How about the one of my rocket on the way up while you guys were "sitting on the pads?....LOL

Anyone get a video of the race?


LOL you mean this one, the one I wasn't going to post? The one I had hoped you'd forgot about?

Many years ago the great British explorer George Mallory, who was to die on Mount Everest, was asked why did he want to climb it. He said, "Because it is there."
Well, space is there, and we're going to climb it

I just want to say: everyone who played in the race was a winner!

We all had more fun than adult grown men should be legally allowed.
There are no losers in a Crazy Jim drag race, it's not part of the rules.

Congratulations to all the winners, and here's to hoping we can do it again someday.

Now I came a looong way to start this tradition & I expect you guys to keep it going till my return!!!!!

It's just a shame the rest of the entrants did not make it on time....too bad...tooo sad.

But even more fun than the race, was the evening parties leading up to it.

Thank you one and all for inviting me down under, to spread some chaos & mayhem, and I'm proud to call you all my " mate's".

CJ

Ps ....and yes maybe the 'green toothpaste' I brought along, may have contributed in some small way to my igniter construction.....LOL :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :D :D

X4 that is freaking awesome David, thanks for sharing it.

Chris, I'm thinking; can't be CJ - he was long gone... I over took (with indicators on) David early on...Sumo was eating everyones smoke...Blake was still on the pad - so maybe it is Scoop's beast?

I'm still buzzing from that race, count me in the next one 8)

I'd be pretty confident to say that IS my CGN Talon 6!

Drag races are always fun, a Skidmark drag race even better ... A Crazy Jim M Skidmark drag race IS FREAKIN Awesome!
Unfortunately I think Simon gets to "wear the dress" on this one! :P
