Just saw a great quote by Hunter S. Thompson. Sure he was a bit "out there" but what he said fits EVERYONE who has or will run on the lake beds... "Faster, faster, faster, until the thrill of speed overcomes the fear of death!"  Awesome!

are you sure it isn't "Faster, faster, faster, until  the fear of death overcomes the thrill of speed!" 

Either way it definitely describes LSR

I'm dying to get it out there! One of the things on my list is to de-throne my friend Dennis Jones who crews on the Ferguson streamliner. He drove it to 260 mph and got his red hat and as far as I know is the world's fastest Pinstriper! That needs to change!!

Nice tank Brad. Just looking at it I can tell it's assembled and welded properly resulting in a really strong tank.

It's pretty cool how they did it. The panels are flanged at a 90 degree angle to make it less likely to flex, plus it gives it a flat piece to be welded to. Very strong and less likely to crack. Once I finish the mounts I'll mount all the bungs and filler necks.

Dropped in one of the water tanks and fuel tank to see how they'd fit. They'll work perfect. Now to finish the mounts and figure plumbing bung location.
