mainiacs are an odd bunch. I would think that kinetic scupture racing would go over well there.

None in New England that I know of, Pete. There was one in Allentown, PA, but I don't know if they are active these days. I ought to do some checking, and I'll try to post an update.

Re: Kinetic Sculpture Racing - Millicent's purpose in life


...And here's the update: The Allentown KSR does not seem to be happening these days.

But the west coast races are doing great. Here is you-know-who at Ventura in October.





Yes, I turned the chopper into a trike. Now it's close to unstoppable.

Re: Kinetic Sculpture Racing - Millicent's purpose in life

Those tires are massive, even by dirt track standards. The beadlocks are a REALLY nice touch.

Is there such a thing as a kinetic snow race? Perhaps an alpine competition if nothing else?

Re: Kinetic Sculpture Racing - Millicent's purpose in life


The tires are all the same Right Rear from Sprint Cars, as seen somewhere around here before. But I have some of them mounted on e-x-t-r-a w-i-d-e rims to maximize bouyancy. The one with the blue bead locks is 26" wide. Bead lock rims weigh more, but I don't think I could seat the tire without them.

Kinetic Snow Race? There is now. HEY EVERYBODY! ANDREW IS ORGANIZING A HUMAN POWERED SCULPTURE RACE IN THE SNOW!

Re: Kinetic Sculpture Racing - Millicent's purpose in life

Elliot, I thought of you when I wandered across this post about a pedal powered art car. The video includes an encounter with the police who don't find it very amusing...

I've enjoyed looking through your pages on KSR - looks like fun.
