Reminds me of the time my father taught me how to play golf at an early age. Mechanics of the game were a matter of practice but he stressed the mental part even more, especially how to get in a competitors head. Those lessons served me well, not just in golf.

The record is a red hat  :wink: both worth celebrating....
With any luck, we will see the G/GL record fall, and the G/FL record as well...
Both are due...  :cheers:

Rob, you know luck won?t have much to do with it but you are 100% correct, both G/GL and G/FL records are ripe for breaking. I am just glad to see so many G lakesters chasing those records. 2021 should be an interesting year, if the planets align.

That is the luck part of it... we need good salt and good weather.  I have confidence in the Johns.... one of you should take the record...  I'll be running in fuel class.... oh that's the luck part as well... if I'm lucky that record will fall   :-o :roll:
OK, speculation/entertainment time is over... back to the work at hand...
What's going on with that Lakester John?  :cheers:

That's the problem with Johns - every house has one.
A Bonneville Lakester please barman.
Certainly sir; a lick of salt, a sip of gas and a twist of Lemming. More Lemming sir?
Just a squeeze.

A Squeeze of Lemming it is sir.

Working on the chute release; two levers.

Direct action is the solenoid / electrical release.
Indirect is the manual cable to the cockpit ejector seat handle.

The solenoid will happily be pushed / pulled with very little resistance so it will not get in the way of the manual release action.

I should have mocked the door lock release solenoid and tested it - I have made the brackets etc as if it is final - I hope it has enough grunt.

Levers on little bearings?  Not to worry, the door lock solenoids have quite a bit of grunt to them... Keep up the good work...
it is coming together nicely  :cheers:  :clap
