List,

Looking for help with a project to be run at the Bonneville Salt Flats
during speedweek 2001. We are a 10 year veteran team at Bonneville, and
this is a new project to be ran this year.
Going after 650cc records in the class MPS-F (Modified Partial
Streamlined - Fuel) of 168 mph held by Scott Guthrie.
To attain a record on the Salt, you have to maintain an average speed
over a course of 3 miles, these ARE NOT peak velocities. You must
sustain your speed for a flying mile then if you qualify for the record
(which is beat the exsisting record) you must back that run up with
another run for the same flying mile, then the average of these two is
your actuall speed and must exceed the current record.
The base of the project is a Nitrous Oxide Injected 1992 Kawasaki 600D.
Aftermarket ZX12R body work has been fitted for that aerodyamic edge. A
Schnitz (Top Gas) progressive nitrous oxide box is being installed and
will control the ignition and nitrous.

If anybody is interested please visit the following site.

Actually I am really glad I joined this board, such an active forum for all types of racing
and manufactures forums. Looks like alot of neat people and lists to join in on.


thanks,
Jonathan Amo

Nice to have you here. It's a fun site.

Good luck with the record, let us know how it's developing. When are you all planning on making the first attempt?

First Runs

Rob,

The first attempts are going to make in August 2001 11-17th on the Bonneville Salt Flats.
Which is located 90 miles west of Salt Lake City in a town on the border of Nevada/Utah
on interstate 80 called Wendover.

Thanks for the kind words about the site.

If you want to send me a write-up on the attempt I'd be more than happy to post it in our "News and Rumors" section which is also shown on our front page.

P.S. Go Team Green!

If you wanted the aerodynamic edge, you should have used
a Hyabusa for your bodywork.......that is why it is the fastest
production bike as it is more aerodynamic than the ZX12R even
though the 12R has more HP.....

just a thought....

Suzuki GSXR 600cc track bike. Penske shock, Ohlins steering dampner, Lindemann forks, Sharkskinz body work, Full Yoshimura RS-3 Titainium / carbon fiber exaust system, Yosh digital tach with built in temp gauge, Yosh clip-ons, WRM rearsets to name a few. Motor was built and tuned by G-force racing engines.
