There are notes on the back of each picture, turn your monitor around.

  Not to hijack this tread....but my new HOTROD just came and it has an interesting story called "New Concepts for Advanced Land Speed Racing Car Design". Keeping BV racing in the public discussion. Some interesting ideas.   George

Kind of reminded me of Arlo Guthrie singing a line from ?Alice?s Restaurant.?

Okay, Sid:  Here's how to add notes or comments between the pics:

Go to the Sid's Liner post with the pics, and at the very top/right you'll see the buttons for "quote" and "reply" and "MODIFY".  When you click modify you'll see the post - but it'll look like the attached screen shot -- lines and lines of code instead of the photos.  It's easy to tell where one ends and the next begins (I always leave a double space there), and in that space is where you should click your cursor and start typing your comments for the picture BELOW.

It'll help you keep things straight if you make a note of which pic is which so you known which you're talking about.  Go ahead, give it a try, and the worst that'll happen is that you'll do something wrong and crash the entire site, and London Bridge will come falling down, and it'll turn cold outside and all the diesel fuel will gel.  Don't worry -- I'll fix it tomorrow. cromag

Thanks for helping with all this Mate! I'll just let it roll & if anybody is interested I'll answer any questions. This whole build is only about me testing myself, it's not a "look at me" thing so now it's out there we can all carry on with our day.

I thought I'd filled in some details but that must have been a different dream.
The Engine is a 638" 6 bolt main KB-600 with an 11.250 deck height, Callies crank, dual plug Brodix heads & T&D shaft rockers. Two Electromotive Tech-3 ecu's on a single crank trigger for ignition & driving the Moran injectors. Turbo's are GT6029's & they (4) came off a Detroit 16V-149. Trans is a direct drive billet internals 400 with a modified 4L80E adapter onto a modified NP205 T-case with Chevy & ford output shafts. All the custom shaft's are 300M with Greek Couplers. Front T-case/reverser is built around two 7-1/2" gears from a Liebherr 995 excavator pump drive & there are direct drive/overdrive's in front of both pinions. The front diff is upside down facing backwards & everything has pumps.
Fuel tank is 32 gallons & on CG to not effect balance.

Your machine has come a long way since I saw it last!   It's looking really nice.

Sid,
I was wondering if you were running AABG or AABF class but with a 32 gallon fuel tank I am sure it is AABF!! I really like your use of the Liebherr gears for your over drive. Off road mining equipment is quality stuff and STRONG! They make their stuff our of the best materials and use the best manufacturing procedures and heat treats, good stuff. (4) hairdryers(?) are you doing turbo compounding?

"Four hairdryers?"
