We will be there when you attempt the record 100%

I didn't see the ATO logo on the side Rosco. lol. Bet you loved Four Corners this week. Onwards and upwards mate. Can't wait for that record to be yours.

When is thing going to run?

Early signs say bloodhound will be ready to be tested October desert ready test speeds estimated 500 mile an hour the race is on!!!

Great to see Aussie companies sharing the vision.

what is the 111 with the rabbit ?

You guys really are an aussie inspiration of never say die attitude . .. I grew up down the road from rosco and really hope you guys get the record you deserve it. Great to see people sponsor real dreams! Go you good thing !

Great stuff. We should all support the companies that support this great Aussie effort!

Coming together beautifully!

Can we still get our names on the car?

Wow, professional workmanship and supporters!

Itโ€™s ok , but where do you put the luggage ??

It looks fast just sitting there.

Well done mate looks good

Looks great Ros, coming along nicely

Rad guys so cool ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜Ž

Looks awesome!

Will your team be able to achieve what spirit of America couldn't. Get ready boys the Brits are coming good luck everyone..........

Nice piece on a famous car and legendary racer.

Strange Inheritance
More than 20 years after legendary drag racer Mickey Thompson was gunned down, his son Danny Thompson inherited the โ€œChallenger IIโ€ and is driven to capture the world land speed record in his dadโ€™s old car.

In 2016, Danny clocked an average speed of 406.7 mph driving 'Challenger II', just a hair faster than his fatherโ€™s time back in 1960, and making him one of only a dozen racers to break 400 mph in a piston-powered car. fxn.ws/2GtBjJy

Is this the previous bloodhound project? achieving 1000kmph? ๐Ÿ™‚

Have you done low-level speed test yet will you be in time for the challenge against the bloodhound ?

Looks great, when do you run?

Look out battery boy is coming after you, just ask him how good he is.......Mind you I haven't seen anything more than a chassis yet ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

Thatโ€™s a proper looking land speed car. Or is it a bike? 3 or 4 wheel?

I all so have this photo I got it for the man who took this photo i was there that day what a historic day

That has got to be my favorite car picture of all time! And Andy Green is one cool customer behind the wheel. And, he's not done yet!

I have a lot of time for the fact that Aussie Invader and Bloodhound have respect for each other. I hope both teams have a chance to run the cars competitively and both manage to break the current record and the sound barrier decisively....then there'll be some real competition!

Once machined a set of disc brakes for a project called thrust ssc back in 93/94, years later discovered this was the job.

Love the image - can't wait to see aussie invader's go rosco

Coming together nicely; an amazing achievement. Given the forces involved and the extreme vibration environment presumably the automotive electrics are for proving purposes only and that the final version will lean more on aerospace techniques and components? I fear the stuff in the photos is just going to come apart. Best wishes to the team.

Looking good. When will it have some public outings? (After the gp)

Honestly does it secretly scare the hell out of you thinking about the day you commit to the run in this and flick the switch to ignite the rocket engine?

I have no doubt that Rosco an his team know what they are doing. All you doubters I suggest if you feel you can do better don't sling shit. Get off your arses and do what they have done

AI5R looks awesome!!

Looking good Rosco, what % still to do? Do you still plan to run with rear wheels un faired?

Wish I was there good luck

Cant wait 2 c it smash the record rossco well done

Wouldn't it be great to have it and bloodhound together

Do you have an eta on when the car will be completed?

Will you beat us Poms?

Donโ€™t underestimate the risks of getting to Mach 1 and then continuing to 1000mph. The current record holder Thrust SSC created a few surprises even though it was analysed on a Super Computer validated by a model fired along a monorail by air to air missiles. The Chief aerodynamist, Ron Ayes, designed the Bloodhound ground to air missile.

Yep KISS is cool.

Looking gorgeous. In other News, some great comments here, how about assisting with a 'Donation'!

Canโ€™t wait to see it run, hopefully in Australia. Iโ€™ll be there.

I can't wait for the land speed to be broken.I wished I could see it live like in 1997.

Cant wait u got this rossco

Wow Rosco Congratulations team Good luck looks like a winner wahoo ๐Ÿ‘

Itโ€™s a stunner Rosco!

At speed will the nose drop..or the entire vehicle?

Looks awesome but were have i see this before? o thats right....blue flame.

Ricky Smith once said he make a two bedroom house . A winner with enough horse power .

Looking forward to watching this from the UK. What a fine looking machine. Great achievement guys

Truly great work!

Roscoe, Mike and I will volunteer to ride along as ballast, if you need us!!!

This looks very fast โ€˜ compared too other monstrous vehicle.

Come on Rosco itโ€™s time to put your foot down.

Gets more impressive by the day Rosco. Keep up the good work.

So does this mean it's ready?

An internet provider should sponsor you. They're always boasting about their "high speed". Great Job Team Aussie Invader! (Y)

Good luck reading that at 1000mph

So much work that most would never appreciate. If each of those operations took say 10 seconds (I know it was probably more), that is nearly 23 hrs at very conservative estimate. Most likely 100 hrs or more work there. Then there's the cost of the drill bits, screws & lock nuts. While time is a precious commodity which we can't readily contribute, $ can be. If you have not already contributed to the gofundme campaign, please go to www.gofundme.com/aussieinvaderlaunch. If you are reading Rosco's posts you are obviously interested in this awesome project so please show your support in this most practical way.

Amazing effort, had to do about 50 rivnuts in a recent job and that was enough for me!

Labor intensive but for a good reason

Aaahh those small jobs, most people dont think much about.

Woe look at her beautiful

One of the major compelling reasons for a team to pursue the land speed record, is that in the pursuit you will encounter and work with so many people with different background experiences and skills. Whereas the goal of setting a any record is somewhat speculative, or hopeful, the people who assist and partner bring real tangible benefits to everyone involved, and to an even greater extent, to those of us who follow along. Part of the benefit of the process of creating a land speed vehicle is how difficult problems get resolved, one's the average person might never consider, but in principle may actually encounter in their work. And that's important. Doing a fantastic job, such as creating stunning computer renderings that faithfully represent a real vehicle under development demonstrates several key benefits. It draws attention to the value of skilled workmanship. It shows how important communication skills are. It validates the role of individual contributions that make a significant difference. It highlights the opportunity to use these skills and showcase them to a world wide audience. It serves to encourage others to venture into the world of land speed racing at some appropriate level, whatever your area of interest may be. And of course, This all demonstrates how appreciative and reliant, Roscoe, and his amazing team are on others, who share the vision, and then act on it. The act of attempting to "inspire" people is only an entertainment, if action, on even the smallest scale, is not engaged. Clint, thank you for your amazing work, and for contributing to this great project. Your talent is not being wasted, or unappreciated.

Great work Clint

So good in the photos cannot wait to see it go. Brings back memories of when you had the first one champ as a kid.

Looks a top job. If I were building a LSR challenger, this is exactly the way I'd do it. Much as I admire the bloodhound guys engineering skills, I can't help thinking that an F1 engine, a jet, an afterburner and a rocket motor is overkill. All the weight you add, you lose power dragging it along. That and the complexity. Simple, powerful and light weight is the key. As long as you have the stability of course, and you can get that with the aero design. Good luck, and stay safe. (y)

Good stuff. And look how simple it can be to put together. Keep it simple always the best way. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿฝ love your work.

Im sure you will be able to read it fine... little bumpy but fine. If your travelling at the same speed as an object it will be in focus.

Go prove them all wrong Rosco !!!!!!!!! at 1000 mph in 20 seconds Rosco isnt going to get time to look at it

I wouldn't trust that hardware at 1000mph....

Excellent but donโ€™t know how you will read it at those speeds

I worry about vibration damping generally, cables, readouts, connections. EXTREME environment.
