2014 Bodrodz Speed Challenge

SPEED RUN RESULTS

This is the place to post any test run results that you want, which could ultimately be your top speed in the end. NO road names or specific locations. Keep it simple, maybe average grade and length of run. Any video links would be great.

Good luck and be safe.

Just a little info on what the 2014 Bodrodz Need For Speed Challenge is all about.  This is a friendly little competition about going fast.  Basically, running under S.U.C.K.E.R. rules this year.  These rules allow cars up to 9 ft. and 500 lbs.  To enter,  video verification of onboard GPS of you going fast, no exceptions.  Speed entries will end July 31 midnight. Trophies for the top 3 MPH's.

 If anybody is even thinking about running, please leave a comment and I'll put you on the entry list. This challenge is not all about just being the fastest. It's about making a run or runs and creating a baseline and showing the gravity world your improvements or disappointments. What works and what doesn't. This Speed Challenge is just like speed week at the Bonneville Salt Flats, granted there is competition between other cars, however, it's a lot about you improving your machine. But first and foremost is SAFTEY. In the past few years the gravity world has seen the MPH of the cars increase significantly starting on the West Coast with others following. Always safety first before, during, and after your quest for speed. Good luck to all.

S.U.C.K.E.R.s Car Construction rules can be found here:

http://home.earthlink.net/~gravityracer/rules.htm





Please note, S.U.C.K.E.R.s car Construction rules do NOT mandate any driver safety rules.  Other groups do!  Some require roll over/crash protection, a 5 point driver harness, arm restraints, specific helmet requirements, gloves, detachable steering wheels, etc..

 

Driver safety should be your number ONE priority for the Ultimate Speed Challenge!

 

If you are just beginning construction of your car, we highly recommend that you check to see what other groups require in their rules regarding driver safety and that you build to a much higher standard!

 

Building driver safety into your car will assure that after all your time, effort and money, your cars is eligible to run in any group in the country without needing further modifications, changes or upgrades.

 NUDRS will be building a high speed cart for this competition. However, due to the abundant number of projects in line already, there is a good chance it will not begin before the July 31st deadline.

2014 Ultimate Speed Challenge UPDATE: Video Process

GPS and video verification process will be as follows to verify top speed attempts and postings.

1. Video will run 30 seconds before run and 30 seconds after run and speed verification after run with absolutely NO breaks in video footage.

2. Driver will verify GPS has top MPH zero'd before run and MUST be readable in plain view of camera.

...3. Driver at end of run will show top MPH on GPS after run in plain view of camera and MUST be readable.

4. GPS will never leave the view of camera from time video is started 30 seconds before run to 30 seconds after run and MPH verification.

Failure to follow these rules will disqualify any speed postings or records in the 2014 Ultimate Speed Challenge. Absolutely no exceptions.

Speeds posted before June 1 2014 will stand. Good luck and ride safe.

2014 Ultimate Speed Challenge UPDATE:

Upon review of Fast Donnie's record run and those runs posted , the run has been thrown out. While reviewing the video, the in car GPS and the GPS showing MPH are not the same. Note GPS dimensions..., color, and logos and break in video. Record run is invalid. Other runs that day by S.U.C.K.E.R. group will have to meet video rules posted June 1 2014 or speed postings will be disqualified and not recognized. See video.

 Where the rules changed after those runs were made?  Just curious as some of the facebook comments I am reading. 

Actually as I understand it, this was not going to be a record attempt.  It was just their normal regular race day.  As such they weren't really prepared or thinking about the rules and guidelines posted for the record attempt.  As a result there isn't proper video documentation to back up the claims.

This doesn't mean they didn't post those speeds.  It only means the speeds on that run can't be used as an attempt at the record.

So, am I correct, as things stand at this point, with only 26 days left on the calendar to do this, there have been no "official" attempts submitted?
