Until someone raises the bar to 500 mph it's still a open game. Next year will be interesting for sure. Lots of cars in the works.
Salt fever is calling for a fix.

What happened to Viking 31, or was that just for the model?

This car is to sexy for the salt, to sexy for the salt, way to sexy for the salt.

Asking questions is one's only way of getting answers. As a young boy I was always taught that there is no such thing as a stupid question. It suggests that the quest for knowledge includes failure, and that just because one person may know less than others they should not be afraid to ask rather than pretend they already know. In many cases multiple people may not know but are too afraid to ask the "stupid question"; the one who asks the question may in fact be doing a service to those around them.

It is still Viking 31. The importance to that number is that it is considered as a project of the auto design and engineering section of

Western Washington University and has the same privileges in other colleges and universities in the State of Washington as does

any project developed within the halls and walls of that institution.

It's rather like Diplomatic Immunity. You can't buy it.

The Fed Ex driver told me that The Friends of Space Travel want Hume to build a new Space Shuttle.

I'm certain that he will let his friends get free rides.

I agree. Put it in a museum as a fantastic work of art.

But that time will come. First there is a job to do.
Well, it used to be Los Angeles . . . 50 miles north of Fresno now.
Just remember . . . It isn't life or death.

Dean, you are correct. Thanks for your understanding.

They are working 120 hours per week.

I miss the progress on many of the parts and can only show some of them in the finished configuration.

But it's still fun for me.

Sparky and Dean,

I agree with both of you. It is just to bad the salt is so corrosive, but I guess you could say it will add patina to the car. LOL.

Maybe someday some gearhead will win the lottery and buy a piece of property that could hold a 12 mile asphalt Landspeed course. Then we would never have to worry about corrosion, or someone mining the surface away, or special interest groups trying to get us banned from running on public lands. Oh well, we can always dream.

Lets make it 15 miles and cooling pipes in the surface to keep the temp down.

It would also need a hotel with inexpensive rooms.

A new post just this evening.
