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
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.
In a world record, SHROX took the down-hill luge one step further:
A custom built paved downhill slope of 20%! Yes folks, it AIN'T pretty!
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!

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...
