Now if my human sexuality class could have taken it to the next level like this... ;)

Then again, we learned about quite a few things that I was better off reading in a book...

Man, if all schools had a go-cart for their physics class, we'd have a lot more engineers in this country. :)

Fury just a tip on your next coaster model, If you dip the balsa wood in boiling water and let it sit then slowly bend it and dip it, you can get it to bend suprisingly tight.

Most engineering schools participate in the SAE design competitions, where you get to design and build your own go-kart or off-raod racer.

I was fortunate to be able to work on both back in my day....:)

By the way that coaster goes for 9,800. You can get more parts for about $850-$970 a section. I'll stick with the Brewer's
