The accumulator is scratched on the inside so I need to make another one. I'll redesign it so the next run will be with another design.

Nic hasnt said anything yet

I don't know man, that 163MPH pass doesnt look any faster than the other 3 passes. That is why i asked, to bad you didnt get in another good pass around that 163 MPH mark.

When will you get the car up and running again?

Miami video's can be decieving with regards to the true speed of an object which is why Ziggy set up the speed traps to validate his speeds.

Miami, Ziggy has his speed trap to validate his speed not just a video or a radar gun.
I know he has a speed trap, i saw that very clearly its just to me that 4th video the car doesnt look any faster than the other 3 runs??? i know for a fact im not the only one thinking the same thing. I completely agree that the car was in the tripple digits infact the second and third passes where very similar in speed. I just wish the car could have pulled another 160+MPH pass to make sure everything was working correctly.

Speed traps,GPS, RADAR guns can all fail, ive pointed radar guns at tree's and the radar has read the tree was doing 40 MPH, ive radar cars that are FLYING down the street pulling tripple digits and radar guns have read 10 MPH, there is always room for error this is why i like to make MANY PASSES to get a good average.

Just the other day i put a GPS into my gas outrigger, GPS is suppostly the most accurate thing on the market right??? well when i got the GPS back from running it around the lake it read i was doing 1,312 MPH........... thats what MACH 2???

Im not trying to start anything on here, i completely agree the car was doing tripple digits, but i don't see 163 MPH a accurate number unless there is a second pass around the same speed.

Either way congrats on geting the car RUNNING and holding is line, it looks like a real handfull geting it out of the hole.

You and the Serpent King are the Sultans of speed you guys know what you are doing and you are right it is best to back up you record setting runs with a couple of passes.

Thats exactly what im trying to get at.

Not to highjack the thread but here is a video of my gas outrigger on the lake doing a few passes with the GPS in it, im topping out between 70-75 MPH and when we got the GPS back to shore it read 1,312 MPH.......

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yNkYFubj3wM



Does that video look like 1,312 MPH to you?!??!

There is always room for error no matter what speed caculating system your using......a second run in the 160+ MPH range is needed in order for ziggy to really call it offical.

Ziggy did anything break on the car??? if not take it back out and make that second pass!

Hi

When I see the video footage of the run it looks much slower than the actual run. This has been back up by everybody who was there. I dont think that anybody who actually saw the run have any doubt of the speed, however there are a number of nay sayers on the web who have bought this up so now I have proven the system my plan is to do another run with 2 speed traps, a radar gun and 2 gps installed and do at least 2 runs in the 170mph range with full unbroken video of the runs, the speed trap read outs, the radar gun read outs and the GPS read outs.

I will do the same thing with the upgraded rocket when I break the 200mph mark early next year.

For now I am happy with the speed registered on the speed trap as it was check about 50 times during the day against at least 2 other radar guns. The 163.51mph run was back up by the static radar gun that read 159mph. This was reading 5mph less than the speed trap all day.

ROSSA recognises the run of 163.51 mph by A J Lovering on 13th September 2009 as the fastest speed for a remote controlled car.

Congratulations, very impressive. Not just beat it, but smashed it. [sm=thumbup.gif]

I'm really sorry I had to remove vid, unfortunately people were swearing in it. If you disable audio it'll be fine.

It's funny how "ROSSA" reconize's your car as the "fastest" im sure the fact YOU started ROSSA has nothing to do with it........

Not to mention that according to YOUR OWN RULES you stated on you site you need atleast 2 PASSES.

Timing device failure
If the primary or secondary timing device fails the event can continue with a single device. Contestants must make a minimum of 2 runs with a correlation between the 2 run of 3% or less. The faster of the 2 runs is the accepted speed
Bending the rules for your self isnt very sportsman like. Im sorry but i don't belive your car to be the fastest RC on the planet but by all means take the car out again make a few more passes at 160+ MPH and prove me and everyone else who douts your results.

PS: And another thing i just rember'd didn't NIC CASE pull 160 plus MPH on his electric car in the first ever RC event but then could not back it up becuase the car smashed into a wall and was destroy'd ??? If his ONE 160+ MPH pass could not count as offical and he had to settle on 134MPH speed from his second car..........i think the same should apply to you.

Where's the video? I wanna see it. Where is it? Someone PM it to me. Hurry, Hurry, Hurry, Hurry. I wanna see what all the hype is about.

Yes, Nic did run 160+ a couple of years ago and smashed the car, so it was neve made official because he didnt make a back up pass so the 134 stuck on the other car. We either always run a second pass to make sure of use 2 radar guns to make it as official as possible.

WOW, I dont believe im in the nitro forum. Wait, if the car was rocket powered, why are we discussing it in here?

PS, Finest. Congrats on the 1300 MPH pass.

OK, next time you get pulled over by the police for speeding in your car, ask them 'can't I just hang a sign on the back saying I'm a danger on the road?'...

See my point? Rules are rules, I don't make em.

Are you kidding? I hope you accidentally posted the wrong one, the first word on the audio is the F word. You can disable the audio you know. Please try to check what you're posting. Thanks.
