Brake disc spin test

Getting to 1,000 mph is relatively easy, slowing down safely before you run out of desert is much more of a challenge. 
 
At 1,000 mph there will be 15 tonnes of drag pushing against the car.
When the jet and rocket engines are switched off BLOODHOUND will rapidly decelerate to 800 mph at which point the air brakes will start to be deployed. They will open out into the airflow and maintain 3G deceleration (the equivalent of you going from 60 mph - 0 in one second - for 20 seconds).

BLOODHOUND SSC takes shape

Conor La Grue's March blog

It’s late in February as I write this update and the year is off to a flying start. The continued design release, manufacture and assembly of the components for BLOODHOUND SSC is progressing at great pace.

The titanium skins for the rear upper chassis crown sections are in place. The panel drill-off is starting to happen well ahead of schedule, which is great news.
