Thanks to Hollywood prep'n a great track it was another excellent day out on Constance Bay.

Times were down in the late morning but continued to improve as the day went on. Allot of guys from Quebec made it up which was great to see, a ton of incredible sleds that could have been put in a SLED SHOW - all laying down great times! 080402cool_prv.gif

The pits were again full of wrenchers putting final tweeks to a field of WILD RIDES

The action was furious and the weather other than the odd crosswind was perfect for lay'n down some great speeds. Here's a three shots showing how the winds played HAVOC at times, on the last one I had to barrel roll with the STALKER pod eek.gif

The SDI Mach's were out also including JD' site member speedykirb ( first pic below) and my own personal fav
( last two pics below ), check out the focus on this riders eyes as he approaches the STALKER TriPod at 145+ MPH!!! I believe this SDI Custom runs in the high 140's 146-147? correct me if I'm wrong and let's get his name sent in please with exact year of sled so we can add him to our 120+ MPH Club

Our flag_usa.gif brother'n showed and we finally got a look at Stan's new CPR / Proline built drag sled. So far the Proline end of the sled has been working fine but they aren't pleased with Simmon's CPR, sled just isn't working as it was supposed to after MONSTER $$$$ invested. Stan may have to look to site member HURRICANE for help next, surely he would have come up with a more aerodynamic solution for the dumped exhaust rather than a horizontal pipe stuck directly out the side?? Trucker Stacks would have looked better. "Otherwise" the Sled looks incredible but for the second week in a row it was an effort to squeeze 115+ mph out of it in 660' when it's supposed to be running 150+mph in that distance banghead.gif banghead.gif . We're sure Stan will iron out the bugs before she hits the tar this summer. Great to see all of you again! thumbsup2.gif

He was when he was using some CPR stuff, but after he got away from that and fully concentrated on his own designed parts he beat the NBSSR Full Body record last week - He's set the bar in that class for now

couple were a bit blurry bro but and that was when I wasn't paying attention or when Rebecca was bending over adjusting her boots or whatever L!

will keep improving with time. Didn't use the tripod this last time out so I'm surprised they turned out this well, had to dive for safety there a few times and got showered in ice chips more than a handful of times

Cheers

great pictures. you are obviously using a high shutter speed to stop the action, don't need a tripod really wont make much of a difference...well unless you have been into the beer and can't stand up.

Contrary to what I may portray I'm not a fully blown alcholic, however that does not stop me from making fun of other drunks
