The incredibly successful Mercedes-Benz SL has been revamped. Now featuring a total of four engine variations, drivers can chose from a base SL280 with 231 hp or with 2 stops along the way, they can work their way up the rocket coupe 12-cylinder SL 600. All models are said to have increased horsepower, but also be more fuel efficient.
This is called a stinger missile. They are quite easy to build. They are different from other rockets in that instead of a stick or fins to stabilize them they are gyroscopicly stabilized by the spinning of the rocket which is why the fuse comes out the side. I used black powder as a propellant. It was quite windy when I blew it off which is why it goes to the side after clearing the launch pin. I am still trying to get this perfected as I am just starting out in rocketry but I thought I would share this.
Tracy McGrady touches on a variety of subjects after the Rockets loss to the Mavericks on 2/15/07.
Here is a video with some graphics to help see what is going on.
Look for it when the camera pans and you can see the glow in the crowd where the fireworks are going off. You can see that the rocket style fireworks on the cable stopped on the side closest to us but the ones on the back side continued. We believe it is those fireworks that were supposed to be going down the cable went into the crowd instead.
This was the big grand finale at the end of the show when Undertaker defeated Edge.
The Suns looked pretty good in the halfcourt game in their victory over San Antonio last Wednesday. I think it’s apparent now that you may want the Suns to run on you because Shaq is not a big a factor on defense or offense in a fast pace then in a slower half court style game. Shaq took advantage of the single team as the Spurs chose to not double and Shaq got good looks and used his size and strength to get in close for easy hooks. Tracey McGraday missed Wednesday game with the Sonics due to a sore left shoulder.You always have to worry about energy level with the Phoenix Suns because of their age and face no back to back situation in this spot against Houston. Phoenix is placing pressure on the LA Lakers to keep winning to keep ahead of the Suns as home court advantage in the first round is up for grabs late in the season. Houston is playing really good right now as they have allowed opponents to shoot under 40% in three of their last 4 games and have won 4 straight. But a quick look at the Rockets schedule and you will find 5 straight non-playoff contending teams. The Rockets are just 1-4 straight up in their last 5 games against playoff contending teams. I expect the Suns to finish strong in their final 3 games and the Suns will find a way to get the ball into Shaq and we may have got a preview of the Suns strategy in the postseason with Shaq in their victory against San Antonio. Take Phoenix +3.
This is a very tough spot for the Nuggets having to play at altitude in Utah the night before. Both teams need this game as the Nuggets are battling for the playoffs while Houston is battling for home court in the playoffs. The Rockets have jelled as a team under Rick Adelman and only give up an average of just under 92 points per game ranking them 4th in the league. Luther Head has played well for the Rockets hitting on 22 of his last 35 shots heading into Friday’s action. Head has been aggressive and has gotten into a good rhythm for the Rockets. Denver has performed poorly in back to back games as they are 2-8 ATS in their last 10 back ends and failed twice in a row at home in this spot. Let’s take the rested and better defensive team in the Rockets in this one +3.
Heading into Friday's action Houston and Utah sit with the 4 and 5 seed and would meet in the first round of the playoffs. Houston owns a better record heading into Friday's action and would host the playoff series. If both teams finish with identical records to finish the season, which is a possibility, the winner of this game would determine home court as they have split their first two meetings. So this game has purpose. Utah has been phenomenal at home this season sporting a record of 27-12 ATS through 39 home games. I don't think Utah would want to risk winning another Game 7 at Houston like they did last year to advance in the playoffs. The Rockets will have problems here defending the big men down low in Carlos Boozer and Mehmet Okur with Yao out of their lineup and especially on Utah's home court. The Jazz lost to Houston at home with Yao in the lineup and beat the Rockets in Houston with Yao out of the lineup. Utah shot for a higher percentage against the Rockets this season in their second meeting without Yao in the middle. The inside outside game worked well for Utah in victory as Boozer connected late with clutch shots and Korver got hot from the outside. Mehmet Okur has been playing great averaging over 20 points per game in his last 4. Utah plays with a lot of energy at home and I will not step in front of them in this contest. Take the Jazz -5
The space shuttle collided with a bird shortly after take off. I thought the little guy stood a chance until he past by the rocket boosters. Im pretty sure those get kinda warm.
A Taliban is filmed attempting to shoot a bazooka but the rocket fails to launch and falls just a few feet in front of him.
On the second flight of the Estes Saturn V model rocket, the engine was not secure and the rocket crashed in the ground. This was a very expensive rocket which took a long time to build.
This was my Level 1 NAR rocket launch attempt. The rocket was a PML AMRAAM on an H242 engine. The rocket drifts towards me as I was videotaping it and I had to move out of the way.
This is Me and my Motorcycle coming home early (again) from a typical Sunday afternoon ride. Notice how there is NO girl on the back (AGAIN)? PLEASE HELP ME!!! Thanks! P.s. Now I know it was the Rocket and not me the one time I gave that girl a ride home from the bus stop. DAMN I NEED YOUR VOTE!!!
C-clamp and an explosive tipped rocket placed right underneath the surface create this result. The first effort burned my hand b/c I didn't get the rocket completely under water.
great clearance by the rocket
This video makes me look like an idiot. Pay no attention to the hand holding the rocket. I aaaaa ....acidently dropped the rocketship because ....aaaaa.... I was still dizzy from spinning. And ....aaaaa...I also...aaaa.... dropped the camera too when i fell onto my bed.
Its a simple model rocket that I made. The first close up part isn't the same video segment as the second part but the close up makes it cooler looking. I used an A-83 engine from Estes. The wings edges were rounded and the nosecone was sanded a bit to make a sharper angle from what the kit gave. The rocket is named Sunstreak 2.
