  Thanks Gary,   I don't for a minute think I rank with the earlier Studebaker hero's, from the earliest guy's like "Beachball" Sanchez up thru the Burkland's and Neil Thompson, to Bruce Geisler, John Edmonds and Les Leggit,  to the newer guy's like yourself, Hooley and Terry Hunt's beautiful (and fast!) Guam Bomb.
  As time marches by, I have had the advantage to learn from all of you and that along with rules which have allowed better aerodynamics and better engine parts, I realize that I am just a fly smilling about a fresh pile of sh*t and don't think for a minute that I am the "Herd Bull".
  Perhaps a little full of "the Bull" but never the less just happy to have the chance to chase you guys.
                                               Thanks again, One Run Bob..........

Once again I am asking for help on the fastest mile speed for a '53/'54 Studebaker on the salt this year. Of course this means researching Speed Week only.

This is for the Courtney Hizer Award. I know the shop has not completed the 2012 award for One Way Bob and I am on my way there to rectify the situation.

Thanks in advance,

  Hey!  That's "One Run Bob" not "One Way Bob"!  I have worked hard for fifteen years to keep from making backup runs and I have used MANY ways to do it!
  Someday I will write a book on how to make it happen..........  it's really easy.  Marlo suggested many years ago that I write a book on my adventures in towing to and from the Salt.
  Perhaps I could market them as a matched set (best read when one is suffering from a bad case of the "dumb shits" after a major f**k up on ones part).
                                                                                     Yours in suffering, One Run Bob    cheers rolleyes shocked

Is this for a stock body not a comp coupe? 

I'm sure someone must of gone faster in a Stude but my 5th mile for my A license was 213.460 with a 217.997 exit speed.

I thought I was going about 240 according to the tach but when we got home we found out that the new overdrive 4th gears were actually less overdrive than the ones we took out  cry.  

I think the car is going to be much faster than it was with the old motor as it was running 50% throttle and 1.16 psi of vacuum at the manifold (no boost at all) just loafing along.  We were all set to be up there this week to see what she might actually run but that didn't happen  sad,

I believe the award is for the fastest mile, whatever the class.

Sum --

Hope you understand I wasn't really trying to put you down.  I was just trying to add a little of my humor -- sometimes a bit too biting.

I've a lot of respect for you and your cohorts.

No problem, just didn't know if you saw the mile time.  I did look and the best I can tell the 9913 C/GCC -- Stupidbaker Racing ran a second mile speed of 226.408 on Wed I believe.  The part I can't figure out was the 3rd mile, exit speed, and top speed were all 999.999.  Does that mean the timing was screwed up for those traps?

Also the 352 C/GCC -- Coe & Thompson had a mile of 221.581 one day.

Dan don't go on the above as I might of missed a time for someone on one of the days. 

Looks like I came in a distant 3rd  cry.  I sure wish I would of know we had the wrong overdrive gears in the car and the rpm readings I was using for 4th were way off but the guys above had some really good runs and deserve the trophy.  Congrats to whichever one gets it and to all of the Studes that were out there this year.  It was a great turnout,

Hey it wasn't me it was Hooley and that is my story and I'm sticking to it  cool.  Of course I was the one that told him which ones to order  cry

After we got back I called them (G-Force) to see if they would give us some credit back on them for the right ones and told them they only had 2 1/2 miles of use but they wouldn't.  Did find a set of new Andrews gears for $100 and bought those and also two sets of better overdrive drive gears for $50 each and bought those.

We went with one of the new drive gear sets to see what they would do as they will bring 1st from 1.93 down to 1.73 and second from 1.34 down to 1.19 which might help as we can't run WOT in 1st or second now anyway.  Third is 1:1 and 4th is now .865 vs. the .970 at Speedweek (the old 4th was .930).

I'm now looking for a used 101 for the Lakester and we now have a number of overdrive combinations we can use for either transmission,

Wow, 8 Studebakers on the Salt this year. That would have made a great photo. I remember back in 06, I set up a date and time for a photo shoot out on the salt but we arrived late and missed it. We had front axle problems on the race car the first evening and the next evening we replaced the water pump on the Ford diesel, when we arrived I was beat.

I should have pictures of that someplace or another year the Studes lined up,

Plus there was an Izusu diesel powered 50 and a few pickups, too.
