Andy Green’s Diary – April 2018

After several months of sitting on its runway wheels, BLOODHOUND SSC is now back up on blocks, with the wheels and brakes removed and stripped down, as we prepare to fit the desert running gear.

There are 2 bits of good news from stripping down the Car’s runway suspension. The technical good news is that everything has worked exactly as we expected, easily coping with extremes of temperature (up to 1000 deg C for the carbon disc brakes) and high loads (several tonnes through each of the ‘pull rods’ that connect the suspension uprights to the coil-and damper units).
