Bonneville Salt Flats, Utah. 178058. 2-2:30pm Sun.
Since we couldn’t find a suspension shop open on Sundays, we set up an appointment with a shop on Monday. In the meantime, we unloaded the Jetta at our hotel and stowed our 16 cubes of veggie oil in the hotel room. That freed up the weight to let us spend a day in the area of SLC and do some sightseeing. We thought it might be nice to test out the raw WVO horsepower on the infamous Bonneville Salt Flats.
We were able to break the land speed record for a VO-powered vehicle on the Salt Flats. They clocked us at 164 on the ten-mile straight-away, but our speedo only goes up to 140 (see image). We had to lay off because the valves were floating, but it was still a crazy ride.
