And for that they are to be congratulated.

Leave it to a hot rodder to squirt water into something that is plugged in and call it R & D!

And you realize that you couldn't use this auxiliary (2nd) motor unless you run a streamliner.  And then you'd have a problem classifying it... electric - gas - hybrid.  Course you could always put the lectric motor into a trailer.  I heard SCTA allows that (only a rumor though).

And will the extension cord be considered leaving parts on the track?

We have been keeping the Lakester a secret from Jim for awhile and don't any of you spill the beans now and that includes anybody that reads this for him. wink

Anything that suppresses shrapnel formation one time is worth the ticket. Doing it for pennies is genius. Extra ponies as a benefit might get you a couple more mph but the wear and tear on the pocketbook is the true benefit; unless you only need 2 mph more.

You don't want to run it through turbine blades but even snow or chunked ice that is introduced to the intake path in appropriate amounts will not only benefit from the thermal capacity but for sure be atomised by the time it gets to the combustion chamber.
Think inner inner cooler.
If one can make room for all the associated do-dads with a turbo and an intake cooler, what is wrong with the NA pilots.
Are they missing some power ?
A very famous liner had the best NA engines available that tested excellent on the Dyno.
They failed to produce enough power in the car because the conditions inside caused the inlet temperature to go over 300 deg.
It is not just altitude that sucks your power (money) on the salt, but (heat build up) time and space too.
Just like tires, few realize how hot they really get under load. wink

My dad wanted me to post these pictures about water injection.  Here is some text about Ricardo and his testing. 











Nate this should help sell some more units.

Sir Harry definitely knew his stuff.  If it wasn't for him I wouldn't have this job.  wink
