No I'm not bored today -- just waiting on data my field crew should have gotten the two days I was out this week (and I'm worthless). I found something you might like. Walt's bike is #9797 and after licensing runs went 174.947 (ECTA April 2009 run log). There is a nice picture of it posted by Shane Butler (Warp 12) in a thread "April Pictures" started @ May 2009 on this site/board, whatever. There is also a picture of one of our more esteemed inspectors just below it.

Was this the bike?
I'll look for shots of the right side -- but I think this is a good starting point.  And - from the class - I see it's blown.


Okay -- I don't find any others.  Sorry -- but what you see is all I got.

This is the model I have, although this year they updated and increased the horsepower, as well as changing driver position and a few other things. Is this recent? If its from this year, then its definitely the same. If earlier, there are small discrepancies that differentiate the two.

I think I remember that these photos were from one of the 2009 events.  I'd have to go back through to find 'em -- but since there's only been one race so far this year -- yup, they must be '09.

Thanks. I'd definitely appreciate knowing what he ran, especially if I'm running the same/a similar bike.

OK, I'm confused again (surprise). What is P/PB ? I thought production could only be P/P or P/PP. Maybe there is a blown production bike, but the Rocket isn't.

Was that run at Maxton or Bonneville?

My wife says that you should take up heroin.  It's cheaper.  She's watched my steady down hill slide into poverty caused by LSR - and I just run an old Camaro.

But come on out - you'll have a blast.
