Re: What have forum members been up to?

Well that right there is some serious hours just in the metal work and it looks well for it too!

Re: Other Speed Record Breakers Are Available!

Thanks for noting which way up it is sitting, not having a decent television ATM, I could not quite ascertain if it was upright or not.

660ft is a fair way down (1/8th mile?), but is it beyond recovery at that depth? I guess time will tell.

Re: Other Speed Record Breakers Are Available!

Either way, a tragedy and not the first incident to occur there, which in and of itself raises serious questions. Just to clarify the intent of this part of my previous post.. It was intended as raising questions about how safe the vehicles are/were for the intended speeds, whether suitable safety ...

Re: Other Speed Record Breakers Are Available!

[snip] End of the run, this issue is starting to sound very familiar [/snip] Sounds similar to what can happen at the end of high-speed drag strip runs. I was once told, rightly or wrongly, that it was related to weight shift and aero destabilising the vehicle during the initial deceleration moment...
