Just Shootin the Breeze – Getting a Grip

There’s a recurring discussion about which kite or buggy is better/faster involving all manner of intricate factors that are virtually impossible to quantify with any degree of accuracy without employing a small army of techie types armed to the teeth with accelerometers, strain gauges and data logging software.  In the Motorsports community, we call these […]
