CSSN Racing is writing a book detailing the defense of our Ultimate Speed Challenge wins/record. Photos, tests, speed secrets & more!!!

CSSN racing is writing a book covering our effort to defend our title at the 2012 Ultimate Speed Challenge.  The book will document the team's work in developing our 2012 USC entries as well as action during race week (testing, race prep, and the race).  The story will be told via a combination of imagery and text. High quality glossy photos and graphs in a quality hardcover.    Speed secrets revealed!!

As a team we have spent the year since our 2011 victory working on going faster.   Testing, testing, and more testing, new car, new wheels, improving the cars and working on our race prep.    The ultimate goal is the race. The All American Ultimate Speed Challenge race, will be held during the 75th annual Soap Box Derby on July 21st of this year. The race is decided by thousandths of a second. While, one needs a complete package to be competitive (car, driver, and wheels) and this book tells the story of our pursuit of the most complete package.

Our work builds upon our successful development work over the past 3 years which led to back-to-back wins. Last, year they even made up a new word "Macerolandi" to describe how fast we went. http://soundcloud.com/lemuroid/track-records-2011-aa-soap-box

We are raising funds to help cover the costs of publishing the book.  Excess funds will be used to cover race related expeses (manufacturing of the hubs (custom CNC machined from billet) and tires (custom rubber formula molded onto the hub, building and prepping the cars, test equipment, bearings...).
