Skid Marks

Post by ynad » Sat Jul 14, 2007 3:01 pm

It's not a track, but a very fun surface to run.
The rooftop provides almost perfect (more dirt wont hurt :grin: ) track for my Rally EVO.
Here are few pics of skid marks.

I reluctantly clicked on this thread.......
But I said to myself- "if he was going to post pics of his leakage problem, it wouldn't be under "tracks", would it?"

:lol:

looks like fun...... as long as it stays on the roof :shock:

If it comes off the roof, is it going to have MORE or LESS damage than the last thing he ran it into?

Looks more like donuts than drift, but it looks fun either way.

:lol: It's roof of a building, so it has walls around.
I wouldn't wanna make first case of death by xmod :lol:
It was not intended to have spectacular drift "skids", just for fun.
It is possible to see how inner wheel hops under hard turn and general
handling behavior (I mean in the pics).
If that all makes sense :???:

We used to run go karts on the roof of my grandfathers warehouse until the roof started leaking then we had to re-tar it and none of us wanted to risk having to do that again.

The karts were easy, it just took three people and a rope. We could have dragged them up the stairwell but if my uncle (who ran the warehouse) had seen it we would have been in big trouble before our first run. My grandfather knew what we were doing but didn't say anything until he had a steady stream of rain comming in on his stock (Wise Potato Chips & snacks that he distributed) we could get away with running after the warehouse was closed for the day because my grandparents house was the only house near the place. One tip if you ever try something like this--wacth for vent pipes they tend to get tared when the roof is done and its hard to see them until its to late.

here's a picture of the kart:Image

I'm serious, if I'm more than 30 feet off the ground on a structure I'm scared as shit, but when I'm on the rocks I'm fine.

Maybe you fell to your death from a building in a past life? :eek: You could call one of the 900 psychic lines to find out what famous person you were :razz:
