I'm gonna keep this kinda short and let the pictures do the talkin because there really is too much to talk about.
We took the Crow to bonneville with a new intake and carb to try and grab the open record for the fuel class. We ran a different blower with methanol.
Here's the result of 6 lbs of boost and a broken ring landing. haha. Prety ain't she?
But despite the blown piston we had a great time and as usual met some great people, even other tank people:
And even though we killed a piston, it could have been a lot worse, here is a picture of Roy Creel's motor from the same meet:
I guess he spun a bearing, broke a rod, and sawed the motor in half. Ouch. But I'm sure he was going faster than me when it happened. He always does.
