Thank You. Been waiting for this data for years, Bill "VON" Fredrick was in- deed a genius and Budweiser is my personal favorite beverage.
But I've got to ask again. . .WHAT'S YOUR POINT?
Attached are the specs and artist rendering for a rocket land speed car Dick Keller designed in 1974 for Tony Fox. It had a 240 inch wheelbase, 4 foot 3 inch rear track, an empty weight of 1,800 lbs, and was designed to set a legitimate land speed record with a smaller fuel tank than the Budweiser car. JUST THE ENGINE in the Breedlove/Fossett car weighs about 3,500 lbs.
Even with a bigger fuel tank than the Keller design (138 gallons as opposed to 104 gallons), the Budweiser car had too much weight and frontal area for its fuel capacity to legitimately break The Blue Flame record or go supersonic.
