Default Bonneville Salt Flats Record by a friend of mine:

http://www.gtconnect.com/articles/20...a01_speedy.txt

His 'crew chief' is another friend and co-worker who I used to turn wrenches with. You'll see Bonnie in the vid and mentioned a couple times.

What'* even funnier, is that THIS is his DAUGHTER. Yes, a member here:

Small world, I guess.

Here'* a vid of the Salt Flats run:

(right click, save as)

A far cry from our 200mph 600hp Bonneville and INTENSE'* Bonneville run, eh?

Same as on the Spirit. Look again at the pics. Low-drag (aerodynamic).

Nice run! How many batteries does that hold? (I'm assuming it uses car batteries)

Seems like it would absorb a lot of heat.

That wasn't the reason it was painted flat black, and the very few who know why will never share that information. There was a very good reason for it though. And not a soul here would ever guess.

Don't even think about PM'ing Todd or I about it.
