Nanotec-USA Sponsors the Nish
Motor Sports Royal Purple Streamliner
Nanotec-USA and John Moore have delivered and installed state of the art NanoBionic Technology. Nanotec-USA ranks among
one of the first enterprises in the United States with a range of "TRUE" Nanotechnology Products. The self-assembling
Nano-particles dock directly to the molecules of paint and metal within the pores of the material. After assembly, the NanoBionics
Smart Particles/molecules self-align themselves forming new structures.
In June of 2008, John Moore, President
and CEO, Nanotec-USA personally flew out to the Nish Motorsports facility in Salt Lake City, Utah to apply his company's NanoBionics
treatments. The surfaces treated include: the interior and exterior painted surfaces, stainless steel, aluminum and the polycarbonate
windshield. Talking with the Terry and Mike Nish, it was agreed Mr. Moore would treat the inside of the large fresh air intake
snorkel to increase the flow of air. The interior surfaces of the custom made stainless steel velocity stacks were also treated
to increase the air flow and better channel the air.
Bionic Nanotechnology is the domain of ultimate engineering,
where chemistry, physics and mechanical design converge on a molecular scale. This new Technology will give the Streamliner
a new aerodynamic advantage and will reduce drag, not to mention making all the surfaces much easier to keep clean. Crew Chief
Cecil McCray has this to say about Nano-Technology, “This stuff is amazing and we have high expectations of the Nanotec-USA
Products and what they can do for not only the performance of the car but the appearance as well. The streamliner is going
to get through the air better and just a little soap and water will keep it looking good. We’ve tested it and it works
2008: AUGUST 18TH -24TH.
BONNEVILLE SALT FLATS, USA
Nish Motorsports and
the Royal Purple Streamliner are awarded the Legendary “Hot Rod Magazine Top Speed Award”, for the third time,
at the SCTA/BNI sanctioned Speedweek event at the Bonneville Salt Flats held August 18th thru the 24th, 2008. Nish Motorsports
driver Mike Nish made one run of 371.080 Miles Per Hour and had an exit speed of 377.102 Miles Per Hour.
|The course was a little
wet in the first few miles and Mike Nish had a hard time getting traction. Wheel Spin definitely affected the time between
the 2 mile and 2 ¼ mile clocks. “We were off about 15 miles an hour in the ¼ mile time, but when the car
hooked up, it was a rocket. Usually the slow time in the quarter mile clocks relates directly to the terminal speed, but the
exit speed was only off by a couple of miles per hour. I can only attribute this to a great racecar designed by my Father
Terry Nish and a good 596 C.I. engine built by Tom Klein. We expected the time to be a little slower because we cut the Nitro
Methane back from 20% to 10%. Between the 3 and 4 mile clocks the car picked up almost 37 Miles Per Hour. This is extremely
good and I would have to guess that the new state of the art NanoBionic Technology done by John Moore of Nanotec-USA had something to do with that.
”, said driver Mike Nish.|
|Owner Terry Nish decided not to make another run during
Speedweek and save the engine as a back-up for the next event which is the F.I.A. World Record Attempt, scheduled for September
22nd thru the 25th, 2008. Terry went on to say what an honor it is to receive the Legendary Hot Rod Magazine Top Speed Award
in its 60th Year. This is the third time we have been able to achieve this honor and it is not taken lightly. It is an honor
to have the Nish Motorsports name associated with all the great names in Landspeed Racing.|
Terry went on to thank
all of their sponsors for helping make the record attempts possible. Full story: SpeedWeek2008
