I thought the Green Mamba was stolen and cut into piece a few years ago....

Yeah, disappointed...You'd think with the big budget and two professional radio guys on the air for 8 days straight we'd get our money's worth.  And, where were all the commercials like we get on station WUSS-FM ?
We wuz robbed !

Where do I apply for my refund ?        rolleyes

Slim and Ron did a great job  it should be understood that they can't get everything when multiple runs were going.

I thought the hamburger discussion was later in the week and not on Sunday

Like many on this forum, I'm always willing to learn. Can you explain that?

Jon, after setting a record (return run) you must go directly to impound.

After the qualifying run you can stop at pits?

I will add, go directly to impound after getting your timing slip, you will have to stop once to get the timing slip.

You cannot go through the pits after either a qualifying or record run. The timing slips are located outside the pit area very close to the impound entrance. One hour from the time stamp on the slip is the maximum time allowed to get to impound. One competitor was denied a record because they stopped to pick up a plug wrench in the pits.

Fortunately following a re-qualify they set a record,

Sort of interesting video from Instagram.

Cool concept; needs some tweaking.

Didn't the Summers Bros. run pump gas in the Goldenrod, back in the 409mph days?
I might be mistaken . . .

Without drag there will never be a CP.
There is a fundamental difference between forces and moments.  Cp (as is used in LSR) is a function of moment in yaw, drag is a separate force.

There is no one, repeat no one, who was as skilled at driving a jet-powered dragster around a banked track - with or without paving. Every Indy car and NASCAR driver can bow right down - thank you very much. Doug perfected his skills on itty bitty teeny tiny tracks and fine speedways all over the nation. Our show included not just a few laps around the track, but  often included a car-burning wherein we would chain the Green Mamba to some donated wreck of a car after knocking out all its windows. Then we would load that "volunteer" with all manner of combustible fuels and materials finishing up with  a nice dash of fireworks. Once the main event was over, the house lights would be killed and I'd fire up the J46 and stealth away leaving Doug in the middle of the infield. Slowly, the howl of the jet grew and the heat began to light up the chained car. When the thing was close to point of melting, Doug would hit the release switch inside the cockpit, leaving the chain and roasted wreck behind and then stun the audience into a furyby taking to the track for a few laps coming to a halt on the start/finish line where we would most always sell a ton of t-shirts and posters.

The show as never the same but it was ALWAYS an eye popping spectacle that sent the crowd home with plenty to savor for days afterwards.

It was a great life on the road. . . .It was meeting America one tiny town at a time.

So we are clear - the is the same dragster he drove on countless drag strips to easy plus 300MPH runs for more than 50 years. Show me a piston that can live that long after working so hard. God Bless the axial flow engine.
