Good quality video.
I wonder if the Palm Pilot survived the crash.

The bike will be at the shop (Bill's Garage Monday night) we will
start fixing it up. With a lot of work we should have it ready for the
next race on the 27th with any luck. Did you notice in the video John
posted the mini Van moved over quite a bit. It jumped pretty good
looked like it moved a few feet.

-------------------------------

are you guys going to race the bike on the 27th or put it in a show?

Re: [EVDL] killacycle crash - High quality video

Wow. This sounds really exciting, Derek. It would be
interesting too see direct to direct comparisons too
like:
what gear the ICE dragbike is in at each interval of
the track or at the very least the same interval as
the killacycle is at during series-to-parallel
switching
The engine HP and RPM and gear the ICE dragbike is for
its 1/8 mile mark
A split screen view of prep for both bikes as they
ready for the line

I really cant wait to hear or see how well this goes.
Good luck.

Derek,
Are you racing at Bandimere, and will it be open to the public?
Thanks,
