Why the reference to a blown/fuel car? Is Seth thinking of a blower?

   O.K. here goes. Iv'e made this case about 10 times before but one more time.  Joe Law ran 370 exit and his 349 mph C record is still in my rule book ,and it was from 17 years ago. He ran a dinosaur BBC with a 348 crank in it. He had a wing. I paid some genius 2k about 25 years ago to build me a wing that gave my TAD 1200 lbs of down force with very little drag at only 6  degrees of angle. If Seth  can't afford to build a 2500 HP modern technology (think George Poteet) engine I'd be very surprised. Traction control, he can afford it. A wing designed by a genius, he can afford it. Those are all the elements that are required. Whether he wants to risk his life on less then perfect salt, that's anybody's guess. Dead Horse

Rumor on U-Twit-Face is that it is going to the Peterson museum.

   DW, I like being liberal with Seth's wallet as mine is empty. I look at Seth's car and support equipment and I think he has been pretty liberal with it himself. I know he has two turbos. I know his plan all along was to shake the car down at "lower  speeds",then put the power to it. I have no doubt  the car would respond to a big hit of turbo power. Added  benefit of turbo is the same kind of control Poteet enjoys.I see one of the most accomplished BV racers ever calling it quits and I think maybe we'll all be calling it quits before Sum gets his lakester on the salt.  cry

Seth sure did not like the state of the salt when he inspected it during SW '17. He didn't even pull his rig onto the mud flats, preferring to leave it in town instead. I quit the salt for good after SW '16.
(But, you'll find me in the timing tower.)

He is probably right.  Just came out of the water in Florida with the one sailboat with transmission problems.  My time and money only goes so far  cry  Right now I'm throwing both down the liquid salt path,

Sending one there might be a mistake.  How many vehicles did they sell off to put ugly red wings around a great old building?

Excellent points Rex....

I wonder what made Fred Dannenfelzer go 386 MPH pulling that big wing of his.....  smiley
Didn't Freddy go 399 out the back door on that return run?

    I think it was 386 mph like mentioned before. That is when Seth thought 400 was possible as Freddy's car isn't at all aero.
