 LUGEFORCE: - Build a Woodie    

LugeForce and its contributors assume no responsibility for any personal injury or property damage resulting from the information contained within this site.  This information is only provided as a general description of how to construct a wood streetluge. The information is not intended as a detailed guide for building a luge or a recommendation on how you should construct a wood luge.THESE ARE NOT DETAILED PLANS. PLEASE CONSULT EXPERIENCED RIDERS FOR ADDITIONAL INFORMATION THAT MAY ASSIST YOU. This luge is HAS NOT BEEN SPEED TESTED IN EXCESS OF 45MPH. Note: A luge uses kinetic energy - i.e. once it begins to move it will not stop without your assistance or until it makes impact with another object - and will potentially exceed speeds that are uncontrollable. Ride at your own risk, within your limits and always wear proper safety gear.
