Hey Woody, grin

Thanks for the photos............Where was the pic taken of the salt blister. Certainly doesn't look like it is anywhere near 5ft thick does it? Certainly don't lose that one for future reference when the BLM sez "more study is required....." shocked

Thanks again. Glad you are having a good time. cheers

Here is a nice pic of the salt "condition". I drained my cooler onto the salt and this hole appeared at about 30 seconds of the drain water hitting the salt. This is in the pits and the salt is not more than 3/4 inch thick

That's a really nice set of photos Justin and I really liked the layout. They're big enough to look at and if you want more detail on an individual shot it goes to full screen size. Well done.  cheers cheers cheers

Nice photos Justin.

I'm relieved to know you brought the corn stalk and it hadn't just sprouted thru the thin salt.  rolleyes

Rex, I'm looking at this picture and thinking all it would have taken was a cloudburst to have stranded the whole event.  Fortunate to have had dry weather going in and during, I'm glad SCTA-BNI was able to pull of the event, and I expect the tracks were thicker, but that just doesn't look safe.

First of all - Gregg, thanks for all the pics (as usual). I'm so tied up with keeping the car running (#1429 /RMR) and waiting in line that I rarely get to see other cars and folks, so your (and others') coverage is most welcome. And thanks for stopping by to chat out on the line. Some people have questioned the size, location, and efficiency of our "backwards NASCAR cowl induction" shown in your secret spy shot :evil:but it worked well enough to  get us gas and fuel records in "B" class (photos shown in "D" trim, unfortunately less successful). Again, thanks for all your effort both on the Salt and in ECTA.

Midget - The condition of the racing surface on the long course was (by my driver's comments) was spotty in the first and second timed miles (2 to 3, 3 to 4) and awful in the last timed mile. He persevered, however, and after setting qualifying and record times in 3 - 4, ran the last mile and gained an average 3 mph in 4 - 5. The throttle and travel data are the largest peaks and valleys I've seen. I would love to hear comments from anyone who ran the last mile with solid suspension. My shortened Ohlins dirt track coilovers got us through the rough spots.
