    I am not worthy....That is the most stable car I have ever seen. I have a lot to learn from him.

    Please tell us how....Thanks and Congrats.

      Man that was smooth. If you didn't know better you would think he wasn't even moving. It was smoother than my 70mph ride to work in my Pontiac.
      It's not the destination, but the journey and the friends you make along the way that counts.

        That's unbelievable! Did you notice the car's radio? He started his run at 1:43 pm and shut the car off at 1:44 pm, then pulled the chute. That's cool!

          That is incredible! You'd think he was on a five mile stretch of freshly paved interstate or something. That's what I call smoooooooth! ;D

              When I showed Ed the video this morning, even he was surprised by how smooth he was. This car has been raced at Bonneville for 15 years, but is a stock bodied C4. They are not known for being the most stable platform at such speeds, but Ed's is weighted and sorted real well. Plus, the salt is sooooo smooth you wouldn't believe it. These are the best salt conditions in the history of ever. No matter what the conditions, the fact that Ed's procedure is so perfect, and his driving is so smooth is a testament to his driving skill. Major kudos to Ed.

                    Nice run Ed...now if you can only get it to turn left and right....
                    Good to have the motor stay together this year.

                          Ed... after reviewing the Film and Data... we've decided you don't need a Lic anymore.... that thing is just like a street car...

                          Hmmmm unless you folks don't get it.... Bonneville ain't like that....
                          The rest of us have to Drive!!!
