Overshadowed topics ...

Postby TommyK » Sun Apr 18, 2010 9:46 pm

any thoughts on the multitude of other overshadowed events? Spirit spins thrice, SigEp first frat to legitimately beat Pika in 25 years, Zoo Alums outrun Pika Alums, Fringe B vs Pika (men and women) passing madness (best head to head races I've ever personally witnessed), Pika A breakdown hands Zoo a sweet race (was Zoo DQd for loss of 7 grams?), KDR's woes help Fringe to club record ... To name a few ...

Indeed, mad props to Sig Ep, for going from dead last 9 years ago to beating the winningest team fair & square.

SigNu looked like they lost their whole left wheel hatch, so if that weighs 7 grams, I want what they're smoking.

I can understand spinning, but what's with all the wheels falling off? It's not as if Spirit hasn't been managing to keep their wheels attached for the last 20 years or anything.

Zoo v PiKA Alums was fun to watch...Bordick definitely got her over the top of 2 nice and fast (v/2009-2010/Finals/DSCF5120.JPG.html) but something happened on the back hills!

We build 'em as good as anyone else on the hills. It was really tough on our truck to watch us zoom past PiKA on the back hills (which has not been done since at least since 90 or so) and then have the hatch go. That pass will be my greatest memory of the many hours and days I spent on the truck, especially when the hill 2 pusher picked me up and I heard the entire crowd get the loudest they've ever been (from what I have been told the noise level in the chute was ridiculous. It is still hard to lose 6th place over a wheel hatch. We spent a s***load of time making that buggy perform excellently on a cold day, I think we were the only team who picked up time on day 2. The truck was still congratulated by nearly every team on the hill, and seeing the roll clearly for the first time on cmuTV was an early christmas gift. I was also on the follow car for the alumni roll and watching chairmen from the early 80's carry the buggy onto the start line was an honor. The roll that happened afterwards was awesome - a first year buggy driver getting the roll out to close the gap by a pretty good amount is rewarding.

All the talk about SDC has been about the DQ. It’s overshadowed one of the most dominating days of racing in buggy history - at least as long as I've been involved.

Their prelim performance in all aspects – mechanics, pushers, and drivers – was utterly flawless. They set four new course records: Men’s B, Men’s C, Women’s C, and Women’s D. Their Men’s C team beat Pika A head to head. Their Men’s A team put in a ~2:04 time and was just an unlucky fish-tail away from yet another course record. Their Women’s A team was more than 10 seconds faster than 2nd place.

I thought last year was good, but their performance this year was even better. It’s very sad that a ridiculous (in my opinion) disqualification put an end to what would have undoubtedly been a similarly strong finals performance.

Congratulations Fringe on your new org. records for Men’s A, Men’s C, Men’s D, and Women’s B. Also, congrats to SigEp on keeping up the great work from last year. I know of at least one KDR who was hoping it was a fluke. And of course I’m insanely proud of my team for rolling like champs, setting new course records for Men’s B & C, setting a new org. record for Men’s D, dropping 11 seconds from last year’s Women’s C course record, and rolling the first Women’s D ever with a very nice 3:02.

Tommy, why don't you take your own advice. And while you're posting evidence of how dangerous an exploding LP tank is, why don't you also post evidence of how horrific an exploding gas tank on a uhaul truck is, as well as evidence of how statistically likely an LP tank is to explode, comparing incident numbers to numbers of everyday LP use in camp stoves, household grills, space heaters, house heating, boat/rv cooking/heating.
