Some more news from bonneville,
i will just cut and paste some of the good bits.
At 6.55pm today we made a 180mph run down the strip, and more important than that… We ran an average speed between mile marker 2 and the 2 and a quarter mile marker of 175mph. This means we are now allowed to run on a longer track and try and gain speed over a longer distance. So tomorrow – 2 more runs, on the long track in the original body kit to try and push that pro-record even further out of reach.
Tomorrow is the last day on the salt. Long track, and an early attempt at qualifying. Straight to impound and at noon they shut the tracks. We then have one hour to work on the car, and then back out we go to try and back up the run. Fingers crossed we can “do some more damage” as we’ve already been accused of this week J
Then it’s pack up – try to leave most of the salt behind and home to the motel before we all start the long trek home.
Finally – my personal aim over here is to capture data log evidence of our engine running 10,000RPM.. Today I got a 9,975RPM – nearly there
