    Oh hell yeah. I want one. I like how they have a single wire electric fence to keep the animals off the track on the lower part of the ride.

    You have winding canyon roads and a truck that won't power suge by surprise. Thats all you need. I've driven those roads in a rental car that I did not care about. Not caring about the car makes it nicer!

    Also places that have mountain coasters have winter!

    I've driven a Nissan Titan as if it were a sports car on the section of Highway 9 between Santa Cruz and Boulder Creek (and then 236 north of that! ) when it was wet out. Pretty close.

    There are alpine slides all over the place. Fewer "coasters", but they're out there, too. I'm sure you can find one close enough for a weekend trip.

    Sounded like he had a flat-spotted wheel or a bad bearing. I wonder if they have brakes too. Seems like they must, or else pops woulda rammed the kid (assuming he stayed aero enough).

    I'm a big fan of driving quickly on twisty mountain roads. The big fun killer is RVs! If I run up on one, I pull off ASAP and take a little break.

    Prii are pretty far down on the twisty road fun killer list. Generally below Excursions, Yukons, Astrovans, Roadmasters, etc.

    BTW, one of my dreams is to someday get a car onto this road for a day:

    The video doesn't do it justice. It is pretty damn gnarly.

    I saw the video for this from a different user, but holy crap that looks fun.
    Food for thought: if you aren't dead by 2050, you and your entire family will be within a few years from starvation. Now that is a cruel gift to leave for your offspring. ;)

    You guys do realize that after the liabilities lawyers get through with the concept,you'll have to wear a big red "Mythbuster's" type safety suit and the kart will have a totally enclosed safety certified rollcage/cover and an automatic braking system to limited the speed to 5 K's or less.

    5,000 miles per hour limiter. That's OK, I can live with that.

    Do it the low tech way. Find a tall building with a staircase that runs from top to bottom and then slide down the banister.
