K&S Kerbal Drag Racing

Recommended Posts

Once again @klond has inspired me with one of his KSP Engineering Designs and it motivated me more than ever. After seeings his design I came up with an idea and he joined with a few other ideas along the way.

I could not remove the giant stupid grin from my face throughout this video...  and made me LOL several times. 

Kerbal drag racing!   the ticket booth...  grand stands...  spectacular crashes...  This is all just too good!

Thank you for the nice comments, as most videos go I always wished a few things were done or not left out. In this case I spent hours building and setting up four sections of the grand stands and didn't catch them in the action scenes...haha

Here is an action scene with the grand stands

Thank you and yes many hours go into our projects, I actually had a day off from work and spent all of it on the video editing plus the hours of filming.

I know Klond spends hours on the Engineering and Design work, the V12 Engine, Digital Display and the Race Track Sign was hours of his work.

Cool stuff guys! Maybe we can team up! As you remember, I made a drag strip early this year. Just without the excellent video!

If you're interested, I've made the foundation for a drag racing mod back then. I haven't done anything with it since February. Take a look.

I believe drag racing is one of the most kerbal forms of racing ... until multiplayer comes along.

And now I know what klond was going to use the digital display for :-)
