Every few pages I like to put up videos of our runs so if people want to find them they can locate them a little easier.  These are some of our better videos.

     These are in 2008

  In the last video above, the hood rises in the middle because of 4000 cfm air from the supercharger being released by the blowoff valves. Blow off valves release pressurized air when throttles are closed to prevent harm to supercharger impeller. These devices were not invented when we first ran centrifugal blowers [1989].
  Later this week when Bvillercr comes out, we'll attempt to video the FAST. computer data showing the throttle position -shift points-rpm and time during our 280 21/4 and 294 1st timed mile run.

I just wish the lake bed could get enough water to make a good surface for November.

Both of you would lose some sleep, but u would be there to run.

  well.... our AA motor just needs to be taken apart and checked but I believe the short block is ok :-)
  A few years ago 03? it rained like heck in Oct, and trapped some hikers up by Shaver Lake in the Sierra Mts behind me for a week in the snow. Now you got us thinking :-P

Did the motor in the car at speedweek get hurt?
If so I'm quessing it was a smaller motor?

  Evo.... on our 294mph pass just before end of ist timed mile a piston skirt broke this is a 496 cu in A motor. Our old
528 cu in motor is one J and S East Valley Garage in  Montecito Ca repaired for us several years ago out of a Fuel Funny Car [ left front corner blown off]

  We will be tearing the engine apart later this month to see exactly what and why.

  The pistons are out 4, good ones 2 middle rings stuck I really bad 1 bad but not as bad as #1.

   Bvillercr will post pics later. Looks like part of problem is piston not thick enough where oil ring was machined.
   Pin was still free in piston that was destroyed and bearings looked good.

We definately had a few bad pistons.  This first one isn't too bad, but not usable.



Same one on the inside.



without the rod



This last piston we think is the result of what started to happen to the first piston in the photo.



you can see the top starting to split where the intake valve relief is, on the right.
