Some sections of this thread do appear to be a "rant", (muddying the waters) however this discussion has to be had,, I agree totally with KZScotts comments, thay are factual and right on subject 🙂

Dont you think you have too many different classes in US for land speed bikes.
If you define the bike to last detail what it can have or cant have, there is very small window what the speed will be.

Years ago when i rode my n/a Busa and changed the motor and setup every year, of course to make it faster every time, my friend stepped up with this simulation software, he asked me the power curve, gearing i was using and the weather for the day when the event was. He calculated the speed in less than 1mph, and since then the LSR never been the same for me, no magical speed increases or records anymore, and if there is , you should check the timing , there is always an explanation.

If we had the same rules you have in US, we could stay at home and calculate what the speeds would be.
But, fortunately , there is the weather , and turbos , which can create surprises, also mr Murphy.

No we are fine with the classs. We actually run those speeds, not calculated speeds.

If your meaning SCTA, USFRA, yes there are a lot of classes,AMA is pretty close to them too  ,  FIM is much more simple if you can work out there terminology and actually find the records listed

My opinion is this:

The rulebook says, for PP, "OEM engine displacement determines class for competition."

That would seem to be cut and dry. But if we have people on ZX14R's running PP3000, and getting in the club (which recently occurred, I believe I witnessed)....then I am not sure how we interpret that rule.

For clarity, maybe it needs to be specified in the rulebook..."no running above maximum base class displacement".

As far as what Steve has said, if he told Tim the details, and then Tim allowed it...well, you would have to ask Tim.

Nonetheless, it will all get square, one way or the other, I am sure of that.  :)

That is fine then sir, so do we.

It just takes part of the fun out when guy comes to pit and goes through the bikes and says what speeds they will run, and he is mostly right.
But then, the riders know each other for years, and know the builds and projects beforehand, (this also includes drinking beer together)

LTA, SCTA and DLRA  rules state that the competitor is responsible for nominating which class he runs in, it is not up to the officials,,
