So I am curious--your blog leaves off with saying you will have more space at another area--have you tested there yet?
I'll definitely be watching this, keep up the good work
Thanks for the comments Mooshu!
No, I haven't tested at this new area yet. The last test session took place on 6/22/08. We are on schedule to try the new location this weekend (6/29/08). I reached 83 mph
but I was at the limit of the space I could run. We have about 700 ft of area to test. We test on a full size 1/8 mile drag racing track. But we dont test on the drag racing surface because it is way too slick. We test in the shutdown area that is right after the prepared drag surface. This has much better traction. So when we test, we start at the end of the 1/8 mile and drive toward the very end of the shutdown area. To get up to these speeds we have to go back as far as we can in on the drag racing surface, but we will just spin out. and we have to slow down before the sand pit at the end of the shutdown area. When I hit 83 mph
I was at the extent of the amount of space I could use. When you watch the 83 mph run
, you can kind of see when I start out I am all the way in the dark, very slippery prepared drag racing surface and at the end of the run I almost hit the sand pit. So its time to find new testing location to be able to get higher speeds.
Location where we have been testing
Possible new testing location. Much more room
