Is Jessi still involved with the NAE project?
I was wondering because she hasn't posted
anything on her Facebook page about your
new web site rollout.  She has almost 315K
likes, surely her popularity would be an asset
to your program.  Just wondering, go fast!

Jessi is still involved. She will be flying up for our engine/system checkout at the end of the month. She is going to start ramping up her media stuff so we can get more exposure and hopefully get some revenue generated. I have to raise a quick $25,000 to give to the BLM in order to move ahead with obtaining the needed permit to run at a lakebed in Nevada.

The latest chapter on the "behind the story of the NAE" has been posted. Here is the link to it......http://www.fromspeedtosound.com/story/trials-and-tribulations/

"My, people come and go so quickly here." Dorothy, from the movie Wizard of Oz.

"I have marveled often at the thin line that divides success from failure, and the sudden turn that leads from apparently certain disaster to comparative safety." Ernest Shackleton, Antarctic Explorer, 1874-1922.

From the movie Dr. Strangelove, General Jack D. Ripper:

"Mandrake, in the name of Her Majesty and the Continental Congress come here and feed me this belt boy... Mandrake, come over here, the Red Coats are coming!"

"He said war was too important to be left to the generals. When he said that, 50 years ago, he might have been right. But today, war is too important to be left to politicians. They have neither the time, the training, nor the inclination for strategic thought. I can no longer sit back and allow Communist infiltration, Communist indoctrination, Communist subversion and the international Communist conspiracy to sap and impurify all of our precious "automotive" bodily fluids."

On April 23rd we did a full function test of the engine and systems, including our data aquisition and radio communications and everything checked out with an A+.
I've been working very hard to get a permit (NEPA) to utilize the Diamond Valley lakebed in Nevada but to get the permit I still have a great deal of baseline environmental
data to provide to the BLM plus $25,000. If I can get that permit approved, that would open the DV to all of us other racers that want to utilize it for land speed runs.
So far, I can't get the support of any of the other racers that want to run toward the 500 mark. It seems a little short sighted to me as it can benefit all of us if we can
get the approval but so far I'm going it alone. I've also been looking at some other venues but none of them offer the distance and smooth surface that is available at DV.

The Eagle is ready to make some 600+ runs now and all we need is a track. Bonneville is just to thin and Black Rock is to rough. We're ready but our government isn't
giving us any help at all. Still looking!!!

Great sounding news, Ed.  I hope the project reaps some big rewards - $$ among them -- from this hookup with MS.  I look forward to watching the program develop further.

Bump!


Nice work getting on with Microsoft.  What happened with Lenovo?
Hopefully your test runs will all be funded well this season.
Now get the word out, or pay someone to do it for you.
Get out there and set some REAL records for once.  Go Fast USA!
