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.
