Hey Dave...remember this one?  8) All four wheels off the ground and dragging the bumper!
Wheelie bars? I don't need no stinking wheelie bars!  ;D

An early , but unsuccessful effort at the Red Dragon body launch record.  As time went on Dave improved his trajectory methods.   8)

how much damage from re-entry

The car came down and hit the oil filters on the ground and caused a flash of fire. It also put flat spots on the front wheels. The next race I went to was the 64 car show in Seattle where I beat McCullogh first round with a 6.54 that stood as the 4th quickest time of the event. I won 2nd round as well but can't remember over who. That car was sold to Tony Lewis of El Paso TX and I built the ilfated Firebird for 1978.

It wasn't so much trajectory as the realization that the body would go higher without having to take the chassis with it. True innovation!

I wondered about those oil filters...they looked in harm's way.
