Power Tool Drag Racing Rules
The track specifications include:
Fun and Safety
Your racers can be anything from mild to wild. They can be bare bones dragsters or funny cars designed to show off your artistic flair. We have electronic control circuitry similar to a drag strip Christmas tree and dead man switches to cut power to your racer if it begins to go out of control.
Power tools operate at high rpm's so careful consideration is needed to assure that parts don't come flying off that could hurt someone. This event is planned for the fun and amusement of our participants and the audience so safety is important. We enjoy fascinating projects and spectacular failures, but we will be among people who may not share our appreciation of unexpected results. Safety will be a primary concern at the Maker Expo and want each exhibit including Power Tools Racers to operate safely and protect everyone from any harm.
