Today’s Featured Sponsors
George Leone and his daughter Talia
Team Member Eric McClain and his boss Eric stopped by
Our guests this weekend included North American Eagle™ Legal Counsel George Leone who came by the hangar to show his daughter Talia the car. Talia lives in LA and is in the motion picture industry. George’s law firm is Citadel Patent Law in Tacoma WA. Team member Eric McClain brought his boss Eric to see the Eagle. Eric (McLain) also drives the Swamp Witch Lakester at Bonneville.
This week we did another functional test on the steering system and everyone declared success. Somehow Lars pulled short straw and had the duty of bleeding the hydraulics. In the old days the one performing the job ended up with an oil shower, but with new improvements hardly a drop is lost.
RS Hughes company from Seattle gave us a great deal on some anti-static discharge bags. Cory was packing some of our electronic components this weekend in the new ESD bags. Electronic components are subject to failure if they are not properly protected from static electricity. RS Hughes serves all kinds of industries with quality industrial products.
Steve Wallace simulates ground communication
Steve Rima and Steve Wallace tested the ground and data acquisition system. Steve is building a 2nd Satellite Timing System that will be tested once again at this year’s Bonneville Speed Week. When completed, the hardened case will be able to be placed in any vehicle and correlate speeds of hundreds of data entries every 0.020 inch out to 8 decimal places! As work progresses we will highlight it here.
