The Rolling Bones guys burned up some stuff.... I bet it sounded great just before it melted down.

Link for Monday audio livestream
Looks like a modern 4 cyl. engine....thought the Bones were running a Y block!
Tim hit a piece of motorcycle exhaust after the 3, blew right rear tire and tore the radius rod out of the frame at 192mph. No spin.
With the car count down and reports of the salt being good it surprises me that they already had to move course 1.
Heard they actually have 3 #1's to alternate
Wow...I hope that Mctim is okay...that would have been a surreal experience...
It was actually a piece of header off an orange camaro from Texas. Tim is fine.

New link every morning. He has music on right now while he runs out to where ever as it is a pretty much a one man show. If you hear music on today's broadcast it means that he is out of the trailer.

Really liked this recap, appreciate the people that take the time to post. Can't think of a bigger thrill than building your own car and running it at Bonneville. Wish I would have tried 20 years ago!
Another record for George Poteet and the Speed Demon, AA/BFS new record 437MPH!
Look at that exit speed!!!!! WOW!!!!
Looks like Poteet is doing what he does best.........'raising the bar'!!!!
From their information:
Back in inpound today.....We are going for a average speed record over 450mph.
The engine definitely has the ability to this.
We'll wait and see what they do tomorrow!!
460.6 !!!! makes me think of the hot rod lincoln, "telephone poles look like a picket fence", only in this case it would be a fact

Listening to it right now!
Poteet 469.2 , 477 out the back door !
I have it on but it doesn't come over very loud on my laptop speaker.
thanks all for posting results. pardon my ignorance, but what is mr poteet using for power in that missile ?
More than one with different stages of tune from what I gather.
great in depth article, thanks. amazing machine, just fucking amazing
Exit speed this morning on return record run was 480+. The average of two runs is the new record for AA/BFS.
I thought they hurt the AA engine.
They rebuilt it in town, overnight earlier this week.
