Hey Stick... looks like you are close to Pork Pie, you should look him up to talk about Salt Flats racing....

Dang, that's true... about 40 miles from here so basically just around the corner.   rolleyes

Well, we missed a record by .18 mph, but we had a great time!  The gal behind the bike is Denise, the 183 mph bicycle rider.  The rest are Doug, my pit boss this year, and two of my high school friends from way back.

I adore ALL these guys to just jump back in after they went through scary moments during a pass (counting the events this year).

David Spangler went even faster after that and eventually hit 503mph exit speed, Danny Thompson set his AA/BFS record,
the driver of the Dauernheim Bigelow Lakester had a very scary moment during Speed Week and went out again... RESPECT.

So, we are on our way to the start line (WoS) after leaving impound...Turbinator is right in front of us...i'm driving the chase truck...we're talking about how sleek the Turbinator is......the line of cars speed up and slows down.....i mention that i sure would not want to run into the tail of the Turbinator....we both turn and look at each other......Carlos says do that and you would forever be know as "that guy"......i slowly back off the throttle......Carlos keeps talking about being "that guy".......i keep slowing up more as he keeps talking about being '"that guy"....i mention that it is HIS truck.....not having any of it he says i would be "that guy" and could never set foot on the salt again........!   i slowly pull off to the left and pass the Turbinator.....exhaling as i make the pass...!  Watching the dog stick his head out the drivers window  of a car parked off to the right ( of the Turbinator) and howling away as they started it up  up added some humor to the moment. wk

  Troy came out today and we worked on installing new  hat, rotor and caliper on left rear. Of course it didn't just bolt right up.

  Housing ends must not have been welded  in the exact spot and a bit angled. So not parallel with rotor. caliper would not install without grinding down mounting pads on caliper. Almost got it just a few more thou of shaving. Plenty of metal left.

  Hope other side goes better.

We have two separate GPS systems, one is Mil spec and if I'm not mistaken runs at 50 Hz.  The two are used to determine vehicle speed, and that is compared with driveshaft speed.  A math channel takes care of the heavy lifting.

Hope this helps.

On site weather stations show traces of rain. My son and I had course prep duty this weekend, from the SCTA property at the west end it looked fine, there were campers and trailers out there with ultra lights taking off and landing. I checked SCTA and Friends of El Mirage  Facebook and web pages but as of 8:00 AM there was no notice of closure. We learned after driving out there that course prep was called off.

The story I submitted was chopped down considerably, but I am thankful that land speed racing got at least some space on a national platform.
Take a peek for yourself using the link below.
