This brings to mind memories of Rick at El Mirage towing the tag engine with
NT2to make it into "G". Not a pretty memory. But it wasn't the five wheels
that caused the dissent. That was OK.

It is my understanding that they are running on a paved runway at Edwards
today. Certainly a better surface for rolling resistance than the Bonneville
or the playa at ElMirage. Mike Cook is there
I have a funny mental image just keeps coming back: a Jack Costella,
steam powered streamliner towing a water tank trailer at Bonneville.
Could that be the configuration for a future American steam powered record
attempt? Do the rules specify how many wheels?
