Take a Ride in TURBINATOR II
TURBINATOR II's two test runs during Speed Week 2013 provided a wealth of information through the new RacePak data system and the expertise of Ron Armstrong.The front and rear onboard cameras also produced video clips that will guide Team Vesco in perfecting systems in the car. We were pleased with the operation of the new brakes, new electronics, turbine horsepower and body design. Rick Vesco and the MTT turbine experts will work on the fuel delivery next. Team Vesco is very pleased with TURBINATOR II's performance and abilities. We will soon return to the salt. Project 500 mph is a GO!
