Not boat related, but gotta share with friends.

Bloodhound broke the 500mph barrier, halfway to it's goal of a blistering 1,000 MPH!

Make that 600 now..... 0 to 628 mph in only 50 seconds!

This time you get to go along for the ride. This car makes 600+ mph look EASY:

0 to 628mph / 1010kmh in 50 seconds (5 min 50 sec)



The real fun will be in 2020 as they approach and surpass the sound barrier. Sorry Ford,,,,this car is the REAL Mach 1.

Sorry, not a CAR to me. Gotta tow it with a CAR to where it can run. How does it handle cornering? Where do you put the wife and kids? What happens when the light turns red?
LOL

50 seconds to reach that speed? Now a top fuel dragster or funny car, 0-100 in less than 1 second. 335+MPH in under 3.75 seconds and 1000'. If you've never seen them run in person I would highly recommend it. It is unreal.

I've been hearing this a lot online lately, and it makes no sense. Is this some silly idea being spread around by social media? None of those are definitions of "car". Try putting the family in an Indy CAR or 2-seater sports CAR. Show me a red light anywhere out on that dry lake bed.

They try to fit "CAR" into this tiny, personal definition. There are many type of automobiles cars beyond commercial-built passenger cars.

Try this ...." has a minimum of 4 wheels, rolls on the ground all of the time, is self propelled and carries at least one person". Just because it's a car with limited or specific use doesn't make it any less a car. How does it corner. It's a JET car, not a circuit track racer.

Bob

What happens after 4 seconds? You run out of gears, fuel and RPMs, the motor is done and must be rebuilt before the next race, the spark plugs are toast and the engine just firing off latent heat. You can't even reach 400mph no matter how much distance you are given to accelerate in. This is a competition of top speed, not acceleration. 1-100 mph times are moot.

Seen them and loved them. I use to watch them in Fremont in the late 1960s before they turned the race track grounds in to condos and industrial buildings

Snake and Mongoose, Garlits, Bill Maverick's Little Red Wagon racing Chuck Poole's Chuck Wagon in a full length wheelie race...saw them all. Sometimes progress moves backwards.

Speaking of that race I never forgot, somebody was kind enough to have a film movie camera on hand for one of the runs somewhere. Visual artifacts tell me it was transferred to videotape at some point. Nobody except MAYBE big studios had video recorders back then.

Flashback time! How could any 9-year old forget a race like this. These guys will blow your car's doors off with 2 wheels tied behind their backs :
LITTLE RED WAGON vs CHUCK WAGON (3 min 38 sec)



P.S...Just found out the LRR was totaled and then restored: https://www.hemmings.com/blog/2019/0...-to-the-track/
