Final Bonneville Update [15 Sep 2007|08:04pm]

strangelet
The boys didn't make it into the 200 mph club, but they did go faster than Hurricane Katrina's winds. The top run was 162 mph, that's about 180-185 on asphalt.

They did 5 runs yesterday, all without incident, but they noticed in the last 2 that they were losing speed but upping the rpms. Turns out that they wore out the super charger blades, they were no longer getting any boost. The super charger was fairly small this year, so they've decided to go bigger and better for next year, they're also going to change out the rear end. But they successfully pushed the car that they built to the limits of what it could do. They'll tweak and adjust and try again for the 200 mph club next year.

JT did the final run yesterday and did 78 mph, much to the amusement of the rest of the team. Andy did a final run this morning, but only managed 130 with the worn out super charger. They're currently cleaning the car, and then heading out for a well-deserved night on the town. They'll head back to New Orleans tomorrow afternoon, and yes, they are physically driving the car back as well. The super charger obviously doesn't effect the car's legal performance on the interstate. ;)

The first trip to Bonneville for the New Orleans Racing Team was a fantastic success!! For a team of guys who have never done this before and a driver who had never raced before, this is an amazing accomplishment!! Everyone at Bonneville knew who they were, where they came from and the story of the car and were all incredibly supportive of the team.

I'm SOOO Proud of Them!! And you all should be too.

Now go drink at Flanagan's and give the boys your support so they can buy that new super charger for next year. :)

Updates from the salt flats [13 Sep 2007|01:23pm]

strangelet
The boys had their first accident today at 11:30 a.m., nothing major. Andy spun out in the qualifying round for 150 mph, doing 162 mph. The spin just started as he was passing through the timing gates, so he ended up going through them sideways. He spun about 4 times, all 4 wheels on the ground, and managed to not hit a damn thing. Not the timing lights, not a cone, not a marker. He immediately drove back to the pits and then back to tech inspection to make sure nothing had been damaged in the car. Tech passed him again and told him to go get back in line to give it another go, saying "You're new at this, this is how you learn."

They made adjustments to the car, they put the smallest pulley on the super charger as they hadn't realized how much boost it was giving. When he spun out it was giving him 7 lbs. of boost, he was in 4th gear and at 4,000 rpms. They also taped up the grille.

The in car camera shows Andy being a cool cucumber, according to the crew he was just casually looking around while he spun around. *L*

It's all good news and they're back in line to give it another go.

When the pictures of all this are uploaded, they'll be in their photographer Amy Jet's Flickr before they're anywhere else if anyone wants to keep tabs. There's nothing from Bonneville there yet, but there is a number of galleries of the car and crew and work on the car before they left for Bonneville if anyone wants to peruse.

God speed the Stinkin' Linkin from the great city of New Orleans!!

Stinkin' Linkin Update [13 Sep 2007|02:14am]

[ mood | chipper ]

I actually talked (as opposed to text msg) to Andy this afternoon as he stood in line to get licensed to proceed with the short track trials in the SL.

In case you didn't know, they actually DROVE the car out there, it wasn't towed on a trailer. They drove it the 2,000 miles. In 48 hours. With no sleep because the crazy bastards didn't give themselves enough time to get out there and actually stop along the way with all the adjustments they had to make to the Lincoln on the way out there. Andy says it was one of the most painful and exhilarating experiences of his life.

He says they are getting lots of support from the Bonneville staff and other teams, everyone thinks the project is an awesome idea and are being supportive and helpful.

They passed the tech inspection, which means they are cleared to race the 3 short track trials.

They run 3 trials on the short track, building up to around 175 mph. The 4th and last trial on the long track, the big one, the 200 mph and over one, can only be attempted if they make it through all 3 short track trials.

The short track is 3 miles long. Andy has to get it up to speed by the 2 mile marker, and keep his speed for a 1/4 mile, that's where they record the top speed in each trial.

From what he told me, the first short trial his recorded speed has to be between 100-125 mph, the 2nd between 125-150 mph and the 3rd between 150-175 mph.

If they make it through all 3 short track trials, they move on to the long track. The long track is 6 miles long. The car has to get up to as far above 200 mph as it can and hold steady before the 4th mile mark, and stay that way for a full MILE. That's where they record the speed in the long trial. That leaves the engine wide open for a full 18 seconds.

KEEP YOUR FINGERS CROSSED EVERYBODY!! :)

If everything goes smoothly, they should be running the long track on Friday.

I'll post updates as he calls, they're busy bees.

For the Fourth, THE GRILL IS BACK!!

That's right ladies and gents, for one eve only the infamous Flanagan's sidewalk grill will be back in business because the Fourth just isn't the Fourth without a cook out. :)

Hot Grill Ready For Meat @ 7 p.m.

Come eat up some burgers, dogs and chops and imbibe in a few cool brews or cocktails as well.

Come early because when the meat is gone, we're done!!

The food will be FREE, but we are asking for donations to build an ark of a care package for Louisiana Soldiers in Iraq. Regardless of whether you support the war or not, those soldier boys could use a little homegrown love. :)

Red, White & Blue Drink Special - $3
