.
Hope all goes well at B'ville guys,Streamliners , Lakesters , Belly Tanks etc , are all Waaaay Kooool !! But a 300 mph Doorslammer is TOTALLY F#%&@' AWESOME!!!!!! (I've only got 204 out of mine so far,and hold the DLRA C/GCC record at that speed).
Push it till it goes Bang,Hope you make 300.
 Keep an eye out for our Aussie entrant,Norm Harding in a '34 ford Roadster.A few of our guys will be there.
All the best from down under,(wish i was there to see that 302???mph),but someone has to stay behind to keep the country going.
 Cheers , Bob.

  GOES BANG? Auuug!! Good hearing from you Bob, nice car [put a Procharger on it that would up the speed] grin What color and # is Norms 34? I'll say hello if I see him or have him look us up.
  We have it redlined at 7500 but not comfortable running it that high especially for very long, I just have to remember to look at the oil pressure, when it gets up around 260 I sometimes forget.
  I've only driven once with new engine and was having troubles with blower tube coming off and seeing out of car with bi-focal glasses, so Troy drove the rest of the Bville meet and always drives at El Mirage.
  Anyway he says it starts to turn into a real animal about 6500 so he just shifts it, 6750 is 306 mph if my program and tire growth figures are right.


                JL222 cheers

This year we will have three video cameras on the salt.  One will be an in car camera and the other two will be used on course.  Hope you enjoyed all of the previous ones.  When speed week is over I will have plenty to post.  Here is the only one from last year.  It was my first attempt using my helmet cam inside our car, unfortunately it fell off and we didn't use it the rest of the week.  I have repositioned the camera so it has a better section of the window to look out of and it is secure.  In this video I had no tach and I was taking it easy because of it.  This run was still our fastest ever in the first mile. cheers

Fun ride -- and with this year's better camera work, the best is yet to come.  Easy run or not, I just can't wait 'til I get back out there and hear engine after engine, see run after run. . .  Only a week and a half now.  Best of luck.  See you on the Salt.

   It was a great run untill you hit the marbles, 230-235 on data log in less than 20 sec. and a long way from end.
