(just making sure the new car is faster, actually we had a non-taped pure-gravity race, the old car(yellow) with the high ground advantage... we whooped it!)

I enjoyed the videos !

I really cracked up on the adult race, he could not fit in it and wrecked it 2 times. It gave me a good laugh.

For some reason, I don't see any wrecks. I see a tall ramp with a lady walking in front of it, then it's over.

Looks like the link to the wreck video is broken...


I think I have some vids of wrecks that I can upload, I'll try to get it done in the near future...


ah well, all you missed was the boy goes to the bottom of the ramp, he is already off-balance at ramp bottom... and almost as if in slow motion slowly leans to one side until he contact terra firma and then the car rolls over top of him.


I'll try to upload soon.


We have a lot going right now...

Sporty saw it before the link failed, I think... it was a big file, probably why it "magically quit working" or something...

Have to say -

Recommend sides and dividers ! to prevent this problem, straw works well.

He got up, was a little shaken, scared... but not hurt.


Our fun-run last weekend has a smaller boy crash into a curb, he took a jolt... (poor seatbelt)... this car had a footboard, BTW... but he hit dead-on the curb... the seatbelt was all he had to help him, and it did a poor job unfortunately...that is part of why we went with a seat and shoulder belt from a car this year.

We really ought to add side boards to our car and a footboard wouldn't hurt... with the steering wheel to hang onto, and shoulder/lap belt (and rollbar) we have a safer than average car, but I have to give Sporty credit that the footboards and seat side-boards are good safety features for ANY car.

We are not doing actual foot boards, but we will use a foot restraint so his feet can't fall to the asphalt. Our rules did not require a foot board, but we did strongly encourage some sort of foot restaint.
