After almost two years sourcing/waiting for tires they are here!


I also am finishing mounting all the accesories onto the engine before I drop it back in.



Also spent a few hours unraveling the mystery of the universe in wire form... Sure am glad I printed all 1400 pages of the factory service manual to help decipher it.

You are, by far, the most worthwhile person to follow on these forums. That cage is incredible.

How are those tires going to hook on the sand?

Tread doesn't help get traction there. The salt is like a bunch of fine crystals on top of a soft clay base. The traction is like loose gravel really. Also at 240+ mph you don't want alot of tread because that much rubber is alot of rotating weight which would pull the tire apart.

The tires are narrow because at high speeds a wider tire almost "hydroplanes" on the air.

Have everything I need but time. It has sat in the enclosed racing trailer for almost 2 years now without being touched. With Bonneville being not going off the last few years for salt conditions I have not had a lot of motivation for this. They did run this year though so maybe I should put it together for next year.... hmmm.
