Bonneville record is 276.
You might want to look at cleaning up some drag. You could go to a skinny wheel n tire (tyre 4 U) combo on the front, there's MPH to be had there plus cleaning up the air on the back side of the axles.

Sid, are you trying to scare them... its 236... what book are you reading....

Pay attention Gyde! or I'll box yer ears!!!

E motor.

Aus record is us at 215.041

Bonneville Kelly and Hall 236.xxx ( I tried to look it up just then, the SCTA site is ^@%$^%$!)

So that's 21mph, that's a lot.....but the spreadsheets say we need 420 to 440hp to get there and we've got a little more than that. I just need to change my driving style from "trying to break the car" to something a little more along the lines of "lets get this thing over the line".........

As you can see "E".  :-D

Hi All,

A local photographer from Melbourne Marcus Thomson is looking for a room, a bunk, something closer than SLC for Speedweek, he's just registered here as Sparkythomson.

Check out his work and let us know if you know, anyone who knows where he might lay his head.

Pics here....

Still have the same sun-burnt conversion van, it'll pack a few around but it only has one bed. He can chuck a tent up on the mountain where we set up camp. Steve sets up a shower stall so you can shower with a hang bag. That's hang bag not hand bag! :-D

You can also take a shower in the trucker's facilities behind the Salt Flats cafe.
