Oh dear...sorry about that.
thanks John that's the correct link the other is a rather sad crash of a minivan...
Yes the funding is a real concern. Its strange how £100's of millions can be found for a government campaign (such as 'your paper work might change if we leave the EU' that was on all the motorway signs) yet we cant fund an engineering project like Bloodhound.
The oil pressure relief valve on the Triumphs is fixed. Adjustable only by spring strength.
Adjustable could be done by a hollow screw & tapped into oil PRV block?
Has anybody marketed a temperature controlled one? I would love to have one that reduced the oil pressure to maximum of say 50 PSI @ < 60C?

That it continues to push the boundaries is due to Ian Warhurst, a Yorkshire businessman who has funded the cash-strapped project from his own pocket. If there was ever a worthwhile endeavour ...
They were also relatively expensive.. a decent freezer in the '50s or '60s was probably in the order of a months' wage, not including the cost of the electricity to run it. It would have been a big investment and you'd damn well expect it to work for 20 years or more.
Comparatively speaking, modern ones are much cheaper to buy and to run, as well as being more energy efficient to boot... I won't make any attempt to quantify which is the better approach, there are too many factors to consider but I'm just trying to point out that it's not all bad
So what am I going to do with all this wood I have drying and the wood burner?
I can still get GOOD creosote locally just have to say I am trade?(I always buy the thickest and blackest(can we say that now?)
The world has gone a bit PC but will not solve the problems! (we in UK are clean because all our pollution is in China!)
But it makes us feel good but deluded!
Many of the things that last did so because they are now classified as environmentally verboten. Lead in Paint, creosote in timber, asbestos, aminopyralid on grassland, open coal fires, wood burning stoves. Even a petrol engine will outlast an electric cars battery pack, it is a very long list including drugs, food additives, nuclear, Donald Trump..…….
Todays panacea is almost always tomorrows Frankenstein's monster.
Good end of the testing of Bloodhound, 628MPH and that's without the rocket booster.
But it will need additional funding for next years runs. More details below.
