    Got a quick Q,how does the ski stay stationary in the launch pad?

    Just wondering what keeps the ski from idling forward...there's a guy in the back of the pad releasing the skis with pole stick of some kind that holds the ski...

    someone chime in on this who knows...

    the guy in the back raises and drops the skis, that is a winch type system that will raise the skis enough to hold them on the bunks but keep the pump loaded if you give the ski some gas it will come off the bunks, the guy in the back is at the center where the winch is located then there is a bar and pulleys that attach to each side to raise and lower

    that would be cool I hope there are some others that start up a drag series

    Duke does a lot of work on the launch pad he may have pictures if not he could give you lots of info not sure where the pad is right now

    Speaking of Duke...

    Shane let me put my GoPros on the platform this year and I made some slowmotion shots (1/4 speed). Here's some of Duke's launches and note in the last two scenes the guy in the back flipping the lever, which drops the bunks. Being on the platform is a ride in itself. Damn thing comes back about 3 feet or so after the skis clear.

    Eric , last summer the promoter of CC racing in Reg 8 (Wayne) discussed with me at his event some ideas to add Drags to the CC event for 2014,He said email to his website NEWA in the Fall with some ways to have drag racing and even radar runs if he can get enough competitors....I can not see how he CAN NOT get 20-30 racers in the NY,NJ,CT,PA etc...

    So I did...he got back to me a few wks ago from vacation and " is looking into it"


    personally I like to see a Bracket system with a double elimination ,its must be tough to travel a good distance for a 4-5 second race...just a thought ..

    Email his site, Im sure he wants to hear from everyone with their ideas and interest...
