Just got a call from Johnboy, he's got the package, it was just a block away.   cheers

I sure appreciate the integrity of the gentleman who received it by mistake, he went the extra mile to find the owner.

Thanks to all involved, Don

Hey Johnboy
Can you thank that guy from the bottom of our planet

SoS crew.....Wanted to let you know that, your benefactor, Robin is at Wilmington this weekend.
I have seen her at Maxton, here in Wilmington and taken many pictures but never introduced myself to her.
I saw her at the drivers meeting this morning and did do the intro thing. After that was out of the way, I told her how COOL what she did for you guys. She was extremely modest about it and said that she had followed you guys from the beginning and admired what you have done and just wanted to be a small part of it.
The modesty really blew me away. GOOD on her and GOOD for you guys.

You can see her 1986 E/STR in my ECTA link:

We have a decal that the Reverend designed on our car as a tribute to WH700 the Canberra bomber that our tank came from. We are just discussing at the Colonel's suggestion a similar thing of Robin's 1986.

Don't worry, we are still pinching ourselves. cheers

Pay attention Gyde! or I'll box yer ears!!!

E motor.

Aus record is us at 215.041

Bonneville Kelly and Hall 236.xxx ( I tried to look it up just then, the SCTA site is ^@%$^%$!)

So that's 21mph, that's a lot.....but the spreadsheets say we need 420 to 440hp to get there and we've got a little more than that. I just need to change my driving style from "trying to break the car" to something a little more along the lines of "lets get this thing over the line".........

Kelly and Hall record is 236.431 mph (380.5 kph).

I think we should be targeting a nice round number like 248.548mph (400kph)
