just ship Vic one of your planes and he'll send you back a certificate.

C4F, I've been out on Road Atlanta when those guys were taking alternate runs. Very cool cars. My dad was a boring mill operator at SVO (what SVT used to be called) when they were developing that engine. They put one in a Mk to use for testing around town. The engineer told me they could easily pull 100 hp per liter naturally aspirated. The problem was that they couldn't work out the accesories.

Send that plane out here we'll even try to get a vid for you FF. FWIW I've been to your side of the field to fly with the revvers at Rabbit more than once.
I've been trying to get CP out here for years. I guess when I see a jeep full of little airplanes show up in my drive I'll know what to do[8D]

I've got a plane that could be flown "by Proxy" if anyone is MAN ENOUGH [X(]. If you can bench 300, you might be able to hold it for a launch.

Fooey.. no sweat. [sm=sleeping.gif]*

Hey, at least with me you know I'd never dare try to run home across the border with it.. "Sir, what is THAT!?? Step out of the car NOW with your hands visible at all times. Slowly sir, easy..".

But I could fire it over the Falls it with controls locked, a bladderful of Vicman's best homebrew and a belly loaded with contraband and hope for the best on the other side. After all, you think a kid's gonna run up and touch it?

We could have a sideshow he-man challenge in NC - $5 a pop. Step right up, step right up and hand-prop the 1/2A from the bowels of hell.. and win.. what I wonder? I guess a gift certificate for the local emergency ward would be a start. And a fifth of the best nerve tonic they got down there.

MJD



* Yeah, right...!

ATF dismantled my guy's equipment in such a way that he won't be making any for a while.[&:]

Chuck,
Send it on. One of us will give it a go. Are you really interested in what I bench?
MJD, I think RCP would be interested in the substance on your hands regardless of where they have been. [X(]

Dave, the K&B 6.5 ate a lock washer that was loose in the engine bay and never did make it onto the speed plane. The Nelson doesn't fit, so the plane just sits.[&o]
For a quick fix I put the Nelson on a delta and it moves out pretty good. The FAI engine isn't as tough to run as I've read,, it needs to be choked in stages to get up to launch RPM.........the problem is wasting valuable time and fuel to get it ready to launch. It goes through 3 stages on the pipe and I launch it at about 29,000.
I want to change the fuel line pinch into a "flood off" by using one of those BVM servo controlled NVAs.
The biggest problem is to locate exhaust port/pipe seals that don't blow out every other flight.....this is the biggest obstacle to consistency.

Wayne,
You would not be the lone Revver Bro at the rally. There were several of us right coasters on hand last year but you would be the first lefty on hand for sure. You would also be recieved as Revver royalty

Wayne IS Revver royalty for sure. I am the part of the Revvers that gets turned into hot dog meat...( I deserve it!)

Revv on brothers- Oh, and below is one of the more telling moments in Revver history. Speed Junkie doing an "AAR" (After Action Review) on the subject of.....Well, basically how landing upside-down is considered a "crash" and NOT, as previously thought, a landing.
