New year, new possibilities!
If you haven’t started to get your land speed car or motorcycle ready for the August-September racing season, you are running late!

--- Nice write-up about Efest West! ---
The KillaJoule was on display at the Efest West by ASME (American Society of Mechanical Engineers) in Las Vegas last week.
Here is a nice write-up about the event that included everything from robot competition and human-powered vehicles competition, to drone-smith workshops and seminars. I was one of three keynote speakers, and my speech was titled "World speed records and 3D printed motorcycles: Why engineers are superheroes!" The other two keynote speakers picked up on my superhero theme and referred back to my presentation. That's was pretty cool. :-)
The purpose of the Efests is increase the interest in engineering education, and encourage engineering students to use their skills and knowledge to make the world a better and safer place.

--- KillaJoule in sidecar quiz! ---
Just found out that KillaJoule and I are in the Allstate Rider News quiz "Everything You Didn’t Know About Motorcycle Sidecars".
Apparently that title also applies to me, I answered the question about myself incorrect..... >_< I had to check my own list of records to find the record for 2014.... :-) ... See more
Their origin dates back to an 1893 contest by a French newspaper looking for the best way to comfortably carry a bicycle passenger. A French army officer, Mr. M. Bertoux, came up with the winning sidecar design. ... See more
Wish I had some non-fossile-fuel-based candles to light at #EarthHour2017.

--- Smoother ride for the KillaJoule! ---
Bill was put to work today installing new rubber damped equalizers on the trailer.
The rubber in the old ones was all squashed and that might have been one reason for the rough ride on the last trip. Hopefully the ride for the KillaJoule will now be smoother. It would be nice if it would stay in place and not frequently beat itself to pieces....
The Lucas Oil "extreme pressure valve train grease" handed out at the Mike Cook's Land Speed Shootout a few years ago came in handy! :-)
