Ah yes, another August trip to the Bonneville Salt Flats has come and gone. We fought the good fight again but were plagued by Magneto issues and managed to get only 100MPH out of the old 500cc pre-unit this time. BUT!!! Exciting news we learned a lot about burning Nitro-Methane. We ran 10% all week and got pretty good at knowing what we needed in the way of timing and jets to run that evil substance that goes BOOM at much higher velocity than gas.
Big thanks to my Crew, I could not have done it without you guys. Dave too!! He is just not pictured here because he had to go home early. Cheers guys, you rule. Thanks to John Glover for the awesome pics too.
