Here is the latest I have from the driver, crew chief, builder. The first engine was tuned on the dyno before El Mirage last month. It then broke...
Do a search for the 2014 GNRS, look at all the posts and marvel at the largest gathering of LSR cars other than on the salt.
In all my years at Bonneville and other venues I have never seen a Viper in the 220 range. Timing slips or it didn't happen.
Americara with Ray Everham, about the same as all others.

Tanis is Seth's wife. Tegan is the daughter, she would have been too young for that photo.
The Herda car is in a private collection. I don't think there is public access.

Sorry, can't help. Sources dried up.
At some point in the car's journey I saw it in the back yard at So Cal Speed Shop during an open house one time. It was identified to me as the...
You won't get Jack, he passed away in 2010 IIRC.
As mentioned in the post above Wayne Yeats now has the molds and is producing tanks and...

I liked the film, know the story and figured any film with Ron Howard attached would...

I can get over to the shop again and try to make the...
As I mentioned in an earlier post the team moved the driver up in the car, off his back, and ditched the periscope configuration at the SCTA Tech...

At 71 yrs of age, a -20 firesuit(with all gear) and 92 deg. temp it was too hot for me to drive the roadster for the first time. I will get my...
