Matt rode a few fully-faired laps at speeds in the 52-53 mph range.
However, he found the vehicle was not tracking properly due to a misalignment between the front and rear wheels.
This affected the stability and handling of the vehicle, precluding any attempts at HPVA records or the Dempsey-MacCready Hour Prize. The necessary repairs were too substantial to be quickly made at the track.
Matt has returned home and plans to run for the record later in 2000.
