After setting the record it looks like they made two down runs on Tuesday the 17th.  One on short course and one on long course.  Can't tell from the results which run was made first. 

Down run on long course shows them a bit slower.  No other info . . . .

Just  quick note. Sorry for little contact. We had no wifi all week.  I did the driving, Udo loaded me in and did the push off duties. The above quarter speed of 176.903 was on the short course and qualified us for the long course. Best run of the week. We had been chasing engine gremlins at the start, got it together for 3 decent runs, first 2 set the record and then pushed harder to get the better time iin the 1/4 to qualify for the long course.  We had high hopes but something was off from the start, thus the slow long course time. Long story short embarrasing long course time with something wrong.  Oil temp spiked and on pulling the filter found some metal shavings and clear specks of bearing material so hurt the motor somewhere and we are on way home. Will get some photos up when get back. Thanks for allt he support.

Sorry, couldn't keep up with build photo's at the end, camera batteries quit, had to keep working on the car.  Finally finished leaving for SW a day late.  36 hours driving time with a few short stops in between we arrived in Wendover Friday nite after midnight.....Car passed tech with no issues, definitely a tense moment with inspectors looking at every detail.  Even after arrival the work never ended, had some minor tuning issues, fabricated a plenum extension thought that would help (hammer/ tailgate break and racers tape).  Even though we still have to sort out the gearing and other minor issues we mananged to qualify for the record.  The morning of the backup run was the first moment of quiet time I've had in over a month.  Took the time to take a few photo's, B'ville is awesum when the sun rises!!!!  We backed up our qualifying and reset the record by 15+ mph to 178.835 that's what this was all about.....Returning home a few pics of what was accomplished prior to SW, as you can see the salt was very hard on the car.....Now that I've taken a week to unwind I will disassemble BB down to the last rivet, repaint, rebuild and make "like new" and next year we will have the body and paint work completed.  Thanks to all the people who stopped by to say hello who had been following the build since the beginning.

Udo, you did good, I am really impressed with the build, feels like I was there helping everyday last year. Congrats on the great build and the record first time out. You for sure have salt fever and a forever memory. You have the time to do the changes for next year without the pressure and deadline like this year. Congrats again.
 cheers

Ha, hardly first time. Don't you see the red hat (on the Lister- not a bonneville car though) in his signature.  However, on his first time he was off the trailer ovder the record and in the 2 club ( as soon as licensing passes were under belt). Knows what is about. Now we just have to get the bugs out of the engine- huh cry systems ( my problem)

Three weeks ago I was still building the car, now, i'm in reverse mode.  The Salt was hard on the car especially the bare metal... I tried to cover with a shaker can paint....paint was no match for the salt. Yesterday spent day taking the car apart, which seems like a tedious job, but needs to get done.  Should have it complete by next weekend.  Some of the detail I didn't post prior to leaving for SW, a Polaris Snow Mobile swaybar, totally enclosed driveshaft cover........ Garage is full again.....need more room!

Yes a very interesting car, it will be a good looking car when all painted up.

Here is a quick shot of the car at speed near the 2 mile post.

Yes and Udo I think a cool scallop design on that awesome headrest fairing would just finish the paint job nicely.
