Brian, thanks for those pictures.  Seems like even when were ready for bville we are always thrashing to get the car fixed to run again.  Maybe next year will be the year we can relax and just run the car and visit more with our neighbors. cheers

We had a couple good videos of the car going by at the 3 1/2 mile mark but the person taking the video taped over the previous runs. cry  I still have the in car videos but I wanted to hear the sound of the car going down the course from a spectators point of view.  Anyone have any of our car?  I'll try to get the in car ones done soon. cheers

Troy, you, your dad and your crew are the epitome of what Bonneville is to me. Even with the challenges and struggles you had to deal with, you guys all had smiles on your faces because you love being there. Thanks for the hospitality and friendship. Andy and J.R..

HEY PALS, it was marvelous to see you.

Hang in there.

See you at Gas Up?

FREUD

  Great seeing you too Freud. It was real nice going to the Gas Up when I lived only 15 miles away now its 220. I know we are going to our friends 50th wedding anniversary in Santa Barbara in Sept and my grandsons wedding in Denver in Oct. but never say never.
  Hope you or someone has a video.

I've got some videos.  They are not in order of our runs, I'm waiting on a SD chip to download the rest of the videos.  This first one is my dad on return record run.  We qualified four times but only got one chance for the record.  This was his attempt, he had problems remembering to turn a couple things on during his qualifier and went 268 in the 2 1/4 and shut down early and went through the mile at 269.  This run he had a lot more power, didn't quite make it very far. grin grin

Bville,  what was that orange thing that smacked the windshield during the spin ?  Was it the pilot chute  or a cone or course marker ?

That was the half mile marker, it left two pipe marks on the passenger side door.  When I see this video, I laugh every time thinking I'm glad it wasn't me that hit it. grin

  Ho ho ho you were supposed to show that one last. Well I wasn't laughing.
  Going 170 at that point. Notice the difference in the throttle application in the 285 in the first mile video,[not here yet] I wasn't going to loose it 2 in a row rolleyes

I don't know what happened to the audio on this video but it starts out with a lot of static and eventually gets better. angry  This is our fastest run to date in the first mile.  My dad short shifts all the way to high gear and then goes all out on the TPS.  As you watch you can see a weld brake at the blower tube connecting the pipes just before the window, another weld broke at the connector pipe going through the fire wall.  This break is more apparent because you will see the hood pop up due to the burst of air beneath it.  Our 2 1/4 time was 268 mph and our mile time was 285 mph.  The blower tube popped about 2 1/2 to 3 seconds before the 3 mile marker.

  I didn't make the 200 club after that spin but were really happy with the 267.97 21/4 and 285.472 1st timed mile or mile 3 time even though it quit running about 2.5 sec and 1100 ft to end of mile 3. Tacking 310.6 when blower tube connector came loose. This is a good time for us and were happy with the way the car handles at speed and hooks up [nothing scary unless you get to carried away in 1st or 2nd]
  On the qualifying run the day before we had a 268.109 21/2 and a 269.424 1st timed mile speed, but the most encouraging thing is that we were taching 23 mph more [ 295 vs 272] at the same 51.8 secs on this run than the 285 run. Unfortunenatly the video on this run didn't come out [not turned on]? but I believe it quit just after entering the 1st timed mile [between the 2 and 21/4]
  We can fix the blower connection problem and I think I have the valve problem figured out and we have some ideas for more low speed traction.

It sorta scares me how hard that mile marker sounded when it whapped the car -- knowing that I went through one of 'em (4 1/2 mile) on the long course, at about 200 (199.586 in the previous mile).  I've still got black and blue bruises on my pinky finger where the clutch lever slapped the finger between lever and handlegrip, and a few other marks, too.  But the marker you hit sure looked and sounded harder than the one I went through -- or maybe it wasn't, but I was really lucky.

I promise to pay better attention to where I'm going.

Hey, J222 and Bville Racer.

There were 504 entries  participating, but a minority were true RACERS. You guys were certainly at the TOP of the RACER's list.

Keep up the hard work!

(Carefull of the spin demons, though -maybe ya outta re-adress the front to rear.)
