This is a very nice and well built car.  I worked with Will and crew at bit on the salt - good group of folks and great car.

I've only been able to do some shakedown runs for licensing.
So far its been up to 155 for C license.in 2011 i did a gear change and was hoping to really get it up to speed,but my water to air intercooler sprung a leak inside and i decided to call it a day.
I'm confident that the car has the potential to go 200mph if not more with the right tune and more boost added.at this time we are only running 10psi of boost.

Nathan , how are u man?
Good to hear from you.thanks for the kind words.
I just got back from Wendover,there is alot of water on the salt.
I'm hoping the weather will change and things dry up.would really like to get this car up to speed.
I might decide to take it over to EL Mirage instead.

Why do I love Bonneville racing? Because some one will build a car that is one small box on top of a larger box, build a really killer motor for it and try for 200mph!!! Only Bonneville racers would do this!!! Nice car and beautiful work on the engine.

That sounds like the better plan IMO.
