Bob Wagner,or Robert S Wagner as he is known today,of the old 4400 Campus Club in Norfolk,Va. is currently the premier longboard skateboard savage on the east coast. He rides an arsenal of 44"to 60" stiff boards and cuts freely at will at high speed with extreme body english . He rides a unique secret area in central he calls the Cobra,a 40 mph bomb rush that evolves into a 300'vertical climb and a 100'walk back to the start. He has been riding this area since 1998.Scares the hell out of drivers when they have a bomber flying uphill at them. Truly ,one of the best on the U.S.mainland .

Zambobian Hill Bomber Robert S Wagner of Virginia Beach has been actively shredding wheels since 1963. I recently saw him in West Virginia going downhill on a 60" Rhino Spear at 40 mph. He rides in the Virginia hill country, Maryland,and NC. The man knocks at the perpetual door of death every time he drops in at tells Satan he'll meet him for lunch. One of the world's best and worth watching the show!

Used this site when I was first starting out in 2004. All the big names are here, they know what they are doing, obviously from someone taking pictures at over 65 mph !! Moving to the east coast, we'll have to figure out a way to keep him interested. Don J

The previous entry from Dean Salter is perhaps typical of X Games expectations. I remember seeing grown men cry when they were eliminated during qualifying. Everyone thought an X Games victory would translate to real life success. What we missed is that the X Games were just... games.

Dave and I both qualified on wooden luges and then were told we couldn't race them. Dean Salter and Jim Kiper *did* step up and help us by making metal luges. I don't remember how much we paid, but I remember it was a pretty good deal for custom luges. For people who have read "Street Luge Survival Guide" this will not be a surprise. Dean and Jim are mentioned by name, along with illustrations I did of the boards. In fact "Bullet Board" is listed 3 times in the index, along with "Salter, Dean, " Kiper, Jim" (twice) and "" That's actually more index listings than Dave Auld has himself. I even listed "Bullet Board" in the exclusive manufacture's section, along with the likes of "Dregs" and "Randal Speed Trucks."

But perhaps Dean wasn't looking for recognition from the few thousand Lugers that read this book worldwide. Perhaps he wanted more. I know Marcus and Bob helped me get a "Bullet Board" with logo prominently featured in X Games coverage. It was a shot used several times.

Perhaps Dean never watched that year's coverage, and never read the book. Maybe he was hoping my third place medal would earn me an "Oscar Acceptance Speech" where I could extol the virtues of Dean and "Bullet Board" until I was dragged off stage, flashing my "" t-shirt, while Dean himself kicked back with Woody Allen, awaiting thousands of Paparazzi to hunt him down.

I'm not exactly sure what Dean really wanted. But it's obvious he wanted more.

it really is funny that when dave and darren went to the x-games in 97' the only people who would step up and help dave and darren go to the games, are the guys from bullet board street luge, who stepped up and built both riders a custum board, that not only performed well but also brought them medals as well, and no recognition was ever given to bullet board, just like the typical streetluger out for themselves. dean salter BULLET BOARD CO.

Hi everyone. Dave, this is a great site. I don't remember if we met or not, but I am Michael Shannon's daughter (or Justin Shannon's sister), the red-haired one. I used to attend most of the races and loved it, but ever since he quit, I haven't seen another race, I'd love to see more. I met most of the street lugers back at Ansted, Sam's Gap, Madison,IN, and a few other places. I remember Beagle, the loud funny one (he was posing nude for a magazine with only a helmet to cover himself at the Ansted race I attended), the Tripps, Scooter Swartz, Fast Eddy, Andy, and so many others. Anyway, to the point... I would love if people would email or im (yahoo-redgerbera36) me about any upcoming races (if any) because I would love to attend and possibly learn. Or I'd love to just hear from you! Chenoa

First of all,a big hello to anybody out there that might remember me-I raced in the mid 90's in california,and the inaugural Extreme Games in Providence RI.Bob Stiles and I were the first racers to use Randal trucks at a Luge event.Im stoked to see that Randals trucks are so well known now.What brought me to this site was a wild hair to see if anyone had ever started a street luge school.I always wanted to start my own school at Laguna Seca Raceway(I have worked there for 12 years now doing the "comline" and the track PA).I was shocked to find out that the school was only about 45 minutes away from where I live.I would really like to connect with Mr. Auld

This weekend we raced at Hot Heels Africa, World Cup Final and unfortunately there was a nasty accident. Please keep South African Stand up rider, Lloyd McPherson, who sustained very serious head injuries, and his family in your prayers and thoughts. I am pleading to everyone to check that their equipment is up to standard and that all precautions are taken. Your helmet may be in good condition but check to see if it is designed to take the impact that can be sustained in downhill racing, impact close on 120km/h (75m/h) I hear downhill racers in every disapline saying that our sport is safe and just appears dangerous due to the amounts of protective clothing that we are wearing. We got to stop kidding ourselves, our sport is dangerous, riders have to start taken their safety seriously. This is an appeal and I hope that it is taken seriously!

I'm glad I found your web site. My son is 7 years old, and has been driving me crazy to build him a street luge. We recently had our driveway paved which has a small hill, and it's quit long. So off I went to my shop to do some designing. Never having built one before, I'm having alot of fun doing it. I guess I'm thinking back to my younger days when I was always building something. The basic chassis is pretyy much done, I'm just waiting for the trucks and wheels to arrive, Hopefully in time for Christmas. If you would like to see my progress so far I'll send you some pic. Thanks again, Bob

We recently had a race here in SA (24th-26th Sept) Slow hill, but it resulted in some close, exciting racing! Fortunatly there were very few crashes. The first time I have ridden since November 2003 and my screwed up leg gave no problems. When are we going to get some of you international racers (especially the USA riders) coming to SA to race so that we can give you guys a run. With the exchange rate as it is, it'll be a cheap trip for you and there is much to do, entertainment wise and many wild hills to ride! The standard of racing here is pretty high and will make for some close races. Come on, I dare you to take us on:-)

I am a regular visitor to this site, as I see something new every time! As I said in a previous comment left here, I had a massive accident in November - I am still recovering and have about 70% use of my leg. Due to this accident I haven't ridden since, however I am missing it so much that I am considering bombing some hills in the very near future, dispite my bad leg! It is encouraging to see so many people building luges, now we need to see more people competeing!!!! Especially in South Africa! Anyway, Keep safe - Graham Montanari (Team Aztec - South Africa)

Does anyone have information on powered luges? I am very new to the sport, but I am corresponding with a German fellow who wants to build a jet engine for which I have the plans. He wants to strap it on his luge and go for the world record, which he says is 160 Km/H. (???) Can't be crazier than what you guys do on a regular basis anyway. --Paul

Hello to all the REAL jumpers. When all of you were jumping I was off in the sidelines and you said things like, "Hey who the hell is that kid over there?". I started in 1967 and all these new jumpers today think that was a long time ago and that I have a low D license [2285], but I know my number is high and what a real low number is. AS I always tell them, "I didn't invent skydiving, but I jumped with the guys who did." Some of you I met are Bill Jolly, who was quite nice to 3 college kids traveling through Orange, Mass in summer of 1968. Also on that trip we met Jim and Marge Bates who also were great. And Nate Pond was around the DZ too. Later after our Inn jump, I got Lew Sanborn to sign my logbook at the Inn. I tended bar at the 18th Corp Club Bar on Fort Bragg in 1970 also, and even recall serving Tee Taylor a beer there. There were others too, but this is already too long. Glad to see this site and hope some preservation of the REAL early days is ongoing. tom Manship titten bigerotik Pflaume gratis scheuerfuchs livecam Webcam

Dave, your site is tops. Me and my mates are lazy and so dont have proper boards as of yet, but we just grab skateboards and use those. We live in Ferny Hills, and incase the name isnt obvious enough, there are heaps of awesome hills here, they are all residential roads, but we have a great time, the cars and turns make it all the more challenging, I reckon on our hills we can get about 70 - 80 kph so obviously not as fast as with proper boards. Oh and to the guy about the wobbling board, they're speed wobbles. the only way you can stop them is by tightening the trucks up so hard you cant steer, so you really just have to learn to control them. they come in at about 45 kph on skateboards, and to stop them we usually put our elbows out, relax, or put your knees out so it looks like your giving birth or sumthing. We film suum of our practise luging on a quiet hill, and there are some videos of it at my website:

Firstly I have to say this is a great web site I really enjoyed browsing through it. Secondly I have a favor to ask of anyone who reads this. I have built two Street luge’s, both out of wood my first one is quite similar to the luge Dave is now working on. And when I took it of a test run it was fine until I got to about 30MPH, at that point it started to wobble to a point where it almost through me off the board. At this time I changed the design of the board in that I got rid of the plastic spacers in exchange for wood blocks and I straightened up the trucks so they were both facing exactly the same way. But still the Luge wobbled about the same. So I built another board this time out of high quality Oak accept for being a little wider it is almost the same as Dave’s first Skull board. This time I used 11.5-inch tracker 219 trucks and 85MM wheels. I thought for sure this would get rid of the problem but again the board wobbled, possibly even worse than before. I have tried to find help in the Street Luge Survival Guide and I still have no idea how to improve my board, my only other thought is to possibly add as second set of trucks and wheels, hopefully to offset the wobble. Being that I am in Ohio and I don’t know anyone here that street luge's I was hoping someone out there may be so kind as to offer their opinion. You can email me at Thank you all very much, Dave

Absolutely great site, and like a lot of others, has inspired me to build my own. Though I suspect it is a blasphemous question, I wonder why no one has figured a way to motorize one of these (other than the rocket powered webpage). Here in Houston, you can't buy a hill.

I live on Twin Pines Road; right across from the starting point for your rides. I watched from my porch all morning this past mid- October- I just thought at the time that you were nuts, but it really does look like fun. Next time you guys plan something like that, I'll walk over and introduce myself- bring over some beers or whatever... I would be interested in learning more...

I think everyone before me has comented on the great quality of your what the hell, so will I. It's Great! I am fairly new to the sport, and after watching the x-games in previous years, i decided to take it up... it looked like such a rush! I coned my engineering teacher into letting me design a luge for an indepent study my senior year... it was a mamoth one made from welded tubular steel, and it weighed close to 40 lbs...Yikes! I've built a number of boards, but i am still partial to my "woody". We have some sweet roads out here in Colorado, it would be cool to see a leauge start up out here! Good luck in all of your future races!

Great site, After not riding for over 25 years I was able to hook up with Sam Puccio and ride at Steve Pearls place in N.Calif. Sam was the first LUGE at signal hill in 1976, I was on a kneeboard, we both went 54 mph that year but Sam was the WINNER as my 54 mph run was in a tiebreaker for 2nd place with Tommy Ryan. My LUGE was built two weeks later, and I still have it,LUGE RACING WAS STARTED BY SAM PUCCIO, So give him the credit, Thanks for a great site, The need for speed never dies, even when your over 48 years old....Blackhill La Costa 1976 John Hughes

Hey Dave great to see the guest book up as I have been wanting to drop you a line and thank you for all the great info. I have built my own board and riden it in clermont florida this past friday with phil kirkland who is experienced and showed me the "right" way not to get killed. I rode a beginner hill with a couple of turns at 43 mph and then we moved to a larger hill which I achieved 60 mph on the straight run. It was great! Got to crash once too(into a curb) at 35 that was an eye opener but with the right gear all went well. Cant wait to ride again and I have hooked up with the fla luge assoc. and were planning a fun run soon. Maybe we can send you some photos for your site to prove you can ride in florida! Well any how just wanted to touch base and say thanks again!

Great page... as a true beginer i have to say that your page gave me the best info to start understanding the sport.

I am writing from Peru-South America... Its been in my mind for a long time the idea of going downhill in a board. As far as i know there is not one street ludger here in Peru from whom to learn the basics.

I will realy apreciate someone who can give me guidelines on how to beging in a very low budget without killing myself... As you can imagine this will be a solitary adventure for the moment... i am sure friends will stop calling me crazy once they have the oportunity to try it... And hopefully a Peruvian team will be on the road soon.

Please a hand so we can start a passion around here. I wish to make some basic questions and receive all the recomendations everybady can give.
If you or anyone whants anything from lima peru i will be pleased to help specialy in the travelling stuff since i am a Latin America tour leader.

Have lots of fun... hope to be going downhill at 80kmphour very soon.

Great site, yesterday for some reason i decided i wanted to build a street luge, being an ex-paratrooper i hadnt had much fun in a while and decided to look it up on the net and i found your site. That was last night, today i went out and found all the parts i needed to build a replica of your street luge on this page, in 3 stops no less. And in 6 hours of work i had a rolling chassis minus a head rest, that works really well, although i have only tested it at 20 some odd miles an hour, it runs really nice. I built it off the slimlined luge you have posted, and now i get to my question, how much flex in the middle is acceptable, i have reinforced the back pan with some 3/4 inch aluminum strips, but im still getting a good amount of flex. At 20 miles an hour its fine, i just dont want to find out its not fine at higher speeds, my next question is how big a spacer should i use on my trucks and what affect comes into play with the spacers? Im waiting on my luge survivail guide to come in before i really hit the monster hills we have in Austin Tx, believe it or not austin has some really nice rolling roads here, I dont know why street luging isnt bigger here. If you or anyone else couldnt help me out i would really appreciate it.

Your site has helped us with board designs as well as many other aspects to luging. We were wondering if you knew of any street luging organisations in Australia, particularly in Victoria. If you know of any, could you please pass the information our way that would be excellent.

Dave, Once again thanks for a job well done. to bad the only actoin shot of me is one with my foot down all the way down the coarse(behind George), because when we crashed the run before he broke his truck,and when he got to the right hand sweeper he started to wob and slide all over,so I put a foot down and kept it down. I was not about to tangle with him again, the first time hurt bad enough.
At least I made it in one of the top 11 spots after breaking my wrist and a finger friday in practice on my but board, I feel very lucky. did you notice that I am the only one of the guys in the picture of those going to the games that did not have(and has never had) a medal around his neck, how did that happen? Like I said I feel lcky to be going. Thanks Again
P.S. I got a good price for all your stuff. Sending a check for $150 soon. Late

hi, im 15 years old and have been street lugeing with my 3 friends since 1997. we have starter to call our selves "team MEC". we have made 5 boards. we are very ecsited about what we are doing. our boards are made of the old, wide skate boards with alluminum fronts. we have experimented with many differnt finds of breaks (because were ruining so many pairs of shoes) we have thought of a hand break, that you pull back on. and a foot break that comes up next to the "T" part of the board and you press on it with your foot. each year we are progresing with new ideas and faster boards. i hope i will be able to street luge for many many more years.

Revolutionary Bearing Oil!!!
Do any of you guys beleive in a BETTER bearing oil? I have been producing and selling my oil since 2 years ago to skateboarders and longboarders in the Albuquerque, New Mexico area. The oil has the same viscocity of a 10w-30 motor oil right out of the bottle but gets far thinner with one use. I have picture proof that the oil collects less dirt and debrief than any other oil ive used and have rolling proof that it helps on bearing life and helps bearings spin longer 3:1 over anyother oil ive ever tried. Ive altered it especially for lugeing cause luge bearings dont hold a load as in hard landing but rather a load for speed therefore they need a oil that stands up to all torments of heat and makes for a better spin and doesnt bogg down. If you dont believe me and you too believe that bearing oil helps aggressavily in luge performance i will send you a bottle free of charge for you to try. Email me if youd like a bottle.
Plus ive devised a new way to keep bearings lubed with a special grease/oil mix i also made that you put on the inside of you wheels to help aid in oilong bearings so you dont have to. For more information write me.

New Mexico Fun Run!!!
The New Mexico Fun run Dates are set for May 30, 31, and June 1st. Thats a wednesday, thursday and friday if your wondering. We will be riding from 7am to1-2pm so you might want to be here a couple days early to be ready. We will be using a U-Haul as the vehicle to get everyone back up the hill and along with it my friends van. We have the permits as far as we know and its pretty much official. A word of Warning: Dont be suprised if at the last minute we get turned down or something interferes with the fun run, nothing should happen but if it were to happen im just warning ahead of time. Dont worry though, i think this will go just as planned! Also just in case your wondering, the road is 14 miles long and hits speeds of up to 80 mph. On a good day at the summit, you can see over the clouds as you are about 1 mile above them. So its a pretty cool road. I counted 117 turns in the whole road as well as its like a 12-14% grade all the way down. If you have not yet heard about it and need info email me or leave your questions on the mile high message board in website.

Dear Dave,

I am 16 and have been envolved in streetluging for almost 2 years now. I have just completed my second board, and cant wait to ride it. The X games are coming to my home city phily over the next two years, and I was just wondering by writing this letter in your guestbook, if anyone had info about any luging events in the P.A. or pa boarding states. If so could you please send that info to me.

Thanx for putting up this nice site.It made me dream about buildin' a streetluge straight away!I made some skates and longboards already,but it's hard to get some of the hardware overhere.The other problem is the flatness of my if there is anyone that's got a solution to that,please inform me.
Must start designin' now,c'ya later.

heres the deal, I'm the "brazilian rocket" and im a serious street luger. me and two of my collegues are putting together the awsomest and most accurate and the widest covering street luge video ever. we need your help in this process. we want any footage of you and your buds on your boards. you dont have to be a pro. we want this video to show the world how this sport really is. so if all you have to wear is a T-shirt and jeans, bring it on. we want to see your designs and improvments and hear any stories and tips you might have. this video will not have any fancy computer graphics or effects. it will be very basic, showing the truth about our sport.

i garantee that if you send me any footage at all of street luging, as long as it does not contain any vulgar or nude or sexual or racest content, that it will be on the video. i dont really expect any but i have to say that.

im sorry to say that i CANNOT pay you anything for contributing to the video. nor can i garantee that the video will make it to print. if the video does make it into print, it will sell for around $8 dollars US. by order.

before i give out the mailing adress, i need to know if you are interested. so write me ASAP, and we'll give you the mailing adress.

Hi Dave,

I just hit your site and have to state that it is a great place for Infromation and Entertainment. I was glad to see so many Photos and read reports and stuff. JUST GREAT.

My back is still giving me big pain from time to time and I never will be back racing, but my goal for this year is to be able to have some 'quite' runs at HOT HEELS. So I am training my back and try getting into shape.

I hope to see as many of you international riders at HOT HEELS.

All the best

Team Nemesis In Albuquerque, New Mexico is holding a 3-day Test & Tune fun run on nm536 in Cedar Crest, New Mexico on (the Dates)May 30,31,and June 1. this is not a race and is not a sanctioned event. The road will be closed off from about 8am to 2pm each of the 3 days. Our governer,Gary Johnson(a member of our luge team) will be riding on any of these 3 days also. The point in this is Randall Turner suggested we film a movie where we are getting chased by the state patrol. I havent talked to gary yet but i think that can be arranged. The road is called nm536, you tske I-40 east to north 14, then take north 14 to nm536(this is coming from the albuquerque area.). The road is 14 miles long of which we will be using about 11 miles of it. There is a gift shop and small cafe at the top of the road as well as a good size parking lot for vehicles. The road is about 20 minutes out of Albuquerque and about 1 minute out of Cedar Crest. Theres is about 50+ turns in the whole road, im not too sure what the grade is but i have been over 70 before on it, but the usual avg. speed is about 60-60mph. These dates are not set yet, but are most likely the days we will ride. We already have a good size list of riders who will be attending but are looking for anyone and everyone who will be interested in coming down here for 1 if not 3 days of the test&tune fun run(think of it as the last major hill you will ride before the x-games) For info regarding this you can call me, justin, @ 1-505-890-8504, or email me at fliers will be sent out shortly, as well as any breif advertising as well. we are really hoping for a BIG test&tune fun run. Thanx, Justin Franklin Team Nemesis

It seems to me that all you lugers dont mind traveling cross-country for a good luge race.I have a 14 mile road here in New Mexico, just outside of Albuquerque and Sante Fe, that we luge on frequently and since our last visit with the county sherrif, he said we can ride on it when we want and if we want to hold a race on it, we are more than welcome, they would love to support it. Now every time i tell you guys about this road, you just blow me off like i dont mean anything to the sport. for the past three years i have been trying to get someone to speek out about this road and bring a race to it, but again , i get blown off. I have pictures of the road along with countless videos of it too. if anyone is interested in the road please email me, you guys have all seemed to look past the possibilities of this state and what it has to offer, dont forget, New Mexico is part of the rocky mountains, and if you dont think we have good luge hills, you are absolutely nuts, give this one a try, believe me you guys will like what you see. by the way, my name is justin from Team Nemesis, i have been lugeing for the past 7 1/2 years and i know the rules of racing and i know how to tell what a good luge run is, if you guys dont look into this raod, then your passing up a possibility of a very ideal luge run for a race, you be the judge.

Last night 2 friends of mine and fellow luge pilots slid off the road into concrete posts at around 70km/h. Leander broke the bottom of his foot/heel and Nicholas broke his femur (upper leg). They could have easily both been more seriously injured or even killed. We spent most of the early morning in hospital. They both have to have surgery as their injuries are serious. Leander was planning to go to the EDI race. They had safety equipment on but when you hit concrete posts nothing will save you. Please be careful and wear full helmets and full leathers AT ALL TIMES. Please send some messages to so I can print them out and take them to the guys in hospital. Thanks Monta Man De Luge ‘n All Racing Team Cape Town South Africa

I hope all of you feel the same that Hot Heels 2000 was such a great success, even Kaunertal is right behind the event now ? Next week we have the debrief about the event, and all sponsors, TV stations, newspapers had fun with us this time. I wish more of you could be a part of the event, but maybe next time ! Fact is Hot Heels will be happen in Kaunertal next year as well, maybe a week later ! For all competitors at the event, we couldn´t hand out the resultlist in time, therefore you guys get a free video and a resultlist send by mail. enjoy the video, we put on the 26 min. highlite tape as well the roughcut for more action.(only european format, US boys please find a recorder to play it most of them allready working)...... What else to say: we had 123 entry´s but only 91 riders showed up.. let me know the reason ??? One question for all you guys out there....., as you could see we changed the format of the event, sport and party share 50/50 of the event. PLEASE LET ME KNOW, ARE WE ON THE RIGHT WAY WITH OUR EVENT AND WHAT ELSE DO YOU GUYS WANT TO HAVE AT THE EVENT ?????? For any input you can give i appreciate to work on it and make an better event..... first changes we saw this year we will do so to make it easier for you to come to hot heels. The entry fee will be less next year. I´m working on a way which is fair to everyone. last but not least congrates to all winners: Jochen Baumann Snakeboard 1.time David Rogers Streetluge Gerhard Lanz Classic / Buttboard Dallas Oberholzer Stand up thanxx Darren for your input about the tophys last year, i think these one´s are quiet nice for Hot Heels. Congrates to Stefan Wagner who takes away the wandertrophy, he won the classic event 3 times same as ralph Kohler but never to a trophy, thanxx stefan for everything you did for us in Europe. Guys out there never forget the he was the man which made the deals for our first X-Games entrys !!!! This year we could give away 8 slots for X-Games 2001. (i have to talk to marcus about it because myself and tom mason are qualifyed allready for next year) So the Slots will go to: Dave Auld Dave Rogers John Fryer Olivier Wagner Darren Lott Pete Eliot Sahli Laurent Manu Antuna I hope we see you there next year ? I will update the homepage asap. So if you have any things to change let me know....(please email me) looking forward to a great event 2001... Gerhard

My name is justin, I live in Albuquerque New Mexico. there is a road out here in new mexico called CREST Rd. it is located in the town of cedar crest. We just went lugeing on this road today and yesturday and it is fast we were averaging speeds in excess of 70 mph. The road is 14 miles long and has an ever decending incline of no less that 25 dagrees and no more that 35 dagrees. I need to take this request seriously because the road is not a major road and it seems that it can easily be closed off for a few days. just today, we didnt even encounter a single car on the whole 14 mile stretch. i will be sending pics out to anyone who would like to take a look at the road, and if there are any luge racing corporations that would be interested, i would be happy to give you all the information you need and the numbers for the people you can contact. I want to try to get a petition from racers when they see the pics: that is if they would be interested in racing on this road in the very near future. I need responses quick, im going to try to convince the state to let a luge race go on on this road, i need help. believe me you will like it, it has over 140 turns, i counted them up to the first 7 miles. anyways, contact me please or you can call me at 1-(505)-890-8504.

Dave,I just got done playing sean and wade's STREET LUGE RACING game,and let me tell you IT IS A COOL GAME! The graphic's are kill,as well the game it self being fun. Contrary to other coments that have been made about the game it is beatable. I spent several hours on it and was able to go thruogh the entire equipment up grades and take 1st place in the 6 man AND 4 man season's! This game is a must for anyone that has not experienced A podium win.(in real life)and a must for any one who just love's the thrill of riding.Give me a call and we'll play!

Very cool! Had no idea the boards were so high tech. Probably not a good sport for the Chicago area .... although, the Hancock tower , due to it's slanted design, might be classified as an 'extreme grade'. Just a thought.

Hey dave, do want the chance to race luge style on snow? Have you heard about lifht modified shovel racing? Well a light modified shovel is very similer to street luge. We are on our backs going about 75MPH. We use skis instead of wheels. This is the perfect crossover sport for street lugers. I raced in the 97 winter x_games in the super modified class. They discontinued that event in the games(too extreme). But they have told me that they are interested in light modifieds because of the cross over potential for street lugers. I already have several lugers coming out to the race but I need more. Your group of guys sound like a perfect fit. The Winter X-Games says they would include it in 2000 if we can show them that there are racers doind it. This sport is wide open and you all could get in on the ground floor and help pioneer it to the next level. Are you interested? Please contact me at 505-266-6599 or e_mail me and I will tell you all about it. The race is in Angel Fire NM the first weekend in Feb. so it is not too late.

Between you and Darren, the idea of putting together a luge from wood is sounding better and better. I guess I'm gonna have to put the old welder to rest and see if I can drive a nail straight! Great site and the photos are super. Hope to see you in Ansted this year.
