well i got started just going myself and then i got some friends into it and then others so i would say build a street luge out of wood it will cost under $100 and if you follow directions well you can easily go 40-70 mph /just find a site that has some instructions on it /or i build them still but a complete board from me would cost a bit more i spend a lot of time on them/or just get the top of the line rogers bros way sick/be safe where a helmet and a jacket if you have one i started with a moto helmet a leather jacket and two pairs of jeans which worked well in crashes (slides)

Powered Streetluge Bonneville Salt Flats Results
On 9/23/2008 Roland wrote in from United States  (4.238.nnn.nnn)

As some of you know Jenna and I registered for the World of Speed event on the Bonneville Salt Flat earlier this year in an attempt to push our personal land speed records a little further. We attended the event last week and here are the results

First I would like to thank the crew who gave 125% and made the event for us.

Neil Orta Crew Chief
Chris McBride Crew
Wally Hoffman Crew
Dianna Morrison Crew

Jenna made quite a few passes over 100mph including a few passes that broke the 100mph mark in the first half-mile. We tried everything we could over the 4 days with her Powered Streetluge and after many gear and engine changes Jenna pushed her record quite a bit further with two passes at 113mph.

I on the other hand only made 4.25 passes.
130mph Course Pass 1 - At the ½ mile mark I was at 125mph so I had to back down because you should not exceed 100mph on the first run and went through the traps at 109mph.

130mph Course Pass 2 - I opened it up quite a bit more and ran 138mph.

130mph Course Pass 3 - We decided that since I only needed a 130+mph run to make the 130mph Club I should shoot for 135mph and I hit it right on the mark.

150mph Course Pass 1 - When I reached about 50mph I began to osculate so I backed it down, adjusted my riding position and tried again. At about 50mph I again began to osculate so I backed it down, adjusted and tried again. At about 50mph I again began to osculate so I pulled off the course to adjust the front trucks. When I pulled back in to line we discovered that one of the wheels had blistered. Not having any spare wheels the next 43+ hours included many phone calls and two trips to Salt Lake City with Neil and Chris arriving back at the starting line just in time for me to make one last run on the 150mph Course and it was the last run of the event.

150mph Course Pass 2 - After a minor course adjustment I went through the gears and headed for the 1 mile marker. I was just below 135 at the 1 mile marker and opened it up from there. Approaching the 2 mile marker I began feeling something stinging the back of my legs and thought it was salt until I saw black pieces flying from between my legs. Knowing I only had a ¼ mile to go to get through the speed trap I held it wide open and held on as it began to drift left with the wheels disintegrating. The GPS read 146mph so I made my way down to the timing shack to discover I had made it through the traps with a 145mph pass. Out of wheels and out of time it was my only full pass on the 150mph course.

Final results

Jenna Morrison 100cc Powered Streetluge 113.398mph
Roland Morrison 1200cc Harley-Davidson Powered Streetluge 145.170mph

Again I have to thank the crew that went above and beyond for what was a great event and blast to spend time with a great group of people.

And since I did not make the 150mph club I guess I'll have to return next year with multiple sets of wheels. J

Street luge / Classic luge
On 9/16/2008 sean wrote in from United States  (67.182.nnn.nnn)

Street luge is what you see now, with the sled. Classic luge or 'buttboarding' is like riding on your longboard.There is a website that sells 'buttboards'.
