450mph Land Speed Record Project

at 11:45 pm. Filed under Insane Equipment, What Were They Thinking

 

This project will get funded at $200,000. They are hoping to get it flying across the ground at 450mph! With dual 2000 horse power engines it has tons of power to get the job done. Good luck on Danny Thompson continuing what his father Mickey Thompson started.

More Details

Streamliner Facts:

  • The skin of the car is made-up entirely of 68 hand formed aluminum panels. They are connected to the subframe via simple Dzus buttons.
  • The streamliner has two engines, one on either side of the cockpit. The original 1960s setup delivered nearly 1800hp. Our new engines provide close to 4000hp.
  • The engines are dry blocks (waterless), which means all of the cooling is provided by the fuel. A single run will consume approximately 50 gallons of nitro blend fuel.
  • The car ends its runs nearly 500 pounds lighter due to fuel consumption.
  • The tires are a prototype nylon weave backed with banded steel. There is only 1/32 of an inch of rubber. Any more would spin off due to heat and expansion. They are custom made by Mickey Thompson Tires.
  • Primary stopping power is provided by dual parachutes that deploy four foot blossoms. We also have four carbon fiber disk brakes just in case.”
