Not exactly high tech, but nevertheless effective.  Curtiss Instruments kindly supplied the controller used for testing purposes, along with contactors and technical support.  The steering wheel was offset to a modified standard rack via a chain drive.  Care had to be taken when installing to remember to cross the chain.  Otherwise the steering had a reverse action, which took some getting used to.  During an event at the London Arena in 1996 there was no time to disassemble an incorrectly set up chain.  The driver had to be hastily instructed in the art of driving with hands crossed.  Amazingly, it worked out.  The car passed between tables of diners through a CO2 cloud, up a ramp and onto a rotating display stand - in a corrected straight line.  Nicely done Don!

At time of writing BE3 has no corporate instrument sponsor.  If your company would like to offer support to the BE3 project, we would like to hear from you.

The world's fastest electric land speed record car, a blue bird eco streamliner

 

If your land speed record car cannot refuel itself like this, you are at a huge disadvantage. Blueplanet is around 66% the weight of a car that does not have cartridge exchange refueling for the same performance.

 Bluebird cvt electric car transmissions  Blueplanet has inbuilt battery loaders. It does not need a  Bluebird electric motor bird logo  

complicated service station to refuel itself in under 2 minutes.
