It seems to be a modest effort the Brits have going.

Maybe a couple of old 70 somethings can get Boone Pickens interested?

Funding for the absolute land speed record is still not beyond possibility. Like any effort requiring advanced technology, it requires a plan and a budget to attract sponsors. The Blue Flame had the American Gas Association pulling together more than 50 natural gas industry companies contributing to the land speed record effort. It also helps to be frugal in allocating the expenses. An example might be the "elaborate" pit area we maintained for almost 6 weeks at Bonneville. While we did use the old WW2 bomber hangar for a week while repairing the rocket, the roomy salt flats worked fine for us.

.....So if the guys that want their car to break apart are smart enough to know how it is going to wreck so they can make it break when and where they want it to.... more power to them....
I am not that guy.  cheers...

I have a feeling most of us are "not that guy".

Great to see you working on the car  cheers cheers.  Since the last one set so many records, I imagine big changes are not in your plans,

I've got a small bucket of Ford switches. By hitting them against my palm, the only way I can get them to trip is longitudinaly (sp). Vertical seems to have no effect. Then again I am going from memory and that ain't near what it used to be. Going to the shop to test memory. grin

yes we want to be able to see how much front and rear clutch slip we have and how much wheel spin we have

Great to see you are building a new Bockscar!!! Looking forward to watching your build and see what ever new modifications you will be incorporating. After running the old car for so many years I am sure you have a long list of "If I every do this again I am going to change (insert long list of changes and new ideas here)" .

From what I've heard, sounds to me that the trouble is not the switch but the track roughness.


Ron, the three mile short course was rough but not so bad as to trip an inertia switch. Maybe I was the only one having this problem or I just had an overly sensitive switch. Either way, I want something better for next year. Conditions at Bonneville are not getting any better so our new reality is a rougher track and vastly different surface conditions. Just trying to get the car ready for whatever the track gives us.
