I have a coin flipper app on my dumb smart phone. I'll let you know what the coin decides.
Nate, I will call. BBQ Friday night. Save the Salt fundraiser from us unwashed heathens!
You should try running up the lakebed in binary code. 11000011111010011001110011001. When you're not a computer whizz its very embarrassing. But don't worry Jay. I have the plug wire labeled "1" so there's no fear of getting it crossed.
Looks like there's a total of seven Kiwi teams from New Zealand bringing cars and bikes to the salt, plus a driver who's driving a US car....more here....http://www.nz-hotrod.com/vbulletin/showthread.php?7993-Speedweek-2012-Kiwi-Teams
Had it all planned but a change of jobs and getting the 59 on the road canned it this year. sooooo pissed off . good luck . let the records fall.
I am glad you do it. I have a stack of your work that I will keep until they sell them at my auction. The best wall hangers ever.
You're lucky I don't crew for you, then! I can cross anything up

Trent! Ill be there of course and Ill volunteer to help if the BBQ becomes reality. Im flying in from Norway the weekend before for the usual thrash. Bringing a couple buddies from Bergen as well, I'll volunteer them for help as well.. we are having hell with our motor, hopefully on the dyno for the fourth session on monday...we'll get it sorted. Planning to drive out in my '50 Chevy from Texas with my buds for a fun road trip, should be fun for first timers in the US.
See ya'll there!
I just finished this car for the Johnston-Carbone-Wendt team.
They will be installing a 270 OFFY thumper and going for the XXO-VOT record.

Just for kicks I'll ask here...if anybody has the opportunity to help transport a banger motor from Flint MI to Bonneville (or Texas)..please let me know.
Try and her hold of one of The guys from EJ's team, the 723 team, I believe they're passing on route 80 sometime Monday the 6th of August.
You could try to get in touch with
Aussiesteve on here. He might be able to help.

48 Days! GULP!
first timer here, will be there on friday the 10th....
curious guys, approx. how many runs per day, time between runs ?
Cars are usually running continuously on at least 3 courses. An emergency or a technical problem occasionally shuts down the runs. This usually happens when you have your driver suited and buckled into a very hot race car. Plenty to do and see, even when they are not running.
thanks for the info John..... cant wait to see it, finally....
OK, HAMB BBQ plans are in place! We are doing this. Funds to go to SAVE THE SALT. The idea is to be set up Friday eve close to the road just East of the main group of campers at teh bend. I have banner and we will have an EZ up. MOre plans to follow.
^Sounds like a great plan.
