Here's an unpublished car cam video of the Turbinator from WOS 2018.  Once we got our backup run done on the 482 run, the engine got turned up to 108%.  (We are still working on the traction control.)  It was a little too aggressive and Dave had his hands full.  Pay close attention after the 35 second mark on the video.  Watch the horizon too.  The number in the bottom right is wheel spin in % of actual speed.  He aborted at about the 1.5 while sideways and on two wheels, in the mid 300MPH range, with 25% wheel slip (~100MPH slip).  Tire surface temps his 375, and we burned all the rubber off all 4 tires.  The data from that run was used to fine tune the software, which in turn resulted in great performance at the Finals.  Thanks to Ken Braccio from Advanced Turbine Services, and his competent engineers Eldon, and Jeremy, the turbine magicians behind the curtain.

Let's see the logic in this  . . .

Streamliners are usually the fastest class.  They usually have less air drag so they are harder to stop.  So let's just allow them to have only 2-wheel brakes.

Hint to Altered, Roadster, Comp. Coupe, etc. entrants who have only 2-wheel brakes –– just move up a category or two and enter as a Streamliner.  I understand that no one checks (as long as the check is good).

 Stan great idea now I can run my rear engine modified roadster with rear brakes and dual chutes boy I was hoping one day to do this now I can excellent. Streamliner valve in block record  grin should be easy for my car.  cheers

Chris, for what it is worth... you are about to break 500 as well on this thread. Have not looked completely but I do not believe there are too many 500 page build logs on this or any forum for that matter. Have to ask Slim if you are the first to 500?

When it happens,  The Midget hits 500, pages that is.   shocked  cheers


Well, he has the "Unfair Advantage" of perusing about beer and "Sconnie Nation" eats, . . . . . . . not just the car, engine, driver, etc, . . . . . .

Good thing he's not from da U P . . . . . . 'cause he'd be talkin' "wood" . . . . . .  ya der hey . . . . .

 cheers  Dead Horse  cheers

Any octane you need. Rick (ERC) will ask size, comp ratio, etc, and recommend what you need. Rick seals the tank with a piece of duct tape and a marker. The "MAYOR" knows what it is supposed to look like and can tell if it's been tampered with.

Had a great business trip to Irvine Ca last week. Made time to visit Simpson and am now the proud owner of an SFI 20 suit. They did me a deal as I only ‘need’ a 15 but they didn’t have stock and when I called a couple of weeks ago they couldn’t make one up in time for my visit. Over specking the suit has been recommended to me so that worked out okay.

Talking to the nice man who will help with my engine build and this came up..... I will be running gas: what octane is typically available at Bonneville and perhaps a little optimistically: how are tanks sealed after a fill if one was on a qualifying run?
