Great pics. Thanks for sharing.
So we should expect a follow up to this thread with the epic road trip back home, right?
Is the roadster staying out there til the judging for 2019 AMBR is over?
I am trying to find a place for it at GNRS.....
Right up front.
Thanks for the great pictures and videos. Been to thr hill climb twice great time. Frank
I need to get to the hill climb before I'm grounded. I take 70 west thru Grand Junction and west to 15 every year going out the LARS and am fascinated by the scenery each trip, it never gets old. Looks like you had a good time and the pictures are great. Gary at Cornhusker
Cool trip! Thanks for sharing.
I look forward to seeing your roadster in person at the GNRS and need to make the trip up to Bonneville. Thanks for the inspiration!
It's a great time Gary. I enjoy Friday's Reliability Run the most.
Definitely living the dream as someone up above stated. What a fun trip this looks like it was or still is. It was great seeing you and Ashley at the Hill Climb. Thanks for sharing.
Cory, right after you passed the sculpture along I-80 by the east end of the salt flats, did you see the great white shark swimming in the salt, then about 10 miles later there was the sea serpent. We were passed it too quick to get any pics.
I missed the shark, but saw the serpent looking thing (no photo though). Any idea what the story behind them are?
Thanks for taking us along on the trip!!
No, that's the first time I've ever seen them .
Beautiful. Thanks for sharing Cory!
Ha, I see the shark and sea serpent when we made the trip to speed week. Very cool I thought also, but no photos. Thanks for the ride along on your road trip Cory and always good to see you at the hill climb.
I would like to know a little more about the clutch change as I have the same set up and don't like the pedal feel on mine. Thinking I have to heavy of a clutch in it.
Thanks for sharing the great thread and road trip story.
What's your pedal ratio and what pressure plate are you running? The RAM diaphragm pressure plate that I used is their "street" version. It's basically one step up from an OE replacement, but the spring pressures are still relatively low.
I tried to match the system performance that's in my 5w - the overall system mechanical advantage of a stock '32 system is 8:1 (when you combine the ~5.3:1 pedal ratio with the 1.5:1 clutch shaft/fork ratio).
Great coverage! Thanks for sharing. This is such a great photo.
Thanks for sharing some incredible photos, and a enjoyable time.
thanks for the trip, great memories!!
Get trip and pictures. good luck this weekend GNRS.
@CTaulbert Excellent report! Great Photos! We really appreciate you and Ashley coming out year after year!
We wouldn't miss it! You guys put on our favorite event!
