Yep -- I know it died again.  I'm working on it.


Dodge streaming won't reboot this time.  I'll type what I can for you.  Sorry it's crapped out.

Ack is moving -- through the one.

Chute out at about the 2.  Run has ended again.  He's at the 3 1/2.

Pork Pie, this is a test and tune now, the shoot out is re scheduled for after the world finals. cheers

Glen,

yes, I know that this is a test and tune and not the Shootout....but Mike Cook said, that they will have only this 132 feet speed timing....but when I follow all the notes it looks not this way....license runs and measured miles...what is really going on?HuhHuhHuhHuh??

This Dodge jetpack is going to be replaced before the next event.  No question about it.  I'm going to give up on it for the audio -- 'til I have a bit of time.  Maybe a soak in liquid nitrogen will help.

Pork Pie:  The event is not FIA/FIM, and the course is only about 8 miles or so.  The timing lights measure one mile as well as the 132' trap at the (north) end of the course.  That's why we can have the two speeds recorded.  It has turned into a test and tune -- but speeds are being measured properly so "records", while not from a sanctioning body, can at least be compared to those set at SCTA/USFRA events or FIM/FIA.  Okay?

An un-named official visitor to the salt just ran his new Camaro through the lights.  The speedo showed about the high 130s.  The lights showed his pass through the mile at 150.8.  Now we know how fast that car will run.  No, I don't think it is other than stock.  It might be a rental - the fellow is not from America and probably flew here -- got the rental and played with it.  I'll find out since I expect youse guys will hassle over how much has been done on it/how fast is a stocker.

He ran the bike through the lights at about 130 -- don't have the exact speed.  There's a crowd around the tiing trailer - it's difficult to get good data with all the people there.

reading the notes here and on Facebook is confusing me....


PorkPie,

You are not alone. Reading Cook's Facebook page is confusing IMO.

Asking questions is one's only way of getting answers. As a young boy I was always taught that there is no such thing as a stupid question. It suggests that the quest for knowledge includes failure, and that just because one person may know less than others they should not be afraid to ask rather than pretend they already know. In many cases multiple people may not know but are too afraid to ask the "stupid question"; the one who asks the question may in fact be doing a service to those around them.

Here's the status of the event as of a quarter after 1 Wendover time:

Ack Attack is putting the bike in the trailer and going home.

Stupidbaker is changing engines - will likely run again but who knows when?

Big Red can run - just went to the 2 - no word on making full course passes.

Mariani 'liner may run - no word about the car and when it might run.

Speed Demon team is working with a 55-gallon drum of turtle wax trying to buff out the scratches.

Eva won't run again this event -- she's satisfied with the 270 from yesterday.  Going home with a running vehicle is cool.  Speaking of her -- she's chatting with one of the FIA guys here -- and having a blast.  They're talking Swedish back and forth.  Maybe telling stories about me, maybe joking about running 270 in an electric sidecar 'liner.  I don't speak Swedish.

Did I miss anyone?

It's something like 1.40PM out here and we are told that there will be nobody running for at least 1 1/2 hours -- maybe longer.  That means to me that the next run won't be until 3 or 3.30.  I don't know who that next vehicle might be.

Let's see how many there are/were.  Speed Demon, Mariani 'liner, Ack Attack, Big Red Camaro, Eva's electric 3-wheeler, Stupidbaker, the Baggo CX500 turbo bike -- and, umm, unh, I don't remember anyone else.  Have you folks got a memory that works and thinks of a vehicle that I've forgot here?

We're down to two vehicles.  I hear that the Mariani car is out with an engine problem -- valvetrain or something so won't run any more this event.  And although they've also got the roadster here, the engines in both cars were built at the same time so maybe the fault is in both builds.   They're done for this event.

Eva is done but hanging around.  Big Red did that 221 run the other day and will probably run again -- just don't know when.  Studebaker engine swap is proceeding -- don't know why they're changing.  Is it a class change, or try this one instead of that one, or because the first one got hurt?  I dunno. . .

Speed Demon has run out of Turtle Wax and is trying some WD40 and duct tape.

Is there a frame jig and some large 'c' clamps in the toolbox?

I would suspect that having enough energy to fly 345 feet, there has to a least a visit to the alignsment shop.

  It's really a sick joke.

The Big Red Camaro is running right now -- but from the 0 to the 2.  Nowhere near the timing lights.  Chute out at the 2 3/4.  Running for the camera crew, maybe -- but sure ain't nuffin' on getting to the lights.  I don't know. . . huh
