I saw a short film last night - I laughed till I cried!

I'd never seen it before - but it looked like alot of fun - and the opportunity to be creative.

He He - lots of crashes, rollovers, and tangled extension cords.

They really go!

They were usuing a wooden track with guide rails to keep them straight - maybe 50 feet long. All of them were plugged into the same outlet strip - "gentlemen, start your engines" - the starter would flip the switch and off they'd go.
Traction, power, speed, handling - everything racing has, even blood - the handlers testing thier rigs.



Hmmm, I wonder - these were belt sanders drag racing.

Do they use orbital sanders for circle track racing?

I don't recall the show, but I watched one where they raced all kinds of Power tools. Any wy you could make them race! Circular Saws, Angle Grinders, Power drills... Pretty scary when they went off the track! But good for a Laugh none the less /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif
