I love seeing guys push but this scares me. A single drive with that kind of torque going through it, single skeg being side loaded to the extreme, and an 8000 rpm motor on exotic fuel for a full 3/4 mile pass "what could go wrong"--I hope he makes one pass gets his number and stops. He has the class totally covered and if something does go bad, those are not "walk away" speeds. I remember talking to him after his run last year and asked him what he was thinking lol...

Good luck Tyler,

Joe

I'll be there, be safe, that is a lot of power to be pushing the limits of everything that rotates !

i,m hoping injecting nitromethane is a misprint and you mean nitrousoxide..... tyler is the guy i have been waiting for to put a full blown nitro engine in and shatter a few records those nitro hydro boys are over 270 in the quarter now one engine 2 counter rotating props took care of the torque problem and allowed much better acceleration

It sounded odd to me as well but I double-checked with Tyler Crockett and he said "nitromethane." I will check again.

if he is indeed going to inject Nitro during the run please put some gopros in the engine room especialy ones that do the superslow motion of the blower launching into orbit
