To set a record at Bonneville I need to make two passes one in each direction then the two speeds are averaged.
The track is five miles long. First mile is to get the engine warm and into sixth gear. About 100 mph.When I hit the second mile I start to spray the nitrous . When I go through the third mile ,I enter the first measured mile. I need to hold my tuck and watch the fuel mixture and exhaust temp. Then I hit the second measured mile I do the same . Then a mile to slow and stop. If that goes well I go to impound and turn it around refuel new plugs and refill the bottle and do it again.
Its five miles of spray total, but not all at once. About two or two and a half miles of spray.
They don't measure top speed . They measure the time it takes to cover a mile.sorry for the confusion.
