  Believe it or not I aspired to be a pharmacist entering High School and my curriculum was set up by my counselor to assure my classes included Chemistry, Advanced Mathematics and (ulp), the dreaded Latin which in those days was a very important part of Pharmacy.
  Let me tell you that trying to learn to speak or read a "dead" language is about as exciting as watching cow patties dry. Uno est pecuneie is all I fu#king remember and in fact the D grade I received convinced me that I should find a different "future" occupation.
  I did however excel at doodling flames and Hot Rods on my legal pads, and during the late sixties and early seventies I actually became a "Druggist" of sorts................

Sorry for the quick hijack, but Bob's comment reminded me of a place where I once applied for a job.

The interview went along fine and sooner or later came up the question of a drug test.  It was worded like this:

"Okay, it's time for the XX Marquette store's drug test.  Got any drugs?  Let us test 'em!!" :-D

Really -- they did include that line in the interview.  The managers from the big main store in Madison didn't do the hiring, obviously. . .

Over and out.

 I think the Langlo's run those (tires) at Bville, and most likely had them on at the Mojave Mile.  John?  Troy?

  Yeah Bob...we ran the 2291 at the Mojave Mile and they hooked up great. They spun a bit at the top of 1st gear on our ist run
but power was going away after that due to a bad 02 sensor, but still got to an indicated 227 mph on data logger, after speed limits were lifted.

          JL222

John, what kind of power do you estimate you were running at Mojave to go 229 MPH?

From my recollection, you guys run a supercharger that would be down on power at elevation as compared to sea level. What is the elevation difference between Bonneville and Mojave?

  Power was down on that last run due to a bad 0/2 sensor but my bville pro computer program shows 1350 +- hp.

  Also Troy didn't power all the way thru as their was still some speed limits.

There have been several people who have run that kind of speed at Maxton, Wilmington and Loring you should check with them and see what they were running for tires

Rim width is going to be really important to keep the tire on the bead as it grows in height.
