Just got off the phone with NRE. The SST engine is on the dyno ready to go.

I will be out there Monday and then we are going to turn (I like this phrase) "the boost up into the stratosphere"... Looking forward to that.

Also during this week the whole team is working like crazy on the rest of the SST. The tranny/drivetrain is being coated in the same stuff as the engine. The whole undercarriage is being painted satin black (sorry, the factory olive green primer looked kinda dull) as well as detailing the whole suspension. Many other details are being attended to.

The SST WILL be at C5Fest2.

...and you've probably seen it but this is the race helmet.
Good Luck - I am pulling for you

Hopefully we do not have to see the undercarriage at C5Fest2 (i.e. Don't want to be working UNDER the SST) No broken parts !!

Hey Bruce we can put all the naysayers to rest if you want me to meet you in Chatsworth with my camera. LOL Don't forget to bring your potassium iodide... the SST has been powder coated with the Japanese fallout dust. The engine is glowing even at idle. Good news is you dont have to refuel for 18,000 years.

speedster, you are a far more patient person than I am.

I'm really looking forward to seeing/hearing your car, but I'm sure no one is more anxious for that than you are.
