Damn, that looks like fun!
Since I stopped playing puck I've been looking for a good *safe* sport to enjoy. Then again, maybe not.

What, no rocket motors on those? :) Just kidding, it sounds like you don't need em. If I was down there I'd shoot the hill with you. I used to do it the old fashioned way, before the street luge was invented. On a longboard, flat on my back, no protective gear, arms crossed over my chest. We called it the coffin.
Speedy recovery.

AND everybody thought I WAS NUTS!! GEEZ!! I would at least try to hit 70 mph on one of those.
Like Mike Fisher said, "No rocket motors?"
I bet Ky could make you go faster by strapping a rocket on it! :-)
Have a speedy recovery dude! No pun intended.

Ouch, my sympathy dude. Maybe you should consider getting your adrenaline rush doing something a little safer, like drag racing. ;-)

Gotcher mug on the news spot. Newsman called you "Shrok" at first though. He mentioned you were a computer animator... too bad he didn't mention rocket designer too... maybe that topic would be too interferring with the current streetluge topic... oh well.
Looks fun; stay well, and make more rockets.

Hey Shrox, forget about those curves, look for straightline speed. Alittle downforce maybe a baby M and you'll be honking down the straightaways like this guy. I like the pic where he told his wife he would stop after 4 rockets. Hah!

Chuck RudyThey never once mention Aerotech. Anybody can tell those are G64's. Another question, why does he have the ejection charges installed. Brakes after 10 seconds of speed?

Been there, done that. Well, actually, I strapped 9 plugged E's on it, but then I never got around to getting the batteries set up. I'll do that after I heal up...
