Hmmmm...

Rossa.org.uk

There seems to be an organization for speed record competitions only? Different classes and rules for them. Have anyone here tried this kind of racing?

All the videos of the Records seems to be from airports or highways at night time. Wondering what would be the minimum length of the "track" where this kind of a race could be held? Normal RC-track straight is appr. 50-80m. That is defenatly not enough.

Roelof I prefer nitro too but they have a class for rocket powered cars so rocket cars do count with the Rossa organization.

His name is Marc Davidson , He set that record along time ago. I don't remember what kind of motor he used. This is from the Rossa speed site check out the link http://www.rossa.org.uk/records-icbigblock.html
